TikTok users are adding a creative flair to their mundane activities like having lunch by recording their moments in the Wes Anderson trend.
Do you want to turn your life into a Wes Anderson film? Users on TikTok are currently obsessed with doing this. TikTok is filled with videos of people’s everyday activities recorded in a highly stylized manner mimicking cinematic eccentricity of Anderson.
Known for his unique visual style, Anderson is an American filmmaker, who is critically acclaimed for multiple movies like Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. He has won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for his cinematic contributions. His latest movie Asteroid City is set to release in June 2023.
There is no doubt that netizens are spending hours compiling and editing these short videos. However, the end videos are quite aesthetically pleasing and garnering millions of views. Thus, the long editing time is definitely worth it.
This trend started through Ava Willims, who recorded her train journey from Connecticut to New York. Anyone who has seen Anderson’s movies will quickly recognize his style while watching the 24-second video posted by William.
All the videos related to this trend start with the caption ‘You better not be acting like you’re in a Wes Anderson film when I get there.’ This is followed by a written title to tell the time and location. In Williams’ video, this title read. “The first train. Along the Shoreline East. To Grand Central Terminal. 6:45 AM.”

Williams said that while making the video she was a bit tired and sad because she did not spend much time with her family. However, she said, “I didn’t want to end on a sour note.” Thus, she ended up making this video and fuelling a beautiful and creative trend on TikTok.
While watching aesthetic clips of ordinary moments, you can hear the song Obituary by Alexandre Despalt in the background. This song was part of Anderson’s movie ‘The French Dispatch’.
