TikTok seemed to be something that was purely reserved for kids and teens until the COVID outbreak happened. Over the space of a couple of months, suddenly every man and his dog was on TikTok, and we found ourselves begrudgingly making an account and telling people that we were only using the platform ironically.
There’s no denying the fact that TikTok is addictive, and it’s produced some absolutely gold-standard videos since it’s gained popularity. Here are 50 of the best and worst TikTok videos for you to cringe at, laugh about and smile at- that will certainly keep you entertained.
1. Deaf dog thinks she’s barking
We’ve got all the feels watching the video of this sweet little dog who thinks she’s barking. Being deaf, she’s seen other dogs do something similar and just wants to be like them. She seems so proud of herself!
2. Mom passed the vibe check!
What could boost your mood more than watching someone’s mom vibing to an 80s Japanese song? We have no idea what they’re singing, but the mom is clearly being taken back to her childhood days. Someone translate the lyrics for us!
3. Welcome to cat TikTok.
“Okay so you take your hoodie, put it on backwards, and then put your cat in there,” the man in the video explains. Sounds simple, right? Only when we tried it with our cat, we almost got our hand bitten off.
4. Vegan puppies
We can’t lie, this video almost had us fooled until the joke was revealed at the end. All we could think was “is this honestly going to fill a dog up? Spoiler alert: the rabbit food was actually for… rabbits.
5. Back in the before-fore times
Back in March, we really had no idea just what was going to be in store for us. A paid week off work? Sign us up! Little did we know what was about to come…
6. It’s time to buy my cat a keyboard
Who knew that cats had so many hidden talents up their sleeves? Not only can this cat sing, but he’s also a top producer as well. Move over, Calvin Harris.
7. The video gives me life
This is like the video that you needed to see- but you didn’t know that you needed to see it (welcome to TikTok). What could be more fun than rating wild cats as they eat? We actually love the sassy ones who growl, and in our opinion, they should get top marks for sure.
8. Out of touch rich people
Our new favorite celebrity interview moment has to be this one. Just because you’re rich and famous, doesn’t mean that you can’t appreciate a good pair of comfy socks and a nice tasting coffee. This is a man after our hearts.
9. Legendary homestay in Italy!
Imagine having a host father like this guy- you’d never want to come home! Moving abroad by yourself must be pretty daunting, but we reckon this guy would soon help you to get over your homesickness. Sign us up!
10. A Problem
Big boob problems are a pretty niche topic that only those who are a D cup and over can understand. Want to be able to zip up your jacket if you’re an E cup? Don’t even bother. And as an added bonus, those with smaller assets will be all too keen to rub it in your face.
11. Next level face filter
We’re not going to lie, we just spent much longer than we should have done messing around with this cool filter. If you’re wondering, it’s one of the filters on Snapchat. Who wouldn’t want to see what they look like as a Disney Princess or Prince?
12. Man took a picture of himself everyday for 2020
This is pretty much what all of these videos look like to be honest. We usually get halfway through a ‘I took a picture of myself for ‘x’ amount of days’ video before realizing that we never actually cared in the first place. Savage, but true.
13. Santa brings presents for *EVERY* good boy and girl in the world
What could be better than watching a video of a dog open a Christmas present? This is the kind of wholesome content that we didn’t know we needed. Look how much he loves his new bed!
14. LA ran out of ICU beds and there is a national test shortage but James Charles and his influencer friends test themselves almost every week so they can make YouTube and TikTok videos?
We’re totally against jumping on the bandwagon of hating a famous person just because everyone else does (whatever happened to ‘be kind?’) But at the same time, James Charles is really out there making the content that nobody asked to see. We love you, James, but maybe it’s time to take a step back for the time being.
15. WAP but by the Killers
If you ever wondered what Cardi B’s WAP would sound like in the style of The Killers, then here you go. And you know what, we’re actually digging it a lot more than we thought we would. This guy has got talent!
