Due to the many lockdown measures worldwide as a result of the corona crisis, millions of people managed to find the TikTok app last year. The Chinese video app was downloaded en masse and grew enormously in 2020. Many videos were spread all over the internet. Which were the most popular? We list them for you.
1. Bella Poarch
The only nineteen-year-old Filipino Bella attracted the most viewers last year. Her video was viewed more than 530 million times and liked 43.4 million times. She received a million responses to the video, in which she mimics the song M to the B by Milly B. Due to the success of the video, she attracted no less than 45 million followers in a short time.
Nathan Apodaca, who rides through the streets on a longboard on the song Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, finished in second place, drinking from a bottle of raspberry juice. The video went viral and the makers of the juice, Ocean Spray, even gave him a truck. Mick Fleetwood, founder and drummer of Fleetwood Mac, also appreciated the video and even made his own version from.
You probably also didn’t get through the necessary Zoom meetings this year. Caitlin Reilly explains in her TikTok video perfectly exposes the frustration of annoying colleagues who continuously interrupt your video meeting. Many TikTok users found it recognizable and massively shared Reilly’s video.
Among the most popular videos on TikTok last year, we also see a video from the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers led by LeBron James took the title in the American basketball league NBA in October, after a victory over the Miami Heat. However, it was not sizzling images of the finale that occupied TikTok’ers, but the dance steps of fourteen-year-old Jalaiah Harmon.
5. Will Smith
Will Smith is now 52 years old, but he still beats all the younger celebrities on TikTok. The actor was tempted to the Wipe it Down challenge, in which TikTokkers clean a mirror and after a few swipes enter a completely different world. Smith can be swiped after a few times turn into Jay, the role he played in the movie Men in Black.
