Popular video-sharing app TikTok has become one of the few platforms where people/things get viral in no time. The main element that helps people/things to get viral is some kind of unexpected revelation, just like catching someone cheating.
The same thing happened when well-known internet personality Serena Kerrigan took to her TikTok account to share a video that made everyone think of the iPhone’s “live-photo” feature. As per Kerrigan, the video shows the moment she caught her boyfriend cheating on her.
The TikTok video was posted on Sunday, May 9, 2021, and it blew up in no matter of time. As of this writing, the video has already accumulated 11.9 million views, 2.3 million likes, 17.1 thousand comments, and 42.2 thousand shares.
With the “Oh No” song by Kreepa set as the background song, Serena added an on-screen caption that read “When the guy you're dating says he misses you but then you click the live photo.” The on-screen caption was accompanied by a skull emoji. The video was further captioned "Looks like you have some company" with the eyes emoji attached.

As learned on the internet, “live-photo” is the kind of feature found on Apple iOS that captures moments before and after an image is captured, creating a short clip that a user can play by holding their finger on the mobile screen while reviewing the image.
The same incident happened with Serena Kerrigan when a man whom she was dating sent her a picture saying that he misses her. However, little did the man knew about the “live-photo” feature and that he was going to be exposed.
As seen on the TikTok video shared by Kerrigan, she initially only saw a bed in which a stuffed animal was laying in front of pillows. But, as soon as she looked into the “live-photo” version, she saw a girl falling onto the bed.
After the New York City native posted the video on TikTok, those who watched it were shocked. Likewise, many of the viewers took to the comment section to give their own views. One TikTok user was so amused by the “live-photo” feature that he wrote, “Always âï¸ click âï¸ the âï¸ live âï¸ photo ð³.”
Another user added, “My jaw dropped faster than she did.” Moreover, a user who already knew about that feature dropped another tip as they wrote, “If you save their live photo you can also check your camera roll for the date, time & place it was taken. Go off ladies.”
Following Kerrigan’s shocking TikTok video, many news outlets contacted her for a comment. However, she is yet to say anything about it. In addition to that, she also has not followed up on the topic on her social media handles.
