WHO's URMUMSYADAD?

k.s.

Kai’s got style for miles. Putting aside his high ambassador status in the fashion industry. The young lad is known for breaking the 'net by dropping signature edits of running around with his mates from Bali to Australia. Kai brings his lens with him documenting each uncanny experience around the globe. With a social media status that carries an insta army he is one of the most iconic vloggers to surface from the cyber realm. Groms love it... chicks worship it. So we caught up with him, and shot the shit asking him weirdest fan experiences to the crossroads of his destiny. - A  F

A / F :

What did you eat for breakfast?

K A I :

Ketamine. Kidding, I’m more of a kombucha kind of guy these days.

A / F :

How did you land the name Urmumysadad?

K A I :

Everyone always ask this. Short story, it was just a thing me and my friends used to say to each other as a wig out or insult to people. It kind of stuck when one day we were keeping up with the Kardashians on a bender. Then our heads exploded and we were like oh shit her mum's actually her dad. #Free #Caitlyn

A / F :

Weirdest fan experience?

 

K A I :

12 year old girls crying.

A / F :

Trashiest trend in fashion at the moment?

K A I :

Me. I look at photos from a month ago and am just like what the fuck is wrong with this cunt. Remember when I used to cut my suit pants, hem and they’d be all ¾ and shit. Showing my socks, it was full Bilbo Baggins Lord of the Rings hobbit shit.

ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA

A / F :

The last DM you sent?

K A I :

"Hey sxc bby wana root?" Jk. I avoid sliding into peoples DMs because it feels sus as fuck but I’ll generally reply to people if they’re not 12.

A / F :

What's your thoughts on social media?

K A I :

I don’t understand why people are so interested in other people's lives. I wish we could all just go back to MSN days like brb 15 mins mum needs comp type shit, stuff was way more chill back then.

A / F :

What’s one thing that most people don’t know about Kai?

K A I :

I’m actually super mellow, everything online is caricature. Also I have maximum anxiety when meeting and introducing myself to people. For the first time I was like 'ah fuck is it one kiss on the cheek or two or just a hand shake?' Fuck, wigging out man. I’m quite shy and reserved if I don’t know you and am generally only comfortable around my friends or a camera.

A / F :

You got your 4 year degree in mining engineering how does it feel to be at a crossroads between your passion and education?

K A I :

It’s a weird feeling, the kids I went to uni' with are on 150-200 k/yr. I’m on well... let’s just say I thought learning how to do a tax return would be more of a problem in my life but it turns out it’s not if you don’t make enough money like me. [Laughs]

I think the education system is flawed. You go to school to get an education, you’re told by your teacher's to get good grades, so you pick the subjects which get you good grades, but these subjects might not necessarily be the subjects you enjoy. You’re never given the chance to explore what you’re passionate about because everyone is so focused on teaching a set curriculum. Once you’ve got your good grades you’re supposed to go to university and pick a degree that’ll get you a good job, that's what I did. I studied engineering for four years because I was good at math, I did not enjoy it. It was just something I did because society told me to. It is only recently that I have found enjoyment in Film and TV. I’m not sure I regret my decisions but it would've been nice to have been nurtured other than you’re good at math become an engineer.

A / F :

You’re throwing a huge bash coming July 2018?

K A I :

I used to charge the bush doof scene when I was younger, so I’ve decided to throw my own doof in Bali. It’s going to be everything I’ve ever wanted in a festival, I’ve got some investors on board, so stay tuned...It’s happening!

A / F :

If you could go on a Free Radical trip with anyone alive today or dead from the past?

K A I :

Jesus, he would turn water into wine.

A / F :

What advice do you have for groms?

K A I :

Legit fuck everyone do your own thing, don’t get caught up in it. At the end of the day there’s always going to be judgement in anything you do. Do what you enjoy even if cunts call you a dork, a kook or a fag... fuck them. Also don’t use the word fag it’s offensive to a minority - I’ve been trying not to use it as much.

A / F :

What's next?

K A I :

Golly gosh. I’m interested in a lot of things, I want to do it all; clothing, festivals, films! AF
