Exploring the Absurdity of TikTok's Corecore Meme Art In recent years, social media has allowed for a diverse range of meme art to emerge. From classic “Skull Trump” memes to the ever-popular cottagecore aesthetic, it seems that there’s something for everyone on the internet. The latest iteration of absurdist meme art is known as corecore, and it has taken off in a big way on TikTok.  At its core (pun intended), corecore is all about taking existing aesthetics and trends and remixing them into something new and unexpected. A typical example might be a mashup between pastel goth fashion and K-pop style music videos – an unlikely combination but one that can still produce some interesting results if done correctly!  This type of absurdity isn't exclusive to TikTok – many other platforms have their own versions too. Twitter is full of people playing around with surrealistic images or videos, while Instagram users often use irony or humor to poke fun at themselves or their subjects.  Despite this widespread use of absurdity across social media sites, corecore's popularity on TikTok appears unmatched at present. It seems that users are drawn in by its unique blend of irreverence and creativity – not only does it provide endless entertainment but also encourages people to think outside the box when creating content.  Whether you're a fan or not, it's impossible to deny that corecode has become one of the most popular forms of meme art thanks to its rise on TikTok over the last few months. However long its reign lasts remains unknown - until then though, we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled for whatever comes next!
