Andy King was fully prepared to "take one big thing for the team."
In the Netflix documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, the festival's event producer describes the time when he almost performed a sexual act to salvage the disasterous event. King claimed Fyre founder Billy McFarland had approached him about the festival's inadequate water supply, and explained the problem could be easily fixed if King—a gay man—gave a blow job to a customs official.
"I said, 'Billy, what?' And he said, 'Andy, if you will go down and suck Cunningham's dick—who's the head of customs—and get him to clear all of the containers with water, you will save this festival," King recalled in the documentary. "And I literally drove home, took a shower, I... I... I... I drank some mouthwash. I'm like, 'Oh my gosh... I'm really' — and I got into my car to drive across the island to take one for the team and I got to his office fully prepared to suck his dick."
Though the proposed sex act was ultimately unnecessary, King has been crowned the "unsung hero" of the Fyre Festival. His shocking account has catapulted him out of anonymity and has made him the subject of countless memes:
King has now addressed his newfound social media fame, insisting he was, uh, "blown away" by the response.
"I'm now a noun, a verb, an adjective," King said in a Netflix sit-down. "It's mind-boggling. When someone reached out last weekend and said, 'You're trending,' and I'm like, 'I don't even know what trending means.' 'People are talking about you,' I'm like oh my gosh. And then yesterday, someone's saying, 'yeah you're a me-me.' I'm like 'what's a me-me?' 'No Andy, it's a meme. And they're creating ads about you.'"
King said he is now using his 15 minutes of fame to give back to the Bahamas. He spoke about the various GoFundMe pages that were created to pay back all the local laborers and Fyre contributors.
"If I can drive positive influences and a lot of positive energy toward, you know, social and environmental impact," King said "I think I can utilize this moment to do a lot of good."
