Presence on TikTik
Derkslurp’s oldest post on TikTok dates back to November 20, 2016. This was before the merger, when the app was still known as Musical.ly. Set to ‘Milkshake’ (Radio Mix) by Kelis, his first video shows Derk dancing while facing away from the camera.
In these initial days, he was not comfortable yet to reveal his face to his growing audience. As a result, he wore a mask. He did an unofficial face reveal in a video posted on June 18, 2017. His early videos were lip-syncing and performing videos. However, even then, his content perfectly demonstrated his quirky personality and idiosyncratic sense of humour.
In the ensuing years, as he gradually established himself on the platform, his content became more refined, and his humour became more subtle.
Presence on YouTube
Derkslurp created his YouTube channel on October 3, 2016. His first video there, titled ‘Q&A (I hope my parents don’t watch this)’, was posted on August 27, 2018.
