Inside Percy Pig and Colin the Caterpillar’s unhinged world of M&S TikTok

Colin and Percy are best friends, obvs x


On August 20th in the year of our lord 2020, Marks and Spencer posted its first ever TikTok, and an icon was born. The TikTok has life-sized mascots of Percy Pig (like the sweets) and Colin the Caterpillar (like the cake). Percy and Colin recreate scenes from Bake Off and Love Actually, with captions like #HotPigSummer. In short: It’s unhinged, but you can’t help but watch and get sucked deep into the world of M&S TikTok.

With the help of Percy and Colin, Marks and Spencer has amassed almost 95k TikTok followers and 1.5 million likes. The M&S account features celebrities like Tom Daley and Fred from First Dates, and even shows Percy Pig and Colin the Caterpillar in their own versions of popular TikTok challenges, songs and trends, such as the “oh no no no no no”, Buss It, and M to the B.

Comments on the videos include: “Please when will someone stop Percy? He is too powerful”, “I live for that pig”, and “Is it bad that I would happily volunteer to be in the Percy suit?”
