Hidden Talent of Mine? Making Babies Laugh, also known as Guy Lunges at Camera, refers to a viral TikTok by user itsmacdoogle in which he tells that making babies laugh is his hidden talent, and then proceeds to repeatedly lunge at the screen while maintaining a frightening grimace. Following the viral spread of the video, it gained popularity in GIF captions and other memes.


On August 11th, 2020, TikTok[1] user macdoogle (formerly macpeepeepoopoo) posted a humorous video in which he claimed that making babies laugh was his hidden talent, challenging parent users to duet with him. In the second part of the video, macdoogle , with water splashed upon his face as to give him an unhealthy look, makes a frightening grimace and repeatedly lunges at the camera, as if to scare a baby who might be watching the video. The post received over 10.7 million views, 1.6 million likes and 125,200 shares in three months (shown below).
