TikTokers are pretending to trip and fall as part of the Ain’t No Simpin TikTok challenge. The gag is creators never hit the ground. They all appear to be levitating. This TikTok challenge began growing in popularity in early February. The trend is performed to a clip of Tyler, The Creator saying “Oh no, I hope I don’t fall” into Blueface’s “Disrespectful.” There are over 349,000 videos linked to the audio.

Lyrics:

Can’t no ho tell me sh*t
‘Cause b*tch, I’m the sh*t
On my mom and my sis’, had to kick my own blood out
They must have forgot I was a Crip (Scoop)

The trend appears to trace back to @Donnycanes who shared a video of him falling without ever hitting the floor on Jan. 30. The comments were flooded with questions about how he did it. The video garnered over 993,000 views and 133,000 likes.
