The “Nobody” TikTok trend proves just how quickly romance can die.
People are sampling the chorus of, indie darling, Mitski’s “Nobody” to quite literally run away from their relationship feelings and problems. The meme perfectly captures the moment you get hit with a case of the icks and have to get out of dodge.
What is the ‘Nobody’ TikTok trend?
In the “Nobody” trend, TikTokers reveal their problems (and icks) in captions juxtaposed against footage of them running to “Nobody” by Mitski. Mitski sings the word “nobody” five times in the song’s chorus, increasing the intensity and emphasis of the word each time. You’ll also notice the content creators picking up their paces in time with the song.
“When you realize you have to hang out with a boy alone in order to get a boyfriend,” influencer Michelle Wozniak said as she sprinted down a dark, empty street as if someone were chasing her.
What are icks?
Icks can be best described as unexpected feelings of repulsion toward a romantic partner. They can usually be triggered by general pet peeves or intimacy issues. Revealing relationship icks became a popular trend on TikTok in 2020.
Embattled TikToker Sienna Mae Gomez was the first to post the train
Body positive influencer Sienna Mae Gomez was the first to use Mitski’s song as a soundtrack to running on May 29. Gomez was recently accused of sexually assaulting a longtime friend and Hype House member Jack Wright.
Some examples of the ‘Nobody’ TikTok trend
“When they’re emotionally available and actually like you back,” @m4rvj said, dropping his backpack on the ground and running for his life.
“When you realize that relationships require being vulnerable,” @aryiaofficial captioned his video. He hightailed it out of his home.
‘When one of my guy friends says, ‘I have to tell you something,'” @emma_0009 joked. Then she ran through her home and fell on her face for comedic effect.
“Suddenly, I’m a track star,” someone commented.
