Open The Noor, also known as Open Na Noor, is a viral video taken on a Ring camera that shows a presumably drunk old man at a front door saying "open the noor" when trying to say "open the door." The video was featured in a parody news segment on the YouTube channel Outside Edition. The segment was about Only in Ohio memes and the "Open The Noor" video was followed by a young man saying, "I think it's about time I get the f--k out of Ohio. It's eight in the morning. I'm just trying to have my morning coffee." The "Open The Noor" video went viral on TikTok in December 2022, inspiring a TikTok sound, recreations and photo slideshows that imagined Breaking Bad's Walter Jr. saying the phrase.


On October 30th, 2022, TikToker[1] samantha_roseeeee posted a video taken by her front door's Ring camera that showed a presumably drunk stranger trying to get into her house by saying "Open the noor" at the camera.

On December 12th, 2022, the Youtube[2] channel Outside Edition (a parody version of news outlet Inside Edition) uploaded a video titled, "Normal Roller Coaster in Ohio..💀 (Only in Ohio)," in which the creator pretended that "Only in Ohio" videos were submitted to the parody news station by civilians. At the 0:25-minute mark, Outside Edition showed TikToker samantha_roseeeee's "Open The Noor" video and followed the clip with a young man saying, "I think it's about time I get the f--k out of Ohio. It's eight in the morning. I'm just trying to have my morning coffee." Over the course of 10 days, the video received roughly 21,200 views (shown below).
