TikTok users are currently using a sound from the “Talking Tom Cat” app to express their disapproval of certain statements.
In this case, someone has edited an audio recording of Tom saying “ah ah ah!” so that it starts off with a high-pitched tempo and then gradually slows down until it sounds like “uh uh uh!”.
You can view the original video and sound here.
This TikTok trend involves adding a caption to the video and waving your finger in a disapproving manner. The caption can be a statement you disagree with or a question that you don’t like.
Take the following example from TikTok user brookemonk_.
As you can see, Brooke is being a supportive friend by disagreeing with her statement.
Other examples of the “ah ah ah” trend.
User livvy clearly doesn’t like it when people ask her to FaceTime.
User admoosta pokes fun at how people will procrastinate about getting into the shower and then complain when someone else finally decides to use it.
Finally, we have this example from Mirta Miller (mimiermakeup), who believes that it is bad etiquette to drag up the past.
As you can see, you can also use the “ah ah ah” trend to “cut someone off” because of what they are about to say.
