A new trend is going viral on TikTok that sees social media users bringing their objects that have been missing for a really long time to life.

That’s right, it could be that McDonald’s chip that fell down the side of the seat of your car 3 months ago, or that old sock that’s been in the corner of your room for a year.

It doesn’t matter what it is, but all you have to do for this viral trend is give that object eyes and a mouth, add some text and make an absolutely hilarious TikTok video.

Here’s exactly how to do it.

What is the ‘I am lost’ trend on TikTok?

A new trend is becoming popular on TikTok that sees people bringing their missing objects to life.

It involves finding a missing object, such as a lost sock under your bed or a bottle of coke. It could be anything but it must be something that’s been there for a really long time.

Then, you use a filter to give it eyes and apply the ‘I am lost’ sound to make a completely hilarious TikTok.

How to do the ‘I am lost’ TikTok trend

To do the trend you need a specific filter that puts your eyes and mouth onto an object. The filter isn’t actually on TikTok though, it’s on Snapchat.

  • First, take a photo on your phone of the object you want to use for the ‘I am lost’ video.
  • Open the Snapchat app and go to the camera screen.
  • Press the smiley face to the right of the camera button to bring up the filters section.
  • Click on ‘create’ in the bottom left-hand corner.
  • Slide along to the second icon, a picture of eyes and a mouth.
  • Choose the photo that you took earlier.
  • Now you can adjust the size and location of the eyes and mouth using the screen, make sure they are placed over the object.
  • Now take the photo and save it to your camera roll.
  • All you have to do now is upload it to TikTok, add the sound and any text or effects.

Now you need to find the sound on TikTok

  • Open TikTok and press ‘discover’ in the bottom bar.
  • Type ‘#iamlostchallenge’ into the search bar at the top.
  • Find someone who has done the challenge.
  • Click on the sound underneath their username.
  • Press ‘Add to Favourites’.
  • Now the sound will be saved in your favourites for whenever you want to film the TikTok.
