TikTok’s POV challenge offers a different perspective

With TikTok‘s POV challenge you can be (and see) anyone.

TikTok challenges like “chin on palm” and “Are you emo?” have experimented with point of view, but the POV hashtag allows for a little more creative freedom. In some cases, point of view is more literal, like in this video of a someone going down a hell-nah waterslide.

Some users have used the hashtag to create more heartfelt videos.

Others are playing out roles and viewpoints in a more comedic way.

Others are incredibly inventive.

And while there’s a lot of parkour under the hashtag, this video is much more satisfying—and reminiscent of something you’d see on Vine.
