TikTok once again resurrected a song from relative obscurity and turned into a trend about the randomness of life.
As much as you want to plan for your days, weeks, months, and even years ahead, the matter of the fact is, you can’t 100% predict how your life will go. You may think that things are going a certain way, then all of a sudden life takes an unexpected turn. Life isn’t set in stone and pre-determined as much as others would believe. And this trend that has been making its rounds over TikTok, capturing just how crazy and off-beat life can get.
TikTok is known for turning seemingly obscure or random songs into viral moments. And that was on full display when the song Trip Lang by Shehyee and Sam Pinto started going viral on the video sharing app. Released in 2013, the song is about living in the moment and enjoying your life the best you can. Don’t be too stuck up and just go with the flow. Whether its message, fun sound, its earworm of a chorus, or a mix of all the reasons, it inevitable became a TikTok favorite beginning in early March.
As of this writing, Trip Lang has been used in over 460,000 videos, and that’s just the official version. True to the song’s message, many users used the song to soundtrack their moments in their lives when life decided to give them a plot twist. Here are just some of our favorite videos we came across and see how life is filled with those unexpected, and admittedly fun and memorable moments.
