A “fake smile at high school graduation’ video has gone viral. It shows a young woman named Mary McMillan flashes what looks like a brief, fake smile as she accepts her diploma. It quickly vanishes into a pout, which some have deemed symbolic of how a lot of people feel.
That’s especially true for the generation of high school kids who had to come of age during a pandemic.
She captioned the video, “”The moment I lived for #homechef #NotOneThing #quarantine #lol #ew #highechoolmusical.” The video was first shared in 2020; MacMillan is now a college student in Delaware. It went viral again in June 2021.
The video was posted to TikTok by Mary MacMillan, who goes by the handle @marymacmillan.
It shows her in a white dress walking forward to get her dsploma before making what looks like a forced smile for the cameras. It quickly disappears. You can watch the TikTok video below. The lyrics, “been that b****, still that b****,” play on the screen.

MacMillan clearly wasn’t a fan of the quarantine. She captioned another video, “When ur parents ask why you cry everyday you’re home and want to go back to school so bad.”
She also posts videos of her wearing new boots, with her boyfriend, and rising horses.
Her Instagram page indicates she’s in college, though. “university of delaware equestrian,” she wrote. The photos are private. On Facebook, she wrote that she studies at the University of Delaware and is from Odessa, Delaware.
Why did the video strike people as so funny – or poignant? People also weighed in on Twitter. “Much of life is about pretending—social convention often dictates we smile through gritted teeth and mask our emotions to appease others,” explained one person about why the video has resonated so much with people.
MacMillan has 51,000 followers on her TikTok page.
