According to Tube Filter:
Jarre’s Vine updates were a little more singular, as he used his talent for bothering people in public to create Vines where he bothered celebrities in public. His best one features Pharrell Williams, who can’t help but give the camera shifty eyes when accosted by a singing French dude.
Jarre and fellow Viner Marcus Johns were on the red carpet as social media consultants for Fandango this year. Jarre was hilarious and showed no boundaries when interacting with the stars, he even gave Mario Lopez a Wet Willy.
