Man Becomes TikTok Celebrity For Calling Out Rubbish Life Hacks
| Last updated
There aren't many people that deserve more respect than those who call out the internet's worst 'life hacks'.
On that note, let's introduce you to TikToker Khaby Lame.
He's on a mission to mock the unhelpful, unnecessary and downright ridiculous nonsense we see on a daily basis.
Take the below as a prime example, which is Khaby's response to a 'hack' to free yourself if your t-shirt is stuck in a car door - by cutting the t-shirt with a pair of scissors instead of opening the door.
Another clip, which has racked up nearly 40 million views, shows a muscly bloke attempting to crack open an apple with his bare hands.
Cut to Khaby who simply chops through the piece of fruit using the humble knife. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
More about Khaby. For a start his real name is Khabane Lame, he's 21 and from Italy. Very helpfully (for us anyway) he captions his clips in both Italian and English.
According to Brobible, Lame was born in Senegal, western Africa, and raised in Chivasso, Italy. Oh, not forgetting, he's the most followed Italian TikToker. He currently has more than 58 million followers.
Arguably the best bit when it comes to his videos is his expression: a deadpan shrug.
So here are a few other 'hacks' that Khaby makes much, much easier than the original poster suggests.
First up we have someone laying a towel out into a pool before chucking a pillow on top and jumping on. Of course, they're not going to float on this makeshift lilo. Khaby then comes into shot with... a lilo.
Another video, which has over 58 million views, shows someone cutting a toothbrush into bits before hollowing out the inside and making a small hole in the bristly bit.
They then attach a medication syringe (think Calpol, not an actual needle) and fill it with toothpaste so that when the syringe is pushed up the toothpaste will come out at the brush end.
Khaby of course makes more sense of this by holding his toothbrush in one hand before applying the paste with his other hand and brushing his pegs.
You know, like a normal person would without the added drilling hassle.
What a LAD.
