Kaley Cuoco and her billionaire heir husband Karl Cook have just admitted to having zero idea what TikTok is. The “Big Bang Theory” actress updated her Instagram stories this week with a video from the $12 million Hidden Hills mansion she and Karl have just moved into – while the video set out to deliver cozy vibes as the 2018-married couple snuggled up on the couch, it quickly turned into them both admitting that TikTok was beyond them.
Kaley, 34, kicked off by asking Karl if he was “sick” of her yet – the couple’s unconventional marriage has seen them living apart until just a few days ago.
Kaley’s video showed her and Karl filmed in black-and-white as they chilled out – Kaley was rocking her trademark low-key look, appearing in a dark shirt with her hair in a bun. The selfie video saw Kaley ask:
“Are you sick of me yet?”
While Karl didn’t answer the question, he did ask one.
“What’s a TikTok, honey? I’ve been seeing people posting that…”
“I don’t know, but you need a breath mint,” Kaley replied, pulling a face.
“YOU NEED A FACE MINT,” Karl fired back, with Kaley then audibly laughing.
Breath and face mints aside, the couple continued to discuss the social media platform giant – they really seemed out of the loop.
“I actually don’t know what TikTok is, should we attempt it?” the sitcom star asked her husband.
“No. No, no,” Karl replied, adding: “I don’t need another app on my phone.”
“Its’ not an app,” Kaley replied, with Karl then saying that he just couldn’t keep up with “the kids these days” after his wife called him “old-fashioned.”
The two then smooched in for a kiss.
TikTok might be a wtf situation for Kaley and Karl, but the rest of the celebrity world seems fully on-board with the Chinese video-sharing social networking service. February 2019 saw TikTok hit one billion downloads, with everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez to Justin Bieber and wife Hailey Baldwin using it.
Just recently, 26-year-old “Yummy” singer Justin posted a viral TikTok video with model wife Hailey – the two are self-distancing in Canada on account of the novel coronavirus.
Kaley isn’t completely out of the loop, though. The blonde now regularly hosts her “A Cup of Cuoco” Instagram series – the impromptu videos showing Kaley enjoying her first coffee of the day generally come unannounced, but footage of the star discussing her sleep, beloved nightgowns, and random musings prove popular – as does the makeup-free finish and what can sometimes be wet hair or a bathrobe.
“A Cup of Cuoco” has seen Kaley horrified that Karl washes his hair with Dove soap, it’s seen her discuss the coronavirus, and, perhaps most lucrative for Kaley, it’s seen her recently unveiled as the new celebrity face of coffee giant Starbucks.
