Exploring the Viral ‘Can You Watch My Boss’ Trend on TikTok

Some colleagues are participating in TikTok’s ‘can you watch my boss’ challenge, and the outcome has left viewers in fits of laughter.

The ‘can you watch my boss’ trend on TikTok gained popularity in June. Although it resulted in some uncomfortable moments between colleagues, it also created a lighthearted environment for co-workers to engage in playful interactions.

To participate in the viral trend, TikTokers place their phones in front of their bosses while at work. While the camera is rolling, the users ask their viewers if they can “watch my boss”for a brief moment.

In that moment, the TikToker steps away briefly, leaving their bosses to figure out a way to occupy themselves and pass the time.

The boss of Mercedes-AMG F1 shared a post in which he could be seen smirking during an awkward silence. When his colleague returned, he questioned them, “Have you lost your mind?”

Some internet users playfully suggested that the boss was monitoring the viewers instead of the usual dynamic, as the boss confidently maintained eye contact with the camera.

In a different post posted by ky_jo94, her boss started teasing her, calling her “crazy”and “insane.”

“She reassured, “There’s no need for anyone to keep an eye on me, I’m simply carrying out my duties.”She then teasingly scolded her colleague for causing her premature gray hair with all of her playful antics.”
