The "Pretty Boy Swag" meme on TikTok is inspiring people to turn themselves into their favourite pop culture figures and it's the app's best trend yet.
TikTok is on its way to becoming the new Vine and the social video platform has already produced some truly great memes. The latest and greatest is the "Pretty Boy Swag" transformation meme, which is pretty much what you're expecting it to be.
Soulja Boy's 2010 jam "Pretty Boy Swag" is getting the TikTok treatment as people post videos of themselves looking like various pop culture icons. The "Pretty Boy Swag" TikTok craze might be the best thing to come out of that app so far and, if you're anything like us, you won't be able to stop watching.
Some of the transformations are truly uncanny.
