TikTok Videos Show Life on “Ghost Ship” in “Empty World”
In March 2021, the TikTok account Kilian Maruta (@kilianandmaruta) began posting videos that appeared to document the life of an “empty world” and an “alternate universe”. The latest addition to the bizarre video series shows what appeared to be an empty “ghost ship”.
We’re going to break down the history of the TikTok account, the ‘the empty world’ video series, the ‘ghost ship’ videos, and how the intriguing videos can all be explained.
the first video published in the series shows empty streets, supermarkets and even a McDonald’s.
It was uploaded on March 23 and has been viewed 23 million times.
The eerie nature of the videos brings drama and mystery to the series. But all of the videos appear to have been posted for fun by imaginative creators.
Older videos on the account showed that Kilian and Maruta, who are said to be two people (a man and a woman), maybe from Tokyo, Japan.
Highlights of the series “Empty World”
For over two months, Kilian Maruta’s (@kilianandmaruta) ’empty world’ TikTok video series has shown places with no one in sight.
Rome manifested itself again in a video published April 1. Richmond Hotel may be seen behind the gas pumps. In the videos, @kilianandmaruta claims that in the “alternate universe”, “food doesn’t rot”.
On April 11, a new video explained, “What I have done is illegal.”
I am not proud of it, but I am paying for my sins.
I was a classified AI programmer working for a large tech company. I hacked into the company’s quantum computer. Unlimited access. I uploaded my own code to the computer and it started to learn. Quickly. Very fast. He evolved into something else. And suddenly it happened!
I reappeared in an empty world. And now I am ALONE. Completely alone. And I need help. If you are there, do not hesitate …
On April 25, a new video showed pieces of computer generated images, which means that the creator (s) of the videos may have video editing skills.
The “ghost ship”
“I woke up on a ghost ship.” On June 1, after traveling through various cities that seemed empty, Kilian Maruta’s (@kilianandmaruta) TikTok story turned into an empty cruise liner.
the first TikTok video on the “ghost ship” on “Day One” showed @kilianandmaruta recording an empty pool, arcade games, empty seats, empty hallways and an empty guest bedroom. We also noticed what appears to be the radar and controls on the ship’s deck. The video was shot at night.
the second video in the series “ghost ship” was shot in the light of day on the “third day”. It showed that the ship’s engines were on and that it was moving. Kilian Maruta visited the “pool terrace”, seeing once again that it was empty. “I have no food. No water, ”they wrote. The camera pointed at a door to an odd dining room, then moved to a ladder marked “Restricted Area.”
In the third video on the “fourth day,” another huge restaurant and dining room seemed empty.
On June 4th @kilianandmaruta posted the last video of the “ghost ship”. It was the “Fifth Day”. They claimed to have found food and water in a snack bar. At the end of the video, a page from Stephen Webb’s delivered, “If the universe is full of aliens … Where is everyone? », Appears for several seconds.
Explain the videos
TikTok commentators have tried to explain the “ghost ship” and other videos in different ways.
We have seen comments that the videos show video editing, virtual reality, a video game, or a simulation. Others thought the ship was an old Disney Dream cruise ship or a ferry in Ireland.
Several others have also argued that there may be fewer people to remove in a video editing process, including on the cruise ship, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We don’t know who Kilian and Maruta are, or how the videos were created. It is likely that the videos were recorded and people were subsequently deleted during the post-production process. Some of the videos shot in the cities appeared to have been recorded early in the morning, which would mean that fewer people on the street would be erased later in the edit.
For now, the entertaining ’empty world’ and ‘ghost ship’ series by Kilian Maruta (@kilianandmaruta) will likely continue on TikTok, where all the videos can be watched and enjoyed.
