A Tik Tok video of a girl trying Kombucha for the first time becomes a viral meme due to the intense emotions on display. Twitter users had plenty of reactions.
We’ve all felt an innate dislike for something that later grows on us, like a really annoying pop song that plays on every Target you visit, or the first time you drink beer. It’s hard to represent such complex yet universal feelings into a meme, but this Tik Tok manages to do that.
The video is simple. A girl records herself as she tries Kombucha for the first time. At first, she’s not into it, laughing and saying that the drink smells like a public restroom. Then, she takes a sip. She doesn’t like it but then kind of does, going through an epic face journey that is the reason why the meme has reached so many people.
People took to the video fast, commenting on the amount of emotion on display and how versatile the whole thing is. Users related to the Kombucha girl instantly, comparing this reaction to their feelings every time they look in the mirror naked, when a friend asks them to go out, or when doing other activities that are acquired tastes.
