Lalala vs. Okokok, also known as La La La vs. Ok Ok Ok or Lalala vs. OkayOkayOkay, refers to a TikTok trend and personality quiz in which creators use Tyler, the Creator's song "See You Again" to label themselves, celebrities and fictional characters with either "Lalala" or "Okokok" in reference to the song's adlibs. Lalala people vs. Okokok people became a notable "vibe check" on the app, used to identify the dichotomy between best friends, shipping couples and real-life romantic partners, among other duos. A Lalala person (or Lalala girl) vs. an Okokok person (or Okokok girl) was mainly differentiated via extrovert vs. introvert comparisons.
On March 15th, 2023, TikToker @nevon1nonly posted an original animation showing two characters singing the adlibs of Tyler, the Creator's 2018 song "See You Again" featuring Kali Uchis. TikToker @nevon1nonly proclaimed in their caption, "theres two types of people listening to 'see you again,'" and over the course of one month, the video gained roughly 4.5 million plays and 692,000 likes (shown below).
