This Guy Is Making $25,000 For Every Funny Cell Phone Video
Jerome Jarre was relatively unknown French businessman just a few short years ago. He’d just learned English and moved to New York with only $400 to his name. However, after posting humorous videos on Vine shortly after the video-sharing app’s launch, his videos went viral. He has since been on Ellen and made videos with many Hollywood stars.
Now helmed as a “Vine Star” himself, Jarre’s has over 8 million followers. He is a 20-something celebrity in his own right and even turned down a million dollar deal with “an unhealthy food product” brand to pursue a bigger purpose. He credits social media with helping him find his purpose to help others. While most people will never see an income like Jarre’s from making six-second videos on Vine, it is definitely an interesting phenomenon to take note of.
