Eric Adams started his week, and his foray into TikTok, posting himself standing in City Hall in almost total darkness, smoothie in hand. The sun provides the only meager light in the clip. Two computer monitors and a stationary bike linger in the frame as the camera inexplicably pans away. “Bing bong, your mayor’s on TikTok,” our mayor says to announce he is bing bong on TikTok. “Let’s get stuff done.”
Perhaps the darkness is a reflection of the stuff that Adams just got done, such as getting rid of an already-half-hearted lobbying disclosure policy for his staffers. Or perhaps it’s an omen of things to come (more TikToks).
