As I mentioned above, since the invention of the keyboard, there has always been competition over the space key.
Office workers especially liked to make spacebar challenges in their spare time.
But thanks to TikTok this contest has become popular again.
Users shoot videos using Championxiii's song.
They are running the Spacebar counter along with the word "Splash" in the song. There are maybe thousands of videos made this way.
If you are wondering how many times you will press the space key in 1 minute, you can test it in the vehicle above.
The first results may not come out very well. But keep working.
Believe in Progress, not luck. Tiktok users also perform this challenge for 15 days.
And they share the result with their followers. As you can imagine, they improve day by day.
So what is the history of this trend? It all started with a video of a user named airidasgustas.
Airidas is not an influencer with millions of followers. It has even below average followers.
However, according to Tik Tok data, he started this viral challenge trend. You can see the first video shot from this link.
The Spacebar Counter game spread all over the world in a short time.
It's a simple concept. Start pressing Space as soon as you start the timer.
Be as fast as possible until 1 minute is up. And share your results. 600 thousand people liked the results shared by popular_editz1.
Some users pushed the limits by breaking awesome records.
However, in a short time, even videos about tricks. That can be applied to get successful results started to be published.
Thousands of people are still shooting videos about Spacebar today.
Some users are doing this challenge not with their fingers but with their tongues.
This user was also someone who didn't have many followers.
But the video he shot with his tongue was watched millions of times.
I think Andy Warhol was right. One day everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.
This famous quote by Warhol, one of the iconic figures in popular culture, really accurately describes the time we live in now.
And when this word was spoken, there was no strong media outside of television.
It's really impressive.
