f you spend any time swiping the For You page, you've likely seen the long, recognizable face of Nobody Sausage. Nobody Sausage, while active on most social platforms, found viral fame as a virtual influencer on TikTok, pushing an impressive 5.5M+ fans.
With each groovy dance move and trend-tapping post, this friendly sausage's following reaches new heights (as is the name of the game on TikTok). Here's a 2020 litmus test for you: If the premise of a dancing celebrity sausage confuses you, you may be disconnected from the Gen-Z wavelength. In all, the Nobody Sausage strategy embodies what it means to produce, direct, and grow an engaging, persona-based media presence in 2020.
I had the rare opportunity to sit down and learn more about Nobody Sausage, and explore what the future holds for this unique virtual influencer. Let’s meet!
It's so great to speak with you, Nobody Sausage! With 5.5M+ fans, you are grinding at the TikTok game. What does a typical day in your life look like as a content creator?
I start my day slow—I do my daily meditation and yoga practice. After that, I go sit down with my sketchbook and get some creative ideas. I also check TikTok to see what's trending at the moment. The rest of the day, I enjoy time with my friends. Gaming and watching movies (especially anime) are other big hobbies of mine!
What a life! For anyone trying to grow a presence on TikTok, what is your main piece of advice?
My most important advice is to have fun while creating content, to make your inner child happy. When my inner child is cheerful and excited, I know I'm in the right place.
So many top TikTok creators use dance as a form of expression. Which TikTok influencer would you love to dance with?
My answer wouldn't surprise you: I would love to dance with Charli, Addison, and Just Maiko. They are doing a great job in dancing and they have such good charisma.
I would love to, too! What's your favorite song to dance to?
I love 80s music a lot. I loved creating a video on Thriller by Michael Jackson, but I had a great time creating the WAP dance. That was so much fun to dance to!
Of all the TikToks you have made, what's your favorite?
When I started my TikTok account, I did the Savage dance, which I thought was so much fun.
But, I guess my favorite video ever is, again, the WAP dance, as I think it's hilarious to see me doing this funny dance.
I can attest: It's hilarious. What ultimate value do you want to bring your fans?
I love to bring happiness, love, and high vibration to other people on a daily basis. Especially in these difficult times, bringing the energy up is so important—giving high vibration of love to each other. I hope to bring open-mindedness to other people by showing that every person can love themselves by just being their true selves.
Great mission! How do you draw inspiration when coming up with a new TikTok?
It's probably a mix between what's trending on TikTok and what's alive in myself at that moment. Sometimes, I put my own touch on a TikTok trend and let my mind run free on ideas.
What content do you enjoy the most on TikTok? What do you like about it?
I like to see my artsy friends doing amazing work on TikTok. Each creator has their own vibe and sets a different mood. Some are funny, some are cool, some are cute. I love to see everyone being creative!
How has growing 5.5M+ followers in such a short period of time affected your social life?
My life hasn't changed much, as I still do the same stuff that makes me happy. I like to spend time with my friends and family. I'm lucky enough to live in a beautiful, sunny place, so being outside is always a pleasure.
Do you plan to stick to dance videos, or do you have other plans?
I love to dance, but I'm planning to bring in some new friends and tell stories with them. I want to reach more people to bring love and happiness to them, even more than I do now. I'm also investing in new cameras and lighting to create even better content.
Lastly, for those who aren't entirely sure—who are you, Nobody Sausage?
I'm not defined by any labels—I have an open mind and heart for everything and everyone. I'm here to bring light and happiness to others. :)
Thank you, Nobody Sausage!
