A young Alabama man is gaining worldwide acclaim with his TikTok videos.

Most of his videos are downright fascinating and a bit on the eerie side of things.

Especially his urban legends in Alabama video series.

The viral star is named Joshua Dairen, according to his page on social media.

There is so much about Alabama in his videos that most of us have never heard before.

His page has over 1 millions likes at this time. His videos on towns under Lake Martin and Smith Lake have become very popular.

Or, one of my personal favorites, the Alabama leprechaun seen in a tree.

Alabama urban legends are fun to learn about and clearly lots of folks agree as Joshua's TikTok page continues to grow.
OR, my worst nightmare. A deadly snake on the loose. 
Here's his video on the "missing cobra" in Moody, Alabama.
