“My dream has always been to be in the entertainment business or to be an influencer,” says Austin.
The 22-year-old says some of his favorite social media influencers are brothers Logan and Jake Paul, so when he heard that Jake was going to be in a boxing match 12 hours from where he lives, Austin says he left his job and drove to meet him.

“My intention was to meet up with Jake Paul, and I wanted to ask him for an opportunity, internship, a job,” Austin says. “I am a welder. I was making over $100,000 a year, but it wasn’t my dream. I was willing to quit my job and do whatever it takes.”
See what happened when he got to the boxing match and met Logan – a viral video that has been viewed nearly 15 million times -- in the video above. Plus, hear what Austin’s mom and stepdad say about his behavior.
