TikTok trend has users sending ‘risky’ texts — but they’re just song lyrics

TikTok has reached peak absurdity, but it’s still 2020 and we expect nothing less.

People are sending each other scandalizing — OK, mostly just confusing — direct messages to flirt with strangers and loved ones with the latest “ruin our friendship” meme. 

TikTokers like @faithbowersx have been sending someone lyrics from the song “Jenny” by Studio Killers, swapping the name “Jenny” for the person of their choosing. The bizarre texts of course result in funny responses from the recipient. 

The messages always start the same, following the lyrics of the song. Users wait for the recipient’s response but hold steady to the format of the trend. Here’s how it goes, line-by-line:

  • [Person’s name], darlin’, you’re my best friend
  • But there’s a few things that you don’t know of
  • Why I borrow your lipstick so often
  • I’m using your shirt as a pillow case
  • I wanna ruin our friendship
  • We should be lovers instead
  • I don’t know how to say this
  • Cause you’re really my dearest friend.

Of course, when @faithbowersx did this to a random boy on the internet, she was nothing short of ecstatic that he was interested in her.

“Please tell me you guys are getting matching bracelets,” a user said.

“Girl, he’s the one,” one person wrote.

“Girl, you just found your soulmate,” another commented

However, when another user, @isabellaatchue tried it on her boyfriend, Aaron, the results were a bit different. Aaron asked, “Why are you sending these weird sentences?” and simply, “Nudes?” 

“Aaron is a simple man,” one user commented

“Aaron is just on a different level,” another said

“Aaron is unbothered,” someone added.
