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.
