A new TikTok trend is rocking the social media platform as users lip-synch to an uplifting gospel song – while paradoxically describing their most shocking life stories.
To the soaring backing track “In the Sanctuary,” performed by Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers, people move, groove and tremble – often with exaggerated hand gestures and long mouth expressions – as they share their wildest experiences ever with the many go viral.
One woman revealed she discovered she had slept next to a dead body for months, while another revealed she had a stalker in high school.
Many of the videos on TikTok have gone viral, with the track being attached to more than 28,000 clips from users dropping their crazy storytimes.
Here are some of the craziest stories out there.
‘I’m laughing about it now but lol #stalker’
A TikTok was shared by user Emily Zeck aka @thatpineapplegirl.
“I’m laughing about it now lol #stalker,” she captioned the 1-minute clip. “When I was in high school, I got an international call from a 30-year-old man I’ve never met claiming to be in a relationship with me,” she wrote in her video.
“A week later he sells everything, leaves his country and shows up at my local Starbucks looking for me,” she claimed. Zeck then revealed how freaked out she was, blocked him and kept the situation secret from her parents.
However, three years passed, and while Zeck thought the worst was over, it apparently wasn’t.
“I come home to four police cars on a random Tuesday and my mother is crying because the creep found my parents, threatened my family and sent screenshots of a catfish profile of me and me [claimed I was in love with him,” she said of her alleged pursuer.
“This guy knew every detail of my personal life,” she detailed in text on her TikTok post. “The cops suggested I don’t go anywhere by myself.”
In a follow-up video, she went into more detail about what reportedly went down. She said that the stalker had hired a private investigator — who contacted her father. The PI told her dad that the man was actually someone in Nigeria who hacked Zeck’s personal information. Thankfully, the man quietly went away, Zeck claimed, and she hasn’t heard from him in more than a decade.
Tender Tinder time
User Jacqueline Woodwell shared a video in which she described her experience dating on Tinder — while she was four months pregnant.
Woodwell explained how she had just gotten out of a relationship and realized “she’s a single mom before actually becoming a mother.”
After one guy messaged her, they went on a date. “He was smitten and wanted to continue dating. I told him as much as I wanted to, I [couldn’t because] I’ve been busy,” she wrote, alluding to her busy life as a pregnant woman.
In a sweet move, “tinder boy” even reportedly sent her flowers after the birth.
She also shared that her daughter’s father came back and wanted to try to get their relationship working again – but Woodwell said she was finally moving on.
The next day, her Tinder beau asked her out on a second date.
True love triumphed and Woodwell shared she’s been dating her Tinder match for five years – and they plan to wed later this year.
Reagan Baylee posted about their crazy encounter on TikTok, jokingly captioning it, “There’s never been a trend more worthy of this story.”
As she exaggeratedly mimicked singing into a microphone, Baylee revealed that there was an incident when she moved into her apartment and flies and roaches started crawling all over her floor.
Her manager said at the time the weather was just hot and every tenant had bugs in their homes. However, Baylee said she still can’t sleep and things are “getting started[ed] feel super off.”
She tried to calm herself by thinking everyone was going through the same problem as her as the global coronavirus pandemic raged on.
But soon a terrible, rancid smell began to pollute their apartment. She said she called building management, who reportedly found nothing unusual. Baylee even called the police — twice, she claimed, to no avail.
Meanwhile, property management reportedly berated her for “making a fuss” and told her to “leave the neighbors alone.”
For better or worse, Baylee eventually discovered what was causing the disruptive interference.
She had been sleeping 3 feet away from the body of a dead neighbor – for two months.
