Hayes latest single has been topping the charts, dominating TikTok and now even appearing on televisions worldwide as part of the new Applebees commercial. While the song has resonated with millions of fans across the globe, one fan on TikTok shared his frustration when the catchy tune song comes on the radio.
“Me when this shit comes on the radio,” the TikTok user MulletMan669 captioned the clip, which shows him ripping his car’s stereo out of the dashboard, as Hayes’ “Fancy Like” hit soundtracked the video.
In the clip, MulletMan669 is seen physically destroying his car’s stereo as he ripped it from the car’s console. After ripping it out of the dashboard, he threw the stereo, further damaging it.
The video has amassed over 5.6 million views since its release on Friday, August 27.
On Thursday (Sept. 2), Hayes, wearing a Blue Otter Polarized hat and black Country Swag Hoodie, reacted to the clip on TikTok from his Tennessee home in the form of a video duet, which he captioned “gotta give props for the creativity,” alongside the hashtag #FancyLike.

Hayes’ reaction earned responses by fellow country superstar Thomas Rhett as well as Monument Records label-mate Tigirlily and Smack Songs artist Kylie Morgan.
“Prayers up for that dude,” Rhett commented on the clip, while Tigirlily said “Funny, we have the opposite reaction. TURN THAT UP.”
“Bro prayers up for all of us! He was just clowning…or maybe not haha either way gotta give him props tho cuz it’s funny,” Hayes replied to Rhett.
“Haha you have hater, you’ve officially made it,” Morgan added.
“Fancy Like” is a viral hit co-written by Hayes alongside Cameron Bartolini, Josh Jenkins and Shane Stevens that appears on Hayes’ latest project, Country Stuff. Upon release the track quickly climbed the charts, reaching No. 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, marking his highest-charting single to date.
The song amassed such popularity that it even brought back the Oreo Milkshake at Applebees!
