FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Tallahassee, and the Saga of a Florida Man who goes by just the name Gator.
Now, it’s been said that if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
I don’t know if that’s true. I think you’re still working, and you’re still probably working pretty hard, even if you really, really, really like what it is you do.
But if you do something you love, you may find a way to make it go viral and make some decent money at the same time.
And that’s what’s going on here with this guy Gator out of Tallahassee.
His son was on TikTok. First of all, Gator was not on any social media at all. Nothing as recently as two years ago.
Not even Myspace.
Well, his son was on TikTok, posted a couple of silly videos, and they did well, like getting close to a million views.
So he thought, you know what? Maybe there’s something to this.
So he got the app himself and started posting these videos. He said instead of just posting somewhat random clips, he started posting home repair videos after a suggestion from a friend.
I’ve watched some of these. They’re really good, and they’re things that make you go, wow, how come I never thought of that?
Homeowners need D-I-Y help
Well, at any rate, the comments section took off to the point where people are asking, they’re making requests on his TikTok page – Hey, can you help me? How to replace a toilet? I need help replacing a screen. What about this sink problem? What about that problem?
Well, he said it’s gone crazy to the point where he has over two and a half million followers on TikTok and close to 45 million likes.
And not only that, but Gator is making money with this. He’s selling t shirts. He has a dryer vent cleaning kit. He has his own Amazon page. He’s got a whole different bunch of things going on.
Do something you love. You’ll never work a day in your life. I don’t know about that, but I know he’s gone viral. I know he’s making money.
If you want to check out his videos, and they’re very good. They’re very funny. You can do a search for TikTok Gator.
And remember, if it’s not on TikTok, it didn’t really happen.
Here’s one example of a hack for a problem door hinge.
