This 7'1" TikToker Is Showing Us What He Sees From Up There, And My 5'3" Self Can't Comprehend This

·3 min read

This is Beau Brown, a cinematographer living in Atlanta. He's just a regular shmegular guy...oh yeah, except for the fact that he's 7'1"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, for some time now, Beau has been giving the people of TikTok what they want: *POV VIDEOS!!!!!!!!!!*

Being 7 feet tall makes cooking odd. Is this the new you? How would you look here 😂 #fyp #tall #cooking

With a GoPro-esque camera strapped to his head, Beau films himself doing day-to-day things as a 7'1" man. And standing 5'3" myself, I've gotta say — it's pretty trippy.

Like here he is in a bathroom showing us what it's like standing in a shower:

He even shows us what it's like in an even SMALLER shower, and his head *LITERALLY* lifts up a ceiling tile???

And here he is at the gym, with the majority of the machines proving to be WAAAAAY too puny for him:

He even so kindly points out how dusty the tops of the gym's vending machines are, which is something I've never even considered...??????

But maybe the wildest thing of all is seeing just how small other people look from Beau's POV. Like these other shoppers, for example:

And even this 6'2" guy at the gym. Like?! Short king alert!!!

Beau also touches on traveling as a 7'1" man, as he was recently kicked off one flight and was instead upgraded to first class (😁) on a later flight where he..."still didn't really fit." (😔)

"The worst thing about being 7'1" is definitely traveling," Beau told BuzzFeed. "The world isn't built for a seven-foot human. It's oftentimes very uncomfortable."

@bigbeaubrown

I didn't fit on my plane so they gave me first class. It was probably because of my @cuts hoodie and joggers. They said dang this dude got CLASS. First class was still tight. #fyp #travel #tall

As for the best thing? Beau says it's meeting new people. "Everywhere I go, people ask me questions and want to take pictures, so it's fun to make new connections and it's actually helped me get over my social anxiety somewhat."

Beau even touches on some social anxiety he gets when it comes to feeling constantly watched, which has gotta be pretty weird.

Still, I love to see Beau making the most of his height in these videos, and being able to laugh through what I'm sure are countless "Do you play basketball?" inquiries. Own it, KING!!!!!! 😌👑✨

So thank you, Beau, for letting us see what you see — namely how dusty the tops of vending machines are. 😌
