Move over Gen Z, because the fashionably late millennials have finally arrived at the TikTok party! And boy, are they making an entrance. In the latest intergenerational showdown on the internet, Gen Z has taken it upon themselves to hilariously roast their millennial counterparts.

Introducing… “millennial core”! Picture this: back-to-back clips featuring cringeworthy and oh-so-cliché traits that are often associated with the millennial generation. We’re talking about using outdated slang, making over-the-top facial expressions, and even speaking in an exaggerated, silly voice. It’s like watching a train wreck, only it’s so entertaining, you can’t look away!

Each of these videos follows a similar style, seamlessly jumping from one clip to another while the melancholy and reflective track “QKThr” by Aphex Twin plays gracefully in the background. It’s a cinematic masterpiece, truly capturing the essence of the millennial experience.

Now, we can’t pinpoint exactly when this trend started, but in October, these videos exploded onto the scene, garnering millions of views and leaving viewers in stitches. One particular TikToker, known as @jimmycocoapuffs, unleashed a hilarious compilation of clips on October 15. The video featured a woman ecstatically referring to Taylor Swift as a “smol girl” and another person shamelessly geeking out over her IHOP order. The result? A whopping 3.5 million views and over 7,000 comments, most of them discussing their secondhand embarrassment for the poor souls in the video.

But wait, the millennials aren’t about to take this lying down! In early November, a self-proclaimed millennial going by the handle @mindingmytime fired back. In a genius move, she created a video showcasing a montage of these “millennial core” clips, cleverly interweaved with footage of herself openly mocking the trend. Talk about meta! Some commenters couldn’t help but point out the irony, as she unintentionally created a “millennial core” video of her own. She sassily responded to these comments, clearly amused by the turn of events.

You know you’ve struck a nerve when the younger generation starts dissecting your fashion choices and humor. Gen Z comedian Mark Gaetano has wholeheartedly embraced this trend, even going viral multiple times in the past for satirizing millennials. On November 20, he joined the “core” movement, releasing his own hilariously accurate compilation of millennial parodies, garnering a cool 2.4 million views.

But it’s not all fun and games. Comedian and self-proclaimed “elder millennial” Iliza Shlesinger recently made waves on TikTok, calling for Gen Z and millennials to put their differences aside and unite. While her message received a positive response, the popularity of “millennial core” hints that we still have a long way to go before intergenerational harmony reigns supreme on TikTok.

So, whether you’re sporting skinny jeans, side-parts, or self-deprecating humor, embrace your millennial vibes! Don’t be afraid to roast, be roasted, and join in on the laughter. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll all be dancing to the same tune… or TikTok video. #MillennialCore
