What started out for Jared Jacobs as a simple hobby has turned him into an internet sensation. With Lego pieces, a camera, a sports replay moment and patience, Jacobs can produce a video for you.
His popularity took off when he recreated a scene from the Television show “Breaking Bad” and posted it to his Instagram account with the hashtag “Breaking Bad” and went to sleep. When he woke up the next day, he found out his video was shared by one of the actors of the show and he had become popular literally overnight.
“This has just been something that I do on the side,” said Jacobs. “But now that it’s gotten so much attention and now that I get paid to do videos, it’s kind of taken on a life of it’s own.”
Jacobs funds his own Lego’s but his popularity came through him sharing videos on social media and celebrities responding to them and sharing them on their social media accounts. Sports Center even featured one of his videos on their program.
Jacob’s is unsure about the future of his stop motion video career but will take it one at a time and move forward.
