Don’t look down Caroline! TikTok dance troupe heads to Malta’s tallest building for latest viral videos
It’s extremely difficult to spend more than a few minutes on TikTok without stumbling across a dance video, which is why it takes something special to top the rest. But a video shot in Malta did just that – literally – by having a group of people dance atop the tallest building on the island.
Uploaded by the dance troupe VFam Over the weekend, the video features energetic choreography to a remix of Sweet Caroline on the rooftop of Mercury Tower, the 33-story Maltese juggernaut in Paceville.
The Filipino dance group celebrated a year of content last week, with their routines appearing everywhere from the strongholds of Valletta to beaches and malls across the island.
But everything was sped up thanks to a comment on a recent video: “So when will you do your routine on Malta’s tallest building?” I’m waiting.”
And when it turned out the comment was from the director of the tower still under construction, it didn’t take long for the dream collaboration to come true.
It was so important to the group that they initially uploaded a behind-the-scenes video of them riding the Mercury Tower all the way to the 33rd floor, meeting “Ms. Maria the Manager “, and film the next TikTok.
And even before the final video was released, behind the scenes at TikTok quickly went viral, racking up over 35,000 views on day one.
A few hours later, the final video was indeed released… reaching 25,000 views in less than 24 hours.
Over 1,400 likes, over 120 comments and dozens of shares later, the video has managed to bring a lot of positive vibes to Malta’s TikTok feed.
And let’s face it; the local wedding favorite blaring in the background certainly helped!
This isn’t the first time the Mercury House Tower, which is still under construction, has appeared in a viral TikTok video.
Last summer, Renato Mizzi, one of the tower crane operators working on the gigantic construction effort, took to TikTok for a series of dizzying glimpses from the top.
And for a small island that has spent the last two decades seeing the 23-story Portomaso Business Tower claim the title of tallest building in the country, all of those viral videos clearly go a long way to show what Malta looks like from another perspective, perspective. much higher.
