A goofy TikTok sound making the rounds is an unearthed clip from the start of a 1986 anti-drug album aimed at kids. The sound starts with a long, silly, and upbeat musical intro, and then a raspy deep voice comes in with “Using crack and cocaine / to get high.”
The “That is a Scarecrow” meme trend is wildly popular on TikTok because it speaks to a common behavior we see in ourselves and others: denial.
Podcaster Justin McElroy @hoopsmcelroy achieved TikTok notoriety when he uploaded a sample sound from a wonderfully weird 2007 Starburst commercial. He encouraged everyone to “make great art with this sound,” and boy did they ever. Not only did people use soundbite as it was uploaded, but they’ve remixed it a plethora of ways.
The “immediately no” TikTok sound is one of those sounds that gets right to the core of boundary setting. It’s short, palpable, and universally relatable. Everyone can think of something they want to firmly reject, but politely so. When you go to the original sound, however, you don’t find the true source of the voice.
The TikTok trend “Mama Said it was Okay” uses a bit from Danish pop band Lukas Graham’s 2015 song “Mama Said’ as a way to show the celebrities/fictional characters who influence and/or align with the TikToker’s style, behavior, and/or viewpoints.

A song made up of pure gibberish is one of TikTok’s more popular trends/sounds. The appeal of Dville Santa’s “Laboratory/Like A Meebo” is that it’s used to perfectly capture that feeling of trying to explain your point of view, or something that you’re passionate about to someone who doesn’t understand, doesn’t care, fully agrees with you anyway so it doesn’t matter or maybe even knows more than you and can see through the bs you’re spilling. Whether the nonsense comes from the talker, the listener, or a little bit of both, it’s a very human experience of feeling like you’re not being heard, or maybe that even you don’t fully understand the topic you’re rambling about.
So, a TikTok with over 8 million views is blowing people’s minds over Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists. It shows someone scooping up what looks like dry rotini pasta noodles and frying them until they enlarge and become the light and crispy dessert treat that’s a staple on Taco Bell’s menu. Can you make Cinnamon Twists by deep-frying Italian pasta at home?
One of the most popular TikTok songs right now is a snippet from the 2015 Drake song “Know Yourself.” In the snippet the line “I was running through the six with my woes” repeats and is followed by “You know how that sh!t go.” What does this line mean and why is it viral?
There is a popular TikTok account that until very recently went by the name “Daniel Dobrik” and features a guy who looks startingly like the notorious YouTube celeb who’s currently being cancelled over some very serious allegations and critiques about the entire culture surrounding his content.
