"Blows Up Pancakes With Mind" refers to short videos, usually posted to TikTok, depicting a character blowing another character's pancakes up "with mind". The videos may contain different settings, characters and styles, but the scenario stays the same: The first character is pouring syrup on their pancakes, a second character is shown, typically concentrating or smug, while the catchphrase "blows up pancakes with mind" is heard. The first character exclaims "ma fuckin pancakes," and the pancakes explode.
