Papa John's founder joins TikTok and shows off his mega-mansion.

With the world continuing to practice social distancing amid the current coronavirus pandemic (also known as COVID-19), it seems a lot more adults have decided to join the popular teen app TikTok to create entertaining videos. Whether it's challenges, dance routines, lip-sync videos, or skits, more and more people have discovered the viral app. 

The pizza chain founder recently posted a series of TikTok videos, and in one clip he revealed his mansion a la MTV Cribs style. The sprawling home is located in Louisville, Ky., and is reportedly worth $11 million.

In the clip, viewers see an aerial shot of the mansion, revealing the huge property, which is even surrounded by a moat. When initially walking into the home, there is a massive eagle clock statue that "spins four times an hour." Let's just say Papa is very proud of that statue.

Additionally, someone wrote, "'30 million Americans are out of work. I think now's a good time to release a video of my gaudy mansion.' -Papa John. The interior design of his house is equal parts Graceland and Liberace's home in Vegas."
