30 Trends That Are On Their Way To Being Extinct, According To Reddit Users

Published 3 years ago

It seems like nowadays trends come and go so fast, you can hardly keep up. However, there are certain ones that have been lingering for quite some time now – and some people can’t wait for them to die off. Especially since some of them are ridiculously silly and annoying.

A few days ago, one Reddit user sparked a heated debate after asking people to share “What’s cool now, but probably won’t be in 5 years?”. The user’s thread received over 31k comments with people trying to guess some of the trends that are bound to die off in upcoming years, and I’m pretty sure some of them are already one foot out the door. From silly life hacks to TikTok itself, see check out some of the predictions in the gallery below!

Probably not going to happen, but I really wish influencers won’t be “cool” anymore.

Gigantic drawn on eyebrows.

A lot of the stuff I see people doing on TikTok seems like the kinda thing you’d be embarrassed about in a few years

Overly-processed Instagram photos. Especially in the context of makeup and skincare.

Having the covid vaccine. Eventually it’ll be as commonplace as a flu vaccine.

Hopefully those fake pointy acrylic nails

Hopefully Facebook. I never thought it would kill myspace and MySpace reminds me of better times when I think of how sh*tty Facebook handled the last 4 years

Current plastic surgery trends to meet the current IG standards. I fear for a lot of people who have had BBLs and facial surgery that the look will become outdated and permanently associated with late 2010’s and early 2020’s, kind of how like there are plastic surgery trends associated with the 90s/2000s.

Hopefully the stupid “hacks” that people are coming up with. That’s not a hack

Humongous butt injections.

Vaping, I hope.

People posting pictures of a PS5 they just bought and expecting the rest of us to care.

Youtube prank videos

Well some youtube videos in general.

Daenerys and Khaleesi as girls names.

Zoom calls. I don’t wanna go back to the office, but I can’t take five more years of these..

Everything Supreme. The s***** print text hoodies, the overpriced hats and $100 Tshirts, all of it

5 day work week

Lip fillers.

That stupid yee yee a** haircut that all the teenage boys are rocking. The one with the short sides and mop top rat’s nest on top.

Corporations trying to be weird and relatable on Twitter. Wish it would die out now

The latest iPhone.

Brazilian Butt Lifts .. I feel like it will not age well. A lot of plastic surgeries collapse over time or have complications as it degrades

Subscribing to multiple streaming platforms.

Instagram is going to be an online shopping mall, far removed from the cool micro-blogging site it used to be.


Galaxy print is probably going to go the way of the bowling alley carpet patterns we used to wear on our clothes in the 90s. It’ll come back ironically in 10 years

Funko Pops. They’re the Beanie Babies of the ’20s.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
