This uber bad haha but I think the first time I started really checking someone out on YouTube weekly was trough ChrisCrocker with the 'Leave Britney Alone' video LOL I thought this dude was so weird and crazy so it was kinda my guilty pleasure to watch with popcorn and all!
Later on he actually became a decently interesting youtuber, I'm kinda sad he left because of all the YouTube drama :'(
Well one of the first videos I watched was a funny cat compilation a loooooong time ago, but I didn't really know about the whole YouTuber/subscriber thing until I accidentally found amazingphil, danisnotonfire, and tyler oakley in 2014 and thought it was so cool and fun.
When I first started watching youtube, I would watch KSI, Syndicate and Ali-A. I was always being told by my friends to check out other youtubers so thats how I started watching other youtubers such as miniminter, zerkaa, vikkstar, goldglovetv, vanoss etc. But my favourite youtuber and inspiration would have to be tobijizzle.
Keepin mind that I spent most of the last 10 years without Internet except portable phone, which is mostly just email. In 2008 I was living in the deep mountains of Japan and I worked with someone from Indonesia (or something) and they told me how all they do is watch Indonesia movies on YouTube and don't watch Japanese tv , which is all I watched. So they showed me some real cheeseball movie with 2 sets of subtitles and it looked like a pirated 3rd gen vhs dump. Well after that I thought that was all YouTube, it was nothing but pirated third world movies and said to myself I'll never watch that, that's a bunch of junk. I get internet in 2014 finally and at the same time my new boss wants to use me to make PR videos for YouTube. Of course I told him the story and he laughed and said its not like that really. So I started making PR videos that went live in spring 15, but I disagreed on the direction they were going so I went on my own. Some videos I've done now were ideas the boss rejected. I don't have a favorite person because I didn't grow up with it. I look forward to the day I'm someone's favorite
I found Youtube through music videos, but the first "Youtuber" I ever watched was spinnernet1. He used to make wrestling videos and had a lot of subscribers (like 10,000), but then he deleted all the videos on his channel and stopped making videos for three years. However he recently started to make videos again.
