Mommy? What Is It Caillou?, also known as Can I Get Roblox On My Xbox? or Can I Get Minecraft On My PC?, refers to a series of videos by TikToker @thevincentmottola in which he sings rap songs as Caillou asking his mom if he can get Roblox on his Xbox or Minecraft on his PC. The original Minecraft video was posted in October 2022 and inspired lip dubs, with the Roblox sequel releasing that November and inspiring a similar response. In February 2023, South Park featured the trend in the season 26 premiere episode where Kyle and Tolkien become TikTok stars, with the clip going viral shortly after and inspiring others to do the trend.
Can I Get Minecraft On My PC?
On October 19th, 2022, TikToker @thevincentmottola posted a video singing an original song where he plays the alternating roles of Caillou and his mom. In the song, Caillou asks his mom if he can get Minecraft on his PC and she asks if it's free. Caillou says it's $30, but his mom refuses to buy it and then suggests other games, all of which Caillou refuses. Finally, she suggests he plays with his sister Rosie and he screams, "Mommy!" The video gained over 10.9 million views in four months (shown below).
