It seems like there's a new influencer on the block.

After Twitter user Barbara L from Texas, US, explained to her dad, known as Omar, what an Influencer is, the father claimed that he could do a better job of becoming one, Mirror reports.

"My dad asked me what an influencer was, and after I explained he said, 'Pssh, I could do that. Well . . . he did. The best part is he works in construction," Barbara tweeted.

The dad then started the Instagram account, Just a Construction Guy, highlighting his job as a construction worker.

In just over a month, Omar racked up more than 500 000 followers on the social media platform, Daily Mail reports.

In his popular posts, the construction worker can be seen posing with coffee, donning his outfit of the day, and recreating the popular "leading someone by the hand" shot.

Omar's followers have been loving his pictures, with many of them leaving positive comments.

"I love your account. Huge fun!" one follower wrote.

"This is my favourite Instagram account OMG," another follower wrote.
