Penn State Squirrel Whisperer Inspires Vine Star Jerome Jarre

Jerome Jarre, a Vine star who currently boasts over seven million followers, has taken inspiration from Penn State’s own shining star — the Squirrel Whisperer.

Mary Krupa, better known as the Penn State Squirrel Whisperer, rose to Internet stardom in 2012 shortly after we reported on her friendships with the squirrels on campus (and the fancy hats she makes for them). Since her rise to fame, she’s racked up more than 17,000 likes on her “Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel” Facebook page, where she frequently posts her newest tiny hat creations.

That Internet fame grabbed the attention of Vine’s fourth most-followed user.

Who wouldn’t be inspired by this?

Jarre has been charming Vine users with his endearing French accent and humorous public behavior since his Vine’s creation in 2013. Some of his most popular vines show off his own animal-summoning skills. He refers to himself as the Squirrel Whisperer, and yes — even makes his furry friends little hats. According to the original Squirrel Whisperer herself, Jarre reached out to her before posting the squirrely vines.

Jerome actually contacted me first to ask if it was okay — he’s a really nice guy,” Krupa said.  

It’s easy to see that he’s a fan of Penn State’s own Internet sensation. Check out some of his Squirrel Whisperer inspired vines below:
