Hollywood is the perfect example. You had a bunch of people, unbelievably ego-driven, ego-ridden, ego-filled. Power brokers, power mongers, betrayers, cajolers, all of these people sitting on top of what really wasn’t a huge industry. Kind of a meh industry, but it had a lot of social capital. To be a producer meant something. And then here you have this company of a few hundred people, now a few thousand people, who were like, “Yeah, I’m just gonna charge eight bucks a month and I’m just gonna completely fucking blow it up.” And so when it happens, it happens fast. And maybe we’re the version of the eight dollars a month.
