Kanye West made $19 million in 24hrs from Ad shot on Iphone for $0
Kanye West, the iconic American rapper and entrepreneur, achieved an extraordinary financial milestone by reportedly amassing a record $19 million within a single day.
This success was attributed to an advertisement he posted on his iPhone with zero budget. West, who recently released the highly anticipated Vultures album in collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, took to social media to share the impressive results of his Yeezy brand’s merchandise sales.
- In a screenshot of a text conversation with his chief of staff, Milo Yiannopoulos, Kanye revealed that Yeezy’s website recorded a staggering 294,357 orders, generating a total revenue of $19.3 million. The sales encompassed popular items like the Yeezy Pod, One Box T-shirt, and other Vultures-related attire.
- Kanye West, known for his creative endeavours and unorthodox marketing approaches, humorously shared his unconventional advertising strategy, stating, “And since we spent all the money on the commercial spot, we actually—we didn’t spend any money on the actual commercial.”
During the 2024 Super Bowl, Kanye debuted a distinctive Yeezy ad, a 25-second self-recorded video filmed on his mobile phone. The video showcased West, with his voice seemingly affected by newly fitted titanium dentures, encouraging viewers to visit yeezy.com while travelling in the backseat of a car.
