A voice actor started a new meme on TikTok. Now “waffle fries” represent people’s bizarre animal encounters.
Kyle DeNigris voices the animated character Boozoo from the horror series The Walten Files. On June 29th, he uploaded a skit featuring Boozoo, who is a possessed animatronic in the show. DeNigris pretended to be afraid of the spooky character, to which Boozoo replied matter-of-factly, “I want waffle fries.” Now TikTokers are lip-syncing to DeNigris’ sound to describe their unsettling animal encounters.

Then he cut to a clip of Boozoo who said, with a deadpan cadence, “I want waffle fries.”
The video is hilarious and weird. That’s probably why TikTok quickly embraced it.
