A TikTok user has gone viral with bizarre videos of deserted streets that he claims were filmed ‘in 2027’.
The man, from Valencia, Spain, posted a series of clips of empty shopping centres, deserted beaches and quiet roads that were filmed during lockdown – but he claims are signs of a dystopian future.
Fans praised his creativity and said the short videos are ‘creepy’ and ‘eerie’. Other gullible viewers were mocked after they commented to say it ‘looks real’.
A man has gone viral on TikTok with a video of deserted streets, shopping malls and beaches that he claims he’s transmitting from the future after ‘waking up in 2027’
The man, from Valencia, Spain, shared the bizarre claim that he had ‘woken up in hospital in February 2027’ and has ‘yet to see another human being’
Setting up the premise for his prank, he wrote: ‘I just woke up in a hospital and I don’t know what could have happened. Today is February 13, 2027 and I am alone in the city.’
Doubling down on his claims, Javier added: ‘I am reading you all now, it is very cold in the street. I have tried to where I lived and I did not have keys to enter, what would you do in my situation?’
He added: ‘I want to clarify that I am in 2027 but everything I see and where it is stayed in 2021. I think I woke up in 2027 as a parallel reality. And I just remembered my name.’
As well as videos of deserted roads, the trickster features clips of technology glitches including a television struggling to air programmes and lights flickering in buildings.
Fans were quick to point out issues he failed to spot, including footprints in the sand.
Others said many cities are similarly deserted thanks to lockdown rules and Covid-19 restrictions.
Going along with Javier’s ruse, one user set him a fictional ‘mission’ to complete, writing jokingly: ‘Your mission is to find the cause of what happened to become aware of those of us who are living in 2021 to see if we can remedy the situation.’
