This Guy Has Gone Viral For Showing Off His "Basic White Sister's" House, Because I Think We All Know Someone With A House Like This

"Hello sweet cheeks."

If there's something you should know about me, it's that I'm kind of obsessed with "Live, laugh, love" culture.

"Live Laugh Love" spelled out with block letters

For those who don't know, "Live, laugh, love" culture is basically a super-popular home decorating trend involving covering your home with positive affirmations printed on slabs of wood or tin metal sheets.

HomeGoods is the mecca for this kind of stuff.

Now that you know about "Live, laugh, love," let me tell you about John Michael Baker. He's gone super viral on TikTok lately for his "basic white sister's home" series.

In the videos, he goes around his basic white sister's house with some sort of wreath on his head and shows off all of her basic shit.

She's got a lot — like, she basically lives in her own personal HomeGoods.

There's the classic "Hello sweet cheeks."

The super-relatable "In our home let love abide and bless those who step inside."

And, of course, the iconic "Just livin' our best life."

But it's not even so much about the sheer quantity of signs she has as it is about the way he says it.

Like, I could watch him read an entire Michaels store's worth of these signs:

So far, it's a five-part series:

And I'm just wondering how many of these damn things she has:

He just released a fall-themed one, because of course she has a ton of fall shit:

And there she is, our basic queen!
