A lot of people are trying to find the user “codgod76” on TikTok for a very weird reason. Who is he and why is he trending?
The reason for this trend is actually a prank that everyone is loving. Check out how it started below.
Why are people searching for @codgod76 on TikTok?
It all started when a user named WILDCAT on YouTube played a game of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but changed his username on the game to “TikTok codgod76”. He went ahead and told other players to follow him on TikTok.
During the game, it was said a few times that “codgod76” is a “TikTok phenom” and everyone should definitely check out his channel. After hyping up the name so much, a few players must have checked the account.
The truth is WILDCAT is a phenomenal Call of Duty player and putting out a username is sure to get a lot of clouts. He posted a video of his gameplay with the title – “Modern Warfare but I pretend to be a 45-year-old TikTok phenom named codgod76…” on 29 May 2021.
This video has received 617k views so far and it has not even been a month (21 June 2021). Even though the title says that he is pretending, a lot of his viewers from his audience of 7.87 million went to TikTok to find this guy.
This led to a hashtag being created called #codgod76 as well. There is someone out there who has that username and is suddenly getting a lot of followers even though they didn’t do anything.
The story didn’t end there… WILDCAT uploaded two more videos to update us on the matter. You can check out what this Call of Duty God did in the game below.
TLDR – WILDCAT, a Call of Duty player, pretending to be a TikTok phenom with the username “TikTok codgod76” and that resulted in everyone trying to find him on TikTok with that username. Some random guy with that username is getting a lot of followers suddenly without any effort.
