It seems that the TikTok dictionary always has new entries and is continuously accepting new words in their vast video realm. But for today’s word, some might already be familiar with it, especially if they always frequent other social networking sites like Reddit. Nevertheless, it is always great to make sure that we are using the words in the right context.
We are going to take a look at the meaning of “caught in 4k” and how it is used.
What does ‘caught in 4k’ mean?
Are you familiar with cameras? Or maybe do you like watching your movies and shows in high definition? Then chances are, you know the 4K quality.
That is basically what “caught in 4k” refers to— catching someone’s behavior or reaction in a very clear view through the use of videos during a particular situation.
It is very similar to the English idiom “caught red-handed” which also refers to someone who was caught in the act of doing something.
How is ‘caught in 4k’ usually used in TikTok?
Some users say that someone is “caught in 4k” during storytime videos where they want to show proof of something interesting that happened. But most people usually use the hashtag for prank videos.
The “hey lol” sound was created by TikTok user @khaleel and the sound basically plays the intro beats to P*rnHub’s website. Users now try to see and catch in 4k whether people would recognize the sound and how fast they would react to it.
One of the most liked videos using the sound is from TikTok user @nathandammier where a younger boy “reacted” to the sound the second it was played.
Try using the sound and find out if you have friends who will be caught in 4k!
