TikTok star Zach King hilariously demonstrates how museum art will be displayed in times of Covid-19
While few parts of the world are slowly returning to some sort of normalcy, others are still dealing with the raging COVID-19 pandemic. Wearing masks, disinfecting and social distancing have become the new norm. TikTok star and internet personality Zach King has once again amused internet users with a creative new offering that shows how museums would be amid the ongoing pandemic. The 31-year-old has a cult following on the social media circuits and was recently confirmed to have the most followers on TikTok. King has over 58.2 million on the platform alone.
King’s new music video shows how the work of famous artists would be displayed in museums this year. The 24-second clip shared on his official Twitter account shows him taking on the role of a museum staff member. “Alright everyone, the museum is getting into Covid compliance. You must wear masks at all times,” the 24-second video can be heard saying as he hands out face masks to all of the characters in the famous paintings displayed on the wall.” This is van Gogh,” he adds, giving the Dutch painter a mask. The music video finally ends with King switching to the “The Last Supper” setting and saying, “Guy, come on, there is no indoor dining” (social distancing) as the characters in the painting begin to exit. It ends with King saying, “Judas, I’m looking at you”.
