“I had downloaded the TikTok app and I was just scrolling, doing my thing,” he tells the publication, on Rosa’s genesis. “I wasn’t really thinking of making my own content. And then I just got inspired by myself, my childhood growing up and, like you said, everybody knows this Rosa character and I felt that she had been forgotten about… So once I brought her back, everybody was just so familiar with her and that’s why I felt she did really well.”
