TikTok Locked Up Trend: What is it and How to do it?

It’s a new week, so we have got a new TikTok challenge for you that has gone viral on the video-sharing app. We are pretty sure if you are a TikTok user then, by now the ‘locked up’ trend must have taken over your For You Page on the social media platform.

And if you are one of those people who don’t know anything about the ‘locked up’ trend on TikTok, then, keep scrolling further to learn every detail about the latest TikTok trend.

What is the ‘locked up’ trend on TikTok?

For those of you who are unaware, let us tell you that, the ‘locked up’ trend is simply when the TikTok users upload a video of themselves using the police car filter created by JPhant on the video hosting service.

With the help of this filter, the person can be seen in sitting in the back of a police car as if they have been arrested by the police authorities. In reality, the content creators are not committing any crimes.

Through the ‘locked up’ trend, the TikTokers are revealing the habits that they enjoy that would land them in jail if they were made illegal.

Some popular examples of the viral ‘locked up’ trend

The TikTok videos of the people range from cute and funny to outrageous but let us share with you that the videos that have gone viral on the video-sharing platform are the most relatable ones.

One of the most popular TikTok videos is: “Me if procrastinating becomes illegal.” A user added, “Me the day asking for the price of something then not buying it becomes illegal.” Another one is “Me if petting a stranger’s dog ever becomes illegal.”

A content creator even made sure that their dog hopped on the viral TikTok trend. The person wrote, “When you get arrested for biting everyone’s ankles,” in the video. The users put the text in the video and then add the trending sound to it.

A large majority of TikTok users are adding a trending version of Akon’s song Locked Up, covered acapella by creator @Coinyes. In the trending audio, the section that has been covered by @Coinyes includes Akon’s lyrics: “I’m steady tryna find the motive / Why do what I do? / The freedom ain’t getting no closer (closer) / No matter how far I go.”

How can you make your own ‘locked up’ video?

In order to make your own ‘locked up’ video, you can just think about something that you do regularly for which you would definitely go to the jail if it ends up being illegal.

Let’s take an example, if you are a chocolate lover, then you can write “if eating chocolates became illegal” in the clip, and you can film a video of yourself with the ‘police car’ filter looking out of the window and then you can add the trending audio to it.
