If you’ve never seen an apartment with an “indoor balcony,” consider yourself lucky.
The unsettling video is part of a longstanding trend on the app. In the past, TikTokers have discovered “secret rooms” on their roofs, “hidden staircases” leading into walled-off basements and bizarre loudspeakers in their neighborhoods.
Rachel’s clip shows the apartment complex where she’s currently staying. As her video shows, the building is full of indoor balconies that hang over the windowless main hall.
“Just so weird,” she captioned her post.
The clip immediately went viral, drawing more than 1.4 million views in just two days. TikTokers seemed mainly spooked out by the building, which they called “terrifying” and compared to a prison.
“Saddest apartment ever!” another added.
In fact, TikTok had so many questions that Rachel posted a series of follow-up videos. In one, she gives a tour of the apartment’s interior, which has several rooms with no windows.
Thankfully, Rachel also added in the clip that the apartment isn’t hers — she’s just staying in it for a few weeks until she and a friend move into a new place together. In the meantime, at least her room has a window.
