An Indonesian woman has gone viral with millions of views on TikTok after she unintentionally posted a video of herself sneezing in front of the camera.
Jiddana Dusturia, also known as Grina on the social media platform, revealed she never intended to upload the sneezing video on her TikTok when she filmed the original post, according to Tribun News as translated by Coconuts Jakarta.
The short video shows Grina positioning herself in front of the camera when a sneeze suddenly came out. The clip was an outtake for another video she was recording.
“I left the [sneezing] video in the drafts. And then I accidentally pressed upload, and at that time I didn’t realize that it had been uploaded to my TikTok,” Grina told Tribun. “After that, I played a game. The next day my group chats were flooded [by friends] who said that [my video] entered FYP.”
FYP (For You Page) is the TikTok homepage where users can see videos they might find interesting. The app’s recommendation system is influenced by the user’s interaction with content, such as liking, sharing, commenting, posting and following an account containing similar interests, the app explained in a post.
However, this could also be an indication that a video has gone viral when it starts to show up in other users’ FYP, Coconuts Jakarta noted.
The video has been viewed more than 11 million times on the app and received more than 731,000 likes and 15,000 comments, as of this writing.
Grina is not the only social media user who went viral for doing the bare minimum in a video. In August, an Indonesian YouTuber gained millions of views for doing absolutely nothing for more than two hours. The same can be said for a Vietnamese TikTok user, who gained millions of views for simply staring at the camera earlier this month.
