#TikTokTuesday – 27 June

Tuesdays just got a whole lot more exciting! Take a look at the top TikTok videos that are trending in South Africa, Africa, and the rest of the world:

South Africa: Zebra – Uh, Hippo Crossing

@claudiawieman Just a hippo wandering around St. Lucia on a Saturday night 🦛🇿🇦 #hippo #southafrica #zuidafrika #nijlpaard #hippos #stlucia #fyp @joannauniwersal99 ♬ Big And Chunky – will.i.am

St Lucia in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province is apparently the go-to place if you want to witness hippos in person – and they weren’t kidding! As you can see, this pair of hippos was casually taking a stroll across the road in town.

What’s next? Lions? Elephants? CHEETAHS? Who knows!

Africa: Caught in 4K(enya)

@domey_lite 😂😂😂😂😂#kenyantiktok🇰🇪 #kenya #kenyantiktok #nairobitiktokers🇰🇪 #fyp ♬ original sound – NICAZOID

Okay, not quite in 4k, but caught nonetheless! This Kenyan bigwig “accidentally” copped a feel during a photo-op – the lady seemed to take it in her stride, so kudos to her. Still, awkward is awkward, so we hope they managed to clear the air afterwards!

The World: How Trains “Actually” Work

@johnymuenster How trains actually work!🚆 #fyp #bodybuilding #gym #muscle ♬ Harry Potter – The Intermezzo Orchestra

Okay, bro, we know you want to show off that physique, but you don’t have to mess around with MOVING TRAINS to do so!

@johnymuenster of Germany comedically shows off his efforts (and bod) in “stopping” and “pushing” a train, much to the bemusement (and admiration?) of nearby onlookers.
