But of course, there is a right way and a wrong way to do every TikTok challenge. So, if you want to join the crowd, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the Flip the Switch Challenge.
What is TikTok’s Switch Challenge?
For those who may have missed it, the Flip the Switch Challenge has recently become a phenomenon online due to its simplicity. However, there is more to it than just turning lights on and off, as most people would assume.
In order to complete the Flip the Switch Challenge, competitors must have a partner and stand in front of a mirror together. One person is at the closest position to the mirror, holding still while filming with a mobile device. Meanwhile, the other party is seen dancing along to the tune as Drake begins to rap, “Look, I just turned a switch (Flipped, flipped).”
When this signal is given, the lights in the room are turned out and on, revealing that the actors have switched places and attire.
The challenge started as a pleasant opportunity for creators to hang out with their loved ones, but it has since gotten out of hand. Over 6.9 billion people have seen the Flip the Switch Challenge so far. This is exactly how it should be interpreted.
How did the “flip the switch” challenge start?
Bella and Dallin Lambert, the pair behind the TikTok account @dallinxbella, released the video that served as the inspiration for the “turn the switch” challenge, according to Time. Since then, tens of thousands of individuals have undertaken the challenge alongside their partners, close friends, and family.
How do I do the “flip the switch” challenge?
The viral video challenge comprises two people standing in front of a mirror while listening to the 2018 song “Nonstop.” One individual stands closest to the mirror, unmoving, capturing footage on their phone.
Meanwhile, the other person dances to the music until Drake sings the opening line, “Look, I just turned a switch (Flipped, flipped).” This cue causes the light switch in the room to be turned off and on, revealing that the two participants switched clothing and positions during the changeover.
The “flip the switch” challenge is simple enough, but it’s always enjoyable to put a new spin on it. There are many ways to distinguish a 15-second film, whether it features unexpected guests or intriguing costumes.
Celebrities and influencers alike are getting in on the fun.
It is general knowledge that as soon as a TikTok trend takes hold, the app will be flooded with people showcasing their originality. Celebrities are also joining in on the fun, even though influencers always go above and above with their interpretations of certain tasks.

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are a famous Hollywood couple that created one of the most popular Flip the Switch videos. While J.Lo is renowned for constantly nailing the dance moves, Alex is not that talented. Thus, their film gives the story a humorous spin.
Not to mention, the Flip the Switch video by Senator Elizabeth Warren is hilarious. She teamed up with the Saturday Night Live character played by actress Kate McKinnon. And everyone can see the senator busting a move and having fun in the video.
