Originally from southern Poland, al fresco cooking sensations ‘The Men With The Pot’ have clocked up so many hits on social media with their mouth-watering takes on traditional Polish dishes that they are now among the first recipients of TikTok’s ‘Creator Fund’.

In a statement, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum said the videos were “dangerously close or are already beyond the border of trivialisation of history and being disrespectful to the victims.”
The #IlovePolandchallenge has become a hit across the continent with people showing off their moves to the DJ Hazel song.
Maria Jeleniewska, 17, was given the title of Queen for having over 20 of the most popular 30 transition videos on the app which have also seen her attracting the attention of international brands who now employ her as an ‘influencer’.
