From dance challenges to comedians’ impressions of relatable situations, we can’t help but stay glued to TikTok. Recently, the 2009 song “Never Forget You” by British indie rock band Noisettes is now part of a trend. The concept for the trend is simple — it’s about longing for a person, thing, or a feeling from the past that left a mark on you. As the Never Forget You TikTok trend ignites nostalgia, it’s now being used to look for childhood friends, crushes, and more. So if you’re thinking of someone from your past, maybe TikTok is the way to go.
Reuniting with a long-lost childhood playmate
@juliennekarl_Tried to find his socmed but I can only remember his first name :/ ##fyp ##foryou♬ Never Forget You – Noisettes
The most attention-grabbing and kilig-worthy Filipino content in this trend is when TikTok user Julienne Karl Genove started searching for her long-lost childhood friend using only a few photos she had. It quickly went viral, and got plenty of (bogus) responses from guys claiming to be the little boy in the photos.
But eventually, fate found a way. And so, Julienne Karl found his childhood friend Kenneth. And then they became friends again like nothing separated them.
Here’s the moment they found each other:
And here they are together IRL:
Judging from their recent posts, they’re now firmly in each other’s lives. May our response be “sana all”.
Plenty more people have gone viral riding this trend. Some are more serious than others, but they’re all pretty entertaining.
If you still have outstanding debt, here’s a reminder to never forget it
If you can’t pay in traditional coins or paper bills, or even bank transfers, maybe settling your balance using TikTok’s gold coins would do. You see, there are so many options, you’re just the one making excuses.
Speaking of utang, here’s a creative way to send your IOUs
@mamijoshhhhDahil nauuso ang singilan ng utang dito sa tiktok. flex ko na sila baka maunahan ako singilin.. ##joshreact♬ original sound – ɢᴜᴍᴇ. –
Still making utang for that LV bag, new appliance, and new plant from your neighbor, Malou? Instead of seenzoning your neighborhood moneylender, send them a TikTok video instead.
Potential love interest gone wrong?
He had us in the first half, not gonna lie.
Reuniting with your archenemy from high school?
@abelbarrientos21✨Re-upload ko lang di nag trending kahapon eh✨ ##abelnation ##foryoupage ##tiktokactorsph♬ Never Forget You – Noisettes
High school life is unforgettable. And that’s exactly why this person can’t forget his high school archenemy. KMJS, is there even a way to reconcile these two?
Talk about character development
@mavilma08walang imposible kaya ung mga batang ganun nd dapat sinusukuan ##tiktokphilippines ##enjoylife ##buhayguro ##teachtokerist ##fyp♬ original sound – ɢᴜᴍᴇ. –
Teachers deserve better, TBH. Buti na lang may character development?
From petty catfights in high school to marriage
Now, who’s the Andres de Saya?
For damsels in distress, time to reconnect with your saviors
@ereykuhalam kong malabo yung vid, kasing labo ng pagkakataong mahahanap kita HAHAHAHAHA charot help me ##fyp ##foryoupage ##skating ##illneverforgetyou♬ Never Forget You – Noisettes
Could this mysterious man be her Prince Charming? If these two find each other again, they’re basically living in a K-drama.
This sound doesn’t only apply to humans
You know that resident cockroach lurking in your house? Maybe it’s time we learn how to make friendships with them and learn from this boy.
