This week we interview Matt Stopera about his amazing tale of becoming an internet celebrity in China. Also, why April Fools’ Day is the 100% worst.
Hey there fellow Internet Explorers! This week we have a really exciting episode for you.
We talk with Matt Stopera, a fellow BuzzFeed editor who recently went to China to meet the man who had his stolen iPhone and became a huge celebrity in China. It’s nuts.
Here is Matt meeting “Brother Orange” for the first time in the airport. As you can see, there’s a million cameras.
Read his story, I Followed My Stolen iPhone Across The World, Became A Celebrity In China, And Found A Friend For Life . It’s heartwarming, surreal, funny, and just plain great.
