Born in Queens, New York, Janky was discovered by virtual talent agency Superplastic after videos of him being run over by Cardi B’s Escalade briefly went viral.
Janky pays his rent by working as a stunt stand-in at Warner Brothers but dreams of becoming a rich and famous social media influencer. Unfortunately, most of his efforts have had limited effect, leading to a handful of C-list brand sponsorships by hot sauce manufacturers and promoters of personal lubricants.
He also dreams of owning his own label and becoming a fashion icon like his (sometimes) friend Guggimon. Janky’s unique fashion sense is mostly achieved by dumpster-diving for discarded celebrity outfits outside of movie sets. Brands including Chinatown Market, Palace Skateboards, and Billionaire Boys Club occasionally respond to him on Instagram.
When he isn’t homeless, Janky rents James Franco’s old trailer outside the Warner Brother’s studio in Hollywood, California.
After graduating from McGill University in Montreal with a double major in French romantic literature & hip-pop, Guggimon was awarded a Fulbright scholarship—which he never completed. Rumors of heavy psychedelic drug use in Oxford goth clubs and a turbulent 3-way affair with the college dean and his husband are forcefully denied by all parties.
Returning to Canada, Guggimon’s first brush with fame came after his now-legendary Axe Diary mixtapes that cross sounds bootlegged from Disney’s Haunted House with tracks from fellow Canadian artists including Drake and The Weeknd. Guggimon also earned a cult following for his line of horror-inspired designer toys created in collaboration with virtual talent agency and toy brand Superplastic.
Now more or less drug-free, Guggimon’s addiction to classic horror films occasionally leads to manic episodes where he defaces billboard ads, tags expensive foreign cars, and baits his famous friends on Instagram.
Guggimon collects axes, customizes vintage handbags, and continues to design toys in his loft in Mile-End, Montreal.
