About

Takis Are Seriously Intense refers to a series of commercials featuring streamer Ninja and TikToker Charli D'Amelio eating Takis and saying, "Takis are seriously intense," then gaining a massive rush of power, resembling someone going Super Saiyan. The ads ran on YouTube in June 2021 and ads became the subject of video edits that month on YouTube and Instagram.

Origin

On May 31st, 2021, the official Takis YouTube[2][3] channel uploaded a series of advertisements featuring Charli D'Amelio and Ninja eating Takis. Ninja was given two commercials. In the 15-second one, a boy eats Takis, inspiring a tornado of Takis to spin around his body. He says, "That was intense." Ninja then picks up a Taki, says, "Takis are seriously intense," takes a bite, then appears to go Super Saiyan as the two begin gaming together (shown below, left). In the six-second ad, Ninja starts a camera and says, "Gaming is intense, but Takis are seriously intense," then bites a Taki, going Super Saiyan (shown below, right). The ads were used on various YouTube videos throughout the month of June.



Charli D'Amelio's ads are similar, featuring a girl dancing and eating Takis in the 15-second cut then being surrounded by a Takis tornado, followed by D'Amelio saying, "Takis are seriously intense," and similarly surging with power then dancing with the girl (shown below, left). The six-second cut simply shows the back half of the ad (shown below, right).

In early June, memers began editing the videos in various ways, often adding sound effects after Ninja or Charli eats the Taki. On June 6th, 2021, Instagram[5] user @wokebans used the Charli D'Amelio video in an image macro format, garnering over 30,000 views and 3,300 likes in a week (shown below).

On June 9th, 2021, Instagram[4] user @ocpoods posted a video combining the Charli D'Amelio and Ninja "Takis are seriously intense" ads with "anime" footage over the Kanye West song "Father Stretch My Hands Part 1," (shown below).
