Fake Band Fakes Followers; Lands Real Tour

It went over about as well as you were expecting.

Salient points:
- L.A.-based act and self-professed multi-instrumentalist Jered Threatin uses bought fans, bought views and a made-up agent; manages to book himself a multi-date European tour.
- After night three of small venues opening their doors to zero fans, and the opening acts talking amongst themselves; he is outed as... absolutely nobody.
- He appears to be a website, budget videos, lengthy interviews about his process and YouTube crowd footage showing nothing but shoulders.

Famous now, I guess?
