The #YouHaveTo TikTok memes are marked by creators sharing their controversial opinions using the megaphone voice effect while speaking over heavenly-sounding harp music. The trend began growing in popularity on Sept. 9.

The trend appears to be modeled after a TikTok that was part of May 2020’s #MainCharacter trend, which featured creator @ashlaward telling listeners to romanticize their lives over @Hannah_harpist’s cover of Odesza’s “A Moment Apart”
