TikTok, TikTok, TikTok…
We know what you’re thinking: this sounds like the monotonous ticking of a clock and reminds you of the times when you felt like you were going to die of boredom. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. TikTok is pretty much the most entertaining video app at the moment and if you aren’t watching, then you need to be. In today’s fast-paced society, bite-sized entertainment is where it’s at, which is why we love that TikTok videos are only 15 seconds long!
This week saw an adorable pet dressing up as our favourite Pokémon and the introduction of a new trend that’s sweeping the internet. Here they are, the top trending TikTok videos from the past week!
As we’re sure you all know, we here at TenEighty HQ are easily impressed. That’s why we promise you’ll find @nickktube‘s dancing mesmerising! Showing of his skills to Swarmz’s Bally as part of the Bally Challenge, he’s left us wishing we were as smooth as him.
If you’re like us, we can bet you spent at least 15 minutes trying to emulate his dance moves. (And if you’re really like us, you failed miserably.)

OMG, we can’t get over how CUTE @Charlie looks in his Pikachu onesie! We didn’t think dachshunds could get any more adorable, but then we watched this video! Who else is resisting the urge to buy a Pokémon onesie for their own furry friend?
Tortor Smith’s stop motion is AMAZING
It’s no secret that we’re HUGE fans of Tortor Smith‘s work. Their stop motion videos are definitely some of the best we’ve seen on YouTube, so we were stoked to see them also posting their creations to TikTok. We’re still blown away at how smooth the videos are – you’d find it hard to believe they’re stop motion and not filmed all in one shot!
The Microwave Challenge
At first we thought the Microwave Challenge was simply filming your microwave while reheating last night’s takeaway, but we couldn’t have been more wrong. (Which we’re relieved about, since what our idea definitely didn’t sound too entertaining.)
In actuality, the Microwave Challenge is when you effortlessly spin yourself around, like the inside plate of a microwave. Honestly, we’re still not sure how those participating in the challenge are accomplishing this. Is it some editing trick we’re unaware of or are they secretly magic?! We don’t know!
Hello, Joe Wicks!
Joe Wicks has been sharing his fitness tips on YouTube for years and has now made the jump to TikTok. We didn’t think it’d be possible to film a full cooking tutorial or workout routine in 15 seconds, but we were wrong! If we knew it was this easy, we would have started working out ages ago!
We’re sweating just watching his videos!
So there you have it…
The top trending TikTok videos from the past week! Not only were we thoroughly entertained by this week’s videos, we were also super excited to see more YouTubers make the jump to the platform. The more chances we get to see videos from our faves, the better!
