James Charles’ latest TikTok video confuses fans
Taking to the popular video-sharing platform on Tuesday (18 January), James Charles posted a video with the trending phrase “And why aren’t you in uniform” as he changed from comfy clothes into a Euphoria-inspired look.
The video also included this text: “When ur on the way out the door but then you remember that you’re in Euphoria S2.”
The post seems to have left some fans confused as they took to the comments wondering whether the YouTuber was set to feature in the HBO show. One fan wrote: “Omg, you are in Euphoria?” While a second added: “More reason to watch Euphoria.”
While some were unsure over the meaning of the TikTok, others in the comments were quick to say the video was part of a trend as they linked it to other posts under the same audio.

Is James Charles in Euphoria?
The YouTuber doesn’t have a credit for Euphoria on his IMDb so it seems his latest video is related to a trend rather than a possible feature in the show.
The “And why aren’t you in uniform” soundbyte originates from a Spongebob episode and was added to TikTok as an audio in February 2020.
Similar to James’ video, users recording posts to the soundbyte walk into the shot wearing casual attire and, after the sound says, “And why aren’t you in uniform?” walk back out and return in a more put-together look.
Following the release of Euphoria’s second season, the trend has evolved as some have linked it to the style, looks and fashion the characters wear in the HBO show.
The YouTuber is clearly a fan of the series as this isn’t the only Euphoria-related trend he has participated in on TikTok. In 2020, he created an inspired make-up look and, more than a year later, the video is at the top of Euphoria’s hashtag with 5.8 million likes:
