It’s Official: The Wiggles Are More Popular Than Donald Trump And We Have The Receipts

In case you missed it, the US president, Donald Trump, held a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma over the weekend where attendance was significantly lower than expected.

This was despite an announcement from Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, saying that there had been more than one million ticket requests for the event.

According to The New York Times, the rows of empty seats at the 19,000-capacity BOK Center was largely due to TikTok users and K-Pop fans registering for tickets and then not showing.

There was no ticketed price for the rally, but attendees had to register for a ticket online.

In another twist to the story, it’s been revealed by Twitter users that The Wiggles — a widely popular Australian children’s music group — sold out the very same arena at one of their ticketed concerts.

@funder The Wiggles sold out that arena in 2012 and they charged for tickets. And attracted a higher level of intelligence in the crowd.

Now, for those that don’t know (I’m looking at you, international peeps), even though The Wiggles was formed in 1991, the group still has a strong following with both young and old Australians.

Which basically means that news of the group outselling a Trump rally was the perfect fodder for some hilarious reactions, once again proving their longstanding popularity.

Anthony Field — aka the Blue Wiggle, who’s been performing with them since they formed — even took the time to add his thoughts to the situation, saying that The Wiggles concert had “a better light show”.

And I think this tweet perfectly captures everyone’s reaction.
