In their video Jogia used the viral audio “I’m a male, I’m a man, I’m a he. I don’t get into that mentally ill stuff.” Of course, Jogia was using the audio ironically. The caption for the video reads, “Not that he honestly and if I’m being real? I probably get into that mentally ill stuff…” Users responded to the video gleefully, saying “ONE OF US, ONE OF US.”
