As the social media platform TikTok takes teenagers by storm, one organization is making their mark on the app, amassing over 100,000 views in a single week. The Sapphires went viral after posting a short video filmed in the dance room.

For those who may be unaware, TikTok allows its users to post up to a minute-long videos that often feature humor, dancing, crafts and challenges. In this case, the video consisted of a pre-existing audio that declares “you’re the only friend I need” with the team bouncing along to it.

It feels pretty crazy to have so many people from around the world see my video. There were people commenting in a whole other language which was pretty surreal”

— Berry Stevens

“I came up with the idea after I was scrolling through my feed and one of the girls that I follow had a similar TikTok but with only four of her friends, so I thought to myself, ‘I have 37 best friends so it would be so cute to do a TikTok with them,” Sapphire Captain Berry Stevens said. “I also knew that all the girls on Sapphires love TikTok so it was a match made in paradise.”

Since posting, the video has amassed almost 150,000 views, more than 22,200 likes and 232 comments, and can be seen here.
