Bar Calls Out Instagram Influencer For Requesting Freebies
Social media influencers have been popping up all over the place during the past few years, seemingly growing stronger by the day.
But some influencers end up getting it oh so wrong - like this guy, who tried his luck with the wrong bar.
Jarra Sherlock cheekily got in touch with Bulletin Place in Sydney, Australia, asking if they wanted him to pop down for a few freebies in exchange for some Instagram posts promoting the bar.
It's not a new concept, and many bars and restaurants now do this in place of traditional marketing. But not all establishments are into the idea - including Bulletin Place, it would appear.
Posting screenshots of the exchange, Bulletin Place wrote on Instagram: "Such a shame we're so irrelevant. How are we ever going to popular..."
The first screenshot revealed Jarra's original message, which read: "Hey guys I really like the look of your bar and have never been before, it would be great to promote you on my Instagram, all my followers are Sydney based so you would get lots of interaction."
Playing dumb, the bar replied: "That would be great. Thanks!"
That's when Jarra explained what he meant a little more explicitly, saying he could 'do a couple of posts' for them in exchange for drinks.
The bar said: "Yeah nah lol.
"Good luck with your influencing mate."
Jarra hit back: "Cheers bruzzy. Good luck with ya bar."
He added a crying with laughter emoji, before continuing: "Never actually seen your bar, I'm booked out anyway with all the other relevant bars in Sydney."
Bulletin Place replied: "We were just listed in the top 100 bars in the world. 'Booked out' - I'm glad margaritas can pay the rent, you peasant."
That was the bit that really got to Jarra, who insisted he DOESN'T EVEN DRINK MARGARITAS!!! Get that, Bulletin Place.
He said: "Hahaha I don't drink margaritas I'm not a homeless c*** or a pussy.
"Good luck with your s****y bar that you think is so great but no one knows about.
"Anyway I've got more relevant bars to talk to, thanks for messaging back though with such a nice response."
Jarra signed off with a heart emoji, which was cute.
Bulletin Place then updated its bio on Instagram to quote Jerra, saying: "'Irrelevant bar...' @jarra_sherlock12 - Influencer, 2019."
The bar's followers have praised the gaff for the way it handled Jarra's request, with one commenting: "Absolute classic."
Another said: "This is the sort of place I want to drink in."
Jarra appears to have changed his Instagram handle following the online spat.
