Jared Frank, the young man who was kicked in the head while trying to take a selfie in front of a train as predicted in the Book of Revelations, stands to make up to six figures from his fame.

Turns out, Frank signed a deal yesterday with Junkin Media, a viral video company that licenses “viral videos” such as BatDad and Fail Army.

CBC reports that as the deal between Frank and Junkin Media stands now, Frank could generate from $30,000 to $250,000, and there is potential for more revenue from licencing agreements.

"I'm a little worried, but I have a decent relationship with the licensing company, so I trust them," Frank said to the CBC on Monday. "I did a lot of research first."

Here's the original video if you haven't already seen it.

And you know what? Good for that kid. Sometimes people have one moment of fame and decide that they have had their share. They say, “well, gee, this was more than I expected out of life,” and move on, contributing to the world in a meaningful way. Maybe they contribute to the economy working in advertising, or go to graduate school and start a non-profit. On the other side, sometimes people take momentary, somewhat embarrassing fame, and capitalize on them for unlimited monetary gains (we often call these people “Kardashians”).

So, Frank is joining the latter group. And who are we to judge? Let this be a lesson to teens everywhere: you too can be successful for reasons that literally no one understands.
