Default Ever wonder what people do for a living in the fancy houses?

This guy did and he was brave enough to walk up and ask them.

In the videos in the article:

1 photographer
1 trust fund child (must be nice being rich just by being born.)
2 lawyers
1 cannabis store owner

If I had the money to open a cannabis store, I could see myself selling pot, but the barrier to entry is high.

I saw this Article earlier and it pissed me off despite being very obviously edited. So they live in a nice house, does this make them somehow accountable to the public,
you’d be pissed off if someone was shaming people for living in slum housing ... so why are these people suddenly fair game because of where they live?

just because bpeoplecate perceived to have it better than you ...why does this make them a public spectacle

it’s not brave , it’s cowardly bullying

I am completely split, on the one hand I agree with what you are saying, however I also believe that that given the nature of the folk in the videos, the way the person is asking etc. isn't about making them accountable (I would like to think he got permission, but he certainly isn't showcasing those that tell him to go away, then digging through city records snd cross referencing linkedin) its purely entertainment that they are happy to be a part of.

For me the bigger benefit of things like this, always is to show folk that you don't need a silver spoon to succeed (sadly these people haven't shown this too much here with 2 out of the 5 needing college education, and a 3rd being born rich - but that's not their fault).

This is quite disgusting and is frankly shameful. I have at times in my life worked 5 jobs. This horrible man looks in need of a good wash. I worked from an early age, I don't need to qualify my existence.

Woah... not sure why people seem to be getting offended by something so silly.. so many judgemental comments... The guy who is making the tiktok/instagram vids is a locations agent who looks for new places - and is trying to keep his business going - 'what do you do for a living' is a trending question on TikTok and Instagram and he took advantage of it - . I'm quite sure those that appear in it are happy to be doing so - otherwise he wouldn't have a business any longer, he would be getting restraining orders against him showing them - hence why he wrote this!

Vankampen went on to say that for the most part, the home owners have been friendly, but that some people obviously don't want to be filmed.

"In that case, I never will film them or share the videography," he said, adding that he never tresspasses and that everything is done with complete consent.

The comments are aimed at the guy who produced the video...I don’t see what is wrong with that. The guy put it on the internet...he should expect such ‘judgemental’ comments. I don’t suppose he is bothered as long as he is getting hits on his video, thus making money out of it.

I'm afraid if a random stranger knocked on my door and asked me what I did for a living, he/she would either get 'mind your own business' or 'f*** off', depending on what sort of mood I was in at the time

So some people live in fancy houses like others would like to. Who cares and why do they care?

Right at this moment I live in a house that people would love to live in down south. A nice little 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with 2 car garage and 3./4 of an acre. I would sell it in a NY minute to have this morning's diagnosis of my daughter be cancer free instead of the lung cancer they were talking about yesterday. Having a house does not make a life better.

This guy asks a similar question to drivers of luxury cars via Tik Tok. He's very popular and I enjoy listening to some of the replies.

I am so sorry to read this Rete. I truly hope that she is given the all clear.

This is terrible Rete, I can't imagine how worried you must be. I will keep you both in my thoughts, wishing you every bit of good luck in the world xx
