Following the combined powers of Waterparks and K-Pop fandoms, #HOPELESSISGOINGTOJAILPARTY is now trending No. 1 in the U.S.

 Original Story: July 20 @ 7:45 p.m. EST

Two days ago, Waterparks toyed with our emotions after supposedly posting the official music video for “Turbulent” on Twitter. Fans quickly rushed to YouTube but were unable to find the video, quickly realizing that the video shared on Twitter was actually “Turbulent” over the BTS video for “IDOL.”

In typical Waterparks fashion, the joke doesn’t stop there. Now it looks like Hopeless Records have been pulled into the ordeal as the Parx fandom and confused K-Pop fans unite to get #HOPELESSISGOINGTOJAILPARTY trending.

It all started when the band took to Twitter to tease fans with the “official music video” for their latest track.

The joke didn’t stop there as Waterparks continued to play with our emotions.

Even the band’s label, Hopeless Records, couldn’t find themselves exempt from this one.

Their response was perfect.

Of course, that sparked a whole new purpose for this ongoing joke as the Parx fandom was called to action.

 Fans acted immediately, causing the hashtag to rise up the trending ladder.

And it only got better from there.

At the time of posting, #HOPELESSISGOINGTOJAILPARTY was trending No. 2 in the U.S.

While we wait for the ACTUAL music video to drop (or for Hopeless to go to jail), you can check out the visual for “Turbulent” below.

When do you think we’ll get the “Turbulent” music video? Do you think this would have happened if Hopeless would have stanned Loona? Sound off in the comments below!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
