Who is the ‘last survivor’ on TikTok? Bizarre user claims to be trapped in 2027

There’s a bizarre new TikTok phenomenon that claims to be from the year 2027. 

The user @únicosobreviviente, which translates to “the last survivor” belongs to a man named Javier who says he woke up in 2027 Spain and is completely alone. 

Here’s what you need to know about this unfolding story. 

Who is “the last survivor” on TikTok?

Acabo de despertar en un hospital y no sé qué ha podido pasar. Hoy es 13 de febrero de 2027 y estoy solo en la ciudad.

The @únicosobreviviente account has 1.2 million followers. While it claims that “humanity has been extinguished,” there is nothing to be too alarmed about. The TikTok is likely another point-of-view account, one that tells an ongoing story through fictional characters.

In “the last survivor” we see the world through Javier’s eyes when he wakes up in a hospital on Feb. 13, 2027, in Valencia. 

Each TikTok is another installment in the series as Javier explores what used to be a fully-populated Spain. But of course, it’s easy to portray the world as empty when much of it is under the pandemic lockdowns.

Javier posts different places in Valencia in 2027, like an empty zoo where not only humans have disappeared, but animals too.

Even other users have begun to add to the narrative, claiming that Javier might be stuck in another dimension separate from ours in 2021.

The mysterious Javier showed his reflection in a building scored to some pretty sinister music for his most popular video with over 8 million views.

While there may not be much “reality” to @únicosobreviviente‘s account, it is certainly an artful way to have fun and connect with others remotely during the very real pandemic.
