Social media stars, Jerome Jarre and Nash Grier, have gained enormous fame through Vine and YouTube. They were recently in Iceland where they, among other things, caused a total chaos in an Icelandic shopping mall when thousands of teenagers showed up to greet their idols. The two friends also met with Mayor of Reykjavík, Jón Gnarr.
"It was as if the Beatles were there"
When thousands of teenagers responded to Jerome's vine and flocked to Smáralind shopping mall in Reykjavík there was a total chaos. Many shop owners actually decided to close down their stores because of the excited crowd. Some injuries and damage to parked cars was also reported. The two were arrested for damaging cars and fined. Still, Jarome wrote on his twitter page soon after: "I have never been more in love with Iceland". Following are two videos of Jerome speaking to some teenagers from the top of a car.
