As TikTok continues to grow in popularity, more and more sounds and other trends are going viral on the short-form video app. Recent trends consist of anything from a dance to the tune of Lizzo’s latest single to the relationship-focused green line test.

TikTok users quickly asked Niqqi to make the ending a usable sound, which has been used over 200k times and has garnered millions of views and likes across all the videos.

‘BarbieBetch0’ uploaded her video in January with the caption “Pulled up to school today and none of you boring a** basic b**ches had on Euphoria makeup or fits. Y’all lame.” At the time of writing, it has been viewed over two million times.

‘Lyci.brad’ used the sound in a more lighthearted way, playing on the stereotype that girlfriends always steal their partner’s hoodies.

“When he tells me I can’t have the new hoodie he just got,” her video reads.
