This #FyreFestival Netflix documentary IS F&%KING INSANE.— dani seeks angel of music 🌬🌙 (@CardiganVixen) January 21, 2019
This is a literal case study in manipulative narcissism and a toxic work environment #FyreFestival— Sabah Malik (@sabahbanomalik) January 21, 2019
Just watched the @Netflix documentary about #FyreFestival. So incredible that this happened. It's disgusting the amount of wasted money that was spent and the lies that were told not only to staff but to those that purchased tickets/VIP packages.— 🌹XoXo, Kellie 💋 (@XoXo__Kellie) January 21, 2019
The case study of #FyreFestival is one of the most fascinating examples to study as a marketer. On one hand...like, dishonest marketing was the catalyst in destroying the festival. But on the other...they built the entire festival on good marketing. That shit is powerful.— Nikki McCaig (@Nikki_McCaig) January 21, 2019
It's a "roller coaster" of a documentary...
This #fyrefestival documentary is like a 97 minute car crash. Billy MacFarlane truly is the douchebag's douchebag.— Darren Jalland (@larbertred) January 21, 2019
And that story about getting the water through customs! Wow!
Omg if you have IBS don’t watch the #FyreFestival documentaries - it’s a roller coaster— Sabah Malik (@sabahbanomalik) January 21, 2019
That shows you just how shallow and vacuous influencer culture really is..
Watched the #FyreFestival documentary on #Netflix. It's actually awe inspiring at how much money they just spunked and didn't get anywhere. I'd have arranged some sort of festival for $28M! The power of #socialinfluence!— Chris (@tedmcnuggets) January 21, 2019
Most people are just loving how entertaining and mind-blowing the story is...
Is it wrong that I enjoyed seeing rich white privileged kids who don't value money get played like that? #FyreFestival— 🦋 (@Ruee__) January 21, 2019
Needless to say, the film has already eared a 91% on Rotten Tomatos since it's release this weekend.
If you haven't watched it already, Fyre: The Greatest Festival That Never Happened should definitely be your Netflix homework for the week.
