Famous Bali store owner ‘Jimmy Hendrix’ is tired of being featured in tourists’ travel videos as he loses his mind over visitors filming him for TikTok while he tries to do his job .
A popular Balinese shop owner who went viral for his foul-mouthed tirades when dealing with customers has had enough, telling visitors to stop filming him unless they buy something.
The owner, nicknamed “Jimmy Hendrix”, has run a store in Kuta selling merchandise since 2009 and recently became popular online after his trick of swearing and hurling insults at visitors was well received by Australian travelers.
Jimmy and his store quickly became a tourist hotspot, with many taking to TikTok to document their unusual customer service experience.
In a video shared online, the Balinese local looks defeated as two Australians enter his store.
Waving his hand at the two boys, Jimmy tells them that they are not welcome to film unless they are actually shopping.
“No more cameras unless you shop here,” he warns.
“No, I have money. I’m going to buy (something),” we hear the tourist say.
Jimmy then repeats his message: “Make sure you buy. »
After a brief conversation about the products he was selling, the two men begin to barter over the price of a shirt that reads “Jimmy F****ing Hendrix.”
The cameraman steps in to take a closer look, while the store owner angrily waves him away.
“Stop coming here, you idiot,” Jimmy said.

Looking rather unimpressed, the store owner offers Locky the shirt for $15.
“That’s good, brother, keep the change,” said the traveler, handing him a $20 bill.
“I don’t need a bag, I’ll put (the shirt) straight on,” he added.
Jimmy then unleashes another round of X-rated insults before the two shake hands.
“Jimmy Hendrix your (sic) legendary brother (sic) don’t go in there and record him for the views to take care of him,” the Australian vacationer captioned the video.
Social media users shared their sympathy for the local store owner, with many agreeing that Jimmy looked tired.

Many social media users sympathized with Jimmy (pictured, left), commenting that he looked “tired” and probably didn’t want to be harassed.
“Poor guy just wants to sell shirts, he doesn’t want to be harassed,” one wrote.
‘Good man. But some people just use it for videos and views and don’t buy it,” another user commented.
“Onya for buying a shirt, bro.”
A third wrote: “Nahhhh who was mean to Jimmy? Who made him feel this way?
“Jimmy looks sad, someone should ask him if he’s okay,” said another.
“I tipped him 100 before recording, he was very grateful, but he also talked about how he was fed up with phones being pointed at his face and no one coming to buy things they just want influence. I asked him if he was okay and he said he was having his days,” shared one tourist.
The video has since racked up over 2.3 million views.
