Creators are bringing trends from the Shorts feed to real life with #ShortsIRL

Shorts creators from our YouTube Shorts Community gathered in the Los Angeles and New York YouTube offices a few weeks ago to hang out, create content, and participate in some of our favorite September trends together in an event we called #ShortsIRL!

Check out how to join the trends and some of our favorite content from creators that attended our event below.

How To Participate: Follow along with the choreography outlined in the example Shorts and get creative with your outfit or backdrop.
