Tech-focused creator Mattykay has smashed through his YouTube 100k plaque goal in less than two days, after a PC giveaway video went viral on TikTok.

Within TikTok there are a wide variety of communities separated by interests, with Car-Tok, Tech-Tok, and Dance-Tok being among the most popular.

Throughout Tech-Tok, creators share their thoughts and opinions on computers, monitors, keyboards, headsets, and other peripherals, sometimes giving away products.

Mattykay is the latest TikToker to host a giveaway, and this time it’s an entire computer. The video quickly went viral, helping Matty earn a coveted YouTube award in the process.
