Social media has now spread to every corner of the world. Every generation is doing something unique to stay in trend. Especially when it comes to TikTok, new trends pop up every day and some are too hilarious to be taken seriously. For instance, the latest "I remember when I lost my mind" trend has people cringing over their past when they were desperately trying to impress a crush. With Stephen Kramer Glickman's Gustavo Rocque version of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" song playing in the background, people reminisced about their young and crazy times when they "lost their minds."

This trend caught up speed late this May and the embarrassing extent to which people went to grab their crushes' attention was crazy. For instance, a lifestyle content creator, Arlynie (@arlynieweenie), couldn't help but wince at what she did when her crush said he liked "girls that cosplay." Cut to an older clip, the woman had her face covered in blue paint and a pair of long ears attached to portray the character, King Julien, from the "Madagascar" animated movie. Just because her crush liked girls who cosplay, the woman put on a comical show, which years later she felt embarrassed about. "I was expecting Sailor Moon or something, but King Julien?" quipped @yourmommymakima. "This was not supposed to leave the vault," joked @tiktoktmz2.5

29-year-old Craig Broderick (@craigandbay) also hopped onto this trend and revealed a cringe video. In his case, his crush was a fan of singer Selena Gomez. So, the man created a musical video featuring himself and some friends, dramatically dancing to "A Year Without Rain." While the look on his face said how embarrassed he was for doing this, he also added in the caption, "Still scars me to this day." @rarebeauty commented, "Please tell me this worked." added, "The Bieber hair and Aeropostale shirt just make this so much better. Very 2010 of you!"

If you think the above two instances were awkward enough, then popular influencer Haley's (@haleyybaylee) version of this trend is sure to leave you in stitches. It turns out that the influencer tried to get a boy's attention by pretending to like football. "The boy I had a crush on said he only liked girls that watch football. So I posted this," her text overlay read. In the clipping from the past, we can see that she had used cringeworthy filters that were quite a fad back then. "Want to know what I'm doing today? This. Sitting on my couch. Because it's football Sunday and I'm gonna sit here and watch football," she says. Currently, the influencer can't even look at the lengths she went to impress her crush.

Lisa (@ligorbunova), a Toronto-based marketing worker, revealed her version of the trend and it's absolutely amusing. In Lisa's case, her crush was someone who didn't get girls' obsession over flowers and according to him, flowers were "superficial." So, Lisa desperately wanted to show him she shared the same perspective too. She revealed a glimpse of what appears to be an Instagram story from the past and it showed Lisa standing on the rocks by the sea and throwing a bouquet into the water. "Flowers are so overrated," the text overlay in that story read. "It’s so specific. You might as well have tagged him," @captainchambs joked about Lisa's desperate efforts. "I think he probably got the message," said @sarasmurff.

A lot of people have been sharing their take on the trend and adding a dash of humor, one clip at a time. With millions and millions of views, each clip offers a unique anecdote about that person's life, amusing enough to make viewers laugh.
