The Brief: Creators are poking fun at unwanted advances as part of the "You Want Me" trend on TikTok.


TikTokers are re-enacting moments and scenarios in which they feel another individual or even a thing made unwanted advances towards them. The jokes are punctuated by the creators lip-syncing the words “You want me” from Dua Lipa’s “Levitating.” Rather than finish the line with “I want you, baby,” the creator cringes. The trend is meant to be funny.

The trend has been growing in popularity on the app since mid-April. There are over 139,000 videos linked to the audio on TikTok.
