It was a simple enough TikTok video. Just two guys on a beach in Salisbury, N. Yeah, We're pretty cool guys, we like hanging out and this park here, we're really into movies, video games We'd really like to be your friend cuz it's just the two of us now. It'd be awesome to get a third person or a fourth or a fifth.
The view counts climbed and climbed, racking up more than a million views within days on TikTok alone, and another two million and counting after viewers began sharing it to Twitter. Not all fun and memes: What's the trouble with TikTok? In a social media landscape where so much is filtered and fake and where trolls are always lying in wait, the video was a refreshing standout: unretouched, unrehearsed and unflinchingly candid.
Gogan thinks the video's unembellished simplicity is part of why it resonated with so many viewers. When it was shared on Twitter, someone called it "the most depressing s--t I've ever seen. Gogan has watched it all unfold, taking energy from the positive comments and letting the negative ones slide.
For years, Gogan had a "pretty big group of friends," but over time, they went their separate ways. Jeffrey, the video's silent co-star and Gogan's friend since Grade 4, has been the one constant.
Asked for Jeffrey's last name, Gogan noted he "prefers to keep his full name private, so it's not my place to say. There have been some darker chapters in Gogan's life, and Jeffrey was always there for him, he said. Jeffrey was the only one that really stuck by me. Now that COVID restrictions are loosening up, Gogan said he and Jeffrey are both looking forward to expanding their group of friends, with a lot of help from that viral video.
Gogan estimates he's heard back from to people in the area since he posted the video on June 11, and others are still contacting him. He's working on organizing a barbecue as an initial meetup, and the plan is to have regular get-togethers going forward. You can reach her at marie. Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
