best friend tag questions list

One of the most popular tags on YouTube is the best friend tag. Why? Because it’s only natural to want to introduce your best friend to your audience. But even if your friend is the most entertaining person in the world, you still need good questions to make sure your YouTube video is going to be interesting. That’s why, in this article, I put together a list of 77 questions for the best friend tag.

How Does The Best Friend Tag Work?


In the best friend tag, you and your best friend answer questions about each other and your friendship. Let’s take, for example, the question, “What’s your best friend’s favorite song?” Both you and your friend would guess the other person’s favorite song. Then you reveal what your actual favorite song is.

Of course, you can play this tag differently. Maybe you want only one person to answer questions, for example. You can get plenty of inspiration by watching other YouTubers’ best friend tag videos.
