The Australian opener, David Warner’s latest TikTok video took a completely different turn, moving away from wacky dance moves to superhero territory. In the video, the Australia opener can be seen standing on the ground, before “summoning” his bat, which comes flying to his hand from a distance before the screen turns dark and there is lightning all around, like Chris Helmsworth’s Thor in the Avengers movies.
Captioning the video on Instagram with laughing emojis the left-hander wrote: “acting horrible but result pretty good thoughts??” Here is the Avengers-inspired video:
With cricket activities coming to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, Warner has used his free time making TikTok videos. It all started with his dance to the Bollywood hit song “Sheila ki Jawaani” with his daughter Indi. And since then, he has emerged as a star, despite several of his teammates trolling him for his videos.
On Tuesday, Warner went on to acknowledge that “we have lost it”, after sharing a video of him grooving to Guru Randhawa’s song “Slowly Slowly” along with his family. Not too long back Warner’s former teammate Mitchell Johnson had brutally trolled him after watching one of his many TikTok videos. Commenting on the video in in Warner was ‘pumping up the jam’, Johnson commented, “I would say you’ve officially lost it but not sure you ever had it Bull.”
Australian pacer Pat Cummins wasn’t too impressed by Warner’s antics either. During a chat on KKR’s Twitter handle, when asked about Warner’s TikTok videos, Cummins, said “you are enjoying them are you?
Cummins elaborated, “You won’t see me doing that but good on him. He’s always high energy and he does have a funny side to himself, so I think you have seen it coming out in the few videos. “But I’ll tell you what, if we can back on tour and he’s trying to put me into the leotard to fit in the video, I am not going to yes.”
Probed further and told “you would be worried if he brings a leotard to tour”, Cummins said: “Yeah, that’s a good point. He probably will.”
