Michael Senatore was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. About a year ago he decided to perform in his high school talent show. The tricky part of this was that he did not have a traditional talent, so he decided he would flip a water bottle and make it land. Next thing you know the video of him doing the trick is all over the internet and ‘The Water Bottle Flip’ became the next popular trend/meme. Since going viral he has made appearances on Stephen Colbert and Harry Connick Jr, as well as doing ads for LG, Red Bull, and Sheetz convenience store. He’s learned many things throughout this past year with his viral fame.
Michael Senatore shared what it is like to be viral on the internet, and how it has changed his life in his TED talk.
