Khaby Lame, a 22-year-old is now the most-followed person on TikTok. Khaby Lame is a well-known TikTok and Instagram celebrity that merely attempts overly difficult hacks and then demonstrates a more direct and basic approach to performing the same hacks. In Lame's videos, a user often demonstrates a life hack that is extremely tough or is resolved in a convoluted way. 

Lame continues in his video to demonstrate how the same exploit may be resolved in a much simpler and more commonplace manner. For instance, Lame would just unlock the car doors and take off his shirt instead of using scissors to cut his trapped t-shirt in a car door.

In every TikTok video or Instagram reel where he solves a hack, Lame makes his signature comedic gesture—extending his arms and rolling his eyes—to demonstrate the obvious solution to the same tricky exploit. His early videos were mostly in Italian or his native tongue. But it was his mute motions that set Lame on the path to becoming a household name.
