WhatsAppborea refers to a WhatsApp themed parody of Hyperborea that proclaims WhatsApp supremacy and WhatsApp world dominance in which every human deletes Facebook Messenger (among other messaging apps like Snapchat) and only uses WhatsApp. The trend started on YouTube in 2021, spreading to TikTok in early 2023 and inspiring many Hyperborean-esque images and edits that used the green WhatsApp logo. The trend also became associated with the phrase "Save WhatsApp."
On May 20th, 2021, YouTuber「Matghast56」 posted a video called "Whatsapp Drip Hyperborea TNO Velimir" that showed a Hyberborean-themed character with WhatsApp logo emblems on his hands. The video gained roughly 56,700 views and 3,200 likes in two years (shown below). It is currently the first known piece of media to reference WhatsAppborea.
The meme gained prominent spread in early 2023 on TikTok, following a video uploaded by TikToker @unsupervizedschizoid420 on March 23rd, 2023, which used YouTuber「Matghast56」's visual and gained roughly 50,300 plays and 7,500 likes in 18 days (shown below, left). The concept was replicated by more creators on the app, such as TikToker @apeivouna.av who uploaded a video on March 29th, 2023, that proclaimed "Save WhatsApp" and gained roughly 106,500 plays and 14,400 likes in 12 days (shown below, right).
