Were you born in the 1990s or early 2000s and feel particularly nostalgic today? Store! Because Steve Burns, aka Steve from “Blue’s Clues”, has a mystery to solve and the elusive riddle is TikTok.
But hey, bless his Gen X heart – he’s trying.
The 48-year-old actor and musician posted his first ever TikTok on Monday, admitting pretty much that when it comes to this kind of social media, the former “Blues Clues” host is completely ignorant.
“I do not know at all how to use TikTok … at all,” says Burns after a very cheerful, child-friendly introduction.
“I kind of do not even know what it is if you could tell me in just like, the comments or something I thank you,” he whispers shyly embarrassed.
So if you get TikTok, press record on your phones and help that poor man out! Send him an informative step-by-step video. Tell him that users have replaced the laugh-cry emoji with the skull emoji in the comments section so he does not get completely confused (and possibly scared) when you find a TikTok he posts funny. Hell, send him Mountain Goats’ “No Children” dance trend – if nothing else, he will recognize the song!
And why should you waste your time helping Steve? Because he helped you a lot in your childhood – he expanded your vocabulary, taught you shapes, he even made salt and pepper shakers seem a lot more fun (as well as French).
In addition, he has recently apologized about leaving you to go to college.
So think of his need for once, because aside from his request for help, his second TikTok proves that the guy is still clearly a giver.
