The 10 best boshes from Big John on TikTok, ranked
Healthy bit of Chinese? Bosh
TiKTok has often been the home to iconic parents. As young consumers, we’re obsessed with content about parents and teachers because we find it equal parts relatable and completely alien. The impact of iconic parents like the mums that badly lip synced to Aly & AJ’s Potential Breakup Song took off so much it got the musical duo to rerelease the song. My favourite dad of recent is Big John, the high priest of BOSH. John’s content is from the account @willbatross on TikTok, and chronicles some of his best meals, antics and general Essex chaos all finished off with a timeless declaration of his catchphrase: BOSH. His son’s a boxer and he’s good mates with Thomas from The Apprentice, but the star here is Big John in all his glory. Here are the 10 best Big John bosh videos on TikTok, ranked:
10. David Train bosh

In this hallowed footage, Big John is tucking into a Chinese, which he is wan to do. This time however, the fateful scran is courtesy of David Train. It’s one of the more eccentric and mysterious declarations of bosh from Big John on TikTok, and that’s what makes it so special.
9. Strategic curry sauce bosh

When Big John parts wisdom like this, you better listen. “Always keep two curry sauces in your car, just in case you never know where your next portion of chips are coming from.” That’s an ancient proverb as far as I’m concerned. Bosh.
8. Beef wellington bosh

1. Told off bosh
@willbatross Healthy bit of Chinese #helathy #chinese #bosh #karen #food #takeaway #bosh ♬ original sound – Willbatross
The most mischievous bosh in the mix is also the best, with Big John and his wife in dispute over tea. Whilst she insists she cooked him lamb, Big John says “I’ve had no tea! Nothing you could eat anyway. Bosh!” An inedible lamb bosh. Two teas bosh. A Big John TikTok bosh for the history books.
