‘You do not recognize the bodies in the water’ explained
In short, the ‘you do not recognize the bodies in the water’ TikTok refers to the cognitohazardous effect, SCP-2316.
The phrase ‘you do not recognize the bodies in the water’ repeats over and over again, to avoid the viewer falling victim to the effect. The idea is that an individual will see a floating corpse in a body of water that appears to look like someone they know, causing more interaction with the water. It’s all very spooky stuff.
If you’re seeing these SCP videos on your FYP, it’s because there is actually a whole community of SCP-knowers on TikTok. User @site_42 is a prime example of a SCP-TikToker, often making content that describes different SCP objects.
