Where does VSCO dog come from?


VSCO dog was inspired by the summer 2019 trend of the VSCO girl. A VSCO girl is a generally insulting term for a young, usually white woman who posts trendy pictures of herself edited on the app VSCO.

VSCO dog videos involve dressing up a pet dog in the manner of a stereotypical VSCO girl, such as scrunchies, shell necklaces, Hydro Flask water containers, and an overall beach-y, 1990s-style aesthetic.

VSCO dog videos started appearing on the social app TikTok in August 2019. One early VSCO Dog video was posted by TikTok user @puplolaa on August 13, and it depicts a Maltipoo named Lola wearing items associated with VSCO girls as its owner sings about VSCO girls: 

More videos were uploaded, and the trend took off. By the end of September 2019, the hashtag #VSCOdog had over 1.5 million views on TikTok, with one of the most popular videos earning over 41,000 likes. VSCO dog videos also started appearing on YouTube by early September.

Who uses VSCO dog?

Like VSCO girl videos, VSCO dog videos are often posted as a joke to make fun of the VSCO girl trend. Many videos feature dogs that are obviously (and hilariously) confused or uncooperative. Also like VSCO girl videos, VSCO dog videos are posted directly on TikTok and other social media.
