If It Has a Screen the Lorax Can Be Seen refers to a trend on TikTok in which the 2012 animated movie The Lorax is shown playing on unconventional devices with screens, such as calculators and pregnancy tests, under the catchphrase, "If it has a screen the Lorax can be seen." The trend is set to the song "Let It Grow" from the same movie and began in late April 2023, continuing through early May. The memes are similar to the It Runs Doom trend.


On April 28th, 2023, TikToker[1] @acergur posted a video captioned, "If it has a screen, the lorax can be seen πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ" set to a distorted version of "Let It Grow" from The Lorax showing the film playing on six devices at once, including two Nintendo Switches, garnering over 846,000 views in three days (shown below). This is the earliest known video to use the phrase.
