Kevin Tenglin Won't Be My Friend.
Last week the new iPhone x Facebook commercial popped up on TVs around the country. Guess the level of the stoke-o-meter around Vans when everyone saw the kid doing the handplant wearing our kicks? High, bro. Emails were sent. I had to get to the bottom of it. How did this happen? It turns out that the Facebook profile featured in the commercial is a REAL profile, and the pics featured in the iPhone ad are from that user's profile. Kevin Tenglin is a star. Yes, I easily found him both on Facebook and Myspace and verified that he is a live fella. I sent him a lovely friend request and asked him a couple of questions about his newfound A-List celebrity status, "Have you been to Hyde, yet? Are you on the list? Who’s your agent?" And what do I hear back from him? ZILCH! I see that it's all going to his head. Not only does Mr. Tenglin not answer my carefully crafted interview questions, he does not accept me as a friend! It's been a week. He's obviously not getting my emails because he's too busy jet-setting around the globe on a jet with jet-setters. Check out the iPhone commercial here: iPhone Commercial.
