Mia Gillespie, a 19-year-old college sophomore from Illinois, was having dinner with her mom, her childhood friends, and their moms for parents' weekend at their university when they decided to make this TikTok and share it with the caption, "Moms gone wild":
When asked about how she feels about the duets and response to her TikTok, Mia told BuzzFeed, "I love seeing how nice everyone is about our parents in the comments, because it makes our moms feel so good. It blew my mind to see everyone guessing [everything from] what our moms’ kitchens look like to the type of hand soap they use in the duets."
And the moms? "[They're] blown away by the response to the video. They didn't know what TikTok really was before this, and now each of them have an account and love watching the duets and reading all the comments under the posts. They feel like they're famous now. All my friends love the response we are getting and find the duets hilarious."
Mia added, "It's funny how one single video can have such a huge response. People have actually noticed my mom and asked if she was from TikTok, and I know people who have noticed the other moms as well."
Mia and friends, we love your moms! And in case anyone was wondering, they recently made another TikTok answering some of the guesses in the duets:
