"Just Did A Bad Thing" TikTok videos are a classic meme in which someone confesses to a comical wrongdoing.
The clip in the videos goes:
Just did a bad thing
I regret the thing I did
And you’re wondering what it is
Tell you what I did
I just did a bad thing
Often, the person featured in the videos does not reveal the “bad thing” that they’ve done until the very end. Common themes in this video are bad haircuts, regrettable tattoos, illicit piercings, and other shenanigans. People’s faces usually show a mixture of guilt and glee about what they’ve done.
Many of these “Just Did A Bad thing” videos capture the experience doing something that you regret or are unsure of. As TikTok is popular among teenagers, these videos somewhat poignantly portray the awkward aftermath for teenagers of having just done something taboo, against the rules, reckless, and/or stupid.
