Turbulence has been trending on TikTok for a while with many wondering what it is and others not knowing how to do it. You’ve probably come across a turbulence video or two and wondered to yourself what was going on, but you’re not alone.
You may think the turbulence trend has something to do with air travel but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In the video, he was doing the Thug Shake, a popular dance that was trending at the time. Watch the now-viral video below.
Many viewers speculated where the sound could be coming from. Then it was revealed in later videos that he had been slapping his genitals against his thighs while naked from the waist down. The turbulence video has since spurred numerous memes and recreations like the one below.
How to do the turbulence on TikTok
In order to do the turbulence TikTok trend there are a few things you must know. First off, you have to be completely naked from the waist down. Either that or you should be wearing some really loose trousers so there is enough room for the ‘slap’.
Secondly, there’s a reason why the shots in turbulence videos only show the upper body. Therefore, you should position your camera in such a way that your privates don’t peek through the shot. It’s not as hard as it sounds, just be attentive while recording so as not to exceed a certain distance from your camera.
