Sorry I couldn't find the reaction video on TikTok proper, I don't actually understand how to find anything on TikTok and I don't have an account.

Er, I meant to add inveterbrates to this post too.
Q: if you could rename any bug, which one and what would you call it?

A: replace any “lesser” or “common” in bug names with “special little”

special little Eastern bumblebee (Bombus impatiens)
special little appleworm (Grapholita prunivora)
special little brown scorpion (Isometrus maculatus)

This is adorable.

I love this sort of thing (the Ratatouille musical was another huge favorite), but TikTok never shows me any of it and I end up learning about them weeks later. How do I get TikTok's algorithm to know that I want to see this stuff (especially if I can see the collabs while they're still happening) when I never get served anything like it in the first place?

Mchelly, I think the algorithm may learn if you search for and like this kind of thing a few times. You may have to like any collaborative video for it to pick up that this is what you want to see.
Here's the route to frog Tik Tok.
I also miss out on all the fun stuff as my main account is all low viewer count political stuff, with occasional cooking. I have only myself to blame. And the algorithm.
Frankly, I am sick of the algorithm failing to show me any but three of the accounts I follow. I don't understand how that works.
