On October 16, during an Instagram Live, Jacob Sartorius calls out his fans who promote their content on his Instagram comment section.
First of all, it started with Jacob going on Instagram Live. After live chatting with a fan, Jacob announced that he had a favour to ask before bringing anyone else on.
And that favour was for fans to go and comment on his latest Instagram post. At the time, the post had been up for around 10 minutes before the livestream and had around 6,000 comments.
Jacob's goal? To get it up to 10,000 comments.
On the Instagram Live, Jacob says:
I “Do me a favour, before I get somebody else, let’s get my recent to 10,000 comments. Let’s do it.”
I “Everybody go spam the comments on my recent. Everybody go go go go go… Leave this broadcast, go comment, "like". If all you guys go comment right now, it’s done, I think.”
And as Jacob turns the camera towards his friend's mobile phone, viewers could see the numbers rapidly increasing by the hundreds each time Jacob refreshed the page.
In just 5 minutes, Jacob achieved his goal of 10,000 comments.
Thrilled, Jacob then goes through the comments. Unfortunately, as he's scrolling down, he spots comments from people that are promoting themselves. Unamused, Jacob says:
I “Bro, so many people promo their stuff on my account. Look at this.”
Jacob then points out a comment that says: “Just gonna say 4 things. 1. Daily memes. 2. No ads. 3. I’m public. 4. Enjoy.” (For those who don't know, this fan is asking for followers.) He then points out another who is promoting themselves as a “17-year-old producer” and are asking people to check out their page, and to those who are promoting their vine videos.
I “I need to go through and delete [them].”
Jacob then talks about an idea he had for a Tik Tok video. It involved him going around the mall and using pick up lines on girls. However, he was unsure about whether it was worth the risk since it would be odd if he walked around filming people.
I “It’s not really cool. I could get punched in the face.”
I “Especially hitting on girls, like, going up and saying really weird pick up lines and putting a phone in their face. They’re probably going to be, like, 'Get away.'”
