The white-haired producer and events organiser Andy King, made famous for promising to “take one for the team” in the Netflix documentary FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, is coming to Australia for Brisbane’s BIGSOUND festival.

The 58-year-old become a huge meme after sharing how convicted fraudster and Fyre Festival boss Billy McFarland asked him (“our wonderful gay leader”) to offer a customs official a blowjob in exchange for four truckloads of Evian water that had been seized by Bahamian customs.

While King was famously prepared to offer up his services, customs just ended up extending the deadline to pay the $175,000 bill that was owed. So that’s nice.

“My one failed blow job made me a pop culture phenomenon,” King told News Corp, “and all these kids know who I am.”

King’s deadpan delivery in the documentary became a viral sensation almost immediately after the film went live, with memes of King spread across the internet like a rolling tide. At a screening a few days before it was released, a crowd clapped and cheered as the witnessed the story for the first time.

“I just shrunk down in my seat thinking ‘Oh my word, is this what I’m going to be famous for?” he told Vanity Fair.

But King says he doesn’t regret the decision to allow the scene to stay in the final cut.

“Everyone around me told me to pull that scene because we would lose our clients. I was told never to mention Fyre Festival to anybody,” he said.

“After two weeks of listening to them… I woke up and thought ‘fuck all of you’. I worked my ass off to try to save that festival.”

King has plans to start his own music festival in the US and has since campaigned against sexual harassment in the workplace.
