It’s summer and that means road trips, late nights out with friends and family vacations. Luckily, the latest trend from TikTok was apparently designed for these types of gatherings.
TikTok started a singalong trend that feels like siblings are making things up while driving the car to shore. In fact, the meme/game/whatever you want to call it appears to have been invented and popularized by creator Maddie Grace Jepson and her sister.
The wonderful horror of the grimace shake TikTok trend
Late last month, Jepson posted a tiktok with the caption: “POV: I just made up this game on vacation and I make my little sister play it with me every time and sing the jingle xxx.”
In the TikTok, Jepson begins the game with a lilting musical announcement: “If… you know… the words to the song… sing long… sing long.”
If. You know. The lyrics to the song. sing along

The game from there is easy. Usually a person only sings one word of a song. When the other person(s) recognize the song, sing it. If they can’t guess, the first person adds one or more more words. The game continues until the guess is correct. Sometimes people who obviously have common interests manage to guess the song incredibly quickly
Publish Jepson’s original post, the tendency is aloof. Many versions of the game have accumulated thousands upon thousands of likes. and it Is It’s entertaining to see how well some friends and relatives know each other’s tastes. People often make the jingle silly and increase the difficulty of guessing—either by using just one word or by barely trying to match the song’s original sound.
So there you have it, TikTok has the perfect game for you the next time you’re sitting by the campfire or struggling to make the trip to the beach.
