Moona is a Russian TikTok user who has kicked off quite an insane amount of interest on her channel, using the Multiple Freeze Frame effect. This allows people to pose in different positions across four quadrants on the screen, creating one image. Quite a few people chose to use it to create Superman poses, as if they were flying through the sky, Christopher Reeve style. But Moona, after a bit of experimentation, created an "accidental on purpose" image for a Supergirl pose.
Superman may be losing his cape, but Supergirl is gaining something. And for her poses, Moona has amassed 66.7 million plays on TikTok and 9.7 million likes, and 585,600 followers. My own usually get around 200 views if I'm lucky.

You can also see the first version of this pose without the supersuit that has slightly fewer likes and views… as well as one with Supergirl giving her a third leg instead, and a more recent one with a Squid Game Supergirl – because why not mash up those hashtags as well?

As of October 2020, TikTok surpassed over 2 billion mobile downloads worldwide. It has also popularised trends such as lip synching, sea shanties, and duets that allow users to add their own video to an existing video with the original content's audio. Popular figures who got their start on TikTok include Loren Gray, Baby Ariel, Kristen Hancher, Zach King, Lisa and Lena, Jacob Sartorius and . And recently The New York Times reported that viral TikTok videos by young people relating the emotional impact of books on them, tagged with the label "BookTok", significantly drove sales of literature.
