The Brief: Taylor Swift's song "You Need To Calm Down" has inspired a TikTok meme about being too loud.
The concept behind the meme is simple. It uses the following lines to convey a situation in which someone is being too loud and disruptive:
“So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
You need to calm down, you’re being too loud”
TikTokers label objects and characters in the scenes of these sketches to illustrate someone who is being loud saying “oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh” and then being chastised by someone who says “you need to calm down, you’re being too loud.” This format follows those of many other TikTok videos in its classic lip-synching style.
On TikTok the hashtag #CalmDown has been viewed over 250 million times and “You Need To Calm Down” has been featured in over 250,000 videos.
Just choir things…
