As TikTok has exploded in popularity, the video platform has evolved from a benign place to share 15-second dances into a lawless wasteland of dangerous stunts engineered to go viral. Well, that’s at least what it’s become for Irish agricultural workers.
Some Irish TikTokers have recently drawn criticism for engaging in reckless behavior using agricultural machinery, RTÉ Ireland reports. Their stunts include driving a quad up a steep hill, standing on the drawbar of a tractor-trailer being driven on a public road, and sitting in the bucket of a digger swinging at high speed.
