Every now and then a TikTok sound comes along that perfectly encapsulates what you're trying to say.

A new sound trending on the app is being used by TikTokers who are fed up with being told certain things by people around them, letting them know that they in no way care for their opinion.

What is the actual trend?

As far as popular TikTok sounds go, it's pretty straightforward.

The sounds of a baseball game and a crowd cheering can be heard, before you hear a ball being thrown and it colliding with a bat as it gets being hit.

An announcer's voice then says: "Nobody asked" as the crowd continues to cheer.

Users have taken the video to list things people do that in no way warrants their opinion, telling them "nobody asked" nor cares for it.

These include unsolicited opinions on raising kids, weight, food choices, and fashion.

In the videos, users mime out the lead-up to hitting a baseball as the text flashes on the screen. Often they would also mime out what the announcer is saying as well.

Where does the trend come from?

The sound was made by Memetastic, a YouTuber and Tiktoker who makes and uploads memes and sounds on the platform.

It was originally posted in late September, along with the caption: "Send this to someone who did something nobody asked for."

Biggest videos in the trend

The original video has over 4.5 million views, with other popular ones reaching upwards of 450,000.

There are almost 6,000 videos using the sound so far, but with the sound just over a week old, there's still plenty more to come.

Why is it so popular on TikTok?

This trend combines a fun sound with the opportunity to tell people to mind their own business and stay out of your affairs - what could be better?
