1) Zach King's Harry Potter illusion - 2.2 billion views

The undisputed King of mind-blowing TikToks strikes again. Zach currently holds the title for most viewed TikTok video of all time, with a whopping 2.2 *BILLION* views. We won't spoil the reveal of the video, we'll let you experience the magic yourself...

2) James Charles' Christmas wonderland transition - 1.7 billion views

It wouldn't be a most viewed list without James Charles, would it? Despite his makeup transformations, dance videos and singing collabs being popular on the app, his most viewed video is actually a glimpse inside his 2019 Sisters Christmas Party.

4) Zach King's cake glass illusion - 966.7 million views

Zach's back at it again... this time with an illusion that will have you questioning EVERYTHING. How did he pour that water into the glass if it was actually a cake the whole time? Was there a cut? Is it edited? Help. This video has 13.2m likes but honestly? It deserves more.

5) Bella Poarch's 'M To The B' video - 752.1 million views
