What Do All These Germs Mean for Influencer Houses?
Let’s talk about the bad stuff. I know, I know, it is not the most desirable thing to discuss, but there are times when the suboptimal is the norm. Now is one of those times. So, in an attempt to get all our nasty little ducks in a row, let’s make a list of our feathered friends.
Bad Stuff List from A Californian’s Perspective
- Global Pandemic
- COVID-19 seems extremely comfortable in the U.S.
- California is experiencing extreme weather (We are mostly used to the sun and a little rain, not electricity from the mighty hands of Zeus)
- As a result of the lightning bolts, most of the state is on fire.
- The Sway (influencer) House has no power.
Solutions for The Bad Stuff
Phew, that was tough. But doesn’t it make you feel better to see it all in front of you? It’s just five things. That’s it. I know, some of them seem insurmountable, but we’ll get through this together. In fact, why don’t we make another list about how we can get through all this stuff.
Solutions for The Bad Stuff List from A Californian’s Perspective
- The best course of action for the Global Pandemic is to wear a mask, stay six feet apart, and wash your hands frequently. Solved. On to the next.
- Repeat step one. Solved.
- The thunder and lightning have passed. Solved.
- Our brave firefighters, and other first responders, are out there protecting us. Thank you. Solved
- Stop throwing massive parties at influencer houses. Start wearing masks and social distancing. Pay attention to public health orders.
Number 5 (The Influencer House)
Numbers 1, 2, and 4 take a large collaboration of people working together to put a stop to something that threatens us as people. We need to work together to stop COVID-19 and the fires.
Number 3 is based on how Zeus feels about us. The lightening has stopped, so I’m led to believe he’s okay with us right now.
Number 5, well, number 5 just takes the collaboration of three TikTok stars, Bryce Hall, Noah Beck, and Blake Gray of Sway House—a well-known influencer house—working together to not throw massive parties.
What? How could you expect that of those young men? They want to have fun. They want to be influencers. They want to party and celebrate being alive for twenty-one years. They want to be entertained by male and female strippers. How can you expect them to be wearing masks, let alone social distance? Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti should be ashamed of himself for ordering that their power be shut off.
Oh, no, wait a second, there’s something wrong with that last paragraph. All of it. That’s right. Every single word.
Mayor Garcetti did the right thing. On August 4, the public health department issued a warning stating that gatherings of people not properly distanced and wearing masks put those people at high-risk of contracting COVID-19. Then, two days later, Garcetti announced a Public Order. What was the Order? It’s quite simple. You host a large gathering and the city will shut off your utilities. Sounds fair.
Then, two days later, Bryce just couldn’t take it any longer. He needed to party. So, he threw a party. And why not, he had made it a whole two days since the Public Order. And then the LAPD showed up and shut off the utilities. Just kidding, they didn’t shut off the utilities, they just posted a warning of the Order violation. The next day, Bryce publicly apologized on TikTok for his irresponsible behavior. Just kidding. Got you again.
This time Bryce and his buddies made it a week. And then Bryce turned twenty-one years of age. If you don’t already know, twenty-one is the legal drinking age in the United States of America. Well, if that isn’t cause for a large gathering during a pandemic then I don’t know what is.
Friends were contacted. Alcohol was purchased. Strippers were booked. Done, done, and done.
The party raged all night until the wee morning hours of August 15. Then at 4 a.m. the LAPD showed up again and posted a final notice. Garcetti then authorized the city to shut off the power at Hall’s rental in the Hollywood Hills.
The rest is utilities history.
Where Do the Influencer Houses Land?
So, what do all these germs mean for influencer houses? They mean the same thing for the houses that they do for all of us. The houses should be fine, just as long as they act like we are all supposed to be acting, you know, masks, distancing, etc. I understand that sometimes it is hard to follow the rules. On one shoulder you have the angel squeaking in your ear, “don’t throw a large gathering.” Then on the other shoulder is that dude dressed in red, “oh, just throw a large party, come on, you are twenty-one. Who cares about that stupid pandemic and the human race? Ugh, what do they matter?”
But there are many other humans who do care about the human race, and if those humans who care are in positions of political influence, they could be able to shut off your power. It might be good to just wear a mask, social distance, and yes, follow the rules, so then when you want to throw a party, you don’t have to worry about your power being shut off because all those damn germs have gone away. Problem solved; influencer houses saved. You’re welcome, Bryce.
