If you could choose between love or a PlayStation 5, which option would you pick? The former (hopefully) sets you up for life while the latter is only in vogue for roughly seven more years. It could be a tough decision for some, so TikTok user PANDA BOI posed the question to the general public. In a video that has now gone viral in the space of just 24 hours, it's quite clear people are opting for the PS5.
The 22-second clip shows the TikTok star setting up in a busy public place and placing a PS5, PS5 Digital Edition, PS5 DualSense controller, and a PS4 system at his feet. He holds a whiteboard up asking: "Love or PlayStation?" Everyone takes the PlayStation. Someone even takes a PS5 console and an extra PS5 DualSense pad!
It's unclear how much of this is staged (probably all of it, knowing TikTok), but it's still a hugely successful video that has immediately gone viral. While TikTok pegs the video at 846,000 views at the time of writing, the YouTube version has an absurd 24 million views. And it was only posted yesterday. To the tune of Lonely by Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco, PANDA BOI will be banking nicely off this one.
The video appears to be part of a series the TikTok user is doing in the lead up to Christmas, gifting random strangers sought-after presents like iPhones, Vans trainers, and cameras. Again, this is all likely set up for views. Still, the question remains: Love or PlayStation?
