TikTok is all about bizarre new trends, and this time it is the Grandfather Clock sound that is taking the entertainment platform by storm. Generally, the arrival of new TV shows gives birth to many new trends on TikTok. If you are not a Stranger Things fan or have never indulged in the series, there are chances that you might be confused by seeing this trend on TikTok.

Going gaga over the sound taken from Netflix’s popular show, Stranger Things, people record videos of grandfather clocks with Stranger Things music playing in the background.

Many users have also made videos of themselves pretending to hear the sound of the clock. These users then act terrified in these trending videos.


What is the Grandfather Clock trend all about?

Most of the users making these videos have obviously seen the show and are intrigued by the concept. But for those who haven’t seen the show and have no idea what the entire grandfather clock fiasco is all about, this is a popular scene from the Netflix show Stranger Things.

In the world of Stranger Things, hearing the sound of the grandfather clock means that you are haunted by Vecna, who is the villain of the show. Hearing the sound and being haunted by Vecna on the show means a brutal death.

It's not just TikTok, the internet is also flooded with memes about hearing the Clock.

Stranger Things, too, made the most of the opportunity and joked about the clocks:
