TikTok trend explained: 'You don't know me'

·2-min read

If there is one thing TikTok users have a firm grasp of it's how to take something inconsequential and turn it into a trending topic.

The latest trend involves just that — after one keen observer noticed a moment from a TV series called Good Luck Have Fun, which streams on Brat TV.

One scene where a character reveals a major "secret" has taken the online world by storm after TikTokers found it partially amusing, used the audio to make their own reenactments and propelled it to the top of the TikTok trends.

What is the actual trend?

The trend involves users admitting their own (most of the time) ridiculous "secrets" — whether that's admitting to being a "horse girl", watching Netflix with the subtitles on or believing in star signs — but miming along to the dialogue from the scene.

The scene the audio is taken from is a dramatic work of art in itself.

"There's so much you don't know about me," the girl, Jane, says. 

"Like what?" her male companion Tyler scoffs. "Are you like an axe murderer or something?"

'Worse," she replies dramatically. "I'm a gamer."

In the videos, users will replace "gamer" with their own admission.

Where does the trend come from?

The audio is taken from the 2021 web series, Good Luck Have Fun, which streams on YouTube

According to IMBD, the show is about online gamer Jane who has her eye on the prize and crushing her rival Mia once and for all. However, that all changes when she meets the boy next door.

Biggest videos in the trend so far

The trend started picking up speed towards the end of August, with over 68,000 videos tagged to the audio clip on TikTok so far.

The most popular videos have upwards of a million likes on the platform.

Why is it so popular on TikTok?

It's the opportunity to be ridiculous AND get a deep dark secret off your chest — what's not to love?
