Plan 9 from Outer Space, Dhinchak Pooja and countless TikTok videos made for no apparent reason or rhyme – sometimes videos are bafflingly entertaining despite not being highly aesthetic.

One such peddler of joyous moments, a custodian of true video art – TikTok-er Bharghav Chippada – has taken the Indian internet scene by storm. The producer of bizarre, often hilarious, slice-of-life videos, Chippada films himself and his co-star Nithya, doing things that are, well, silly but funny.

With over 4.3 million fans for his channel Fun Bucket Bharghav, the TikTok-er humbly describes himself as a “SouthIndian Tiktok Star” and makes short videos on everything from break-ups and pranks to eating free without wallets.

Some fans have also attempted enamoured tributes.
