TODAY star Craig Melvin sarcastically addressed a social media user after he claimed he didn’t know who he was.
Craig detailed all of his accomplishments in a new TikTok video shortly after the NBC personality read an internet troll’s dodgy comment under a certain TikTok post.
Craig, 44, included the “Who is Craig?” Comment on his video to let his fans know the purpose of the clip.
“Well Ariel [the online user discussed], as you asked, I’m Craig. “Craig Melvin,” he said, pointing at himself.
The TV host told the person that he was a co-host of the Today show, had a show on MSNBC “for a while,” and also hosted the NBC show Dateline.
“I have a lot of jobs, I have a wife and I have two kids, nine and six,” added Craig.
Craig is married to Lindsay Czarniak, 45, and they have children Delano, 9, and Sybil, six.
He revealed that he wants to do “absolutely nothing” in his free time.
At the end of the video, however, Craig smugly clarified that the only thing he enjoyed more in his free time than doing nothing was “answering questions on TikTok.”
Craig definitely has more fans than not.

Earlier this month, during an episode of the morning show he co-hosts, he took the time to pay tribute to some of his superfans.
FOR THE LOVE OF THE FANS
The anchor posted a clip on his Instagram Stories of him jogging mid-segment in front of two fans who were in the designated audience area outside of NBC studios.
One of the fans who caught his attention held up a sign that read, “I love Big Time Rush and Craig Melvin.”
Hearts adorned the shield.
The re-emerged Big Time Rush trend is back after the boy band is back on tour and appeared on the talk show on Friday.
Craig was so touched that he hugged the elderly woman who was waving the cute sign.
Another woman standing next to the older woman who appeared to be her daughter also earned a hug from him as she was also a super fan.
Big Time Rush’s biggest hit, Boyfriend, played alongside the touching video.
The NBC personality reposted the short snippet from his TikTok account.
In early May, Craig announced that he had joined TikTok and promoted his account as a place where he would talk about unspecified things.
He posted his first TikTok in his office at 30 Rockefeller Center.
“Hey people! Craig Melvin here from NBC News, from The Today Show,” Craig began in the video.
Wearing a light blue shirt with a striped red, blue and white tie, Craig joked that “the unthinkable has happened”.
He continued, “Some of the younger people in the office convinced me to join TikTok. I don’t know exactly what it is, but I’m here for the tik and I’m here for the tok.”
Craig then said he would post about “random things” including food, cooking, music, his kids, his wife, his office and behind the scenes at work.
“Yeah, you got me, I have a bar in my office!” he said, panning the camera around to show other parts of his Rockefeller Center workspace.
“Like I said, I’m here for the tik, I’m here for the tok.”
He then said goodbye and ended the clip after showing viewers his office.
