Viggo Fandom

Viggo has a large and active fan base, offering him gifts and coming together to donate for causes such as tsunami relief.

Some worry about their Viggo obsession:

When I see Viggo's fearlessness I admire it in him and crave it for myself. The next step is to find a way to cultivate it in myself, because expressing creativity vicariously through adoring or emulating Viggo or anyone else is ultimately not satisfying.[2].
