A video of a group of influencers making a dance video goes viral, but not because of their dance moves.
There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes editing that helps create the perfect content. Influencers are known to shamelessly record their videos on busy sidewalks, bustling malls and public spaces.
TikTok and Instagram account @influencersinthewild curates user-submitted videos that show content creators warts and all. The clips are made by non-influential people who spot influencers creating content in public.
Instagrammers @andrewswantoon and @hazelkatecryan submitted a video to the account. In the footage, a group of influencers had placed a phone on the duo’s window sill from outside. They appeared to be recording a dance video. But the pack of girls had no idea that @andrewswantoon and @hazelkatecryan were watching from inside the house.
“Do it do it!” @hazelkatecryan cheered on @andrewswantoon as he held the drawstring for blinds in his hand. “Do it quickly!”
He raised the blinds, and as soon as he did, the group of girls looked absolutely mortified. They all ran in different directions. But one of them quickly rushed back to grab the phone and leave.
The caption for the TikTok video was a bit too precise, “They scattered like cockroaches when you turn on the lights.” This also seemed to ring true for TikTokers, who watched the video 27.3 million times.
“I thought they were birds,” wrote one user.
“How are they doing so fast?” Another joked.
“Did anyone else think they were a bunch of chickens?” someone asked.
