In a viral video series, TikToker Nadia (@nadztheehokage444) and her sister watch a pig in their father’s truck bed while discussing the animal’s release.
“POV: you and your sister [are] I plan to let the pig run away and be free because my Tongan father wants to spin it on a pole over a fire,” reads the overlay text. The TikToker used Esosa’s trendy sound, which repeats “I wanna go home”.
The video implies that the pig should be roasted for puaka tunu, a classic Polynesian and Tongan dish. In the caption, Nadia wrote: “I promise you [I’m] do not eat puaka tmro.”

In the comments, users debate whether the sisters should release the pig or not.
“I hated watching my uncles do it. But I always ended up eating it,” commented one user.
“DO IT,” said another.
“I almost tried today but my dad did it before me,” shared a third user.
In an update comment, Nadia revealed to her followers that her father let the sisters keep the pig and they named him Kayo. However, in a follow-up video, Nadia said her pig didn’t make it through the night.
“I woke up this morning and Kayo’s cage was empty,” she said. “My dad really made us think we were going to keep him. EVIL.”
“I thought my dad changed…People never change,” she added.

Nadia showed the cooked pig on the table while the family prepared their plates.
The comments section sympathized and mocked the sadness of the TikToker.
“No way did he just give consent that you’re basically just attached to be like SIKE,” one user commented.
“This is so sad… Pass the salt,” said another.
“Tell the truth, did you get a plate?” asked a third user. Nadia responded and said, “I didn’t lay a finger on Kayo. It’s the OGs who ate it to the crumbs.”
The Daily Dot contacted Nadia via TikTok comment and Instagram message.
