In a viral video, a woman twerks for Chicago inmates from across the street.
After being posted on TikTok, a video of a woman ‘twerking’ for inmates across the street has gone popular online.
On June 8, TikTok user @Mazz1234_, real name Madsy Tzagournis, submitted the video, which has already received over 12 million views and three million likes.
She captioned the video, which was shot in Chicago, Illinois, “The city man…first day out here.” The on-screen text reads, “This girl went to the top of a parking garage to twerk to the prisoners across the street, and they’re flashing their lights for her.”
The woman, whose name is now unknown, is seen ‘twerking’ next to her car, which is parked at the top of a parking garage, in the video. Before zooming in on the woman, the movie opens with what appears to be a normal night view outside Tzagournis’ window.
The woman, who appears to be a distant figure, is certainly giving her all for her impromptu performance. In response, the inmates flashed their cell lights at her, presumably as a jailed version of a standing ovation.
The city dweller… #chicago #funny #fyp #firstdayouthere

One of the numerous viewers who praised her move said, “She woke up and chose YOLO.” Another noted, “Not all heroes wear capes.”
“That totally counts as community service,” wrote one TikTok user. Another added: “They’re gonna remember this for a while.”
Some viewers however were left speculating as to why the woman had decided to spend her evening twerking for prisoners. “I wonder what life choices she made to get her to that exact moment,” asked one commenter.
An incarcerated husband was the go-to guess for most: “She got a hubby in there,” wrote one.
Tzagournis’ viral video isn’t the first time TikTok and prison have crossed-over though, as the app hosts a whole community of users doing time.
“Prison Tok” sees prisoners document their life inside though videos in their cells, from make-shift recipes to DIY water heaters. Of course cell phones aren’t allowed in prisons, and so the videos are filmed on contraband phones.
One TikTok user, @blackboyjmoney, even started his own “cooking show” on TikTok while in prison. Jeren Combs,. This is a brief summary.
