“That’s a really good point, Diane, thank you so much for bringing that up.”
Thanks to the new Good Point TikTok trend, I’ve been repeating this quippy soundbite all day, and the trend feels so relevant, it hurts. #GoodPoint features original audio from TikTok user Caitlin Reilly and captures the all-too-familiar feeling of hearing someone state the painfully obvious or hearing your coworker on Zoom say “to piggyback off of what she said…” for the millionth time.
Let’s be real, we have all encountered that person who simply drives you nuts in every single way. You know, the one who says you shouldn’t drink so much coffee (nice try) or mentions how you look tired one afternoon when you’re clearly going on three hours of sleep attempting to stay afloat (hence the coffee). The original video that sparked the trend is spot-on and has inspired many entertaining reactions from the TikTok community, like this one from user matt_o which just made me spit out my water.
To try the trend for yourself, the process is easy: simply recall a time when a person mentioned something that drove you up the wall (my list is quite long), then use the #GoodPoint soundbite, and record your reaction in a quick video. Sarcasm and glaring facial expressions are welcome and encouraged.
Need more inspo? Try recalling a time when your mom reminded you to stop at a red light or when your professor recommended you care for your mental health after assigning hours worth of busywork. Dig into your archive of baffling interactions and I’m sure you’ll come up with some prime content. Remember, you can always get worked up about these astonishingly frustrating people, or you can channel that energy into a hilarious TikTok. When you’re ready, the Good Point TikTok trend is here for you.
