Finally, after three-ish years of being in our lives, TikTok has produced the goods. Dr Karl Kruszelnicki has set himself up an account bringing his outrageously loud shirts and science facts to the app we all get stuck on for hours at a time.
I am absolutely, 100%, without question here for this shit.
With a bio that simply says “an answer looking for a question”, Australia’s favourite weird nerd uncle is basically serving up piping hot knowledge to all the weird-ass science questions people have. It’s essentially his Science Hour segment on Triple J but all the time, and in your phone. Extremely good and wholesome shit.
Sure, he might only have 11 videos up at the time I’m writing this, but let me tell you – they’re all top-shelf shit.
I’m talking wigs, costumes, interpretive dance, himself as his own background, hoon glasses – the lot.
Please just, peep this and tell me it’s not the most delightfully wholesome thing you’ve ever seen.
In the short time since he jumped into TikTok, Dr Karl has already picked up over 100k followers and dealt out some red-hot facts on things like transient bottoms, zombie fish, cubical poos, and the power of copper in killing germs.
Not only does the man have a green screen going for all his extra backgrounds, but this TikTok also shows that he’s got a RING LIGHT as well. We truly stan a Content King.
He’s taking on all your science questions – like why does your piss go flouro after a Berocca, or why does soy milk make my guts bloat so much I look like I’m pregnant – so if you’ve got a barnburner in the back of your head, you can flick him a message and maybe he’ll crack that nut.
But without further ado, here are the best Dr Karl TikToks thus far.
Bless you Dr Karl. We don’t deserve you or your outrageous fits.
