I Thought I Could Trust You is a video on the Poppy YouTube channel. It is the 186th video of the Poppy era. It was uploaded on April 9th, 2017.


In the video, Charlotte attempts to lie to Plant in order to get money for drugs. She claims that her child is sick and she is trying to raise money for him. Plant responds that though he wishes he could help Charlotte, he cannot, as plants do not use money. This disappoints Charlotte, as she thought Plant was her friend and would help her. She then degrades Plant, saying that he is "just like everyone else" and is "just a plant", therefore would not understand. This inclines Plant to call out Charlotte for saying an expletive to Poppy in the video "I Am Not Sick", which Charlotte denies having said.


Charlotte: Hello Plant. How are you?

Plant: Oh, hey Charlotte. I barely recognized you.

Charlotte: Listen, do you think I could borrow some money?

I am trying to raise money for my son. He is very sick.

Plant: I wish I could help you, but I'm a plant, Charlotte, I don't use money.

Are you okay?

Charlotte: No. I just need money. I thought you were my friend.

I guess you are just like everyone else.

Plant: What is that supposed to mean?

Charlotte: You are just a plant. You won't understand.

Plant: I knew it. You did say "f-[bleep]-ck you" to Poppy, didn't you?

Charlotte: I would never say that to Poppy.

I cannot believe you.

You really don't understand.

I thought we were friends.

I thought I could trust you.


  • Though censored, this is one of only four Poppy videos to contain profanity, not counting any profanity in Poppy's songs. The other videos to contain profanity are "I Am Not Sick", in which Charlotte says the expletive to Poppy that Plant quotes in this video, "What Are You Doing?", where Charlotte says the same expletive to Plant, and "I Invented Tap Dancing", where a man's voice can be heard saying "this is bullshit".
