The Brief: TikTok duet trolls create content on the app to poke fun at other creators' videos, usually in a duet (side-by-side) format.


A TikTok duet troll is an individual who creates content to badger, taunt, or harmlessly poke fun at another individual’s videos using the “duet” feature.

The “duet” feature allows an individual to create a side-by-side video. It is often used for reactions, explainers, and actual singing duets.

“Duet Troll” is a flair on Reddit under the subreddit TikTok Cringe. It is also a hashtag on TikTok, with more than 797,000 views.

TikToker @Themichaelspencer is categorized as a TikTok duet troll on Reddit for imitating creator @Brandonntyler’s videos over and over again.

There are also TikTok duets where people interact directly with a video, acting as if they are in dialogue with or in the same room as the video’s original creator. This subsequently adds more context.
