Fellow influencers like Jimmy Donaldson, known as MrBeast, and Dream responded, imploring their own fan bases to like the tweet. The competition was close with Jonathan Schlatt, known as streamer JSchlatt, but by the time the contest closed two days later on Saturday, Corpse had won out with over half a million likes.
Fans also flew a banner over San Diego to promote Corpse's latest singleIn January, Corpse tweeted that he had added his song "Agoraphobic" to Spotify, which his fans have already listened to over nine million times.
On February 3, Em, who runs the fan account @WESTCOASTC0RPSE on Twitter, tweeted out that they would be raising money to have a banner promoting "Agoraphobic" flown over San Diego, Corpse's suspected home town. The community needed $595 to fly the banner for around 15 minutes.

"It turned into a really great way for us to do something fun as a community while also giving back and putting a little positivity into the world!"Over the next two weeks, the stans went into action, gathering what was needed to get the banner up. On top of that, $1,558 was raised on PayPal to go to the National Fibromyalgia Association since Corpse in the past has tweeted that he deals with the condition.
"Em wanted to take this to the next level and cause some real-life chaos," Spoons, a Corpse stan on Twitter who helped set-up the charity PayPal and the banner, said.
On Sunday, the banner flew over the Sizzler's Steakhouse in San Diego, being caught on video by some of Corpse Husband's fans. #CORPSEINTHESKY trended on Twitter, with fans exclaiming their excitement over this physical embodiment of their adoration for the content creator.

"He's a sweetheart and I really vibe to his music," Emma said of her feelings towards Corpse. "I think everyone joined it because it's an absolutely insane idea and if it happened it would be hilarious, but also because it was an opportunity to donate to a cause that helps those suffering with chronic illnesses."
