TikTokers vent their frustrations in overdramatic ‘gunshot’ trend

TikTok users have taken a serious trend and turned it into a meme to vent their frustrations. The gunshot TikTok trend has people sharing the minor problems they’ve had to overcome in the most dramatic way. 

Here’s where the sound came from:

The origins of the meme’s sound come from a video by @gysleenee, where she “finger dances” to the sound of gunshots. 

There are currently over 86,000 videos associated with the sound on TikTok.

The serious version of the gunshot trend

The user @joeycassanova revealed everything he’s allegedly overcome over the course of his life, from surviving domestic violence, three heart attacks, the death of his parents and child abuse. 

“If you only knew what I’ve been through. Somehow I’m still here,” he said

How the gunshot TikTok trend became lighthearted

@funkyfitz‘s approach was more melodramatic than tragic.

“You don’t know what I’ve been through,” she said. “Voltron phase in middle school. Can’t make eye contact. Four hours of Genshin every day. Can’t drive. Poop jokes.” 

Then @rosiedavis123 and her friends revealed their so-called “struggles.” 

“You know our names not our stories,” the caption read. “Liked a ginger. Cankles. Accidentally spent $150 on a two-minute Uber. Has an iPhone 7. Business major at ASU. Cut from the high school volleyball team.” 

Meanwhile, @madozilla used it to poke fun of herself.

“You do not know what I have been through,” @madozilla said. “Boobs are social distancing. Gua sha won’t get rid of my double chin. Sausage fingers. DoorDash locked my account.”
