About

Acting Like You're in A Wes Anderson Film is a trend on TikTok in which users post videos filmed in the cinematography style of Wes Anderson movies under a variation of the catchphrase and caption, "You better not be acting like you're in a Wes Anderson film." The trend began in April 2023 and became increasingly popularized throughout the month.

Origin

On April 8th, 2023, TikToker[1] @avawillyums posted a video captioned, "You better not be acting like you're in a Wes Anderson film when I get there," writing in the description, "With a good imagination, everything is symmetrical. Let a girl day dream!" The video is filmed to resemble Wes Anderson's style of cinematography and gained over 11 million views in just under two weeks (shown below).

Wes Anderson's Response

On June 10th, 2023, The Times[6] published an interview with Wes Anderson where they ask him about TikTok trends related to him. Anderson admits he's never seen any of the videos and has only heard of them, quoted as saying:

"I’m very good at protecting myself from seeing all that stuff If somebody sends me something like that I’ll immediately erase it and say, ‘Please, sorry, do not send me things of people doing me.’ Because I do not want to look at it, thinking, ‘Is that what I do? Is that what I mean?’ I don’t want to see too much of someone else thinking about what I try to be because, God knows, I could then start doing it."
