I Tried Being Famous For A Day And It Was Crazy

Fame isn’t as easy as it looks.

Being a celebrity seems like the ultimate form of acceptance, don’t you think? Everyone yells your name, clamors for your attention, and begs for selfies.

Se he invented an alter ego named “Nando,” an up-and-coming music sensation who gave zero fucks.

He and his “publicist,” Aria Inthavong, were ready to take the entertainment industry by storm!

First on his tour of three appearances to promote his fake album was a radio show interview, where the deejays reportedly had no clue “Nando” was not a real celebrity.

The hosts were also instructed to grill “Nando” as hard as they wanted. LOL!

The interview started out easy enough, but then the gloves came off and they hit “Nando” with this tweet that caught him completely off guard!

Let's just say “Nando” totally understood what celebrities mean when they say shit was taken out of context.

After deciding that would be his first and last interview — ever — “Nando” went to put in work on his charitable cause: educating orcas so they can improve their lives in the ocean. Yep.

Nailed it.

Just when “Nando” thought his day in the limelight had come to an end, his publicist had something intense up his sleeve: A meet-and-greet with his fans. Wait. What fans?

Oh just a group of professionally-trained actors scattered around Hollywood Boulevard who were ready to pounce on “Nando” as if he were a legit celebrity.

BuzzFeed

It was fun for a hot second, but then it got a little too uncomfortable and intense for our fake celeb.

“That shit was terrifying. I didn't love it.” But he still went with it and totally took on the alter ego to humor the crowd.

After denying a feud with Drake, and taking at least 40 photos with total strangers, “Nando’s” ride showed up and he dipped!

Truth time: It was tough having people telling you what to do and where to be all the time, every single day.

So, although Fernando thought it was cool to have the chance to be famous for a day, he decided that lifestyle is most definitely not for him.
