Jimmy Giggle (Jimmy Rees), you know that guy on ABC Kids who hangs out with a bunch of toy owls? Yeah well he has TikTok and it is quite possibly the best thing on the internet at the moment.
Apparently he’s had a TikTok for a while now, but people are only just discovering it after the Giggle and Hoot host made an exquisitely creative video about “The Guy Who Comes Up With Packaging.” I honestly did not expect to laugh out loud, this is because over the years I’ve become way too accustomed to Reese’s high-pitched stage voice and I can’t stand it. But his real voice on the other hand? Well, let’s just say I can see why he’s popular with so many mums.
To everyone surprised to see @jimmyrees, aka Jimmy Giggle, trending today: Jimmy got on TikTok a year ago & is huge there — 241k followers & several videos with 1m+ views, including 'packaging guy' from last week pic.twitter.com/FXaFxpCW2P

The video is so hilarious that prominent Australian writer and Radio/TV personality Marieke Hardy shared it on Twitter. Since then it’s blown up, and everyone now obsessed with Jimmy Giggle.
I enjoyed this an absurd amount.https://t.co/JvN0boihQU

I mean the range on this man. He’s a kids TV presenter, comedian and Dancing with the Stars contestant. Is there anything he can’t do?? (Don’t answer that)
Even ABC News presenter Virginia Trioli is obsessed with this man.
Oh that’s glorious. That’s the laugh I needed!

Honestly, me too.
Saw that Jimmy Giggle with trending and immediately thought the worst. That was a rough 3 seconds.

If you’re yearning for some more Jimmy Giggle, he’s also got an incredible YouTube channel with extended versions of his TikTok vids.
However, if you’re like me and have the attention span of a mere goldfish, his TikTok content is more than enough.
Not all heroes wear capes, but all legends wear pyjamas.
