In fact, TikTok is so huge that it’s expected to surpass YouTube – the number one video-sharing platform in the world – in average user time consumption this year.

“Time is an illusion” - Albert Einstein | I traveled to London to shoot this video and as I shot, the first few tales weren’t feeling right, it’s because tourists were still taking photos of #bigben , but that’s when I had an idea. We had a crowd of fans around me as I was shooting. So we asked them to be in the background of the video. So a lot of the people behind me are actually fans on the bridge and when they react to the clock being gone. And bonus, that Bus name in the background was NOT planned! Crazy
