The E4 sitcom The Inbetweeners, which first graced British TV screens in 2008 and led to two successful films, is now causing a stir across the Atlantic.

The show, which chronicles the misadventures of four teenage boys as they attempt to navigate adolescence and impress girls, has not been fully available on American networks. However, it's found a new lease of life on TikTok, where US users are sharing its most memorable scenes.

Despite an American remake airing in 2012 that was short-lived, only spanning one series before MTV pulled the plug, the original UK version has found an enthusiastic fan in Texan Andy Padilla. His TikTok account, dedicated to the British comedy, has seen one clip from the first film garner over a million views.

In this particular scene, the boys are seen awkwardly dancing in a nearly empty nightclub, trying to win over the girls. "I only stumbled onto it accidentally. It's absolutely comedic gold," commented Andy, revealing his recent discovery of the show.

"I've only found it last week, I'm in Texas. I don't know many people who have heard of it."

British fans have been quick to express their joy at Americans experiencing The Inbetweeners for the first time, with one TikTok user commenting: "Us Brits love watching Americans seeing it for the first time! ".

Another concurred: "Seeing someone experience this for the first time is class." A third chimed in: "Americans watching Inbetweeners will always make me laugh."

Meanwhile, a fourth enthusiast implored: "More Inbetweeners reactions please, I find this hilarious."

In a similar vein, other American fans who were just discovering the show shared their enthusiasm. "Never seen this before but it's seems so friggen hilarious! " exclaimed one new admirer. Another confessed: "I've watched this clip 10 times. I'm laughing harder each time,".

On the flip side, Brits were quick to suggest other UK comedy gems like Misfits, Friday Night Dinner and Bottom to their American counterparts with a penchant for British humour.
