In case you’ve been wondering how you could make money for yourself, this is for you.
Remember this video of this guy calling out liars?
For those who don’t know who he is, his name is Nicholas Fraser and he lives in New York. Thanks to his viral “why the fuck you lying” videos, he now makes a living off of social media. Also, he hosts shows and sings his one song – “why you fucking lying, why you always lying, hmmmm oh my gad, stop fucking lying”.
See Kemi Adetiba’s post about him.
Social media is scary on one hand yet amazing on the other. This dude, with simply an idea and a camera phone, shot one of the funniest and most circulated memes of the year and now he’s featuring on TV shows,hosting parties and club events and generally the new IT guy. TRUST he’s getting paid. He’s probably refreshed interest, and driven up sales of the original song. But as much as social media played a huge part in the dissemination of this video and aiding it go viral, the driving force was Fraser himself. It all starts from an idea. Believing in that idea and then investing in it. Taking advantage of opportunities to make that idea a reality. And finally, making that reality pay YOU. 15 seconds and a great idea changed this guys life. The meme is HELLA funny… The story behind it, is even better ? #AnIdeaAndAnOpportunity #WhyTheFYouLying #MmmmmOhMyGod
We’re so happy for you @downgoes.fraser!
