Andy Trick Shots Becomes Viral Sensation on Tik Tok
My name is Andrew Wahrlich of AndyTrickShots on Tik Tok. I was born and still reside in my home town Albany, New York. I have always had a huge passion for creating seemingly impossible trick shots and sharing them with audiences around the world!
Throughout my childhood, I always enjoyed being creative and increasing my hand eye coordination. Anything from juggling to playing guitar, I just wanted to master my dexterity at an early age and learn as many different skills as possible. Being a musician so young, I always found myself having to choose time between sports and music. This eventually became an even bigger struggle throughout high school.
Once I got into college, my friends and I started the SUNY Oneonta Ultimate Frisbee team. This would ultimately prove to be very valuable, increasing my trick shot skill level and my love for introducing the frisbee into many of my trick shot videos.
I have tried many different ways of getting noticed through social media and have struggled with finding my exact niche because of my vast love for so many different hobbies. I started a fishing YouTube channel called “518 Fishing” I have a verified music YouTube channel under the name “Rezon8”, but it wasn’t until I created AndyTrickShots on Tik Tok that I saw my true calling and saw many of my videos go mega viral!
While trick shots are my niche, I try to change up the style of each trick shot so that it keeps things interesting and my audience wanting to see what I will try next. I accredit patience and persistence as being the most important aspects of creating a successful trick shot. Some trick shots can take thousands of attempts and many days of filming before I get the desired result. I have found that the longer it takes to succeed, the greater the satisfaction in the end.
As a content creator, it is very important to focus on how the video or trick shot will be perceived and experienced from the perspective of the audience. It doesn’t always have to be the most difficult trick shot in the world if its engaging and entertaining to watch from the angle of the observer.
