The Latest TikTok Trends in May 2021
@kingvaderv.oSheeeeeshhh x1 #kingvader #theboys w/@doc_egemba @pierrestepzz @ameratron @iminikon @heavenlycontrol♬ Heavenly Sheeeeesh by veryveryvinny – Vinny Marchi
Remember when we talked about the trend of pointing to your arm back in March? Ok so, that move is called “Ice In My Veins” and it now comes with sound effects. TikTokers point to their arms, switch to falsetto, and say “Sheesh”. This has actually moved beyond being just a content trend, as I’ve actually experienced teenagers sheesing in daily conversation.
You can sheesh to anything. A sheesh can be a response to something very cool or exciting, or an ironic response to something sad. And yes, you are expected to sheesh back or join the chorus when someone sheeshes at you.
2. Freeze Frame
@devaughnreeseThe truth about the military 😭 #military #Army #marines #funny #foryou #fypシ♬ Hope (feat. Faith Evans) – Twista
Yet another TikTok Trend that cherishes a good plot twist… Just use the freeze frame to share the harsh reality.
One of the musical TikTok Trends in May 2021:
3. Dua Lipa is behind this May TikTok Trend: Levitating
Dua Lipa’s new hit Levitating made it big on TikTok! As one of the biggest TikTok Trends in May 2021, creators use the “You Want Me, I Want You Baby” part of the song to share the funny things that call out to them.
4. Nya Arigato (ICHI-NI-SAN)
@f1ellySome safety cars just built different😳 #f1 #astonmartinf1 #mercedesamgf1 #f12021 #safetycar #motorsport #cartiktok♬ not my audio the sound is from shingunkun – 𝐣𝐚𝐲
This TikTok Trend is for those that are way more attractive than their counterparts. An average car, followed by a supercar; some bad fruit followed by a spotless strawberry; you when you were in middle school, followed by you now; you get the point. The sound says “Nya Ichi-Ni-San, Nya Arigato” twice, but it’s way more sensual the second time around. That’s where things start to get hot.
5. Show Me The Coolest Thing You Own That Isn’t Expensive
@sethvideoz#stitch with @cleoabram Unicorn Car Transformer! #viral #fyp #transformation♬ SUNNY DAY – Matteo Rossanese
Forget about showcasing in-house movie theaters or giant pool slides. This TikTok trend is for those little things in life that are insanely cool without costing an arm and a leg.
One of the obsessive TikTok Trends in May 2021:
6. Symmetry Check
@arianny.tenorioQué filtro tan cool 🤯😱 #Invertido♬ original sound – Vicky O’Connell
Ever wondered how symmetrical your face was? Now you can find out, thanks to the Symmetry effect on TikTok! The effect mirrors your image rapidly, so you can see how big of a difference that makes.
7. Have You Ever Tried Making a Chicken and Veggie One Pan Meal?
@pbuesq#stitch with @lowcarblove #chickenandveggies #onepan #childfree♬ original sound – Princeton Heights Troglodyte
This question went viral on TikTok, and for all the wrong reasons. Ever wanted to overshare on TikTok but felt there was something holding you back? Or maybe you really wanted a 180-degree turn to your interesting topic. Just stitch the viral video and manifest to your heart’s desire!
8. Take My Credit Card
@spicekingcamyes it’s what I want, and yes I can handle it 🙄 #spiceking #spicekingforever♬ original sound – steppedllama
This May TikTok Trend is for all those things you’d swipe your card for in a heartbeat. It’s pretty much the equivalent of the “Shut Up and Take My Money” meme, and the perfect opportunity share what you really need in life
Bring back the Victorian style with this TikTok Trend in May 2021
9. You Bring The Corsets
@noordabashhidk views were low?♬ Haus of Holbein (Sing-A-Long) – SIX
It’s time to whip out that Victorian corset that’s been lying in your closet all this time! Just sing along as you tighten that corset, and amaze everyone with how big of a difference it makes.
10. At First I Was Like … As A Joke
@julywolf8Why is my hair so wet #peakyblinders #byorderofthepeakyblinders♬ I stole this sound from another tiktok sound
What’s that one thing you only pretended to like ironically, but then really grew fond of? The original sound in the trend claims its “feet”. But it can be anything in this TikTok trend, even TikTok itself!
BONUS TikTok Trend in May 2021: Alternate Day
@ardaturan1003Yes, biology is cool, no it’s not cooler than physics. #fyp #foryou♬ Alternate Day (from “Terraria”) – Re-Logic
Ever wanted to be a video game NPC from the 90’s? This is your time to shine! This one’s reserved especially for those times when you want to appear extra-didactic.
BONUS TikTok Trend in May 2021: Edited vs. Original Photos
We all know for a fact that editing makes a huge difference on photos. Still, it’s extremely impressive to watch these. This TikTok Trend in May 2021 is for all those edit wonders you pull off on your images. Plus, the sound is simply hilarious.
