- Her high-pitched yelp has become a trending sound on TikTok, inspiring thousands of hilarious duets.
- Alli Fitz, for one, used Bridges’ video to make her own version of Alicia Keys’ hit song “Fallin’.”
A clumsy TikToker’s high-pitched yelp in response to banging her hip on her bedpost has become a trending sound on the app, inspiring thousands of hilarious TikTok duets.
It all started when Katey Bridges, 26, got ready to post a video of herself over the weekend. As she was backing up from setting up the camera, she crashed into the corner of her
and let out a cry of pain.
“Just trying to show my fit off, but the good Lord had other plans,” she wrote in the caption for the video, which has gotten more than 8.3 million views.
Now, other Tiktokers are taking her video to produce TikTok duets, cleverly using the “ahhh” sound in their own covers of pop songs. A search of the sound on TikTok offers up more than 6,700 videos, most of them duets.
For example, musician and YouTuber Alli Fitz used the sound in place of “I” to sing Alicia Keys’ hit song “Fallin’.”
This TikToker with the username @peningtonn used the sound to sing Nelly and Kelly Rowland’s “Dilemma.”
And what about this duet featuring Bee Gees’ “Staying Alive?”
Canadian actor Stephen Amell from the TV show “Arrow” also weighed in with a duet. In his TikTok duet, he recites the iconic line from the show while pretending to shoot an arrow at Bridges: “You have failed this city.”
It’s timed so that it looks like Bridges has been hit and falls over.
Bridges did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment, but she did let her TikTok fans know she approves of the duets.
“Y’all, these duets and stitches got me HOLLERING,” she wrote in the comments of her original video.
