About

Steven Here… I'm Looking For Fifi refers to a viral video captured on a Ring doorbell camera that shows a guy named Steven (or Stephen) at night, looking for a woman named Fifi. The homeowner said there was no Fifi to which Steven said, "I knew this was a rip-off." The original video was posted to Facebook and YouTube in early 2023, purportedly taken in the city of Detroit, Michigan in the area of Southfield and Fort St. It soon spread to TikTok and elsewhere in early 2023, causing memes and reactions en masse, similar to "open na noor."

When turned away at the door, he said, "I knew this was a rip-off," among other statements. Over the course of two months, the post received roughly 59,000 views and 1,100 reactions. On March 8th, 2023, the video was posted to YouTube[2] by CrimeInTheD, where it gained roughly 3 million views and 104,000 likes in the same time period (shown below).
