Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Mimi Faust set social media on fire with the release of a sex tape starring her boyfriend Nikko earlier this week.

Everyone from Joseline Hernandez to Home Depot workers have reacted to the tape. We all know Joseline and Mimi were never the best of friends. But why is Home Depot involved?

Well, it seems the most talked about scene from the sex tape involved MiMi, Nikko, and a shower rod. Ever since, shower rods have been flying off the shelves. Shower rod scene reenactments, memes, Vines, and even a Twitter page named @MiMiShowerRod have forced us to add this household object to the list of random things you’ll never look at the same way again.

Check out the entire list below.

1. Surfboard / Bath tub

This one is self-explanatory. Surfboardt.

“Then I fill the tub up halfway, then ride it with my surfboard. Surfboard, surfboard.” – Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”)

2. Cake

Rihanna gave an entirely new meaning to dessert with this one. Yuck at the thought of this popping in your head at your parent’s birthday party.

“It’s not even my birthday. But he wanna lick the icing off. I know you want it in the worst way. Can’t wait to blow my candles out. He want that cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, cake.” – Rihanna (“Birthday Cake”)


Here’s R. Kelly incorporating Bey and Rih’s ideas together: cakes in the tub before you surfboard.

Leave it to R. Kelly to creep us out even further.

3. Chapstick

Katy Perry first came into our lives boasting about her lesbi-honest escapades and the lippy that made it that much more memorable. Now we get turned on by our lip balm. Great.

“I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her cherry ChapStick.” – Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”)

4. Rice Cakes

Here’s RiRi again. This time she gave a new meaning (well, nickname) to a low-fat snack you may find in your cupboard.

(She also may have been throwing shots at Chris Brown’s Asian ex Karrueche.)

“Sweeter than a rice cake, cake worth sipping. Kill it, tip it. Cake, fill it.”


5. Bicycles

For the Caribbean fans, Jamaican artist Vybz Kartel taught us the importance of putting our biking skills to good use.

“Ride pon di cocky like a bicycle” – Vybz Kartel (“Bicycle”)

“Look, ma! No hands!”

6. Boats

Who knew boats themselves were so sexy? Yes, a man with one is pretty sweet, but the boat itself has the real motion of the ocean.

“Rock the boat. Work the middle. Change positions. Stroke it for me.” – Aaliyah (“Rock The Boat”)

7. Laffy Taffy Candies

Remember when ATL rap group D4L turned a candy into a dance and then you grew up and realized they weren’t really talking about candy? “Laffy Taffy” even went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Girl, shake that Laffy Taffy!”

8. Your entire kitchen

R. Kelly sang, “Sex in the kitchen, over by the stove. Put you on the counter, by the buttered rolls. Hands on the table, on your tippy toes. We’ll be making love like the restaurant was closed.”

Doesn’t that just sound appetizing?

9. Closets

And Kelz of course made you fear the possibility of accidentally getting locked in your closet and a little person popping out of nowhere.

Moral of the story? R. Kelly is clearly a repeat offender.
