The popularity of this meme highlights how social media can revive old trends and make new ones overnight.
The meme “John Pork is calling” has become viral on TikTok, almost six years after the character’s creation.

Numerous TikTok accounts have identified themselves as “the real John Pork,” causing the original JP on Instagram to be taken aback by all the new attention he’s receiving. He recently revealed on Instagram that his follower count has increased by several thousand due to his popularity on TikTok. Despite not having a TikTok account, John is grateful for the exposure and may create an account soon to further enhance his internet notoriety.