16. I was not expecting this whatsoever
What could be more unexpected than a bearded man singing along to a graceful tune? He looks like the kind of guy who would listen to some heavy metal- but as we’re well aware, stereotypes can often get the better of us. He’s actually pretty good!
17. This is 100% how it felt the first time
What could be better than a dramatic rendition of one of our most painful moments from childhood? Let’s be honest, this was around the time when we suddenly learnt that we can’t always trust our parents. The PAIN.
18. Be the change you want to see
This guy was bullied for being gay and different, and he spent lunch times eating alone. Now he’s a kindergarten teacher, and is on a mission to make sure that none of his students will ever feel alone. We need more teachers like him.
19. Time to buy my dog a keyboard too?
The talented pets are back- and this time, it’s the dog’s turn. We don’t know if it’s the effect that lockdown’s having on us, but we would actually dance to this in a club. Maybe we’re just so desperate to get back to the club…
20. I’ve been exposed
Everyone who’s ever been to a party alone and has a tendency to be somewhat socially awkward can understand this video. There’s nothing worse than being in a social situation where it seems like everybody is friends and you don’t know anyone. Time to scroll through the same three apps, or maybe even fake a phone call.
21. Birthday cake head game
He trained his neck just for this moment- but we really want to see how it ended. Did his friends give up in the end, or did he let the inevitable happen and end up with a face full of cake? We need answers.
22. You. Are. Baby.
Is this actually how it feels to be an Asian person on TikTok? If so, we feel sorry for them, as that must be incredibly creepy. Petition to get the creeps removed from the internet!
23. Dancing in September
There’s no doubt about it- this bird has got moves. In our opinion, parrots and budgies are totally underrated pets. Could a cat or dog do this? Absolutely not.
24. But how?!
This guy is super smart, but we’d hedge a guess and say that he has way too much time on his hands. He really took the time to research all the different pieces of furniture in this guy’s room, and he went to so much effort that we wish he knew whether his guess was right. Someone let us know!
25. When the music hits different in a fancy restaurant bathroom
Even just from reading the title we knew that this video was going to be for us. There’s something about going into an empty bathroom at a fancy restaurant when the music is playing loud, which really makes you feel alive. If you say you don’t dance when you think you’re alone, then you’re lying.
26. The best gift idea
We couldn’t think of a better way to use your photoshop skills than by doing what this guy did. We wish he’d have included his dad’s reaction in this video! We bet he loves the picture a whole lot more now.
27. The HeCk arE you doing gaRret?!?
This kid has got a very valid point. He’s in what appears to be the middle of a paintballing match, and he decided that now was a good time to make a TikTok video? Granted, his voice is good, but this isn’t the time, Garret!
28. I’m crying
TokTok is great for silly little videos that shouldn’t make you laugh as much as they do. Did we learn anything from this video? Absolutely not. In fact, we might have even lost a few braincells. But it was worth it for the laughs.
29. Enough is enough
At the beginning of the video, we thought ‘are they going to get laser eye surgery?’ and mentally started preparing ourselves for some icky surgery videos. But it turns out, that like the rest of us in 2020, this person has simply seen enough. We’re with you on that one, pal.
30. Thoroughly enjoyable
Has this song been over-quoted? Absolutely. But admittedly, this video still made us chuckle.
If 2020 hadn’t have happened, none of us would have any idea why this video is so funny and relatable. The great thing about working from home is that we can chill out in our sweats all day- until someone has to go and ruin it by turning on their camera on Zoom. Only crazy people are prepared for an unexpected video call.
32. Wish Jim Carrey
Everyone knows that the item that you order off Wish isn’t usually what ends up arriving. This guy is like Jim Carrey, except he’s not. Kind of like a Wish version of Jim Carrey.
