You Know What It Never Was? That Serious or It Was Never That Serious is a viral TikTok audio and video used by TikTokers in lip-dub videos to express, both genuinely and ironically, how something seemingly stressful ended up being "not that serious." The video containing the audio was uploaded to TikTok in November 2022 and went viral over the following months. In January 2023, Stranger Things actor Noah Schnapp notably used the audio to come out as gay.


On November 7th, 2022, TikToker[1] @princessazula0 posted a video where she says, "You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, will never be that serious." The video gained over 860,000 views in two months (shown below).

The audio is most often used in ironic and genuine lip-dub videos about things being less serious than they may have seemed (prominent examples from December 2022 shown below).
