Modern World is all about social media. Texting and emoji have replaced verbal communication. The ability of a person to convert his thoughts into a few abbreviations and pictures is something extraordinary. Online platforms have now become a space for the evolution of languages more than ever.
TikTok always had come up with its list of new words like “Heather”, “Simp” and “FYP”. What’s trending now on the platform is “Glizzy”. This term makes someone stop digging deeper because of the R-rated possibilities it can have. But it turns out that this is nothing more than a humble word.
Sometimes, essential slang can take a different meaning. This is what happened with the now trending Tiktok term “Glizzy”.Many users are unaware of the exact meaning. Some people take it to believe that it has got a negative sense.

So what exactly does the term mean? The term glizzy is slightly confusing when you search for the word on Tiktok. The users find a lot of unrelated videos. But if you carefully observe, then you get what exactly it means. The term glizzy is nothing but hotdogs, just like the edible one. To be exact, it includes the hotdog along with the grilling staple.
How did the term originate?
The term supposedly originated in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia or short DMV. Glizzy was used as a slang term for a pistol and specifically a Glock. It was also used in Big Pun’s 2000 single “It’s so hard” when he used “Glizzy in the stizzy” in which he meant a Glock in the dashed box in his car.
Now the word has somehow converted into the famous American dish Hot Dog. However, the term glizzy has been used simultaneously for both Glock and Hot Dog in DC for a long time. This is not so prevalent in the neighbourhood, though. A new slang has now been received well by the Gen-Zs. It’s almost everywhere.
But seriously, when did "glizzy" transition from a glock to a hot dog…..AND WHY?!?!?!?!#glizzy

A trending video with hashtag glizzy in TikTok features a man catching a hotdog or the now called “Glizzy” with his mouth as it is thrown from one part of a room to another gaining almost 2 million likes. The video itself became viral on the platform with several Tiktokers attempting to do the same.
Glizzy was even linked to famous politicians. In another trending post, it features the former American President Obama who is caught eating “glizzy”. Then there was another one with Bill Clinton in which he was having a “glizzy” from a store.
Advertisements featuring sausages and Hot Dogs are now being replaced with “glizzy”. Even the recipes for the hotdog sausages are now taking the hashtag glizzy.
