Adam found fame in 2015 when a seven-second clip on Vine — which showed him walking into a bathroom in his underwear and cheerfully saying, "Hi, welcome to Chili's," to the mirror — went viral.

The video had accumulated over 25 million loops on Vine before the app shut down in 2016, according to Variety.

A New York University graduate, Adam went on to pursue a career in music, releasing his first album, Latch Relay, in 2018 under the name Plas Teg.
