How does the Cameo-like app work?
Cameo is mobile app and website that connects C-list and B-list celebrities from the music, sports, and film industries with fans who would like to receive personalized video messages or send them to their friends.
This app allows users to wish their friends a happy birthday with a personalized video from, for example, Snoop Dogg. Prices are different for every celebrity and range from $15 to $10,000.
How to get a shoutout from a celebrity?
A shoutout can be defined as an acknowledgment by a person of another’s presence, social status, or accomplishment. A shoutout can be given through various channels such as social media, emails or text messages. Celebrities often use their power to give shootouts to fans who are influential in their industry.

Thrillz is a website made by fans for fans. Unlike Cameo, it is available in the UK as well as the US and other parts of the world and was created to give fans “direct and instant access to the people we admire”.

Celebrities have been the most wanted people in the world for a long time. Fans can meet their favorite celebrity, or even shout-out to them, by using this app. The app will organize a live video call with the famous person and you can talk to them in real-time.
