The video is now everywhere, with celebrities such as Trevor Noah weighing in on the clip.
The Daily Show host poked fun at the video, and said Robbie’s delayed reaction shouldn’t be the red flag — rather, the “damning evidence” is the guitar on the floor beside him, as Noah reckons he might have been using it to serenade the girl beside him.
Lauren’s video now has over 60 million views and it has inspired countless body language analysis videos and parodies, with big brands such as airline Ryanair making their own version of the clip.
Here are ten of the best parodies of couch guy on TikTok:
Lauren also uploaded a video where she asked her family what they think of couch boy and they all gave him a glowing review.
Despite trying to convince her audience otherwise, TikTokers don’t seem to be able to let it go.
On every video she makes now, Lauren receives countless comments based on the couch boy video. She can’t even escape the criticism on videos that have nothing to do with her love life. In a recent food haul where she shows all the Halloween goodies she got at the shop, the top comment with almost 60,000 likes reads: “Comfort food for the breakup.”
Deciding to at least make hay while the sun shines, Lauren created “couch guy” t-shirts that people can purchase. We hope she makes enough money from the shirts to take Robbie off on a romantic trip – because this young couple could definitely do with a break.
