TikTok expert Alessandro Bogliari says Charli “became this image of the perfect TikTok girl dancing”, and that part of the reason she became so popular was that no one could understand it.

“It was trending because everyone was commenting, ‘I don’t understand the hype,’” Bogliari said. “Then they went from [watching] her videos and to then making fun of themselves saying ‘now I get it.’”
