Hilarious TikTok Video Credits Vikings Fans’ Pain to “Skoliosis”
Are you a Vikings fan suffering from neck pain, head pain, stress, anger or constant disappointment? If so you may have a bad case of Skoliosis.
Following yet another Vikings loss over the weekend, a recent video on TikTok offers a hilarious diagnosis for the aches and pains of Vikings fans everywhere. "True Life as a MN Vikings fan," reads the video's caption. In the video, TikTok user LineBackerBarbie (aka Angie) can be seen wearing a purple and gold Minnesota Vikings t-shirt.
"Are you a Minnesota Vikings fan who suffers from constant neck pain, head pain, stress, anger or constant disappointment?" a voiceover asks. Angie nods along and indicates her own symptoms. The voiceover continues, "You may be entitled to compensation due to a condition called Skoliosis." Text on the screen reads "Skoliosis is a serious condition" and "Call 1-800-Kirk-Cousins for your free consult."

The video is, of course, a play on words of the Vikings formidable Skol chant and the real medical condition Scoliosis. According to Mayo Clinic, Scoliosis is "a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty." While it can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause is otherwise unknown. About 3% of adolescents have scoliosis.
Over the weekend, the Vikings lost to the Tennessee Titans 30-31 by a last-minute field goal, dashing the hopes of Vikings fans everywhere with a win/loss record of 0-3.
