TikTok, in the third-quarter of 2023 has pretty much turned into:

“look at this cool thing that I have, by the way you can buy it to my TikTok shop”

“this amazing thing I’m showing you is available in my TikTok shop”

“have you ever tried to do this mundane task and realize that you needed to complicate it a little bit more? You can too, just buy this thing on my TikTok shop”
