Drake Bell really just reprised his role as Totally Kyle from Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show in 2020.
Drake Bell is giving Nickelodeon kids everything they want by bringing back Totally Kyle in TikTok's Wipe It Down challenge.
Drake Bell may be best known for playing the iconic role of Drake Parker in the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh but fans of the 33-year-old will also remember him from his appearances in the beloved sketch show All That and, first and foremost, The Amanda Show. Drake actually starred alongside Amanda Bynes as one of The Amanda Show's main cast members.
During his time on The Amanda Show, Drake played many hilarious parts and now he's reprised the role of Kyle on TikTok.
TikTok users will likely already know exactly what the Wipe It Down challenge is. The new viral challenge sees people literally wipe down a mirror while 'Wipe It Down' by BMW Kenny plays in the background. There's a catch though; the person doing the challenge films themselves in two outfits and they edit it so it looks like they magically change outfits when they wipe.
Yesterday (May 27), Drake posted a video of himself doing the challenge. In his first outfit, he's dressed as himself but in his second look, he brings back his legendary Totally Kyle costume complete with his wig and tie-dye t-shirt. Totally Kyle was, of course, a Californian guitar player who would recount the most inane stories as though they were really profound.
Mere moments after Drake shared the TikTok video, it broke the internet and fans quickly began praising him for the clip and his career at large.
