Inbetweeners Star James Buckley Could Have Made Over £300,000 Selling Video Clips To Fans

Inbetweeners star James Buckley is believed to have made over £300,000 selling personalised video clips to fans.

The 33-year-old - who plays Jay in the comedy series - set up a Cameo account last year. The idea is that people send detailed requests along with the fee of £41.25 (and £55 on the iPhone app) and then you get the video link within a week.

On Cameo it can be seen that 2,675 people have left five-star reviews meaning that if every one of them are thanking him for a clip he would have made £110,343.

According to the Daily Star, only around a quarter of customers bother to leave a rating on the site - meaning his earnings could be much, much higher.

The Guardian reported how Buckley fulfilled fans' orders at a pace of 37 videos per day and, although Cameo declined to share their overall income, even if they take 25 percent it would still mean he's made around £300,000.

James' bio on Cameo reads: "Actor, Jay - Inbetweeners. I'll wish a friend happy birthday, maybe you want me to propose to your significant other 'Jay style' or perhaps you just want me to call someone busw***er?"

In a video on his profile, Buckley makes no bones about why he's on the platform as he explains: "Now, I get asked a load of times to do video messages for people, and I could never be bothered to do it, until I found out that there was a way that I could do it for money.

"So if you want me to congratulate your brother's birthday or maybe hurl some abuse at a friend of yours who's getting married or something like that - I can do that all for you now, for a fee. Again, here for the money."

Martin Blencowe, one of Cameo's co-founders said: "He's ready to do the work. He takes it very seriously. It is a job. To a certain degree."

Other big names on Cameo include Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson and Snoop Dogg. There's no denying though, Buckley is up there with the most popular of them all and he's cheaper.

Take Jack Nicklaus for example. He asks for £750 for a personalised video, Happy Gilmore's Shooter McGavin charges £165 and Jim O'Heir from Parks and Recreation will take £131.25 from you.
