Streamys 2016: YouTube Stars Reveal the Best Prank Ever Pulled on Them by Another YouTuber
The 2016 Streamy Awards was one of our favorite events of the season. Where else could you talk to basically all of your favorite YouTube stars about everything from Presidential Election 2016 to awful Halloween costumes, huh? Basically nowhere.
And you know what else we managed to finagle out of ’em? The best pranks ever pulled on them… by their fellow YouTubers! That’s right, we asked faves, like GloZell, the Merrell Twins and the Baby Bumps, what was the ultimate stunt pulled against them, and by whom? (FYI, you’ll look at Logan Paul totally differently after learning the kind of shenanigans he does.)
From YouTube to television, these nine stars broke free from social media to star on TV:
Youtube Channel: StarKidProductionsDarren Criss is one of the biggest success stories as a YouTube sensation that became a TV celebrity. As a co-founder of the YouTube channel StarKid Productions, Darren landed himself the lead role of A Very Potter Musical, which also streamed on YouTube. Harry Potter fanatics were quickly obsessed with the 23-part YT series and it went viral almost immediately. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the actor landed himself a role on the hit show Glee as Kurt's love interest. While the part was originally just a supporting character, he became part of the main cast for season three. Since then, he's co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards and scored a recurring role on American Horror Story: Hotel. Ryan Murphy (the creator of AHS and Glee) and the rest of us just can't get enough of this cutie!
