There’s no denying the cultural influence of social media platform TikTok, which has taken over our collective lives since 2020.

With people turning to TikTok amid the first lockdown for entertainment and challenges, our obsession with the platform has only grown.

The international aspect of TikTok has also meant that our favourite Aussie creators are now transcending borders, reaching For You feeds across the globe.

2021’s Year on Tik Tok report has collated Australia’s top For You faves, all of which reflect our unique sense of humour – cheeky, self-deprecating, and a little bit silly!

Here are some of the best Aussie Tik Toks from 2021, as chosen by Tik Tok itself!


Answer @im_siowei the clumsiest canine of 2021 😂

Winnie the Cattle Dog

Cute, clumsy red cattle dog Winnie stole our hearts this year, with owner April going viral with a number of videos featuring her best four-legged friend. Winnie’s clumsy moments were her most viral video this year.


Surely this is the funniest thing you’ve seen all day

Brittany Skye Shackleton

This video, captioned ‘Surely this is the funniest thing you’ve seen all day’, will never fail to brighten our days. We’d love to know what happened next, and how long it took for the nail got removed from Brittany’s nostril.


Cleaned my BFs game boy thingy! Thank you @geebmouth for showing me how 🥰❤️

Not Erica

We love it! I’m sure many of us out there can relate to the ‘feminine urge’ to destroy their boyfriend’s PlayStation, making Erica a true hero.

Benjy Cartwright

Hey remember that time Starburst released an ad in 2007? And remember that other time it became a viral Internet trend in 2021? We can hardly remember the first one either, but thankfully the Internet has not let us forget. Benjy Cartwright has hopped on the bandwagon here, showing us that culturally relevant dance.


Caught this gem while filming our first Vlog today, little dude gets very excited about his daily snack 😂 #bird #australia #fyp #whatdoing #hamlet

And the PetTok love continues with Bridget’s bird, who gets very excited for his daily snack. What doing?

Millie Ford

And of course, we couldn’t have an Aussie #fyp roundup without mentioning Millie. Millie had us reminiscing on high school while she spread some Aussie-specific joy. She won Australia’s Tik Tok Creator of the Year Award a few weeks ago, and we can definitely see why!

We can’t wait to see more from these creators in 2022. Make sure you’re also following Girlfriend on Tik Tok for our behind the scenes fun, makeup hacks, and articles!
