I've Never Done Anything Like This Before / I'm Not A Cop refers to a viral video of a child predator that's caught meeting up with a 15-year-old boy for explicit reasons. In the video, the predator begs and pleads with the woman behind the camera who then tells him that she's not a cop. He reacts to this statement by drawing back in a display of unworried disbelief. This reaction is what popularized the video on TikTok in December 2021, where users exploited the audio that had a Vine thud sound added to it. The original video was posted to Facebook in late 2019.


The original video was uploaded on October 11th, 2019, on Facebook[1] by the activist group ACE Alliance Against Childhood Exploitation who also have a YouTube [2] page. Even though the original video has since been deleted, the original date was confirmed through Facebook DM with the Know Your Meme team. The woman behind the camera's name is Dani, and she's been featured in local Florida news for her work, like in an aritcle posted by Jacksonville-based website First Coast News[3] in November 2020.

On December 8th, 2021, the video was first reposted to TikTok[4] by user @igetbox who referenced the character Lester from GTA V, who the man in the video resembles. The TikTok (shown below) amassed roughly 6.6 million plays and 1.6 million likes over five days' time.



Two days later, on December 10th, 2021, TikToker[5] @tooffarie also reposted the video but a shorter, six-second version of it that added in a Vine thud sound effect. The TikTok (shown below) received roughly 3.2 million plays and 772,000 likes over the course of three days.


Using the audio from the video above, TikTokers started exploiting the sound, reenacting the scene but giving it a different context. This was started on December 11th, 2021, when TikTokers like @jorran2[6] posted videos (shown below, left). His received roughly 1.6 million plays and 316,700 likes in two days' time. Other TikTokers like @theweeknd.com[7] also posted videos. Her video (shown below, right) received roughly 365,000 plays and 85,500 likes, also over two days.


More and more TikTokers posted videos with the sound going into the rest of December. Reuploads of the TikTok made their way to YouTube[8] as well, starting on December 12th.
