On Good Friday, a video was published on the entertainer’s Instagram channel in which TV presenter Elton visits Raab on an island and tries to persuade him to make a comeback. The two agree on one condition: If Raab collects nine million followers on Instagram within three days, he wants to appear in front of the camera again.

Three days later, on Easter Monday, it was clear: the nine million didn’t work. However, what was previously 169,000 followers has now grown to 2.8 million.
