How do you express your attraction to someone? Is it by gestures? By giving them gifts, or by telling them? People on the internet always find new ways to show that they like someone. The chair trend is one of them. Popularly known as the I Need a Chair trend, it allows you to say you like someone while testing your flexibility.
Each video plays like a dialogue between the creator and a love interest. The latter says, “I need a chair.” Then, the former responds by contorting their body into a makeshift chair. This action implies that the person they like can use them as a chair. The sound typically used for this trend is a sped-up version of Pony by Ginuwine.

How to join the chair TikTok trend
All you need to do the chair TikTok trend is a wall and your body. Read the tips below to get the best possible results:
- Wear comfortable clothes beforehand, then stand about a foot from the wall.
- Next, you should place both hands where your feet are and get into the starting position as if to do a front flip.
- Then, somersault forward and lay both legs flat against the wall.
- Finally, move your hips up or down to get your desired arch. Use your hands for support, and let your legs slide as you adjust your hips.
