Starting a new hobby can require a level of patience and perseverance that is difficult to achieve. The process often leads to frustration and can even make you want to give up, especially when you see how far other people have come in their own journey. Jealousy is a common part of the process, a less common part is your competitor simultaneously acting as an unwanted nuisance in your home.
When she set out to try herself as a DJ, the woman went viral Tick tock realized that someone else had already hit her; A cockroach was working on some incredible new mixes in their DJ setup. Understandably, she let out a scream and some much-needed swear words, but one can’t help but notice that the song the cockroach had composed wasn’t too shabby.
The comments from viewers are almost as hilarious as the video itself. Many people wanted to know if the DJ Cockroach was available to hire and asked him to play music for their next party, wedding or club opening. Some swore they recognized him as their ex who had just broken into the DJ scene: DJ Khaled or even Diplo. Others just wanted her to give the animal a moment in the sun as the first world-famous cockroach DJ, saying she could only hope to be as good as the bug. At least she could benefit from his talents and perhaps let him continue to live with her. “The little guy is having the time of his life,” said one viewer, and others agreed it should stay that way.
Despite the creepy, if not lovable, little DJs, cockroach infestations are a real problem, especially in the southern United States, and most of them don’t have that much talent. According to CNN, If you live in the South, you may be more susceptible to cockroaches that won’t go away. A census they conducted found that nine of the ten largest cockroach cities were in the south, largely due to the cold-blooded nature of the animals. Some of the most popular cockroach cities include Miami, New Orleans, Phoenix and Atlanta. They thrive in warm climates. The warmer it is, the faster they can complete their reproductive cycles. That means more cockroaches, most of whom probably won’t be DJ prodigies.
Regardless, the next time you think you’re on the verge of a budding DJ career, consider checking your house for cockroaches. Apparently they’re attracted to rent-free living and the spotlight.
