He’s ready to go the extra mile! When fans of ~the drama~ sat down to watch the Netflix‘s Fyre Festival documentary, Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, nobody expected that the scandal the music festival became would also include a sex scandal. But for Andy King, one of the Fyre team members, making sure that the show must go on meant potentially trying to get a Bahamian customs official off. And in preparing for the job of a century, he decided to do a little extra work. Though cofounder Ja Rule is trying to distance himself from the mess, Andy is doing just the opposite. In a new interview with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio show, Radio Andy, the 57-year-old documentary star opened up about how he hyped himself up to go down.
“I did mouth exercises in the car all the way across the island,” he admitted. The customs official he was preparing to offer to perform oral sex on so that Fyre wouldn’t have to pay $175,000 to release their order of water was “tall and large,” according to him. And according to Fyre founder Billy McFarland, he “had an effeminate side to him,” said King. Luckily for the festival employee, though, the customs official let him off the hook sans-blow-job, instead eliciting only a promise that the fees would eventually get paid.
“Billy called and said, ‘Andy, we need you to take one big thing for the team,'” King revealed in the documentary. “And I said, ‘My gosh, I’ve been taking something for the team every day.’ He said, ‘Well, you’re our wonderful gay leader, and we need you to go down. Will you suck d–k to fix this water problem?’ And I said, ‘Billy, what?’ And he said, ‘Andy, if you will go down and suck Cunningham’s d–k, who’s the head of customs, and get him to clear all of the containers with water, you will save this festival.’ And I literally drove home, took a shower, I drank some mouthwash. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m really …’ And I got into my car to drive across the island to take one for the team and I got to his office fully prepared to suck his d–k.”
In a separate interview with the Los Angeles Times, he questioned whether or not he’d actually go through with it — but ultimately, he’s proud of the fact that he was willing to take on the task. “At the end of the day, I demonstrated something which was: You know what? Sometimes you’ve gotta do whatever you’ve gotta do to get the job done,” he said. “In today’s culture, it’s hard to find people that are gonna go that extra mile to get something done properly. I think that really resonated with so many people.”
