Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had some fun on TikTok on Aug 16, showing off his "modelling skills" to his followers.

The 95-year-old began the video, titled "Photoshoot like a model", with a playful disclaimer: "I'm not a model but here are some of my photos."

The 15-second video then launched into his collection of studio photos, which saw him striking a variety of poses for the camera – standing, seated, a finger on his temple, a hand adjusting his cufflinks, a hand fixing his tie and so forth.

The video was also reposted on Instagram and garnered nearly 400,000 views in just one day.

This marks his second posting since joining TikTok on Aug 5.

Dr Mahathir made headlines when he made his debut on the short-form, video-sharing platform with a video commemorating his 64-year marriage with Tun Dr Siti Hasmah.

Aside from TikTok, Dr Mahathir enjoys a strong social media presence elsewhere, with well over one million followers on both Twitter and Instagram.
