It seems that almost everyone is on TikTok, especially when the Movement Control Order (MCO) was first announced in Malaysia.
Besides the younger demographic, giant corporations and brands have also joined in the trendy app to appeal to their customers, and that includes Mydin Malaysia.
Owner becomes viral sensation
Over the weekend, Mydin Malaysia’s managing director Datuk Wira (Dr.) Haji Ameer Ali Mydin went viral on Twitter after he appeared in several TikTok videos.
The first video that went viral was of him attempting the now trending #WipeItDown challenge.
Malaysians praised Ameer for moving with the times by joining TikTok and also for being ‘sporting’ enough to star in the videos.
Others found the videos amusing and were also curious which staff member managed to convince them to join TikTok; and he or she deserves a raise for suggesting the idea to Ameer.
A few other videos that have attracted attention are the ones where he promotes chicken eggs and Hari Raya outfits sold in Mydin.
Mydin Malaysia’s TikTok account has so far garnered over 10,000 followers and over 53,000 likes to date.
Can’t wait to see what other videos Mydin will produce next!
