It was the festival gone wrong that quickly went viral and had the nation talking.
The failed Fyre Festival became so big that it spawned the Netflix documentary ‘Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.’
In this Netflix documentary, Andy King told his story and quickly became an internet sensation.
According to E! News, while thousands of attendees were stranded on the island, truckloads of Evian water got held up at customs in the Bahamas.
King knew something had to be done, so he set off and took a trip to the Bahamas to be of assistance.
Billy McFarland, the individual who put the festival together, asked King to “take one for the team,” implying that he use oral sex to help free the water from customs as opposed to paying $175,000.
King, according to the documentary, prepared to take on the task if it meant helping those in need.
However, the water was set free, and King was relieved of his head-giving duties. King yet still managed to go viral on social media for his willingness to get the job done.
Now a year after the release of the documentary, popular water brand ‘Evian’ is repaying King for his heroic efforts. The brand is honoring King with his very own custom Evian water bottle with the slogan, “So good you’d do anything for it.”
Taking to Instagram to make the announcement, King wrote, “Who’s thirsty!? ? On the one year anniversary of my doc debut, @evianwater is releasing a special bottle with a new slogan… all in honor of my infamous team spirit.”
Speaking on his bravery with the Los Angeles Times, King stated, “At the end of the day, I demonstrated something which was: You know what? Sometimes you’ve gotta do whatever you’ve gotta do to get the job done. Did I actually end up doing it? No. Would I have done it? Maybe. And in today’s culture, it’s hard to find people that are gonna go that extra mile to get something done properly. I think that really resonated with so many people.”
McFarland has since been sentenced to six years in prison and three years of probation for his involvement in creating and promoting the scam that was ‘Fyre Fest.’
