The Boob Light and How It Came To Be a Common Household Fixture

As he looked up at the ceiling of his girlfriend's house, Vine star Michael LoPriore noticed something about the lighting fixture attached. It was in the shape of a bowl and was fastened to the ceiling by a button driven at the center of the bulb. It looked like a female human breast. And a thought came to him, inspiring a song that would go down in internet history.

Over the last six years, LoPriore’s Vine has given a name to virtually everyone’s bedroom light. On Instagram, there are more than 1,200 #ceilingtitty posts as people identify the boob-shaped lamp in the background of their photos — and record their own covers. (LoPriore’s six-second track is a true earworm.)
On TikTok, users remix LoPriore’s video, adding their own #ceilingtitty to a long chain of musical light fixtures.
