''Hey guys so this is my thumb. Yes, it’s very long, yes it’s real and yes, I’ve never lost a thumb battle,” he says in one of his videos. Pina oftens shares videos of his thumb and leaves many shocked and amazed.
''That’s not a thumb that’s a sword,'' a TikTok user wrote. ''I looked at my thumb and it was 1/3rds of yours,'' said another. According to DailyMail, the 20-year-old doesn’t know why his thumb is so long compared to the rest of his hand.
''There is no reason, it’s so big just an anomaly,” he said. ''When people see my thumb, they freak out and measure it next to their own thumb, I feel great about it. It’s always great to be different and embrace your own essence,'' he adds.
