What fans want these days – level 2

29-04-2022 15:00

Many fans want to have something that connects them with a famous person who they like. Autographs are the most popular things to collect, and they can cost from 20 to 200,000 dollars.

Fans can buy autographs online, and the price depends on the popularity of the actor, musician, or athlete. The business is good for celebrities, but more fans now want something personal to share on social media.

A US company sells custom videos from more than 50,000 celebrities. Similar to autographs, the price depends on how popular the celebrity is.

More than 85% of customers buy cameos as a gift for birthdays or holidays. The difference with a cameo is that the celebrity speaks directly to the person. The video is unique, and it is impossible to sell it to anyone.

Difficult words: custom (when someone makes a product exactly as someone orders it), cameo (a short video by a celebrity), unique (one of its kind).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
