"The Perfect Girl" is a 2015 song by artist Mareux that is a cover of a 1987 song by The Cure. In 2021, the song and its sped-up version gained major virality on TikTok, regaining popularity in early 2022 in video caption memes, particularly those using scenes from "based" films such as American Psycho and Nightcrawler.


On April 21st, 2015, LA-based music producer Mareux (Aryan Ashtiani) released his single "The Perfect Girl," a coldwave cover of a 1987 song by The Cure. The song accumulated over 3.5 million views on Soundcloud[1] and 433,000 views on YouTube[2] in seven years. In 2021, Mareux released the song on Spotify,[3] where it accumulated over 30 million streams in one year.

The song did not achieve massive virality until July 23rd, 2021, when TikToker[4] @electraviolence.c used the song in a fancam of actress Nikki Reed, which gained over 256,400 views and 22,900 likes in six months (shown below). For example, a tutorial video by TikToker[6] jannestwelve received over 1.6 million views and 231,000 likes in three months (shown below, center).


The upload by @elctraviolence.c gained further prominence in late October 2021 after several TikToks[5][6][7] using it went viral (examples shown below).

In the following months, more viral TikToks[7] using the song were uploaded to the app. On January 7th, 2021, a Vibing Cat gimmick Twitter[8] account @cadancingg posted the song, with the meme gaining over 50,200 views, 760 retweets and 2,500 likes (shown below).
