Ironic but unsurprising, a new study out of the Science is Happening Institute of Technology shows that the overwhelming majority of Tik Tok users are unable to read a clock.
Tik Tok, a mobile app similar to Vine and musical.ly, has opened many of our eyes to an entirely new, mostly-dark side of the Internet.
The app allows mostly talentless people steal a sound clip (typically from a movie or tv show) and simply mouth the words of the musician/actor and boom! You’re famous.
The study focused on a sample size of 100 avid Tik Tok users. They presented an analog clock to each user and asked them to read the time on the clock. Here are the results:
“Out of the 100 participants, 92 of them couldn’t read the clock. Out of those 92, 30 of them decided not to answer because they were ‘too busy making a Tik Tok lip-syncing the new Post Malone song’. The surprising thing is, we had all the clocks set to 12 o clock to make it easier for them.” – Lead Scientist at the Science is Happening Institute of Technology
We could go on and on about how surprised we are about the findings in this study. But let’s be honest, no one is surprised. Instead, here are some god-awful Tik Toks for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy:
