Fellow TikTok addicts, meet Ricky. He's also known as @iiamdriven on the app. Ricky is 20-years-old and based out of Benton Harbor, Michigan. His @iiamdriven profile currently has over 237,300 followers.
One way he has gained popularity is by jumping on TikTok trends. His "People who aren't going to be single in 2020 has been watched nearly 4 million times. He has multiple videos that have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. However, the videos that like the most on his page may not be high in views, but they're relatable. His video about Meijer or Meijers is what did it for me. It's some thing so simple...yet it drives me crazy. That video has been viewed nearly 10,000 times.
Oddly enough he has a series of videos telling people to stop coming to Michigan. This one has 140.5 thousand views.
This "stop coming to Michigan" video has over 787.4 thousand views. I love the line, "what are you gonna do in Michigan? Look at rocks?"
