The Brief: "Look at him tremble" stumble then strut videos are trending on TikTok after creator @Witney8 pretended to fall and then walk a catwalk to audio from anime Danganronpa and "Nursery" by Bbno$.
Teens are pretending to fall down in the street and in hallways, before regaining their balance and strutting their stuff on an imaginary catwalk. The trend was started by popular TikToker Witney Ramabulana (@Witney8). These videos became increasingly popular in mid-May.
These videos are set to an audio clip from Danganronpa where two characters debate anime, saying, “Anime is an important part of our culture” and “Look at him tremble he’s gonna burst a blood vessel cause I dissed his waifu!” That audio clip is then mixed into the song “Nursery” by Bbno$ and tracked under the audio Nursery- Jayne.
