TikTok's "Make People Think It's A Photo" Challenge Will Make You Do A Double Take
There's a new TikTok trend popping up on everyone's "For You" page that has many users doing a double take. TikTok's "Make People Think It's A Photo" challenge is definitely that — a challenge — as it requires all subjects to remain perfectly still. If you've got a steady hand, are great at posing, and love to get creative, you may want to try it out for yourself.
The "Make People Think It's A Photo" challenge (aka #NotAPhoto) is all about TikTokers freezing in place to make it look like their video is a still photo. When the music drops, they move, revealing that it was a video the whole time.
To take the trend to another level, some users are setting up their "photos" with props to make it undeniably a picture. By using household items like plastic wrap and string, you can pretty much fool anyone into thinking your video is a freeze frame. You may also want to get yourself a tripod if you know you can't keep your arm steady. There are other tips and tricks you can learn just by scrolling through the #NotAPhoto tag on your phone, which has more than 260 million views. These eight TikTokers doing the "Make People Think It's A Photo" challenge really nailed it as well, so maybe they can inspire you to create your very own.
1. Use Plastic Wrap As Water
2. Get Your Dog To Stay Put
To really impress your friends, have your dog try out this trend. Show off just how well they can stay put by having them freeze in place. TikToker @kona.thehound did this with their dog, Rambo, who looks like he's in the middle of a walk. Other good doggos who really nailed this trend with some tennis balls are @goldenretrieverlife and @honeytheiggy.
3. Try Not To Blink
Blinking and taking big breaths will instantly give it away that it's not a photo, so try your hardest to keep your eyes open and breathing to a minimum before the beat drops. TikToker @lolastussy does this really well. Even the comments praise how well @lolastussy nails it by saying things, like "I honestly wouldn't have known if u didn't say it."
4. Put Some Popcorn On A String
5. Make Yourself A Thick Smoothie
6. Pose With Your Cat
Just like dogs have gotten in on the trend, cats have attempted it as well. Pose with your cat just like TikToker @pekyramona. If you have a chill cat who doesn't move around much, it'll work perfectly. However, if you've got a restless cat, try this trend out when they're taking one of their many catnaps.
