Fans of Dobrik, who has 13 million YouTube subscribers ,are sharing videos of themselves on Twitter, recreating an ad Dobrik filmed for the ticket selling app, SeatGeek.
In Dobrik's " GETTING MY WISDOM TEETH REMOVED!! " video uploaded in May, he recites a commonly read SeatGeek ad while on his way home from getting his wisdom teeth removed. Some fans of Dobrik shared their recreations of the video on Twitter and tagged SeatGeek's director of influencer marketing, Ian Borthwick, who appears in some of Dobrik's vlog-style videos.
"We love that David's fans have his SeatGeek read memorized," Borthwick told Business Insider in an email. "Being able to recite the read has almost become a meme, an inside joke. What other brand has its ad read memorized by fans?"
