Prolly Not refers to jokes and memes made in reference to a viral video on TikTok by user @sethshyrock in July 2022 in which he acts out an interaction between a distraught boyfriend and a doctor. The TikToker can be seen asking about the well-being of his girlfriend and asking if she's going to "make it," to which the doctor responds with "prolly not," with @sethshyrock then promptly breaking into the Taylor Swift song "Don't Blame Me." The TikToker's decision to give the doctor such a casual cadence led to other users making jokes about the kind of doctor that might say "prolly not" when asking about a patient.


Sometime in early July 2022, TikToker[1] @sethshyrock posted a POV-style video showing him tearfully asking the doctor, "doc… is she gonna make it?" to which he shows the doctor responding with, "Prolly not." The post gathered an unknown number of views and likes before it was deleted (repost shown below).
