On TikTok, the algorithm creates a “For You Page” (or FYP) composed of short videos that appeal to your tastes. This FYP borrows the deliciousness and compulsivity of TikTok to tell a story about nothing (but nothing is ever about nothing!) An endless parade of TikTokers, ranging from Disney Adults to dying teenagers to viral preachers to true crime enthusiasts to ASMR Reiki practitioners to Nicole Kidman, all speak in no more than one minute intervals for a story of religion, celebrity worship, the perverse, and the stupid.
