Dancing out in public is no easy feat. To do so, you must be so confident and courageous that embarrassment is only an afterthought. Quark, born Joyce Tanner, has that confidence. His videos can be broken down into sketches, skits, pranks, reaction videos, and challenge videos. This Asian American TikToker is present on Youtube, with 9.93 million subscribers, and was popular on Vine, the precursor to TikTok.

A lot of his TikToks are him doing funny dances out in public to capture reactions from random strangers. The main reason people watch these videos is to see his silly dances, but more important than that they are watching to see how the outside world reacts to them. In one of his YouTube videos he walked around New York as North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. In another, he recreated Squid Game. But one of his most popular videos is his song "AY AY AY", which would go on to become a famous TikTok sound.
