One can see people driving luxurious cars around on the road and may ask themselves the dreaded question: "How can someone afford that and drive it around casually?" TikTok user Daniel McDonald is trying to answer just this question.
To say that all the rich people who can afford the cream of the crop don't necessarily have to grind 24/7 wouldn't be a false statement. By approaching high-end luxury cars and asking the drivers what they do for a living, Daniel manages to document some really enlightening revelations. Not bothered by being approached with a camera filming, most of the drivers give on-the-spot and candid answers, resulting in a hilarious yet somewhat infuriating video series.
Some sold drugs
The TikToker behind the videos, @itsdanielmac, has only posted eight TikToks; however, they've all been hits. The first video that started the whole thing has perhaps the most bizarre encounter ever — one guy who is driving a sleek Lamborghini Huracan directly admits that he sells drugs.
Most of the people who he approached had actually solid answers, such as doctors, lawyers, and bankers. But also one guy who couldn't have been older than 40, simply answered that he was "retired."
Some didn't really do anything for a living
Perhaps the most perplexing ones were those who didn't know how to answer the question, since they didn't really do anything for a living. For a split second, it can be seen that they are contemplating just how rich they are to not work while having a Porsche.
That first guy who was caught so off-guard that he answered with "Nothing!" just puts everything into perspective.
The best answers were probably "I have a rich father in law", "I smuggle drugs, but can't tell you about it," and "I am married."
As of this writing, Daniel's account has 1.6M followers and 18.1M likes which shows just how many people were curious about what the rich had been doing to get those sick rides.
Moreover, watching Daniel kindly ask what they're doing for a living and compliment their cars makes for a good watch indeed.
The road to success
According to the answers, the path the success goes through being born into a rich family, getting into the medical industry, and having money in the first place to make investments to become even richer so that you can own one of the 500 Bugatti Chiron's ever made.

From the looks of it, marrying someone rich helps too. But we also tried to answer this very question: Are rich people smart, lucky, or neither?
