Another TikTok trend has gone viral, this time allowing users to act out real-life situations to the tune of the song from the ’90s with the words ‘Act like You know.’ Here’s everything we know about its origin, as well as how creators are using it. 

Over the years we’ve seen musicians of all kinds use TikTok to promote their latest song. A few of the biggest examples are GAYLE with ABCDEFU, Olivia Rodrigo with Drivers License, and Lil Nas X who created the YeeHaw challenge trend for his hit single “Old Town Road.”

Occasionally, however, TikTok trends go viral thanks to older song releases.

This is the case for the latest song-related trend ‘Act like you know,’ which uses the main words from LaShun Pace’s 1996 hit song of the same name.

The ‘Act like you know’ TikTok trend has taken over TikTok recently, allowing creators all over the world to take a jab at real-world scenarios where ‘wilful ignorance’ comes into play.

Video topics range from figuring out who’s driving the car on a road trip to making sure the user gets their sweet rolls at Texas Roadhouse.

TikToker ‘marrlisia’ joined the trend to joke about how her mom always pays for her when they go out together.
