Fyre Festival's Iconic Andy King Is Coming To Australia
When Fyre Festival played out, the world was collectively shocked to see how quickly shit can hit the fan.
Then, when Netflix released a documentary into said festival called FYRE - The Greatest Party That Never Happened, people were blown away with just how deep the rabbit hole went.
While there were plenty of stand outs from the doco, only one person received iconic status and that was Mr Andy 'Sucking Dick For Water' King.
King is famous for being willing to literally suck a dick to fix an issue with the festival's supply of water.
Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland had reached out to King to save the day, asking him to perform oral sex on the Head of Customs after they asked for $175,000 (£130,000) to release four 18-wheeler trucks filled with Evian water.
"I literally drove home, took a shower, I drank some mouthwash," King explains in the documentary, completely deadpan.
"I got into my car, to drive across the island to take one for the team. And I got to [the customs officer's] office, fully prepared to suck his dick."
Fortunately, King did not have to. The customs officer, it turned out, 'couldn't have been nicer'.
Well, if you were a fan of the guy, then you'll be pleased to know that you can see him in the flesh when he comes to Australia for Brisbane's BIGSOUND festival.
It's part music festival, part conference happening from 3-6 September.
BIGSOUND says: "Ironically, Andy runs a zero-waste event company that integrates environmental and social impact at every brand touchpoint.
"Andy's latest passion is partnering with global brands and music festivals to prioritize sustainability and creatively engage audiences with sustainability messaging."
Hopefully he'll chuck in a dick sucking joke here or there to keep the audiences entertained. He might even spill some more secrets about what it was like working with Fyre Festival.
Funnily enough, after his meme became famous, King was approached by water companies to start in some ads, naturally - because who wouldn't want to align their brand with a guy that was so committed to getting the people their water, that he'd have... Well, you know.
While he stressed he won't be 'launching a handbag line or makeup', King did say he's grateful for the viral fame he's found from the doc, adding: "I think I'm being given a platform that a lot of people, at age 58 especially, don't get the opportunity to have. And I'm kind of excited about it."
So, book your tickets if you want to see the man, the myth and the legend in person.
