Disney Exec Bob Iger at TikTok Superhero: “The world will know your name”


Julian Bass, a 20-year-old student from Georgia State University, recently posted a superb TikTok video on Twitter that shows him transforming into three of his favorite heroes – a Star Wars Jedi, Ben 10 and Spider-Man. “If you can all retweet the number of times Disney calls, that would be greatly appreciated,” wrote Bass, probably not expecting the tweet to be seen nearly 21 million times. Check it out…

And among those who watched? Former Disney CEO Bob Iger, who responded to Bass with “The world will know your name !!! Yep. Three exclamation marks, friends.

Even writer / director James Gunn praised it, with Zach Braff of Scrubs asking Gunn to hire Bass.

Iger, who has been CEO of The Walt Disney Company since 2005 and oversaw some of the company’s biggest acquisitions like Marvel and Lucasfilm, left this role last February, before Disney parks closed due to the pandemic.

About a month later, Disney announced that key executives at the company would face pay cuts during the COVID-19 crisis, with Executive Chairman Iger forfeiting his salary entirely.
