  • A TikToker posted a video showing a hidden chamber behind a hatch in a bathroom wall.
  • They claimed that the passage was inside a bathroom at their school.

A TikToker found a hidden chamber in the wall of a school bathroom, a viral TikTok shows.

The video depicts the person filming entering a large bathroom stall before the camera pans to an open wall hatch. Inside is a small, dark chamber with a cinderblock wall, pipes, what appear to be discarded plastic gloves — and a paper sign with the word "enter" and an arrow pointing left drawn on it in blue marker.

In the background, a high-pitched, sung version of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's highly memed verse from Tech N9ne's song "Face Off" plays.

The video was posted by the TikTok user @sr.kingeduar, who has 83,600 followers and whose account lists their name as Eduar Melendez. The bathroom video is their most viral to date with approximately 5 million likes and 30.1 million views. It's simply captioned, "what I found in the school bathroom."

Melendez has posted several follow-up videos to the original, although they don't offer much detail as to the nature of the hidden chamber. The second video shows a view of the back of the passage before abruptly cutting to a video of a small dog baring its teeth.

Another follow-up video, which has the on-screen caption "let's finally see what there is," shows another dark view of the back of the passage, but no further clarity. In response to a comment on the first TikTok video, Melendez alleged that the other side of the passage leads to the girls' bathroom.

Some comments on Melendez's videos compared the passage to the video game "Among Us," an extremely popular hidden role multiplayer game in which players assigned the role of "imposter" travel around through vents and attempt to kill "crewmates" before they're discovered. Commenters compared the hatch in Melendez's video to a vent in the video game.

One of Melendez's follow-up videos references this by replying to a comment reading "*among us music plays*," reposting the original video with a popular Among Us-inspired remix.

Similar kinds of hidden rooms and passageways have gone viral on TikTok in the past. In March, a TikTok user posted about discovering an abandoned second apartment in her New York City building after she removed her bathroom mirror. Another TikTok user who lived in the same apartment building went viral after she realized that she could also possibly have a unit hidden behind her mirror, although she ultimately didn't.

Melendez did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
