TikToker Shares ‘Manic Pixie Dream Girl’ She Used To Go, It Goes Viral And Others Join The Trend
Manic Pixie Dream Girl is defined as a “quirky” and “unusual” female character, but really exists only for the growth of the male protagonist. Think about it.
Recently, the term resurfaced after TikToker’s Amy Lovatt asked everyone Share the “Most Manic Pixie Dream Girl Thing” they used to do.
Every time she went to a party, she would bring a little thing (a particular dessert). “Look at me, I’m so quirky,” Amy said in her viral video.
More people joined the trend to share their own MPDG moments.
