There seems to be a new obsession on TikTok every other day, and the latest centers around what folks are simply calling “Couch Guy.”
In the clip, which has been viewed 32 million views, TikToker laurenzarras surprises her boyfriend Robbie at a college party. He is sitting on a couch surrounded by a bunch of girls and she runs right up to him to give him a hug. But fellow TikTokers were less than impressd with Robbie's reaction, with many noting that Robbie didn’t exactly seem happy to see her.
In fact, folks on TikTok are basically picking apart the video, with many insisting it set off a ton of red flags. Others suggest laurenzarras is "in denial” about her relationship, which prompted her to comment “Breaks my heart that people can watch a special moment and bring so much negativity,” adding, “Please think before you assume anything about my relationship.” Robbie also commented in a separate video telling viewers to not be a “parasocial creep” and to “go get some fresh air.”
But folks still aren’t convinced that this is a solid relationship,
- “Girl, you trying to convince us or yourself?” asked one viewer.
- Another added, “We’re all here to talk when you’re ready.”
- She did get at least some support, with one person sharing, “Honestly, I’ve been with my bf for 7 years and I feel like he would give exact same reaction as yours did. you’re strong for not letting this get to u.”
- And regardless of what happens with this relationship, it’s turning into hours of fun on TikTok, with “Couch Guy” now becoming the latest trend, with tons of folks sharing parody versions of the clip.
