The Genshin effect continues to be the driving force shaping the TikTok trend. This time, an augmented reality (AR) filter of the pyro character, Klee, worked. The filter is named “AR Klee“Used in videos more than 257,000 times with simple TikToks showing the character dancing attracted up to 6.4 million views.
The style of these videos is pretty simple: most joke that it’s weird to have a little girl dance in a particular scenario. In the filter, Klee dances a little shuffling and she can be brought into a variety of realistic environments. Filters are usually paired with a particular sound where a baby voice sings a remix of the electronic song, “AstronomiaBy Vicetone and Tony Igy. There are no lyrics so the tenor sings the main melody while saying “deo deo deooooo.” For example, this video shows Klee dancing on the dashboard of a car.
The trend is so big that even mainstream celebrities are starting to embrace it. Canadian comedian and television personality Howie Mandel posted a dance video with her.
In The Genshin effect, Klee knows how to create an entrance. The young child is known by other characters for being an expert in fireworks and often getting into trouble with his pack horses. Now she can bring a bit of her chaos to the internet.
Klee isn’t the first The Genshin effect character for great success on video sharing app. Moments from the game quietly refueling trends on TikTok that are becoming mainstream. An example includes a dialogue from a character named Scaramouche mocking another character who ended up being used in more than 198,000 thousand TikToks. And a character editing video Eula danced after Akon “Bananza” is viewed more than 18.9 million times. And then there’s my favorite story: A joke about Genshin favorite characters The New York Mets went viral on the app.
