TikTok: ‘Upside Down’ Smile Challenge Explained, Everything You Need to Know

TikTok users are crazy about the new Upside Down Smile Challenge. Recently, the unusual expression has become a hot topic on various SNS including TikTok.

Trends are across the platform and users are using it to drive views. While some users have successfully completed the challenge, others are delighted that awkward smiles are handled gracefully.

But what about the upside down smile?

Here’s everything you need to know.

What is the Upside Down Smiley Face Challenge?

Getting an inverted smiley face is quite simple. First, you need to make a grimace on your face. When you’re done, you should switch to a slight smile while keeping the grimaces on your face.

It’s still unclear who started the challenge, but it’s gradually grabbing the attention of Internet users.

According to Know Your Meme, the trend was first launched by TikTokers in the Philippines in May 2022. It was later applied globally in June 2022.

Thousands of people are currently trying out trends on various social media platforms. Some people may have already articulated it well, but others are working to correct it.

Still, few eagle-eyed netizens pointed out that the top-down smiley trend is quite popular among K-pop idols.

The trend is also considered an awkward smile, and people who wear it every day are happy to see it.

Most social media users attach Chay Ngay Di tracks to the background of short clips. The song was sung by Vietnamese musician Son Tung-M TP.

TikToker moves slightly to the bass beat of the song, but tries to show off an inverted smile when the sound drops.

What other trends are trending on social media platforms?

Snapchat introduced a new crying face filter a few weeks ago, and it went viral shortly after.

The sad filter caused a stir in social networking services (SNS), with the user’s face turning into tears.

The humorous look is that people often don’t even know they’re being filmed with a crying filter.

Recently on TikTok, the trend of ‘How Dora Explorer Die’ became a hot topic.

Users had to type a question into Google, look at the answers written in a search engine, and make a facial expression.

Some of the results displayed on the site suggest that Dora died after falling ill, while others suggest that she died after drowning.

Nonetheless, the series actually ended with Dora completing her mission and thanking the viewers for their support.
