Ep 32: From FYRE Fiasco to Force for Good: How Andy King is Embracing Virality
This week’s episode we have another conversation that was recorded live during our Social Media Week Los Angeles event and features the incredible Andy King.
You might recognize the name as Andy became an internet celebrity thanks to his infamous appearance on Netflix’s FYRE Festival documentary, “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.” Following the Netflix documentary Andy found himself in the middle of a social media blitz after, which quickly turned him into a meme overnight...something that was completely foriegn to Andy because at the time he didn’t even know what a meme was!
During the conversation Andy discussed his career before FYRE and how he first got involved with the organizers, how he embraced becoming an overnight viral celebrity, his impression of the Influencer space and how it is changing culture, and how he is using his new found celebrity for good.
