“I just don’t wanna be necessarily known as ‘The Blowjob King of the World,’” Andy Kings says in a clip released by Netflix.
If you’ve watched the Netflix documentary about the Fyre Festival, then you know exactly what he’s talking about. Andy was one of the unfortunate people involved in the trainwreck that was Fyre, and in the documentary, it was revealed that at one point, he was asked to do drastic measures just to get their water supply from the customs office, namely–you guessed it–by giving a blowjob to the officer in charge. And out of desperation, he prepared himself to do it. Thankfully, it turned out that a blowjob was completely unnecessary, as the officer “couldn’t have been nicer.”
Best believe, the Internet didn’t take his willingness to take one for the team go unnoticed. Andy has since become the subject of many memes and his “ultimate sacrifice” has been called #friendshipgoals.

Andy admitted he was “completely blown away” by the public’s response to the documentary. He added, “I’m now a noun, a verb, an adjective. Its mind boggling.”
We can understand how it may come of a shock, seeing as it was revealed in the clip that he’s not really on social media. He said it was a surprise when someone came up to him and said he’s trending. He admitted, “I don’t even know what trending means.” Obviously, “meme” was out of his vocabulary. But he’s taking it all in good humor, and even wants to use his popularity to help people.

“After doing a documentary like this and you have your fifteen minutes of fame, what happens next?” he said. “One of our biggest goals obviously is paying back everybody in the Bahamas.” He cited the GoFundMe campaign they set up to to help Maryann, the Bahamian woman tapped to cater the festival, and how it’s so wonderful seeing the campaign has already met its goal and more.
He said they also started another GoFundMe campaign, now focused on paying back all the laborers and everybody else involved with Fyre. “If I could drive positive influences and a lot of positive energy towards social and environmental impact, then I think I can utilize this moment to do a lot of good,” Andy said.
Wow, he really is #friendshipgoals.
