How To Turn A DM Slide Into A Business Opportunity

If flirting is an art, most messages Instagram influencers receive on a daily basis are abstract monstrosities. However, if you are more interested in the comedic (and potentially financial) value of responding to a salacious direct message; don’t go anywhere. Why?

As you might expect, the Aussie comedian embraced this “heating up” of his DM’s, even considering the cheeky back n’ forth worthy of a standalone post.

“Did I mention you’re so much more attractive than a Hemsworth? Including Chris,” is the first message Ash receives (or at least the first one we see screenshotted).

“Thank you so much! Means a lot,” Ash replies.

To which Ash responds, in trademark style, “You got cash?”, prompting his followers to ask: “What’s the asking price going to be?”

Goals, fellas. Goals.
