If you’ve seen the Roman Empire Trend, you need to see the former Springboks’ responses! If you aren’t in the loop, here’s what’s going on:
Global (21 September 2023) — The Roman Empire trend has catapulted TikTok into a whole new spiral of questions, laughs and conspiracy theories, not unlike the Girl Math and Girl Dinner trends.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, the Roman Empire trend essentially encourages people to ask the men in their lives how often they think about the Roman Empire, resulting in unexpected frequencies.
@ambarrail This trend is incredible. Some of the best ones #romanempire #romanempirecompilation ♬ original sound – ambarrai
The trend quickly went viral after the responses (to the surprise of millions) saw many men share that they think about the Roman Empire fairly frequently, with answers ranging from monthly to a few times a week and even daily. As such, it’s had the internet relishing in all kinds of curiosity as to what else we might not know about the inner workings of some men’s minds and which topics are seemingly, of enough importance that they’re mentally recurring.
The stance of those answering is giggle-worthy (at least, if you’re not someone who revisits this chapter of history regularly) because of their energy that almost feels as though we’ve all found out a great secret.
But, the best responses by far come from none other than former Springboks, Bryan Habana, Jean De Villiers and Schalk Burger.
In response to a Rugby World Cup interview segue, the three ex-Springboks were naturally asked how much they think of the Roman Empire, and their answers were priceless.

Whether masculinity and its connection to the Roman Empire trend hasn’t yet been fully explored, our Boks are the hilarious outliers whose honesty can’t be faulted.
