15- year old Darian Lipscomb didn’t expect his Snapchat Handle to be worth 5,000 dollars; he also didn’t expect to see signs all over his town of Prospect, Virginia, saying, “Hey Prospect, does anyone know Darian?”

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Darian’s Snapchat handle, @CarnivalCruise, caught the attention of the company, who then offered a trade to Darian.

In exchange for the Snapchat handle, Darian recieved a free trip for him and his family on Carnival’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon. The net worth of the trip is about $5,000.

Organizers say Darian will receive customized surprises throughout the trip, which will be documented on the cruise’s social channels.
