TikTokers are poking fun at the character updates that typically occur at the end of movies as part of the “Hopeful For Today” TikTok trend. These videos are marked by creators freezing while in mid-motion and adding on-screen text to update the viewer on their life after the video. These videos are meant to be funny as TikTokers are sharing comical/unexpected updates performed to the optimistic and inspiring tune “Hope” by Twista featuring Faith Evans. There are over 210,000 videos linked to the audio on the app.
