Cringey moments from the past are the most powerful memories we all have, it doesn't matter if something happened twenty years ago, once you remember it you immediately start cringing and hating yourself for doing whatever you did back in that time. It's even worse when someone else reminds you of it, it triples the embarrassment and reminds you that you can't escape from your past.
Since people share everything on the internet, so why not share the cringy stuff too and bond over it with other people. That's exactly what TikTok user Michaelslagel did, he shared an embarrassing moment from his past, and soon after, people followed the trend.
