10-second "Tsk" Timer (Japanese: \チッ/10秒タイマー) refers to a series of hand-drawn animated videos in which various characters are clicking their noises with displeased looks. It became popular among amateur illustrators and animators in Niconico between late 2012 and 2013.


On August 13th, 2012, Nekomura (ねこむら) and three other Niconico users made and uploaded two videos. In the one, Hatsune Miku clicks her noise once while showing anger on her face (below, left). The other, titled "10-second "Tsk" Timer", offered a 10-second timer by reusing the former, in which Kagamine Rin pops up with an innocent smile at the end. On Niconico, it worked like a time signal by utilizing the autoloop feature of the video player.


The latter time signal video had earned over 300 thousand views within its first month and became the subject of parodies or redraws among amateur illustrators and animators.[1] The number of videos posted in its first year reached about 100. Reflecting the popularity, Nekomura added the 3-minute timer version for instant noodles on August 19th.[2]
