The current wave of TikTok videos that keep springing up on our social media feeds is enough to keep us entertained. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes thought-provoking - these viral videos have caught the fancy of most of social media users. The latest one that has made even the non-TikTok viewers look up and notice, is a video showing Amazon head Jeff Bezos's net worth with the help of rice grains; and it goes without saying it was a mountain of grains.
The viral TikTok video was made by Humphrey Yang, who is an e-commerce consultant from Silicon Valley. He regularly posts finance-centric videos with subtle nuances of humour; but this latest video has put him in spotlight. In a 2-part video series, Humphrey used one grain of rice to represent USD 100,000; so 10 grains made for USD 1 million, and 10,000 grains depicted a total amount of USD 1 billion.
The video generated quite a stir on social media, so Humphrey decided to come out with another video to measure how much pounds of rice would be needed to make an estimate of USD 122 billion, which was supposedly Jeff Bezos's net worth at the time of making the video.
