PAOLI — Four members of the Orange County, Indiana clerk’s office are now quasi-TikTok celebrities after posting eight videos thanking Secretary of State Connie Lawson for her service to the state.

The videos show four members of the clerk’s office speaking to the camera. They congratulate Lawson and say they appreciate her service to Indiana.

One video now has more than 400,000 views on TikTok and more than 2,200 comments, including a “Good Luck Connie!” from Arby’s and Red Bull, because that’s what happens in 2021 now.

Lawson announced this week she was leaving her position.

Some other TikTok users have made spinoffs to their video, as The Verge noted Friday.
