TikTokers are recreating the in-flight experience from their laundry rooms (VIDEOS)

Apr 20 2020, 3:05 pm

In the current state of the world, travel of any kind is strongly discouraged unless deemed essential.

Of course, we miss all aspects of travel. Whether it’s selecting a destination, making an itinerary, packing, or sitting on the plane, it’s all part of the experience.

TikTok influencers are illustrating their pining for travel by recreating the in-flight experience from the comfort of their own laundry rooms.

The trend began with a video from Jeroen Gortworst, where viewers are lured in with what appears to be a view outside a plane window with a captain speaking from the cockpit.

From there, the camera zooms out to reveal Gortworst sitting on the floor of his laundry room with a fake tray table, a glass of wine, and a passport as Enya’s “Only Time” plays in the background.

The video served as inspiration for countless TikTokers around the world to create similar videos.

Here are some of our favorites.
