TikTok’s “Silhouette Challenge” is the latest trend to sweep the internet, and viewers can’t get enough of the sexy videos.

Aptly named, social media users doing the challenge are showing off their silhouette figures to sexy music and mood lighting. Filmed in front of a backlit doorframe, partakers in the trend appear as black silhouettes against a red background.

Users typically start their video in casual clothes and strike some sort of pose in the door frame. As the music switches from Paul Anka's "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" to Doja Cat's "Streets," the user transitions into a sultry pose in red mood lighting. Users are also changing from baggy sweats to tighter clothes to accentuate their silhouettes.

Some TikTokers dance and move around in the second half of their video, but others just continue to strike fierce poses against the door frame.

The originator of the silhouette challenge is still unknown, but the trend has quickly taken off. The sound used already has 44,400 videos under it, and the hashtag #silhouettechallenge already has almost 110 million views.
