The Brief: The "knock on fake glass" TikTok trend consists of creators performing a sequence of fist pounds on imaginary glass.
TikTokers are pretending to knock on fake glass as part of a new trend. Typically, creators perform a sequence of fist/palm pounds against a glass window, before revealing the window is actually open and there isn’t any glass. Another form of this trend sees creators simply pounding their fists against the air, nowhere near a window. The trend became popular in early February.
These videos are performed to “Chapter 1’s Main Theme (Extended)” from the Corpse Party: Blood Covered video game soundtrack along with a voice saying, “That’s some bullsh*t.”
Memes have also emerged in which creators pound their fist to show their frustration with a situation described in their on-screen text.
Phone storage jokes:
Had to delete Spotify to make this one 😔
There’s also an ongoing challenge about whether the trend begins with a fist or a flat palm.
