Stars have long used their name as a brand and social media as a platform for making money. And if earlier many celebrities recorded exclusive video greetings for fans directly on their personal pages, now they can do this in a special application called Fame. This is a project of the famous film director and clip maker Pavel Khudyakov. Khudyakov invited rapper Timati as a partner, whose main task is to promote a new application with video cards to the masses.
To date, many friends and colleagues of Timati have already registered in the application. The rapper himself is also ready to record a 15-second video congratulation in the format of stories and asks for this pleasure almost 200 thousand rubles. The creator of the project, Pavel Khudyakov, appreciated his own video postcard at times more modest – he is ready to congratulate the fan for only nine thousand rubles.
Timati has already attracted almost all of his former passions to the promotion of a new project. So, Anastasia Reshetova estimated her services at 198 thousand rubles, and another ex-lover of rapper Alena Shishkova asks for the same congratulations 99 thousand. Not without the participants in the show “Bachelor”: the winner of the project Katerina Safarova, whose relationship with Timati was more like a PR novel, is ready to record a video postcard for 99 thousand, and another favorite of the project Maria Weber asks for the same 60 thousand rubles.
For those who are not ready to fork out too much for star congratulations, the application has a separate category “up to 15 thousand rubles.” Irina Slutskaya, Tutta Larsen, Natalia Bardo, Anastasia Vinokur and Polina Askeri offer their services there.
In the network, the new project of Khudyakov and Timati has already been harshly criticized. On instagram and telegram channels, users are perplexed who exactly will order star congratulations – especially at such prices:
Lord, who cares?
I'm trying to find at least some excuse to order congratulations from these people.
200 pieces for a congratulation? I'd better go buy a bag!
This is how you have to disrespect yourself in order to pay your money to those who do not know you, for the words on duty.
The idea of such an application is far from new. 11 years ago, a similar project for video greetings from the stars was created by producer and writer Yevgeny Nichipuruk. Then many celebrities were also involved in this case, including the same Timati and the singer MakSim. However, the project turned out to be a failure due to the fact that it was far ahead of its time: at that time, smartphones were not yet the subject of mass use. Obviously, even taking into account the progress of the Fame project with such a hate in the network, the prospects are no more bright.
