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.
Hire this man, Gunn!

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.
