Andy King appeared in the Fyre Festival Documentaries on Hulu and Netflix as the guy attempting coordinate the festival’s logistics. He soon became known as the “bottled water guy” after the detainment of Evian water trucks spurred what would become one of the greatest meme trends of 2019.

Billy McFarland, head scammer of this festival, encouraged King as their “wonderful gay leader” to prepare to “suck dick to fix this water problem.”

And you know what? King was ready for it.

“I got into my car, to drive across the island to take one for the team. And I got to [the customs officer’s] office, fully prepared to suck his dick,” King recalls in the Netflix documentary.

Luckily, the officer “couldn’t have been nicer” and simply requested that he be paid the required sum of money.

Within hours King had become a viral meme sensation, which soon resulted in numerous reality TV show offers.

“I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks,” he tells Vanity Fair. “In the old world of TV it was The Carol Burnett Showand these fun, light-hearted shows that weren’t all crime-related. You see the attractiveness of HGTV today. People love Flip or Flop or Fixer Upper. Let’s just say it’s going to be a show about hosting crazy events — what it takes to make them happen. There will be cliff-hangers, and you’ll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off.”

King has also been offered the chance to star in multiple water company marketing campaigns.

And so we come full circle.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
