A US man has skyrocketed to internet fame after revealing his abnormally large thumb.

Jacob Pina, a 20-year-old from Massachusetts, has been dubbed "thumb boy" by internet users after posting a video of his unbelievably long finger.

He says he has "no idea" why his thumb is so long but it doesn't bother him.

"When people see my thumb they freak out and measure it next to their own," he told Metro.

"I feel great about it. It's always great to be different and embrace your own essence."

Pina also says he's never lost a thumb battle. 

His whopping finger has earned him more than 147,000 followers on video site Tik Tok.

Pina says he gained 102,000 in just a single day since revealing his thumb.

One of his videos has more than two million likes and 21 million views.
