James Droz, a TikToker with special needs from Bartlesville, made “what happened?” videos about basketball and football games that went viral. About 700,000 people follow him on TikTok, and most of them love his catchphrase.
Droz makes these videos after big NFL games. In them, he asks the losing team, “What happened?”, which has become his catchphrase.
James’s first video to go viral was in January 2022, when he asked the Minnesota Vikings, “What happened?” Over the next ten months, about 652,100 people watched the video, and it got 65,000 likes. In his next video, he asked the Pittsburgh Steelers the same question, which got over 1.7 million views and 170,300 likes.
James has watched sports since he was a kid. Susan Hainzinger, his mother, said that Droz used to remember the score of any football game he watched. James Droz played many different sports when he was younger.
Droz was on the Bartlesville football team, but he couldn’t always play on the field because of his special needs. He helped their coach, though, with the team.
Last year, he even scored a touchdown against Choctaw. The crowd cheered the loudest for him, and everyone liked James.
His mother’s response was very emotional. She said that they were about to do something that every parent of a child with special needs has prayed for. She said that it was like living in a dream and that it was an honor to be a part of something that doesn’t happen to all kids.

In November 2022, James Droz was asked to watch a game between his team and Oklahoma State. When his mother told him he was going to watch the game in person, it came as a surprise to him.
His mother talked about how excited he was about the games. He doesn’t stop cheering from his seat, and if the refs make a mistake, he tells them so. Hainzinger is thankful to James’ followers and everyone else who made it possible for them to go to a big sporting event like Bedlam.
She said that all of this will stay with him and affect what he does in the future. She went on:
“You can’t predict what your kids will do… It will be an event that I, my family, and all of our loved ones will never forget. I mean, how many people who are famous on TikTok get invited to Bedlam? It’s insane. This is something that will never happen to him again.”
Anthony Rayburn, who will graduate from OU in 2020 and has become a big fan of James Droz after following him on TikTok, suggested that James come to Norman to watch the game. Rayburn said that he uses TikTok a lot and is one of James’ biggest fans because he loves sports.
He also said that when he found out that James was from Bartlesville, he decided to invite TikToker to Normal because he likes both OU and OSU.
He also said that he looks forward to James’ TikTok reaction videos every weekend. James’s happy comments are not meant to make fun of or make fun of any team. All of it is just jokes, and his catchphrase is even being used by people who aren’t even his fans.
Ray said that his favorite TikToker is James Droz.
