A short film has gone viral on TikTok, and it’s a spoof of popular TikTok star Addison Rae – but in this series, she’s known as Allison Day.
With over 60 million followers, TikTok star Addison Rae has quickly become of the most successful social media personalities ever. At just 19-years-old she’s become best friends with Kourtney Kardashian, brought out a podcast, bagged herself two movie roles and in turn, made a lot of money.
However due to her young age and the fact that social media is such a new phenomenon, people are often sceptical to acknowledge her achievements.
One TikTok user has created an Addison Rae spoof to try and destroy this stereotype, telling a story that actually has a pretty important message behind it.
Addison Rae spoof goes viral on TikTok
A series of videos has been circling TikTok over the past day that tell a story about a girl called Allison Day.
The videos have been professionally produced by a TikTok user called @dhar.mann, who has 2.9 million followers and uploads many different stories to the social media app.
The series, which is titled ‘TikTok famous teen kicked out of designer store, owner lives in regret” is a spoof about popular TikTok star Addison Rae, or in this series, she is called Allison Day.
It’s split into seven parts as TikTok only allows videos to be a maximum of 60 seconds long.
What are the videos about?
The story follows the story of a girl called Allison Day entering a designer fashion store. She finds a dress she really likes and asks the assistant if she can try it on, however she refuses as she believes she is too young to be able to pay for it.
Allison insists that the price is not a problem, but the assistant continues to refuse and says she should “try Forever 21 or some other cheap store”. A group of fans then runs into the store and asks Allison Day for a picture. More fans then turn up at the store as her location has been revealed on Twitter.
The assistant comes over to see what’s happening, and asks why everyone is taking pictures with her. “Do you not know how that is? That’s Allison Day. She has like 25 million followers on TikTok,” says a fan.
When the shop assistant finds out she’s a multi-millionaire she asks Allison Day if she still wants to try the dress on she sarcastically refuses and heads to Forever 21 instead.
The Allison Day TikTok explained
The TikTok series is obviously designed to take the stigma away from TikTok stars.
In today’s society, being a TikToker is a very stereotyped career, as young teens are making millions from creating short online videos, and many people do not understand how they make so much money from essentially having fun.
Therefore, this short film actually has quite an important message embedded within it, urging others not to judge young TikTok stars by their age or appearance.
