Times have changed bro. Gone are the days when one had to go from one celebrity to another (be it actor, director, producer, singer, composer, you name it) just to get a minor part in a film or television. Oh, what could people do just to get a minute of air time to showcase whatever talent they got.
But things are way too different now. You have the internet and the social media and when you’ve got these, you’ve got the power man! You think you have a certain talent, express it over the social media and if it certainly has that X factor, Boom! You go viral in a second.
Internet fame is like an earthquake, comes around with very little warning and consumes about the entire social media within minutes. And the best part? you can receive the much wanted recognition and fame even without being on television.
Don’t believe us? Let HIP give you names and see how many of them you recognize instantly. And just FYI, these people haven’t been on the television or in any movies as yet!
