It’s not every day you see someone realise their dreams. And for aspiring influencer and Tourism Management student Sara Walker (24), today was the day a dream was realised.
‘I mean, music is my passion, so it’s hardly surprising, but wow. What a rush. Nineteen whole followers!’ yelled the Brisbane local to no-one in particular. You see, Sara was busy celebrating her recent realisation that her Spotify playlist, ‘~T U N E S~,’ currently has nineteen followers.
What are the odds?!
For the mildly popular Sara, she’d always dreamed of cracking 300+ likes on Instagram, or having a very successful comment on a Pedestrian.tv, but the lofty heights of a couple of followers on a Spotify playlist had always seemed out of reach.
Yet the carefully curated selection of 119 songs, dominated by modern artists such as Chance The Rapper, The Lumineers, Mac DeMarco, but with enough vintage flavour provided by Australian Crawl and Queen, is set to catapult this gutsy young woman into international superstardom.
Sara began to urgently call every one of her close friends, sharing the thrilling news that nineteen individual people had taken it upon themselves, with no apparent blackmail, to care about what she listened to.
‘Kristie!? Kristie, are you there?!’ bellowed Sara into her iPhone 6S, ready to inform her best friend Kristie Simpson (25) that she can pack up your bags, because she’s famous enough to move to Milan. Or something.
‘Hey, yep Sara, what’s going on? I’m just at work,’ responded the beleaguered Kristie, whose own Spotify account is one she still shares with her parents, hence the excessive amount of Johnny Cash and John Denver recommendations.
‘Nineteen followers, motherfucker! I’m cunting famous,’ Sara calmly stated, with her use of profanity only necessary cause the author of this article got bored and this made him chuckle a bit.
At print time, Sara is still informing a number of her friends about her newfound fame and fortune, and promising it won’t go to her head. We’re not too worried.
No more to chum.
