How often do you get a person you look up to appreciate what you do and publicly announce it in the world wide web?

Ever heard of the $21,000 first class plane ride experience? Yup. That’s Casey Neistat. And ever since then I’ve been following and watching back all his vlogs and envied how he makes videos for a living. I love videos, and it just seems like a great idea to create a lot for you and your friends to look back to when aging hits you bad. Which is why I created this personal video for my year 2016.

Through my friend, Kevin Yadao, who spent his new year down in NYC, I opted to send some goods over to Casey in his office address – fitting for a guy who makes a living doing what he loves, amaryt? The night when Kevs arrived back in Manila, we met up and exchanged stories like we usually do when I suddenly got a lot of notifications from the @lovearmy Twitter account. People kept tagging and eventually I saw it.

Stoked! The next thing I know, Casey wore it in an episode featuring the Nintendo Switch with Shonduras.

Moreover, The Verge and Shawn also made videos of it featuring Casey wearing it!

Needless to say, we’ve opened up delivery options to more nations now via DHL option.

I’m sharing this to let you guys know that sometimes, you just need to take that extra step. Who knew a simple parcel to show appreciation and a bit of fandom lashed back quite beautifully. Keep on doing what you love and believing in yourself as you do it. Great things happen that way.
