A new trend is going viral on TikTok called the Electric Love Challenge. But what is it?

Well Electric Love is actually just a popular song that’s become hugely well known after being used on TikTok, and people are actually using it for a variety of different challenges.

Here are two of the Electric Love trends explained!

What is the Electric Love Challenge?

The Electric Love Challenge has been making its way round TikTok for a while now, but you probably know it as having a different name.

It’s more commonly known as the Kissing My Best Friend Challenge, and you guessed it, it involves kissing your best friend when they least expect it and filming their reaction.

People usually do this challenge when they secretly have a crush on one of their best friends and have an inkling that they like them back, and there are some really cute reactions. But there are also some big fails!

Why is it now being called the Electric Love Challenge?

The challenge has sort of changed names from The Kissing My Best Friend Challenge to the Electric Love Challenge – but why?

Electric Love is the name of the song that the trend uses, a track by an American singer called BØRNS.

TikTok users certainly can’t seem to agree on a name for this challenge, but nevertheless it’s still one of the most popular trends on the social media app right now.

The trend has mixed responses

These types of videos can go two ways, really cute or super awkward.

Most of the videos are really sweet, and often result in the friend kissing them back! It’s actually a pretty common occurrence that best friends develop feelings for each other but are too frightened to say just in case the other person doesn’t feel the same. You wouldn’t want to ruin the friendship after all, but this challenge is the perfect way to take the plunge and kiss your friend!

Other responses to the Electric Love Challenge are pretty awkward. If you go to kiss your best friend and it turns out that they don’t feel the same way, you’ll be getting a very different response. But at least you can say you only did it for a TikTok challenge, and then hopefully the friendship won’t be compromised.

There’s another Electric Love Challenge to try too

If you don’t fancy having a go at kissing your best friend, then there’s actually two types of Electric Love challenges on TikTok. Confusing right?

The other Electric Love trend isn’t quite so daunting. All you have to do is sing the song Electric Love and test your voice to see if you can hit all the notes.

A singing challenge sure sounds a lot easier than awkwardly kissing your best friend!
