Daniel Mac rose to fame in the most bizarre, yet inspiring way. 

The 24-year-old started asking luxury car drivers ‘what do you do for a living?’ and posted the encounters on TikTok.

The videos went mega-viral and it wasn’t long before Daniel Mac became a household name in the industry.


Thank you so much to everyone that has supported this journey 🙏 I started this account 2 years ago because the thought of owning a luxury car sounded absurd and I wanted to know how I could do so one day. This is absolutely surreal! Huge shoutout to @ParkPlaceDealerships and Jeff for helping this happen as well ✌🏻#porsche #newcar #gt4

The content creator took to Instagram this week to reveal he had bought his dream car, the $100,000 Porsche GT4.

“I started this account because the thought of owning a luxury car seemed crazy to me,” he said. 

“I was not a content creator by any means, I was too shy to really even show my face for the first year. 

“But thanks to all of you here, I am owning something that seemed so out of grasp just two years ago.”


Mac, who has amassed a staggering 13.6 million followers on TikTok, said he owed his success to that one question. 

“Now I don’t like to get sappy, but seriously, one question changed my life forever,” he said.

“I was just a regular dude with no editing or filming experience and within two years I was shooting videos with the president”. 

Mac was invited by to interview President Joe Biden in September last year at the Detroit Auto Show.

The video was part of a collaboration between Mac and the US Administration to promote EVs and it was watched more than 37 million times. 

In the video, President Biden said a move toward electric vehicles was a priority of his.

Mac has also interviewed seven- time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1 driver Sergio Perez, and NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. 

The list continues with Paris Hilton, the original ‘wolf of Wall Street’ Jordan Belfort, Logan Paul, Wiz Khalifa, Johnny Sins, Jason Derulo, and Richard Branson.

Mac went on to thank his followers for their support and urge them to take risks to make their own dreams come true.

“Take that risk, even if it’s something as simple as just asking someone what they do for a living,” he said.

Daniel Mac has even stopped Supercar Blondie’s very own Alex Hirschi on the road.
