German creators the Elevator Boys became friends through TikTok and have expanded into various fields, including modeling and music.

The Elevator Boys are a group of five friends from Berlin, consisting of Jacob Rott, Bene Schulz, Tim Schaecker, Julien Brown and Luis Freitag. In a little over a year, they’ve gained a massive following of over 40 million fans worldwide with their viral videos on TikTok, leading to collaborations with celebrities such as Heidi Klum and Jason Derulo.
