Jiddana Dusturia who lives in the regency of Banyuwangi in the Indonesian province of East Java, mistakenly posted footage of herself sneezing on TikTok.

The footage shows the student, who is known by friends as Grina, sitting down to address the camera before suddenly sneezing instead.
Acknowledging the failure, Jiddana stopped filming and made plans to redo the video at a later time.
However before she had a chance, the clip was mistakenly shared with her 762,000 followers, and was watched by millions of TikTok users around the world.
Speaking about the accident, she said: ‘I left the [sneeze] video in the drafts, and then I accidentally pressed upload, and at that time I didn’t realise that it had been uploaded to my TikTok.’
Commenters pointed out the video went viral despite not having captions or hashtags because it appeared on the video-sharing app’s For You Page.

Jiddana added: ‘The next day my group chats were flooded [by people] saying that [my video] had entered FYP!’
The student told the news site Tribun that the clip was actually a blooper from another video she posted, adding that her nose started to itch as soon as she started filming.
Many viewers wrote comments in Indonesian on Jiddana’s viral post.
Roughly translated, one person commented: ‘Can you just sneeze through my FYP’
Laughing, another added: ‘Many like sneezing’
Jiddana responded a day later with a video lip-syncing to the song from her original post.
She captioned the post: ‘Introducing Grina, the kid who has been on FYP because she sneezed.’
