Netflix's documentary Fyre Fraud had a breakout viral star that made us giggle amid the growing frustration and anger many of us felt while watching.
Fyre Fraud documented the much-talked about Fyre Festival, which came under an incredible amount of scrutiny after tour promoter Billy McFarland failed to provide what he promised to attendees on several levels.
The attendees, who spent thousands of dollars expecting to be chilling in private villas in The Bahamas with catered food and performances by Blink 182 and Major Lazer were instead thrown into water-drenched tents with no real explanation as to what what going on.
The documentary exposed what really went down and the aftermath of it, which found many people who helped put Fyre Festival together left without pay, the models who advertised for it ahead of time in some potential legal trouble and Billy behind bars for several years over what he did.
Andy King, who was one of the event producers and was seen throughout Fyre Fraud, became an instant viral star after he made an oral sex confession during the documentary.
Billy asked Andy at one point to offer his oral sex services to a customs officer in the Bahamas in order to get the shipment of water needed for the festival attendees.
The GIF's and meme's began shortly after Fyre Fraud was released on Netflix's streaming service, and haven't stopped since then.
Andy talked about his experience in a video Netflix posted on their Twitter account this week.
“I’m blown away with the response of the documentary. Completely blown away. I’m now a noun, a verb, an adjective. It’s mind-boggling,”he said. “I just don’t want to be necessarily known as the blowjob king of the world!”
He found out about his viral stardom after someone he knew told him he was “trending.”
“And I’m like, I don’t even know what ‘trending’ means,” King recalled. “‘People are talking about you.’ I’m like, oh my gosh. Yesterday someone was saying, ‘You’re a me-me.’ I’m like, ‘What’s a me-me?’ They’re like, ‘No, Andy, it’s a meme.”
He's intending to use his newfound fame to help put money into the pockets of the Bahamian workers who were not compensated for their 24/7 support they gave to the failed festival.
“One of our biggest goals, obviously, is paying back everybody in the Bahamas,” he said. King also added that it was “rewarding” to see a GoFundMe started for festival caterer Maryann Rolle.
“If I can drive positive influences and a lot of positive energy towards social and environmental impact, then I think I can utilize this moment to do a lot of good,” King said.
