How a Dollar General Employee Went Viral on TikTok
Rachael Stott is a business reporter and editor based in Atlanta.
The first time I heard about TikTok, I watched the video with my son. To be honest, I sat there stunned, with my mouth agape, staring at the screen. The video, which features a woman in a T-shirt and shorts, dancing in the store to music, quickly spread around the world and has now been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
Then, without realizing it, I uploaded the video to my TikTok feed. The result? This woman, who’s never seen a dollar before, has now seen a dollar. The video quickly went viral. My TikTok feed is one of the highest-viewed. It has been seen by millions of people. My TikTok feed has reached 100,000 subscribers in a span of four days.
It’s crazy how quickly something can go viral. In the span of just a few days, the video of this dollar-store employee has gone viral. In fact, it has been watched more than 2.5 million times.
I had no idea it was going to go viral. To be honest, I had no idea what the video would mean to someone thousands of miles away. I was completely amazed. I was shocked that this video would go viral. But now, this video has meant so much to so many people, and that gave me hope that if there are people out there who need hope, then that hope is out there, just waiting to be felt.
You don’t always need the whole story in order to see the whole story. There are many viral videos out there that you just don’t see because they’re not going viral at the moment. Or perhaps you don’t understand the significance of the video until you watch it at a later time when the video goes viral.
