Liam Carpenter: TikTok career
Liam Carpenter did not become known as a professional basketball player, but as a TikToker. In 2022, he started publishing short videos in the form of sketches there. The videos show Liam doing everyday activities like shopping and taking the train, and leisure activities like drinking beer. He plays a fictitious German who wears white socks and a breast pocket and parodies German customs, idiosyncrasies and clichés.
Particularly famous is the introductory phrase „In Germany we don’t say“, which he utters in many of his videos. The introduction usually leads to a statement about how something is communicated in Germany and in what way this differs from the way it is expressed in other countries.
The German idiosyncrasies presented are clearly marked as stereotypes in the videos in a humorous way. Therefore, Liam Carpenter is not perceived as someone who makes fun of Germany. Instead, he is now followed by a large fan base totalling 1.9 million TikTok users. On Instagram, Liam has 1.4 million followers and on YouTube, 744,000 subscribers.
