TikTok is one of the hottest social media platforms right now. And it’s not just for teenagers. It seems just about every celebrity is on TikTok these days. Many of them participate in viral challenges on the app. One recent challenge breaking the internet is the #silhouettechallenge.
What is the #silhouettechallenge?
The internet has greatly reduced our attention spans. Several social media platforms play into that by restricting content. Twitter set a character limit on tweets. And the videos on TikTok cannot exceed more than 60 seconds. TikTok is a place to share short videos, and dancing videos are among the most popular types.
TikTok users participate in viral video trends with specific parameters. The #silhouettechallenge. is about showing off the shape of your body in a dimly-lit setting. Doorways are a particularly popular location.
Some users get right to the point, starting off in the silhouette setting. But other videos begin innocently enough, with frumpy robes and messy hair.
Then the lights go out. Or the filter goes on, if you want to be technical about it. Cosmopolitan magazine reveals that the #silhouettechallenge backlight is just a filter called ‘vin rouge.’
