Why Nick Miller From New Girl is a TikTok Sensation

by Hayley Taylor

There’s been a rising number of videos about Nick Miller on TikTok. You heard that right, the plaid wearing roommate from New Girl has become a TikTok sensation. Even Jake Johnson knows about it! Let’s get into the reasons why Nick Miller keeps popping up on your For You page.

He’s So Quotable

Nick Miller has many iconic quotes that people like to list. His sarcastic and self-deprecating nature matches the humor of millennials and Gen Z’s who are on TikTok. This includes iconic lines such as, “You treat an outside wound with rubbing alcohol, and you treat an inside wound with drinking alcohol” and “I’m not convinced I know how to read, I’ve just memorized a lot of words.”

The Reenactments are Hysterical

Nick Miller scenes from New Girl are also fun to reenact. This TikTok, in particular, is an uncanny portrayal of the character. We applaud you for your dedication to your craft.

He Appears in TikTok Trends

TikTok “trends” are when people use similar sound bites or video premises in different ways. The most popular scene fans like to remix is his break up poem to Caroline. He wrote an entire book about zombies, so it should be no surprise that he has a way with words.

Nick’s Very Relatable

During quarantine, it’s easy to start imitating Nick Miller. Firstly, we start by sitting around and watching TV all day.

Secondly, we take every chance we can to entertain ourselves. We resort to desperate measures to get some socialization while we social distance.

Also, we can relate to his weird coping mechanisms. People who never exercised before quarantine are doing it now as a way to stay active.

TikTok’s Love For Nick Miller

In addition, people record moments from the show and explain why that scene or quote made them fall in love with Nick. We can’t help but think that Jess lucked out by meeting her soulmate in the room across from her’s. His love for Jess is swoon-worthy.

People also find Nick likable through his awkward dance moves. Without a doubt, he deserves TikTok’s accounts that are dedicated to him when he can dance like this.

Jake Johnson’s Similar Roles

TikTok users have also realized similarities between Jake Johnson’s characters. For example, Nick Miller and Peter B Parker are both loveable yet emotional disasters. We’re glad that Hollywood has discovered Johnson’s sweet spot because it gives us a lot of material to enjoy.

At first, Nick Miller may seem like an unlikely trend on TikTok to non-New Girl fans. But after watching videos like these, everyone can understand why TikTok is obsessed with him.
