Full Interview w/ Ashe_Media
With the recent obsession with Tik Tok brewing from COVID forcing us to stay inside our homes, many people started posting videos for the hell of it and gaining million of views and tens-of-thousands of followers from doing so. Ashe_Media (Liam) is one of the guys who has reached the status 'Tik Tok Famous'. He's been recognised on the streets from his 15 second videos reviewing cake mixes from Woolworths, and has had articles posted about said cake mix reviews. Matt and Mel had the pleasure of interview him for the post recent episode on Online Influencers, and asked him about his life since "blowing up" on Tik Tok, and what he thinks about the online community.
