How Does It Feel To Wake Up In A New Bugatti? The Meme Explained

"I woke up in a new Bugatti," roars Future in the chorus of the hit track "Bugatti." This declaration has since been echoed across TikTok as a sound of triumph and victory. Fast cars, fast living, weird memes — nothing could go better together.

Where Does 'I Woke Up In A New Bugatti' Come From?

The song was originally put out by Ace Hood, featuring Future and Rick Ross, back in 2013. Almost a decade later, it started circulating on TikTok in May of 2023. The earliest video pairs the sound, for surreal effect, with a piece of bread getting chopped by a buzzsaw:


The sound picked up traction over the summer, frequently getting paired with bizarre images, videos and stories. The loud, aggressively joyful audio was often used alongside somewhat dark or just bizarre topics like the deaths of John F. Kennedy and people's grandmothers.


How Is 'I Woke Up In A New Bugatti' Used?

It seems to be used as a soundtrack for any kind of high-energy post that shows things and people moving very fast. This might be because Bugattis are a fast kind of car.


A real-life challenge also emerged, which saw young Zoomers seeming to literally zoom along with the track, miming a Bugatti as an off-camera friend pulls them away by their feet.


Why Do People Post 'I Woke Up In A New Bugatti?'

The song is, without a doubt, kind of a banger. But the sound effect also offers TikTokers a way to represent speed, intensity, and energy. This aspect of "I woke up in a new Bugatti" made it especially funny for TikTokers to pair it with a much more mellow and depressing bit of audio from comedian Bo Burnham. In these "I'm not… umm, well" TikToks, the sound is an inappropriate interruption.
