Google Giggles is an imaginary social media website and short-form video platform from Google that's imagined to be a place where outdated and cringy memes and videos are shared by its outlandishly normie userbase. Google Giggles became a concept on TikTok in early 2023, originally a part of a spam comment that followed the phrasal template "Bro Got Banned From Google Giggles," which was used for low-quality videos on the app that felt like earlier days of the internet (specifically the 2000s). Google Giggles memes were similar to those that made fun of YouTube Shorts users.


On February 22nd, 2023, TikToker[1] @kai_brisk posted a video that was designed to feel like old TikTok, using the older TikTok sound "I Really Gotta Hold On"[2] and a low-quality Android camera with a face distortion filter. The video was also in response to a comment that read, "bro stuck in 2016☠️☠️." In two months, the video gained roughly 5.9 million plays and 804,800 likes (shown below).

On February 22nd, 2023, TikToker[3] @ivano0_m posted a comment beneath the video reading, "Bro got banned from google giggles," gaining roughly 20,500 likes in two months (shown below). The comment resulted in further usage of the phrase "Google Giggles," additionally spawning variants like Twitch Tickles, Reddit Rumbles and Twitter Teehees, among others.
