A TikToker says she staged a fake wedding photoshoot to get a guy to notice her. While the TikToker may be trolling, viewers are praising her.

TikToker @dieschaklin’s humorous video shows a staged wedding photoshoot, including pictures of her and the “groom.” She’s in a white wedding dress, and there’s even a horse in the photos.

Captioned “Worst part is he watched my story and still didn’t reach out,” the 20-second video got over 2.7 million views and 553,000 likes since it was posted on Nov. 18.

The text overlay reads, “Remembering the time I faked my own wedding and had a professional photoshoot so he would reach out.” @dieschaklin is shaking her head and making a facetious sad face in the beginning of the video before it cuts to the fake wedding photoshoot.

Apparently, the fake wedding photoshoot seems to be capitalizing on “the feminine urge” trend. This trend includes memes and videos that begin with the statement “the feminine urge to.”

In a series of lighthearted follow-up videos, @dieschaklin answers comments on her fake photoshoot video in funny voiceovers, songs, and facial expressions. The facetious tone of her follow-up videos seem to confirm she was joking about faking her wedding to get a guy to notice her.
