Troll, ’Bama, troll. Y’all have to check out the latest TikTok trend.

Haters have taken over the #Bamarush and #Alabamarush hashtags — both hubs for University of Alabama co-eds to submit sorority pledge tryout videos — in order to parody accents, attire and attitudes on full display by actual sister wannabes.

Ahead of the new school year, some colleges hold sorority recruitment before classes are even in session, and real-life Potential New Members (PNMs) at ’Bama are currently posting TikTok videos in which the pledge prospects dance or offer up a #fitcheck (show off an outfit) and an #OOTD (“Outfit of the Day”) — even rattling off clothing brands and stores — in the hopes of grabbing a sorority’s attention. In just three days, the combined hashtags have together topped 26 million views.

User @whatwouldjimmybuffetdo has one of the most-viewed videos under #Bamarush — topping 683,000 — in which Makayla and her friends model their rush outfits.

But as soon as TikTokers got wind of the PNM videos — as well as the pledges’ hypnotizing Southern accents — they rushed to the app and ripped on the spectacle, showing off down-market ensembles, mimicking pledges’ presentations and viciously lampooning the whole process.

Roll tide 🤪✌🏼 #bama #bamarush #rolltide #sorority #ootd

@hannahdubb you better dress‼️ #fyp #xyzbca #viral #SHEINcares

No shade all love. I love a sorority girl! Elle woods forever!!! #fyp #foryou #comedy #ellewoods #legallyblonde #gay #lgbtq

Of course, it wasn’t all about throwing shade. Some actually seemed in awe of the parade of pledge prospects, with one viewer confessing, “I don’t know how I got on sorority rush TikTok, but I never wanna leave,” and suggesting the over-the-top pledge process put the 2020 Tokyo Olympics “to shame.” And, by the way, he was not alone in that assessment.

Im having a BLAST 😂 #fyp #foryou #bama #sorority #rush #rue21BeYouChallenge

Meanwhile, others have even joined in by mocking their own apparently out-of-control obsession with Alabama sorority recruitment.

Roll, Crimson snide!

Not me caring more about Alabama rush as a 25 year old than I did about my own when I was in college #alabamarush #bamarush #recruitment
