Will the name Russell Horning one day become well-known outside the realm of the internet? Well, according to the teen, it’s just a matter of time before he’s making that Tinseltown cash. “The big, big money isn’t rolling in yet but it’s coming for sure,” he told the Daily Mail in 2019. “But that’s the least of my worries, I’m just trying to have some fun, make some content for my supporters.”
Whether the Backpack Kid fades away or is really here to stay remains to be seen. However, we hope Horning manages to achieve his dream and crack Hollywood — if nothing else, to see what other crazy-expensive jewelry he’ll have custom-made.
