Yeah, you read that right. Creative Tik Tok users are making thirst traps of politicians from the Netherlands — Prime Minister Mark Rutte being the star of the show. Naturally, we had to compile some of these gems for educational purposes.
For those of you (millennials) who are unfamiliar with the terms “thirst trap” and “Tik Tok,” allow me to explain. You can think of a “thirst trap” as a creative choice whereby footage of the subject is edited to make it “sexy.” This is usually done by slowing down the video clip and adding some come-hither music.
But enough explanation — let’s just show you.
Hot for Mark Rutte
First up, is Mark Rutte. We don’t know if it’s all the press conferences he’s giving or all the cycling he’s doing but some people definitely have the hots for this man.
The videos often go deep into the archives.
Is this what’s causing the warm weather? 🥵
Edithoe69 had us scared for a second there. ✋😩
It’s not just Rutte…
Think people just have the hots for the prime minister? There’s one other figure who has drawn quite a bit of attention his way in recent months…
Yup, that’s right Daddy de Jo — I mean Minister for Health, Hugo de Jonge. To be fair, when he tweets those vaccination openings it’s just 😘.
In fact, quite a few politicians have been added to the edits..
Please no. Not Thierry Baudet and Geert Wilders. ✋🤢
The star of the show
Thankfully, the real queen has also been recognised for her efforts. 😍
Love you gurl, keep doing your thing. ✌️😙
