A Vietnamese TikTok user has proven yet again that not trying too hard sometimes works best on social media.
Effortless TikTok star: Anh Tran Tan has been averaging over a million views per video on his TikTok account for simply staring at the camera with some Vietnamese songs playing in the background.
- Tan started uploading videos on Sept. 17.
- It did not take much time before his videos started attracting viewers.
- With a blank TikTok bio, the account has gathered over 380,000 followers and more than 5.6 million likes so far.
- As of this writing, his most viewed video has 27 million views and counting.
Secret to stardom: Apart from his unconventional technique in video production, not much is known about this latest social media sensation.
- There is barely any movement in his videos except for some blinking and the occasional shifts in poses.
- There is little variety as well with him either standing up, lying on a hammock or in bed.
- To spice things up a bit, he sometimes records himself shirtless.
- There are also clips where you can barely see him.
- Regardless of what he does, his videos are attracting hundreds of thousands of views at minimum.
NextShark previously reported about an Indonesian YouTuber with a similar shtick and rose to fame by posting a video of himself doing nothing for over two hours. That video by Muhammad Didit now has over four million views.
