The Truth About The TikTok Account Claiming To Be From 2027

In February 2021, the human race — already shaken by global catastrophes, political turmoil, and the arrival of a Pentagon UFO report that could blow the lid right off everything we thought we believed — received an unexpected visitation that set the whole internet alight. Well, that set TikTok alight. Or part of it, at least.

On the 13th of the winter month, a user by the name of @unicosobreviviente — which is Spanish for "lone survivor" — posted a video of deserted streets and stores in Valencia, Spain, and claimed that there was no sign of human life anywhere. "​​I just woke up in a hospital, and I don't know what might have happened. Today is February 13, 2027, and I am alone in the city," the user, who gives his name only as Javier, wrote in his first post.

Many were intrigued, if not convinced, by Javier's footage. Certainly, the otherwise bustling city of Valencia seemed entirely lifeless, and as Javier posted more videos, it seemed less and less likely that the user had just managed to fluke a few minutes of footage of unpopulated streets one especially quiet morning. And the videos keep coming. What exactly is going on?

Javier, TikTok's 'lone survivor'

As Javier's posts continued throughout 2021, his world became more clear. "I woke up alone in a hospital in Valencia (Spain). I couldn't remember my name or where I lived. I decided to go outside and there were no people. Everything was like in 2021, but the electronic devices showed 2027. I discovered that there was a connection between 2021 and 2027. People in 2021 could see the objects I left in the city, but people couldn't see me and I couldn't see them. And a few days ago I found a letter telling me that I am the JESP8827 experiment," he wrote in one post titled "MY STORY."

Sure, some users were, of course, joylessly skeptical. Why were there human footprints on the beach, for instance? How come there was no dust when Javier explored abandoned apartments? How was his Wi-Fi working? Why was everything so tidy? Others, however, wondered how Javier — look, spoiler alert, he's not a time traveler from 2027, OK? — managed to get such uncanny footage of deserted Spanish landmarks day after day, month after month.

Javier's account now boasts over 6 million followers, and the user regularly engages with his fanbase by encouraging them to post questions and requests and to find the treasure that he sends back to 2021 from his abandoned future world. So whatever "JESP8827" turns out to be, Javier has promoted it exceptionally well.
