The internet’s newest star may have been born earlier today – thanks to the enterprising souls on reddit one young YouTube user has experienced an explosion in popularity.
The enthusiastic C Jackson, under the pseudonym ‘Sir Fedora’, earlier posted a video heralding the fact that he’d amassed one solitary ‘like’ on one of his videos.
His celebratory post begins: ‘I can’t believe we got the one like, now I’m going to ask for something big.
Wow, one like! C Jackson celebrates his first like on YouTube (Picture: Sir Fedora/YouTube)
‘Can we hit the three to five likes? If we could get three to five that would be a-ma-zing! That’d send me through the roof.’
So reddit user ‘Dragonboltz’ thought it would be a good idea to give Jackson a helping hand.
He posted: ‘Incredibly enthusiastic, weird kid makes a video getting 1 YouTube like. Would be funny to get him a few subs(criptions) and see his reaction.’
From what seemed like quite a modest request, young Mr Jackson may well have been astounded to discover that within a few hours he had gained over 60,000 likes and 23,000 subscribers.
Jackson said he would ‘go through the roof’ if he got three to five likes. Here’s what happened when he got about 30K..
If you’re worried that this may just be another flash in the pan, 15 minutes of fame story, fear not because Jackson has promised there are more videos to come: ‘They should be out today or tomorrow.’
We’ll be waiting, Jackson. Welcome to the internet.
