Sometimes the strangest TikTok trends are the ones the world loves the most. The more random, the better. But sometimes they’re so obscure that no one actually knows what it means!

What is the August 27th TikTok?

It all started when a TikTok account @stfusamantha posted a video that began to appear on lots of people’s For You pages.

The video features herself with a bright blue alien-like filter applied. On the screen, she wrote: “If this is on your FYP, congratulations. You’ve been chosen. Remember the date August 27th.”

More and more people starting seeing the TikTok which has now got 1.1. million likes, and everyone began to wonder – what is actually happening on August 27th?

Unfortunately, the answer is nothing. Nothing at all is happening on August 27th. I wish it was something really exciting or creepy. But, it’s nothing.

@stfusamantha obviously made the video as a joke, just to create a new funny TikTok trend and try to get people to believe that something really was happening on August 27th. And it worked! She certainly had a lot of people very confused.
