‘If I Was A’ Trend: How To Participate In This Aesthetic TikTok Trend

Published

on

Use the If I Was A trend to give your next TikTok a pop of color, glam and personality. Here’s how to craft this new aesthetic TikTok trend.


A wave of color and inspiration has swept over TikTok’s FYP due to the latest eye-pleasing If I Was A trend. These TikTok videos embody art to describe people’s personalities. It’s a fun and rewarding sensation that many do not want to miss.


There is a lot of reliance on TikTok’s app regarding trends. Most TikTok trends use filters, such as the Instant Film filter during the Polaroid trend. Sometimes, they rely on green screens or sounds found within the platform. Still, many users rely on outside apps to help craft their videos. CapCut is a video editing software on Android and iPhone devices that content creators commonly use. It allows users more versatility when trimming videos, perfect for the If I Was A Trend.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

The first step when participating in the If I Was A TikTok trend is prepping the questions and answers. The questions can be as many as wanted or needed, but it needs to ask ‘If I Was A’ and insert one aesthetic word or phrase. Such as ‘If I Was A Color’ or ‘If I Was A Season.’ Once the questions are prepared. It’s time to search for the answers. Head to Pinterest or a similar platform and save 24 photos as an answer for each question. For example, the question ‘If I Was A Color’ could be answered with 24 images of brightly yellow objects. A critical thing to remember is to have 24 visuals for each question. So more questions also mean more photographs.


Assemble The Aesthetic Video

Participating in the If I Was A trend isn’t like most other TikTok trends. Usually, trends depend on TikTok’s app alone, but the If I Was A is unique because it requires CapCut––or another video editing medium. Start by saving a TikTok with the sound from the “Run Boy Run” song by Woodkid. Now import that video into CapCut to extract the sound. In CapCut, use the extracted sound to craft the video. Start by importing the first photo. The first photo displaying the caption ‘If I Was A’ needs to be 0.8 seconds long. Next, import the 24 pictures for the first question and cut them to 0.1 seconds long. Then add a color background at the end of the 24 photos that match the answers’ visual style and set it at 0.9 seconds.

Once the first question is compiled, it’s time to add the text. Start with the first picture of the 24 photos and add the last word of the question. If the question is ‘If I Was A Color, then the word would be ‘Color.‘ Extend the length of the text throughout all 24 photos. Now head to the color background and respond to the question. However, it gets tricky as it needs to match the sound. Add the first half of the answer at the beginning and the second half after the disruption. So for yellow, it will start as ‘Yell’ and end as ‘Yellow.‘ Now rinse and repeat the steps for each question until the video is finished.

When uploading the finished result to TikTok, remember to cover the video sound with the actual sound from the artist on TikTok. Artists must get credit for their songs being used in the trend. Since the If I Was A trend is question and answers based, some creators find close people in their lives to participate, such as a husband, sister or best friend. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. If I Was A is a great way to reflect self-identity. Use the hashtags #ifIwasa and #ifiwasatrend on TikTok to share.

Hillary Clinton on Kim Kardashian’s Criminal Justice Efforts: ‘Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen’ (Exclusive)

Published

on

Hillary Clinton is singing the praises of Kim Kardashian. The former Secretary of State and host of the docuseries Gutsy has nothing but appreciation for the reality star’s criminal justice reform efforts.

Hillary and daughter Chelsea Clinton spoke with ET’s Deidre Behar at Variety’s Power of Women gala in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and the pair opened up on which of the many celebs they interviewed — as part of their Apple TV+ docuseries — impressed and impacted them the most.

“Kim Kardashian was unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” Hillary said in awe. “Because she is serious about trying to help people have been been incarcerated unfairly, for too long.”

Kim’s appearance on Gutsy made headline in August when a preview clip revealed that the reality star and law student actually bested Hillary in a legal pop quiz show-down.

Another guest who wowed the famous mother and daughter was Megan Thee Stallion.

“[She] was so calm and impressive as we were painting with her,” Hillary recalled.

“And she also had a lot more talented than we did, which surprised no one,” Chelsea added with a laugh.

While the Clintons have been working together on Gutsy, it seems that Chelsea isn’t planning on following in her mother’s footsteps when it comes to potential political ambitions.

“I think all of us right now are political, especially if you’re a woman in America, when we have politicians deciding what’s best for our bodies instead of we knowing what’s best for ourselves,” She shared. “So I think we all are political.”

“I have no plans to run for public office, but I care deeply about being an engaged citizen and deeply about insuring that my children have even more rights than I’ve had,” she added.

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s inspiring 8-episode docuseries, Gutsy, is streaming now on Apple TV+.

Tony Khan Isn’t Releasing AEW Wrestlers After WWE’s Power Play

Published

on

News continues to swirl about different wrestlers wanting to be released from their AEW contracts. Tony Khan reportedly won’t be letting anyone go.


Tony Khan and AEW have had a challenging summer, which has led to some wrestlers reportedly wanting out of their contracts with the company. A recent report indicates that All Elite Wrestling doesn’t intend to release performers from their contracts early and has made that clear. It’s a hardline stance by Khan, but probably a line in the sand that should have been drawn sooner.


Based on at least one source, it’s clear that WWE attempted to raid some of AEW’s contracted wrestlers. Khan alluded to this during the post-All Out media scrum, indicating that he wasn’t happy with how the company has approached AEW since Triple H took over in late July. The co-founder and owner of All Elite Wrestling told gathered reporters that he wasn’t going to “sit back and take this f***ing s***.” He vowed to take the fight to WWE when the time came, and this new mandate might be the first step towards backing those statements up.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Speaking about Khan’s reaction to AEW wrestlers demanding their releases, Dave Meltzer had this to say on Wrestling Observer Radio: “Nobody’s getting released. That’s the doctrine. Tony Khan made that very clear, I guess, in the last couple of days.” Meltzer continued, stating that “[the WWE] really came after [Tony], it’s pretty blatant. [WWE] came after so many of the guys. Basically, everyone that had a previous relationship with Triple H was contacted.”

It had been rumored that WWE had made overtures to The Young Bucks, but Meltzer makes it sound like anyone who’s worked for Triple H was contacted. That’s a large chunk of AEW’s roster, including some of the biggest names, including Malakhai Black, Adam Cole, FTR, and Swerve In Our Glory. Khan didn’t take too kindly to WWE’s power play and let it be known that he won’t void any contracts moving forward. It’s worth noting that plenty of misinformation has been spread about certain wrestlers asking for and being granted their release.

Black recently appeared on Instagram to clarify why he’d stepped away from AEW and firmly stated that he’d be back with the company soon. There was also a rumor that Bobby Fish tried to lure Cole and Kyle O’Reilly back to WWE following his release, but everyone involved denied those claims. Miro is another former WWE star who had to clear the air following rumors about his being unhappy circulated as well. None of the “reports” or rumblings about AEW stars bailing for WWE have proven true since Triple H took over. It’s essential to take news with a grain of salt, especially when so many people on both sides of the fence have things to gain by spreading misinformation. Tony Khan has made his stance clear on releasing his wrestlers and won’t be letting AEW talent walk back to WWE easily.
