Unveiling the TikTok Canon Event Craze! (Hottest Trend)

There is always a new trend circulating on TikTok, and the most recent one making rounds involves people writing "You're my bird."

As part of the trend, users are posting photos of themselves with a friend, partner, family member or loved one along with the writing "you're my bird," as part of a slideshow.

Emotional music also plays in the background, as people swipe to the second image that reads: "You're what?"

For the third and final image in the slideshow, there is a photo of a male sculpture saying “I can’t do this anymore” while a bird replied: “Yes you can.”

The bronze sculpture itself is a small metal bird that is flying and lifting a man off the floor using its two feet to lift him up from his shirt.

So when people say a loved one is "their bird," it means when you're feeling down they are someone who helps you to get back up on your feet.

Oslo-based Norweigan artist Fredrik Raddum is the artist behind the sculpture which is from a 2017 collection called ‘Hacienda Paradise– Utopia Experiment’ displayed at art gallery Galleri Brandstrup.

The sculptures are based on a true story from the 1930s where a group of Europeans left their homes to live on the Galápagos Islands, with the move being described as "The Galápagos Affair," according to My Modern Met.

During this time there were unsolved disappearances on the Galapagos island of Floreana and a documentary was made on the subject back in 2013 titled: "The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden."
