The Brief: TikTokers are sticking their tongue out of their mouths and wiggling it at the camera as part of a hilarious (and weird) trend. Typically these videos are filmed up-close and from a downwards angle.
TikTokers are sticking out their tongues and wiggling it at their cameras as part of a new trend. Typically, the camera is angled downward, capturing part of the creator’s eye and tongue as it pokes out of their mouth. This trend is performed to sounds of a cat meowing and purring while a piano plays in the background. The trend began growing in popularity around Nov. 18.
The name of the sound is also linked to creator @Sophishrimp, who normally uses the sound in her cooking videos.
decided that i needed to get a little ambitious with dinner tonight so we got peas and homemade mashed potato’s and gravy #fyp
A comment found under many TikToks using the sound is “Türkëë 😔 mrêôw 🤬 æh 😭 mœw 🥳 RÆH-” which is meant to represent the audio written phonetically.
It is unclear who first started the tongue wiggle trend, but it is becoming very popular on the app.
