TikTok Memes of 2021

Memes are a pillar of human connection. Okay, I wouldn’t go that far, but memes have in fact become an important part of modern society and the way humans interact with one another, relate and connect.

So with them being so popular, it’s no wonder that TikTok memes have become a thing as well. If people can sense meme value in something, they will hunt it down and find it. Guaranteed.

Of course, TikTok memes are most of the times TikTok videos, and not images about TikTok, but they’re not just any regular TikToks, they have to have a certain “je ne sais quoi” to qualify as funny TikTok memes that people want to share over and over again. 

So let’s check it out, what are the most popular TikTok memes right now?

Top 14 TikTok Memes of 2021

1. Chugging down sparkling water without burping

If you don’t know the following TikTok meme yet, I don’t know where you’ve been living, but it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. The amount of sheer panic, chaos and unstoppable chain of events is just comedy gold:


2. Scott Sterling

This is another one right up there on the funny scale for me. I’ve mentioned it in a previous TikTok article, but couldn’t help to mention it again because it’s just too funny to miss:


3. Gangsta Cat

Ain’t nothing like a funny animal to create a good TikTok meme. And this one doesn’t disappoint. Well, some TikTok users have complained about the sock not being clean enough, but that doesn’t take away from the comedic factor. In fact, maybe it adds more to it?


4. Nelson the Donkey

If we’re on the subject of animals, this donkey video is quite hilarious, don’t you think? I do bet her neighbors love her indeed:


5. Good Soup

We couldn’t talk about popular TikTok memes without mentioning the “good soup” trend that is so popular right now and that we’ve already talked about in this article on popular TikTok trends of 2021. The scene is from the the TV show “Girls”, but it’s the sound that became extremely popular among TikTokers who have used it to create the most perfect funny-sad videos:


6. TikTok dancers at a regular job

Since TikTok is known by many for its popular dances, I had to introduce a dance-themed TikTok meme. This one portrays how TikTok dancers would act at a normal job, and I have to say the editing and sound effects are spot-on:


7. Khaby Lame

By now, Khaby Lame has kind of become a legend on TikTok and almost all his videos can qualify as memes. As mentioned in our Top 20 Most Liked TikToks of 2021 article, Khabane Lame had 8 videos in the top 20 at the time of writing it and he’s the second most popular TikToker.
