TikTokers are lip-syncing to lines from the The Grinch as part of the “You’re The The The, The Grinch” trend. These memes are marked by creators playfully joking about the times they’ve surprised others by revealing their differences or “unflattering” characteristics that deviate from society’s conventional standards of beauty.

Some creators also poked fun at themselves and others by sharing funny and/or unflattering photos of themselves, other creators, and celeb crushes. These videos are performed to audio from How The Grinch Stole Christmas. It is when Cindy Lou Who first meets the green-haired villain. These videos began growing in popularity on the app around in late-November. There are over 160,000 videos linked to the audio.

Popular TikTok star Loren Gray hopped on the trend. Her meme was about a guy realizing she is way taller than he thought. Her video received over 2.2 million likes and 10.9 million views.
