‘Take It or Double It’: Student Goes Viral Handing Out Shots on Texas Tech Campus
If you’ve been on TikTok recently, then you are probably familiar with the ‘take it or double it and give it to the next person' trend. The trend works exactly how it sounds where you can either take what’s being offered to you, or pass, and the next person participating gets offered twice the amount, or can also pass and double it.
This trend is most often done with money, but can be done with anything someone wants to give away. This is what led The Boys of 98, a group of guys from the University of Colorado-Boulder to give out fireball shots to college students. And for some reason, they were doing this on the Texas Tech University campus. With over 3.5 million views, the video blew up on TikTok, bringing in 353 thousand likes and counting.
The most shocking thing you’ll find about these types of videos is when people keep passing on the deal, continuing to double it, until there is an unnecessary amount being given away. That is exactly what happened in this video, where the final person to end up with the Fireball shots had a crazy amount.
After that video blew up, they made a couple more videos on the Texas Tech campus. In the second one, they gave out full bottles of Tito's, also leaving the last person with too much booze to casually carry around campus. The third video was a bit more meaningful, asking to trade vapes for nicotine-free alternatives along with cash.
