Viral TikTok video shows 3 guys playing cards at Florida intersection
When you're waiting in traffic, go fish?
A TikTok video showing three guys playing cards at possibly a Cape Coral intersection has gone viral. "Dylan" — user name @driftydilly — posted the video Thursday with the caption, "Florida back at it with the long lights," with hashtags and tags: #redlightchallenge #florida #redlight #floridaredlight #fyp #foryou #foryoupage @paxten @rs3laz @angeliandrew
People quickly swarmed the comments and awarded thousands of hearts. Many comments reference a young boy watching the game from the back seat of the car in front of the card players. Others wondered who won the game and whether the trio of young men playing cards were the Jonas Brothers (it wasn't).
As of Friday, the video had more than 985,000 likes, almost 4,200 comments and more than 33,000 shares. Some users posted "duet" videos, which places the original video side by side with theirs so they can be watched simultaneously in the app.
The response seemed to surprise @driftydilly: "Literally didn't think this would blow up ... I LOVE YOU ALL!! <3"
Other top comments on the video:
• "Bro, those lights are no joke. I missed my kid's 6th and 7th birthday sitting at one light."
• "One time I met a girl at a red light. We got rly close then she broke my heart. All before the light turned green."
• "Florida doesn't cease to amaze me"
• "Bruh that looks like Del Prado and Pine Island"
While the caption didn't specify which intersection or whether it was really in Cape Coral, viewers guessed Del Prado Boulevard and Pine Island Road, Pines Boulevard and Flamingo Road in Pembroke Pines, Southeast Indian Street in Stuart, John Young Parkway in Orlando and other Florida cities like Jacksonville. Texas came up, too.
A white van in the clip does show a 239 area code phone number, which is Southwest Florida.
