  • 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.
