“But I thought I should get on TikTok and let everybody know. Please keep his legacy alive.”

Other adventures saw him try to use an electric kettle to boil a package of hot dogs or eat a 30-plus-year-old box of cereal.
That was the same day LeJeune was not feeling well and called his mother, Claydorm said, according to TMZ.
