The TikToker now has over 60 million followers on the social media platform

Forget the life hack videos that flood your news feed, the TikTok star Khaby Lame has showed his followers how to really live their best life by calling out illogical ways of doing things and TikTokers are loving it.

Khaby Lame has showcased his skills as a life hack fact-checker and has gained over 60 million followers on the social media platform. Lame is now the most followed Italian TikToker on the planet.

He shares videos of himself testing tips that people have uploaded to the internet, only to reveal that there is much easier way of doing every activity.

The social media sensation was born in Senegal in western Africa, and has been raised in Chivasso, Italy, as reported by Brobible.

Here are some of our favourite ‘life hacks’ by Lame.

In the TikTok video, Lame comically shows a man jumping into a swimming pool onto a towel and a pillow. Lame then shares footage of himself carefully getting onto an inflatable lilo at the edge of the pool, funnily enough not getting wet at all.

In another video, a woman shows followers how to take rapidly take loo roll out from inside the roll by removing the cardboard tube. It was an interesting technique to say the least.

The clip then focuses on Khaby, who looks unimpressed and slightly confused. He then comically demonstrates how everyone has been using loo roll for their entire life.

His TikTok video has received 24 million likes and has been viewed over 210 million times.

In another comic clip, a strong man attempts to cut an apple in half by using his strength to cut the fruit with his hands. It takes a lot of effort and a fair amount of time.

The video then cuts to Lame, who slices an apple in half with a knife in seconds. Take a look.
