People who don’t know me often call me a trust fund kid, which I find amusing and don’t take offense to, because it couldn’t be further from the truth. Well, if you want a trust fund kid, a 15 year old Emirati kid published a video about his flight in Emirates’ A380 first class that’s… sort of fascinating?
The video was posted in March by YouTube user “Money Kicks,” who has over 750,000 subscribers on YouTube. I had never heard of him before, though based on doing some Googling, it looks like his dad is one of the richest people in the UAE.
No, this isn’t the most insightful or well produced video ever, and for that matter it’s not even intended to be a review. However, it sure is fascinating. If you have 10 minutes and want to see how the 0.00000000000001% of 15 year olds live, give it a watch:
Now of course I think a lot of us would be tempted to be mean here, but he’s 15, and you can’t blame him that his dad happens to be a billionaire. He comes across as being nice enough, though the whole dynamic of who he’s traveling with seems weird (the guy is like 40 and he refers to him as “boy,” the other guy is in business while he’s in first, etc.).
But still, oddly I enjoyed the video. Or at least couldn’t stop watching. Then again, I feel similarly about the Jerry Springer Show.
In looking at some of his other videos, this is probably one of the cheaper activities he has engaged in this year. I imagine hanging out with Mariah Carey, DJ Khaled, etc., cost his dad a bit more.
If you want an actually well produced video of Emirates’ A380, it’s tough to beat Casey Neistat’s incredible Emirates business class video:
As this kid would say, “it’s crazy,” eh?
