The “Oh No” trend on TikTok sees creators sharing extreme fails or funny accidents set to the song “Oh No” by Capone. Creators typically freeze and zoom in on the fail as occurs, emphasizing the moment it happens and further adding to the amusing nature of the video. These videos began rising in popularity in late October and early November.

According to Know Your Meme, the trend began prior to Sept. 7 on the gaming side of TikTok. Creator @Reytehozol’s video featured a Fortnite dashboard set to “Oh No.” The video froze and zeroed in on a target as the player was about to land a perfect sniper shot.
