Please Watch These Chaotic TikToks About Hanging Out With Your Favourite Artists

TikTok is no stranger to absurdist humour. The platform is home to weird little frog videos, reimagined Vine culture and, well, whatever this is. But allow me to present to you the cracked edition of self-insert roleplay AUs with these TikToks by Kevin Atwater (@kevinatwater). 

Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to hangout with your favourite artist? Maybe go to the farmer’s market and pick some berries with Mr. Harry Styles? Adopt a pet at the animal shelter with Billie Eilish? Share a meal with Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj and SZA? Well, these v weird TikToks are just for you.

Essentially, Atwater cuts back and forth between him talking to the camera and carefully edited excerpts from artists’ music, creating incredibly bizarre and stupidly funny skits with the kind of choppy editing that belongs on the internet and in my heart.

In one, the TikTok user goes to the farmer’s market with Harry Styles, only for Styles to get a “Watermelon Sugar” high from eating too many berries, later seen ascending. In another clip, Atwater visits Selena Gomez’s home, before giving her a loaf of bread which she puts in a toaster and burns down her house… and Ariana Grande is there? And then there’s the time he visited the Great Wall of China with Katy Perry, who tells him to “shut up” and throws away a plastic bag, littering but wanting to start again. 

I wasn’t lying when I said they’re fucking weird.

Personally, however, the ones that are the funniest and most chaotic are these totally real moments with Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, SZA and others at restaurants, cafes and on a picnic.
