Here are Some Scottish TikToks That Sent Me

Here’s the tea: if Trump actually ends up banning TikTok we’re all just going to end up using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). While that’s just a sacrifice we’ll have to make, it’s crucial not to forget that you definitely have to set your location to an interesting spot. You can set your location to almost anywhere in the world! But I’m just going to have to make the case for Scotland here.

We already know Scottish Twitter is an absolute riot:

But just let me put you onto Scottish TikTok.

I have the absolute pleasure of being able to browse TikTok from Scotland. Humor is simply God tier. Of course, the absolutely rich TikTok algorithm knew that I had recently returned to my Scottish home land. The app immediately started throwing out TikToks like this one:

Once I remembered that TikTok follows our every move and greets us with location-specific content, I knew I’d be in for a treat. Let’s jump right into a few of my favorites that I’ve seen this week.

All I’m saying is when (if?) Trump bans TikTok, you now know where to set your VPN.

  • Do you love Scottish TikTok as much as I do?

    • For sure.
    • Not really my vibe.
