Jones also talked to the Daily Mail about his viral moment. “So, the last 24 hours has been absolutely crazy. I went to bed the night before last just like any other but woke up to 8k new Instagram followers. I thought it was a glitch in the system,” he told them. “I already had a fairly large following, but that rate of growth was unheard of. I had no idea where all these people came from.”
Danny Jones aka ‘Tree Man’ is a fitness trainer, former basketball player and firefighter from Southern California, USA. He doesn’t mind being called “tree man”, adding: “It’s been super fun and hilarious to see all the memes, articles and comments this is getting!”
