A TikTok creator has gained over 125 million views after starting a journey to swap a worthless tub of sand for an actual Tesla from Elon Musk. Since beginning the project, @isaiahphoto has gathered 2 million followers on the platform. #sandtotesla
In his introduction to the first part of the series he says:
"I'm currently trading this worthless container of sand up until I receive a brand new Tesla from Elon Musk himself."
Below is the journey so far.
After collecting the container of sand from the beach and putting it up online, his first successful trade was for two wetsuits.
"I just traded a worthless container of sand for two wetsuits," he says.
From that, the wetsuits were traded for a printer worth $300, which then got swapped for a pair of noise-canceling headphones and then an electric skateboard worth $1,499.
An Instagram follower then messaged Isaiah, saying he'd swap the skateboard for an electric guitar.
"Hey man, just saw your series on Tik Tok. Love the idea! I have a custom Fender electric guitar worth around $4,000 that I can trade for the board. Let me know and I can ship it to you."
The TikTokker then somehow managed to get a billboard in LA, to get Youtube personality, David Dobrik's attention, so he could make a worthy swap. Dobrik currently has over 22 million fans on TikTok and is a high profile Youtube personality.
The tactic seemed to work, with Dobrik replying to Isaiah via a TikTok video saying:
"So Isaiah, I'm gonna take you up on your deal. Give me your electric guitar and I'll trade you for something. I just have to figure out what. But it won't be a Tesla 'cause you need to get it from Elon Musk."
Both Isaiah and David meet up, and David swaps his Hollywood Tour Bus worth $15K for the guitar bringing him one more step to getting his Tesla from Elon Musk.
How many more swaps do you think it'll take Isaiah to get the Tesla?
