A Starbucks Barista In Qatar Is Going Viral And The Trend Is Getting Out Of Hand

Farah Makhlouf

Trends… they could be a harmless form of self-expression, art or a simple tactic to increase views (no shame). But on the flip side, some trends could do more harm than good.

A Starbucks barista is now under the spotlight after a video of him got over 5.1 million views on TikTok

The first video was posted by content creator bassel ghazal and it was posted on April 31. Many don’t see the trend in this but basically, the trend is looking at someone with ‘admiration’ with this specific song in the background.

Bassel posted and reposted 8 additional TikToks with Santosh and since then more people hopped on the odd bandwagon! Many have been to the branch to film Santosh too.

People’s ‘For You Page’ is literally filled with the barista

People have noticed that Santosh looks visibly uncomfortable in these videos

It may be time to put the trend to bed!