33. Last Christmas…
Ahh it’s one of those “say weird things in front of people and see what their reactions will be” kind of videos. Only this one is extra great, because it features this guy’s grandma. Although we love seeing the reaction of other people, we love her reaction the best.
34. When the NPC in your Game Glitches Out
“A hamburger, okay… What would you like?” This is the cutest little café you could ever possibly visit, but if you’re expecting to actually get some food at any point, then you can think again. This little girl has quite the short term memory.
35. Wow never knew that
We genuinely thought that this girl knew her stuff about anatomy- but like every TikTok video, we should have known not to be fooled. What do men have in place of their uterus is actually a great question, but if you’re expecting a serious question, then think again. Admittedly, we did laugh though.
36. Daughter records herself singing her mom’s favorite songs as a Christmas gift.
We’d love to be half as good of a singer as the girl in this video, and her mom’s reaction is priceless. Her daughter so rarely sings in front of her that she didn’t even recognize her voice at first! This gave us all the feels.
37. Watch the full video
Us girls do get on at guys for their problem-solving approach to all of our problems- but this guy isn’t going to go down without a fight. He actually does make a great point. Let’s just agree that there are times when empathy is needed, and other times when problem-solving is needed.
38. The new chucky movie looks different here
Children are totally cute until they go into full horror-movie-child mode. We were not expecting this little girl to pull such a creepy expression! That eye roll though…
39. This trend makes my heart smile
It’s the Japanese song trend again, and while we’re still totally clueless as to the song we’re listening to, we can’t deny that it doesn’t make us smile to watch these moms grooving out to the music. It must have been a really popular song back in the day!
40. I didn’t know I needed this.
We’re not the biggest punk fans out there, but listening to this punk version of Africa takes us right back to our teenage years. How do people know how to literally change the genre of the song into another one, and pull it off so flawlessly? It’s like TikTok was made for them.
41. I can’t tell the difference
They took an emotional moment and tuned it into an absolute train-wreck, but we’d give them 10/10 for their efforts. Our favorite props have to be the bald cap, the sausage used as a steering wheel and the various vegetables in place of cars. Who had too much time on their hands during lockdown? These guys.
42. A woman tries to scam an Etsy vendor.
2020 has been the year of supporting small businesses, but there’s always going to be one or two bad eggs who don’t give a damn about helping others. Did she really include a Hogwarts logo in her ‘lawsuit’ though? What is wrong with some people?
43. We’re all guilty of doing this.
Does anyone know what game this guy is referring to? We feel like we’ve entered the gamers side of TikTok and this is where our inexperience begins to show. We’re sure there’s some of you out there who can relate to this.
44. Merry Crisis
What could be a better Christmas present than a mugshot from yours truly? These must be some cool parents to laugh about this! We’re not sure that the reaction would go down so well with our own parents.
45. Piano man
Here’s another musical dog for you, and this little guy is giving it his all. We’ll never understand why an animal spends so long trying to press down the cushions in their bed, but it’s one of the things we love the most about them.
46. That’s hot
Has a guy wearing yoga pants just convinced us that we absolutely need some right now? Yes he has. We think this guy should do more reviews, because we can imagine loads of people were instantly sold after watching this video!
47. My Christmas sleep paralysis demon
When you order from Wish, you might as well completely discard the picture on the website, and just expect the unexpected. This man ordered a cute little snowman, but what he got was more like a snow demon. He’s always watching you…
48. My Heart
Every cat lover will understand the girl in this video’s love for her obese cat, Pebble. Our cats really can do no wrong in our eyes. Killed a man? He probably just provoked them.
49. Why is no one talking about this?
Scientific advances have allowed us to explore the world in ways that weren’t even possible 100 or so years ago. But this has to be one of the coolest things to have been discovered so far. You can’t miss out on watching this video.
50. Come Out Ye Black’n’Tans
As an English woman, we didn’t quite know whether we should have been vibing to this song- but we did anyway. Are Irish drinking songs really all like this? We’re intrigued.
