His early videos showed him dancing and watching video games, and were mostly filmed in Italian and included Italian subtitles.
He rose to popularity with his video responses in the form of TikTok’s “duet” and “stitch” features to videos depicting overly complicated “life hacks”, in which he performs the same task in a simple way, without saying anything.
