Name a bad habit of yours that isn’t considered a crime but should be. It can be completely innocent. Like, maybe you bite your nails too often? Or you stalk your exes too much on social media? Anything that makes you feel even the slightest bit guilty — or even proud — will work. That’s what the latest trend on TikTok is all about.
Unofficially dubbed the locked up trend, this craze basically involves a creator filming themselves with the police car filter on while an audio snippet from Akon’s 2004 song "Locked Up" is heard playing in the background. “I’m steady tryna find the motive. Why I do what I do? The freedom ain't getting any closer, no matter how far I go. The car is stolen, no registration," the song goes
At the top of the video, each creator comes up with a funny/ridiculous/somewhat true reason as to why they would be arrested.
For example, one creator wrote, "If making TikTok's with your family was illegal," while another wrote, "Me if taking more selfies than a 13 year old girl was illegal."
Right now, TikTok is overflowing with user videos of partaking in this trend. Some are relatable, some are oddly specific, and others are just wildly goofy. Let’s take a look at some of the best locked up TikTok videos.
