If you’re an avid social media user, it’s highly likely that you’ve seen Dylan Zippe videos on TikTok—or perhaps even followed him and left comments on his posts. But who exactly is this man? Where did he come from? The answer to the latter question isn’t as simple as one might think.


The rise of social media has given way to a new generation of celebrities. Formerly only seen on television, these icons are now found in the palm of your hand with the emergence of TikTok, one of the most popular social media apps today.

With over 1 billion users and counting, more than 40 million posts daily and a growing community that can’t seem to get enough, it is easy to see why this app has become so popular. One person who has managed to keep a part in this app’s success story is Dylan Zippe.

As one of the app’s most liked stars, Dylan manages to capture many people’s attention with his unique style and sense for creativity. But how did Dylan get his start? And what kind of artist is he?


TikTok has been taking the world by storm and with nearly 200 million users, it doesn’t seem like its slowing down. The app is all about short, fun videos that are perfect for the fast-paced, busy world we live in. It’s no wonder that there are some pretty famous celebrities who have found a home on the app and have found success there.

But what about people who aren’t as well known? The ones with millions of followers but still relatively unknown? Today we’re taking a look at one of those people…Dylan Zippe.
Dylan Zippe is a relatively unknown TikTok star with more than 12 million followers on his account.

The Good

Dylan Zippe has achieved more than most people have in their lifetime. He has been recognized internationally as a social media influencer and he has also made it to the top of TikTok, the world’s largest video sharing platform.

But who is Dylan Zippe? Where did he come from and how did he get this far? In this post, we will take a look at his life journey, past and present.

Dylan was born in Calgary, Canada on June 24th, 1996. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother was forced to work two jobs to provide for him and his sister Emily. As soon as Dylan turned 16, he left home to move with his girlfriend to Hamilton, Ontario.

When Dylan and his girlfriend broke up three years later, Dylan found himself living in poverty with nothing but his clothes and computer. Out of desperation and anger, Dylan posted a new profile picture that gained the attention of an agency that helped put him through school. The Good:
Dylan Zippe has accomplished so much in such little time! Let us all hope that one day we can live up to what Dylan has done!

The Bad

Dylan Zippe has a YouTube channel called DylZippi – of which he only has one video. He has two Instagram accounts, both created in 2019. His first account was made on January 11th and his second on February 12th. And most importantly, he didn’t upload his first TikTok until March 3rd.

This would mean that Dylan Zippe was able to create an account with over 1 million followers in less than 2 months (and as of this writing, he now has 2.2 million).

If you want to know who this mystery man is – you’ll have to wait for him to reveal it himself. But it wouldn’t be surprising if the true identity is revealed soon. TikTok itself will release their annual list of top trending creators, which is scheduled to be released at the end of April.

The Ugly

Dylan Zippe is a mystery man. He’s not on any social media sites and there are no photos of him anywhere. Some people think he might be a ghost or that he was in the witness protection program. The truth is, he doesn’t exist at all.

Dylan Zippe was created by comedian Timmy Williams for his YouTube channel The Ugly in an attempt to prank TikTok users who were looking for the original video of him singing one of his songs. Williams says he came up with the idea while taking a shower and it took him less than 15 minutes to make the whole thing.

I always thought it would be hilarious if I had my own character who could take over the internet, Williams said. I’m just trying to give you guys what you want. And so far, it looks like they’re getting what they want.
