I admit it: I don’t have TikTok and whatever goes on there has so far completely passed by me. But if there is one video that would actually draw me into it, it’s the one by the beautiful Lola. Earlier this month one of her TikTok videos went viral on her Twitter that I want to share with you here as it’s pure genius because not only is it very accurate, it’s also quite hilarious. In a little montage, she performs the different dance styles that you will typically see at techno parties, not only here in Berlin but I assume worldwide, including the “basic 2 step”, the “roly poly”, the “march” and the “berghain veteran sway”. I think everyone who has been to a techno party will recognize these moves easily, and real techno kids will most likely recognize themselves here. The interesting thing is, she is doing it with such a straight face (as is typical at a rave) that you can’t tell if it’s a mockery or pure education. It’s whatever you decide what it is for you. We absolutely love it and hope to bump into this girl once the clubs reopen…
UPDATE: Unfortunately Lola decided to go private with all her accounts.
