Normally, Kim picks the documentaries, but Andrew has a documentary this week. He picked “Fyre Fraud,” streaming exclusively on Hulu.
Back in 2017, concert promoters and rapper Ja Rule advertised a high-end festival experience on an island in the Bahamas. It was supposed to be Coachella and Burning Man and a crazy weekend in Vegas all wrapped up in one expensive, elite, millennial-friendly ball.
And pushing it all on Instagram and other social media platforms were (secretly) paid influencers like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
Fyre Festival failed spectacularly when the organizers didn’t plan for the infrastructure to support the venue, artists and guests. Instead of beautiful villas and gourmet meals they had been promised – and paid for – attendees were herded into disaster relief tents and served up cheese sandwiches.
Andrew says the key lesson from the fiasco is about the greed of social media.
