Hype House, the physical location of a new content creator collective, is a Spanish-style mansion perched at the top of a hill on a gated street in Los Angeles. It has a palatial backyard, a pool and enormous kitchen, dining and living quarters.

Four of the group’s 19 members live in the house full time; several others keep rooms to crash in when they are in town. And all day long, a stream of influential young internet stars come by to pay homage to the new guard.

Hype House was formed in December by some of TikTok’s most talked-about stars. They introduced themselves with a Backstreet Boys-esque photo shoot, and within minutes #hypehouse began trending; videos including the hashtag #hypehouse have accrued nearly 100 million views on TikTok.

The group handle that distributes their content surpassed 3 million followers on TikTok in just over a week and a half. In the days leading up to Christmas it was all anyone under the age of 18 on TikTok seemed to be talking about.

[q]Hype House was the brainchild of Chase Hudson, 17, a TikTok star with more than eight million followers who is known online as Lilhuddy,[q]

Ugh. No wonder!

So how do you get rich off this ish. Maybe ILX can put together a bankable collective.

you generally have to be 15-20 to get rich off this ish. no ilxor stands a chance unless they exploit their own 15-20-year-old children (or I guess cute cats/toddlers) or play up the "crazy out-of-touch old person who hilarious misunderstands the way tiktok works" angle

I love not being on instagram but some of my friends end up sending me screenshots of some instagram posts and force feeding me it that way.

"the action in this video could result in serious injury" disclaimer really sends this over the top

In leaked documents, TikTok told moderators to suppress posts by “ugly” people and the poor to attract new users. https://t.co/AJxbmIzsKJ

Parents let their kids on this shit? Insane!

Makes you absolutely despair for gen z.

The idea of gen z being super-woke also seems ultra dumb when you see how popular pizzagate content is on the app

i’m not on this app and am only exposed to the very funny things, which are very funny

the hell is “triller”

spotify is promoting a 'triller' playlist which appears to be songs that feature heavily on..... this app, called 'triller', which is a tiktok clone

confused because i expected the playlist to have something to do with southern rap, where the word 'trill' comes from i.e. trill recognize trill etc

further confused because this app appears to literally be a tiktok clone - why do we need two of the same thing?? why are celebrities on trill?? str8 up $$$ for promo i guess?

us gov sanctioned clone with magapproval

So as far as I can tell, this kind of TikTok is mostly about cute white kids dancing and mouthing the n-word?

...and yet it has 4.5 million views. that's gotta add up to a couple of bucks for the house's inhabitants.
