Find out more about his quick rise to YouTube fame and what’s next for everyone’s fave characters in this Q&A!
For viewers who aren’t already familiar with your videos, what is your channel all about? How did you get started on YouTube?
In high school, I started a club where we would make funny videos and screen them every Friday at lunch. That year, YouTube was created and I thought “This is perfect! We can have the whole world watch our sh*t now!”
How do you come up with your characters?
Collectively, my channel is a satire on modern American culture derived from real life experiences. My characters are all inspired from people I’ve met in life. I don’t act funny when I play a person, I pick a funny person and play them seriously, which I think is even funnier.
What has been the biggest change in your life since becoming a YouTuber?
Youtube hasn’t really changed my life at all. I spent 10 years making videos before I was ever famous, and during that time I would watch these insta-celebs revel obnoxiously in their viral fame and I remember thinking “I hope I never become that!” I guess the only change would be often getting recognized when I go out in public. It’s the best feeling to have my hard work physically appreciated in person. It means so much more than a thousand written comments.
What’s your favourite video that you created? Why?
My favorite video would be The Tale of Wendylin Wayne. It’s DEFINITELY not my best but I have some very strong personal connections to it. It brings back certain beautiful memories and emotions I was going through at the time. It was also my first animated project.
What do you want to say to the people watching your channel? If I died today, and looked back on my life in hindsight, I would say that the deepest romance I had was my fanbase. A good spouse is supposed to encourage you, help you grow, and make you feel special everyday. My fans do more than that every hour! I love them and live for them.
What advice do you have for anyone wanting to start their own channel?
For anyone deciding to make a YouTube channel, the only bit of advice I can give is to make sure you surround yourself with people who will give honest feedback, and not just pals who will tell you you did a good job, because I can guarantee that almost anybody you know personally will do that.
You’re close to hitting the 1 MILLION subscriber mark, What can we expect next from you? How are you going to celebrate the HUGE achievement?
Haha, everyone’s asking me what I’ll be doing for my 1 million subscriber milestone. Probably nothing. I don’t like getting caught up in being proud of accomplishments, it distracts from what earned them in the first place.
Finally, what would ‘Grandpa’ like to say to all his young fans?
“Get the f??k off the computer and kick a fu??in’ ball.”
