I couldn't care less how he makes his money. He's just an entertainer in my eyes.

Meh, if someone threw me into a pot of money and all I had to do was be funny and show off, I'd have zero respect for myself.

Dude isn't as bad as some of the other people in his situation. Heck, a princess in Abu Dhabi got a custom red i8 recently and the guys on Jalopnik were gushing over it. To me that goes against genuinely lusting after something and working your tail off to get it.

If Ralph Lauren came to me with his F1 LM, I'd feel terrible if I just took it. I wouldn't feel I earned it.

I don't follow any of the russian/ME car instagram pages, as the whole trustfund car owner thing annoys me. Like you say yeah it's a nice car, but where is the achievement? A guy like Manny Khoshbin has my full respect though.

The whole pot of money thing is pretty funny. I have been asked so many times what I would do if I won a million dollars and people always look at me funny, when I say I would rather earn it. It feels so much better to me to know I made this and now I can buy x.

He says he is a movieproducer etc. I think most people who are self-employed / entrepreneurs have some sort of build in bullshit detector. On whether or not people do what they say they do or there is a different explanation. They (at least all I know incl. myself) have a very good idea of how easy it is to make that kind of money.

I can certainly understand where you're coming from. I always had the impression that the guy was born wealthy from his parents and he makes investments with the money he has -- the movie producing thing is BS too, I think, as FF says. But I don't care. Where your money comes from is private in my mind and as long as he's not pissing it away and being a complete douchebag about it, he should do as he pleases.

I like his personality a lot. He's very relatable and down to earth and you can tell he actually really is passionate about cars for what they are and less as status symbols. I like how he shares them with other people and explains how things that we normally wouldn't be privy to work -- as in the Porsche VIP Program.

Again, it all comes down to his demeanor. He's not all in your face about his wealth. There are other YouTubers who are just fucknuts that rub me the wrong way, like this kid named MoVlogs or something, where they post stupid shit like "BUYING A FERRARI WITH CASH." It just makes you want to punch them in the face.

This guy Salomondrin, though? He posts videos of him and his bros hotboxing his Model X with a fat blunt and watching the biohazard mode clear out the smoke while talking about cars. It's funny and relatable shit.

BTW, I started subscribing to his youtube channel when he only had like 13k subscribers (this is not meant to be a hipster hurr durr I liked him when he was obscure thing) because the first video I saw of him, I was hooked and knew he would become popular. You could tell he was genuine, despite being very well off. And this was just like a year ago too. His channel has ballooned since then, though it's still pretty small compared to the other big vloggers.

Smoking pot in a 100k+ SUV paid for with daddy's money and using bioweapon defense mode to clear the smoke and posting the video makes him relatable and down to earth?

In your defense though, he seems genuinely interested in the cars with relatively little douchiness.

Oh I remember this. Wasn't this posted here recently too? Thought the guy looked familiar.

It's a shame you see him that way; feels like a very negative mindset if all you can do is look down on him because he didn't bootstrap his way from poverty to wealth.

I just see someone who's enjoying life and messing around in a harmless way while sharing his wealth with his friends. Have you never hotboxed a car with your bros?

Those tits probably sag down to her knees without the bikini top.

Like I said, he's not as douchey as many/most of the other videos of similar ilk.

All I'm saying is that he's hardly relatable to me and likely most people. Entertaining is subjective, but you can have that. Again as I mentioned before, dude is living the dream and I'm not knocking that. I'm not raining on his parade.

Fat does. Not in the way of the rest of her body, but come on.

She's a pornstar, so there is plenty of nudes of her online. Have I heard from a friend, who looked for research purposes.
post #23325 of 26920

Never heard of the guy. Mind you, I've never heard of the phrase, "hotboxing a car" either. I feel old. lol!
