The videos show him sending ancient buildings flying in the air, changing the colour of cars in traffic, and even dragging the moon from the sky towards him.

According to Shine, Zhu works off a script and uses everyday life as an inspiration. He also makes videos based on his passion for painting and Kung Fu, needing around a week to complete each clip.

According to national news outlet Weibo International, Zhu plans to start making more meaningful films to challenge his growing audience.
