The Brief: The "What's Gibby Thinking About?" TikTok trend sees creators recreating the iCarly segment "What's Gibby Thinking About?" with funny memes and bizarre videos.
“What’s Gibby Thinking About?” was part of a mini-series based on a sketch from iCarly. The series was known for opening with a jingle that followed with a bizarre video. TikTokers are now creating their own version of the iCarly segment by using the audio of the jingle along with a close-up shot of their faces, before the music cuts to George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” and a random video or funny meme. The audio is linked to over 251,000 videos. The trend is on TikTok’s “Discover” page under the associated hashtag #ThinkingAbout which has over 1.2 billion views.
One of the most popular videos in the trend is @z25richter’s video that questioned whether soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish. The video received over 430,000 likes and 1.9 million views.
Another popular take comes from @the.jumpinghamster. The daredevil pet apparently dreams about his previous death-defying stunts. The TikTok garnered over 375,000 likes and 1.4 million views.
Celebs hopped on the trend, too. Wiz Khalifa’s video about crispy hash browns garnered over 1.2 million likes and 4.5 million views within one day.
