Flirting with danger.
In a shocking turn of events, Business Insider is reporting that Tik Tok users have set a “thirst trap” for Japan-by-way-of-Huntington-Beach’s Kanoa Igarashi after his silver medal winning performance at the Tokyo Olympics and that he has fallen directly in.
@fatasswhitegirl took to the popular social media platform and wrote, “Thank you japan for putting surfing in the olympics,” before cutting to images of Igarashi holding his surfboard, with his silver medal etc.
Igarashi, very excited, responded to @fatasswhitegirl by reposting her video as a “duet” adding his own self saying, “Hey that guy looks familiar,” and also, “Just doing my morning scroll on tik tok and found myself,” including a laughing emoji and a crying laughing emoji.
Not knowing what a “duet,” I asked my eight-year-old daughter who told me, “It’s a video but you press duet and then it splits the two videos from yours and the other person’s. Like someone does a dance then a dance then a dance then a dance but that’s not a duet, that’s a chain.”
“Thirst traps,” in any case may be deadly but also could maybe lead to true love. BeachGrit will be diligent in keeping up with the progress of Igarashi and @fatasswhitegirl’s relationship.
More as the story develops.
