    Drake Bell Reprised "Totally Kyle" For TikTok's Wipe It Down Challenge And My 2000s Self Is Screaming

    The TikTok that singlehandedly saved 2020.

    The Amanda Show was the best show of the 2000s. Sorry, I don't make the rules.


    In case you somehow haven't heard of it (am I old???), The Amanda Show was a sketch comedy show starring Amanda Bynes that aired on Nickelodeon in the 2000s.

    Every single sketch was comedy GOLD, but my personal favorite was "Totally Kyle," starring Drake Bell as a very Californian guitar player.


    He would tell stories like "One time this spider like was, like, hanging above my head, and I was all, 'Oooh spider,' so I blew on it then the spider, like, fell on my face and I was all 'Ahhh! Spider!' and the spider was all 'Ahh! Kyle!'"

    It's been 18 years since The Amanda Show last aired, but yesterday Drake Bell decided to bless us all with a reprise of his character while doing the TikTok "Wipe It Down" challenge.

    Bell starts the challenge looking FINE (did I have a crush on him in Drake and Josh?? Absolutely), giving a smirk to the camera.

    That's the face of a man who knows he's about to save 2020.

    He sprays the mirror, starts to wipe, and then...
