The Top 10 Weirdest Trends That Went Viral This Year

2020’s almost over, and TikTok lives to see another year. Gen Z’s favorite social media platform is still influencing every corner of the entire internet.

Here are the top 10 weirdest TikTok trends that managed to define 2020.

1. This unsavory tasting challenge

Sorry for reminding you that guys dipped their b*lls in soy sauce to see if they could taste it. I, too, wish this was something we could all just forget about.


oh.. my god….. 🀭😳

2. And its fitting counterpart

Ladies, we aren’t off the hook either. Some girls got so bored during quarantine that they stuck ice cubes up you-know-where.


It was cool ❄️#fyp #foryou #keepingbusy #icecube #trend #trending #viral #quarantine #funny #staysafe #stayathome #health #covid19 #petlover #funny

♬ Pew Pew Pew – Auntie Hammy

3. Putting babies in the splash zone

So, this one was kind of hit or miss.


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ no babies were harmed in this video #fyp #momsoftiktok

♬ Ah Eh – πŸ’šπŸ’š

4. When people started shaving down their teeth

With nail boards. I’m not a dentist, but this cannot possibly be good for you. Luckily, the doctors of TikTok stepped in to really lay down the law.


@cheneltiara why you do dis to me! πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜­ PSA: I don’t recommend doing this ✌🏻 have your dentist check to make sure it’s safe first! #teeth #braces

5. At-home mole removal

It looks as painful as it sounds. TikTok doctors clapped back with the truth here, yet again.


#moleremoval is one trend NOT to jump on unless you want a #scar for your #promlook – Or even worse! #baddecisions #dermatologist #moreyouknow #fyp

♬ Bad Decisions – The Strokes

6. Another baby challenge

Some moms went out on a limb here and decided to flash their nursing babies. The reactions they managed to capture are absolutely priceless.

♬ Drop ‘Em Out – Wheeler Walker Jr.

7. The strawberry salt soak

Apparently, our grocery-bought strawberries have little worms crawling in them. This is a trend that’s great for my physical health, I guess. My mental health is a different story.


WAIT FOR IT… Still trying to think happy thoughts today. #fyp #foryou #strawberrieswithbugs #bugsinstrawberries #rednoseday #got2bhome

8. The childhood baby blanket reveal

We all had a baby blanket at some point, but these TikTokers kept theirs well into adulthood. The results are absolutely shocking. This one seriously just looks like a giant ball of yarn.


i think i win the baby blanket challenge, wbu??? #fyp #babyblankets #blanketchallenge This took 21 years of devotion, taking my blanket everywhere

9. Biting Martinelli’s juice containers

Yes, people actually started biting into those little Martinelli’s juice cartons because it apparently sounded like they were biting into an actual apple. There are some things on the internet that you just cannot make up.


I got the tiktok apple juice that sounds like an apple #foryou #relatable #applejuice

♬ Eine kleine Nachtmusik – Mozart

10. And then there’s this

So, people started rubbing rings on their foreheads to see it left a black line, which they apparently thought was a sign of iron deficiency. That turned out to be completely inaccurate, but what else do we expect? Welcome to the internet!


Wtf @dixiedamelio

Well, those were somewhat entertaining! At least people finally stopped doing the Tide pod challenge. That was seriously a dark time.
