People have taken to online-sharing platforms to share stories of their day to their friends and family amid the indefinite lockdown that has restricted all of us within the walls of our house. Like any social media platform, TikTok is also getting newer challenges and trending videos, and one such trend that you might have come across if you’re a TikTok user will be the ‘I like the view’ song.
What the ‘I like the view’ video is all about
The substance behind the ‘I like the view’ videos revolves around a scene from the popular reality show ’90 Day Fiancé’ featuring ‘Big’ Ed Brown and Rosemarie Vega. It’s a show about couples who have built their relationship off the internet but haven’t quite met each other in person.
The ‘I like the view’ clip is a scene from one of the show’s episodes where Brown and Rose settle down the poolside at a hotel and Rose acknowledges how good the view is by saying the now ‘trending’ line. To this Big Ed responds saying “You do? You’re my best view” when Vega gives away one of her many iconic facial expressions and saying “Meh”.
‘I like the view’ original song
The ‘I like the view’ line went from popular to viral when New Zealander TikToker Tyler Warwick mixed the audio clip from the scene with the song “Cyber Sex” by Doja Cat. Although his video has only been liked by 40K users, the original sound from his video has been reused in over 1.7 million videos.
