It was quite a week for Kieran Williams who filmed one of the most widely watched videos of a couple romping on a RyanAir flight.
Kieran, 21, was on his way to Ibiza when he was gobsmacked to see two passengers on the budget airline begin grinding in their seats, in full view of everyone on board.
Kieran explained that the man had called out, “Has anyone got a jelly?”
He assumed he was joking but ten minutes later the passengers were shocked to see the man and the woman going at it in their seats.
He said: “I had to get my phone out.”
Kieran filmed two videos of the couple and the hilarious reactions of their fellow passengers.
As soon as he landed, Kieran got in touch with us by sending a story form through our website. He asked whether we thought his video could make any money.
We immediately advised him to not post the video on social media or share it with his friends on Whatsapp as we didn’t want anything to ruin his exclusive.
We placed the video with the Mail Online where it racked up an astonishing 1 million hits. Because of the video’s fantastic performance, we were able to secure Kieran a great fee.
We then offered the story to papers and were delighted when it appeared in The Sun, The Daily Star and The Daily Mirror, all adding up to a bumper fee for Kieran who had the wit to film the raunchy antics.
