(laughs) - (FBE) Well, for those who don't know, TikTok has become an increasingly popular social media site, with many

(laughs) - That's a little dark humor. - Oh my God! - Do I even have to say anything? Can you not tell by my face what I think of that? Okay, millennial. (Jayka laughs) - We like something, and you try to amp it up a little bit, and then amp it, and it just eventually strays so far enough that it just becomes more and more dark. And I think it gets pretty funny, so what's not to like? - (FBE) Are you ready to try this TikTok? - Yes, yes, yeah! - I'm ready! - So at the very end, we're gonna hit the lens. - Oh okay, yeah, you can do that. - Okay.

Okay, there. - Oh, hello! - Ready, three, two, one. ♪ (soft music) ♪ - (FBE) We got one last trend to show you guys, and this is sort of a dance trend. And this is where people ask their friends to send them a video of them doing a certain move, and then they put them all together. - Oh,...
okay, this one was cool. - Asked a few friends to send me a clip of them doing this. - Hey, it's Michael! - All my favorite people. - Oh, they got the whole Hype House. - These are all the famous TikTokers. - This was like one of the coolest ones, for sure. - Oh, Charlie has to do it extra. - Montoya Twinz. - Super fun. - I like harmless creativity. (Rachel laughs) You know, clean creativity. You know, it's all good. - One thing that's impressive to me is having that many friends to do something like that. If I told my friends hey, send me a video of them, like of you doing this, they'll just look at me like, "no." - Disneyland! - Ah, that's so cute! - Aw! - Hey! And all the characters! - Heh, Gaston. - Cute. - Baymax! - Wow! - That's the kind of dancing I like. - Snow White looked a little nervous. That one was more interesting than the other one, 'cause you had costumes. - There's a wow factor, you know? - Yeah. - I'm still waiting for something to get, for them to amp it up to something funnier. - I asked my friends to send a video doing this, aww. - That's so cute! - Look at him looking, going "what the hell are you doing to me?" - Aw, that's just cute. - Aw the corgi! - That's cool. (Rachel laughs) - I do that with the dog, yes. - That is so... - Doggo! - Get it dog, get with the other dogs. - Look at the hair! - I know! - Oh, I love that! - They don't look too thrilled, those dogs, like "ugh,...
what now?" "Why are you embarrassing me?" - (FBE) Ready to take on this trend? - Sure, why not? - You ready to be a TikToker? - You put your arm way up to do this though. - One, two, there you go. - Okay, I can't believe it's that easy. - All we're gonna do is move your right hand, just moving it, like they look like it's gonna swat a fly, so think one, two, and then clap on three. Yep, that's it! - (Jayka) Five, six, seven, eight! ♪ (slow hip hop music) ♪ - (FBE) For you, Libby, how did you enjoy making these TikToks? And for you, Myles, how was it

teaching

how to TikTok? - I thought it was fun, you're a natural! - Oh, well aren't you... - I had it easy. - You're a good teacher, I had a lot of fun. - I enjoyed that. It gets me out of my box. - I really had no idea, and I didn't know how hard it was, 'cause old people and technology, but you just made it, you showed me how fun it is. - Oh, it's very fun. - And it's not hard at all. - Mm-mm. - I think it's so much fun

teaching

somebody that's in a whole nother generation like what we do as our like, our hobby, or as our entertainment. - (FBE) TikTok is still a fairly new app, when compared to the rest of social media, but it already has a huge audience of users, many of which are

teens

. So how popular would you say the app is with other

teens

? - Oh, it's super popular. Like, I think it's the biggest platform out there right now. - On a one to...
10, you'd give it a 10? - 100%. - I don't know, it's not my thing, but it's a lot of people's. - Yeah, I know my granddaughter, she's 13, she loves it. She does it with her friends. - When you go to school, like at lunch time, you'll just hear like people just have their phone out, and they're just dancing in front of it, and like making like TikTok videos. - (FBE) Ruby, from what you know and what you've seen now from TikTok, how do you think times have changed when it comes to what young people do for fun? - I am amazed at what people finding as entertaining. It's like a whole nother world out there, that I don't know anything about. - Our creativity was a different kind of creativity, that it was still conceptually, it was being creative, doing things that were fun, doing things you could relate to, but the sharing platform's so much better now. - Yeah. - You can share with the planet. That's very cool. - I thought I had a happy childhood, I always say I had the last innocent, happy childhood, but I feel so empty now, that you have all this social media. - Me and my friends would

make

little films, 'cause we didn't call them videos, they were films. And we would literally edit it on a reel to reel with a little viewer with a light behind it, and I would cut it and then use glue and

make

things disappear and reappear on the film. I had wished this, all of these technologies were around when I was a kid. - (FBE) So...
finally, what do you wanna say to people who want to

make

TikToks, but might be intimidated by the app? - Well you need a good teacher first. - (laughs) I literally swore to myself I was like I will never be on TikTok. And then once you get on it, trust me, you will get so addicted to TikTok. (laughs) - Don't be close minded on anything these days. Be open minded. You might have a whole lot of fun being open minded. - I think just be yourself. Honestly! - Oh, it's easy, just get a youth to help you, and you'll be fine. (Myles laughs) - Thanks for watching this episode. - Shout out to Funny People and Kids. - Goodbye! - Bye! - Hey everyone, Lauren, producer here at FBE. Thank you so much for watching this episode.
