It uses a viral meme of ‘Stranger Things’ star Finn Wolfhard clicking his fingers to show a transformation; in this case the change of the council’s logo from ‘Doncaster Council’ to ‘City of Doncaster Council’.

The text above reads: Doncaster Council on 1st January 2023.

The change in name and logo reflects that Doncaster was awarded city status last year.

In a full council meeting in November, councillors voted to adopt the title ‘City of Doncaster’ rather than ‘Doncaster City’.

Many TikTok users laughed along with comments such as “Doncaster ate!”, “Slay I guess” and “New year new me!”

It also created some turf wars, with users writing “Donny thinks it’s hard now” and “Barnsley’s better.”
