A Kick in the Head May Be Worth $250,000 [Video]
Strapped for cash? Get kicked in the head by a Canadian train conductor while taking a selfie.
That’s what 22-year-old Jared Frank did and he’s about to get some serious money for it.
According to CBC News, the video of Frank getting kicked has gotten viewed nearly 25 million times and that has management companies paying attention.
“I got all these different offers … and they were all legit,” Frank told CBC News.
In the end, the Canadian went with a California-based company.
Now, depending on some “variables,” Frank could be pulling anywhere from $2 to $16 per 1,000 views, which totals $30,000 to $250,000.
He plans on using the money on film school. If you haven’t seen the video yet, or want to give Frank a few more bucks, you can watch the clip below.
One thing is clear when you watch it: it was the conductor’s creative idea to boot the kid in the head. So, as the creative principal in this content, is he deserving of some of the money? I say he’s owed a new pair of boots at the least.
In the future, maybe a boot to the head will be the new currency.
