TikTokers Need Answers In The ‘That’s On Amazon’ TikTok Trend

Have you ever met someone who is living their absolute best life and you think to yourself, “I want some of what they’re having!” I experienced this recently when chatting with a friend who doesn’t drink coffee but is somehow alert at 6 AM every morning. In full transparency, I don’t understand these types of people, nor can I comprehend how any human can function without a daily cappuccino. Also, no caffeine…ever? In this economy? 

Similar to how I wish I got the “morning person” gene, creators are losing their minds over things they wish they had in the “That’s On Amazon” TikTok trend — whether it’s work-life balance, a healthy relationship, shiny hair, or energy after a long workday. The trend features a far-too-relatable soundbite where a woman says, “That’s on Amazon? Where you get that?!” In other words, if you’re a person who doesn’t need espresso to be approachable in the morning, please Amazon Prime me whatever you’re having. I need it. 

The goal of the “That’s On Amazon” TikTok trend is to present your “ideal” scenario and play this trending sound in the background, implying that you’d like that wonderful thing ASAP. For example, @nickyschmaderer wouldn’t mind if her kids behaved in Target for five seconds. TikToker @aymansbooks wouldn’t be mad about having a real-life Wattpad experience, and @dianarantamaki just wants some sleep. In all seriousness, does that last one come with free shipping? Send help.

As with many viral TikTok trends, I’m continuously impressed at how creators can take a basic soundbite and put their unique spin on it — from lighthearted and endearing to sarcastic and dark. One version by TikToker @malloryloussaert says, “When you see someone who has time to study, work out, go to class and have a social life,” followed by the trending sound, “That’s on Amazon? Where you get that?” Creator @libbychristensen wants “clear mental health” year-round and supplements her request with the caption, “I will pay for prime.” TikToker @sweetannieod simply wants to go on a date to a hockey game, @sarahgraysun is just trying to hang with her siblings, and @tannermmann is shopping for an attitude adjustment (although I don’t think you can overnight those — sorry, sis). 

You know I love a funny, easy-to-execute TikTok trend that makes use of a catchy soundbite and universal feeling — which, in this case, is wanting something you can’t have. Whether you’re figuring out how to stop procrastinating, trying to get over your fear of heights, or you simply want a stuffed elephant, give this entertaining TikTok trend a try and let the world know what you’re looking for. For your sake, I hope it arrives on your doorstep in perfect condition.
