You need a hug meme

The You Need a Hug meme involves couples where the boyfriend jumps on their girlfriend’s back.

The trend went viral because of its unexpectedness.

Instead of the girlfriend jumping on their boyfriend’s back, it’s the other way around.

Many TikTok couples taking part in the trend include girlfriends who are much smaller than their boyfriends.

What’s surprising is that they can hold their boyfriend’s weight on their back—which requires a significant amount of strength to accomplish.

The trend is about showing how smooth and effortless a guy can get on their girl’s back—as though they are defying gravity.
