Not all heroes wear capes, and Conservative Commentator Matt Walsh is no exception.
The Daily Wire podcast host actually spent time watching the most cringe-inducing, the most annoying, and the creepiest Tik Tok videos of the year.
VIEWER DISCRETION ADVIZED: You WILL lose brain cells watching these videos along with Matt Walsh.
TikTok is Chinese-run app that allows anyone with a phone and a little bit of time the opportunity to achieve fame and notoriety.
Unfortunately, this has led to an entire generation doing anything and everything they can to get the temporary spotlight shone on them.
This is where the trends involving licking ice cream in the grocery store, snorting condoms, eating Tide Pods, branding one’s self with the kitchen stove, and a slew of other things that could only be considered idiotic, at best, found popularity.
What is interesting about Tik Tok, however, is that the app is run and owned by China a company based in Beijing, and yet China’s version is very different from what the rest of the world gets.
In China, the promoted videos involve young people who demonstrate talent, intelligence, or patriotism. You might come across a young person conducting a science experiment that can be done at home or demonstrating their talent with a musical instrument. Their version is called Douyin.
Though TikTok and Douyin are both owned by the same company, it would seem that China is acutely aware of the influence each app is having on the younger generations.
In China, you have kids wanting to grow up to be in the STEM fields while in the rest of the world, kids want to grow up to be TikTok influencers.
Imagine what the world is going to look like in another 50 years.
