Water Brands Are Clamoring to Get Fyre Festival's Andy King as Their Pitch Man

Fyre Festival's most famously, ahem, loyal employee Andy King has water companies' attention.

Andy King, producer for the doomed Fyre Festival, went viral after he admitted in the Netflix documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened that he was willing to perform oral sex on a customs officer in order to retrieve four truckloads of impounded Evian water.

King said that, at Fyre founder Billy McFarland's pleading, he would have done it to save the $175,000 that it would have cost to retrieve it — and in turn save the festival.

King's eyebrow-raising loyalty made him an instant viral sensation, the centerpiece of endless memes. And amid his newfound fame, King revealed to Vanity Fair that he's been inundated with offers for TV shows and endorsement deals from water companies.

“I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks,” he told the publication. “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 cliffhangers, and you’ll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off.”

As for the offers from water brands, he said, "I can’t talk about it too much." 

But it seems promising — after all doesn't Fiji Water need a new meme-friendly spokesperson right about now?
