The Brief: TikToker's are testing their finger coordination by taping their left, index finger and thumb to a different beat than their right, index finger and thumb to the song Junko (Despair) by Josiane Lessard.


The trend, touted as a trick only piano players can master, is marked by TikTokers tapping their index fingers against their thumbs. The left and right fingers are tapping to two different rhythms featured in the track Junko (Despair) by Josiane Lessard.

In December 2019, the audio was used for an anime pose challenge. TikToker’s imitated Danganronpa’s Junko’s poses which consisted of very fast crossing arm motions.


I remember when I first saw this trend I literally thought I could never learn how to do poses πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€
