You could not have heard of Andy King earlier than that well-known documentary about Fyre Festival dropped on Netflix in January 2019, however you’ll be happy to know he’s lastly been signed up by Evian for a marketing campaign.
For those that don’t bear in mind, Andy was the one who was so determined to avoid wasting the doomed pageant that he was even satisfied by the organisers to offer sexual favours to get a cargo of bottles of water launched by customs.
While he by no means needed to resort to that in the finish, Evian have signed Andy up to advertise a particular, limited-edition bottle of water with the slogan: ‘So good you’d do something for it’.
Andy advised People: ‘One 12 months in the past, I shared with the world my willingness to “take one for the team” to carry Evian to thirsty festival-goers… and unexpectedly grew to become an web sensation in a single day.
‘On the first anniversary, Evian is dropping a particular bottle with an all-new slogan in honour of my notorious workforce spirit.
‘As a long-time Evian fan — of both the water itself and the brand’s sustainable practices — I couldn’t be extra thrilled!’
There are solely 10 of the bottles obtainable to have fun a 12 months since the documentary was first aired, and Andy is giving them away in a contest on his Instagram account.
Andy grew to become the breakout star of Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened after he confessed the lengths he would go to to cease Fyre Festival from being cancelled.
The aspirational music and humanities pageant had been deliberate to happen on Pablo Escobar’s former island in the Bahamas, with partygoers paying up to $250,000 (£192,000) for tickets, anticipating the heights of luxurious.
However, organiser Billy McFarland hadn’t deliberate for the infrastructure being in place to deal with so many individuals on a tiny island, and shortly bumped into huge monetary and logistical difficulties, leaving hundreds of festivalgoers stranded with out meals or lodging.
In the documentary, Andy defined what he was requested to do to get the water by means of customs, revealing: ‘We had four containers filled, four 18-wheeler trucks filled with Evian water that I had left the week before for two days to go to meetings in Bermuda for the America’s Cup.
‘And once I got here again, I had missed the massive assembly with customs. And in fact, customs had mentioned to Billy and the gang, it’s worthwhile to pay us $175,000 (£134,000) in money at present for us to launch the water.
‘Billy known as and mentioned “Andy, we need you to take one big thing for the team.” And I mentioned, “Oh my gosh, I’ve been taking something for the team every day”.
‘He mentioned, “Well, you’re our wonderful gay leader and we need you to go down, will you s**k d**k to fix this water problem?”
‘And I mentioned, “Billy, what?” And he mentioned, “Andy, if you will go down and suck Cunningham’s d**k, who is the head of customs, and get him to clear all of the containers with water, you will save this festival.”
‘And I literally drove home, took a shower, I drank some mouthwash, and I got into my car to drive across the island to take one for the team.’
Thankfully, customs launched the water with none particular favours, simply the promise that customs could be amongst the first to be paid their import price as soon as the cash points have been sorted.
There’s loyalty after which there’s Andy King.
