YouTuber Jake Fellman has gained 1 million subscribers in less than a month, all without posting a single normal-length video, proving that short-form videos on YouTube can actually warrant massive success. 

Jake Fellman is known for his incredible 3D artwork and has built up a large following across social media. Since joining YouTube, Jake has racked up more than 2.5 million subscribers – and the last million he gained within the space of fewer than 30 days.

What makes this so impressive is that Jake has posted zero “regular” YouTube videos. Every subscriber has been gained as a result of these short clips, many of which include Among Us parodies and quirky sketches.

Jake was able to build up a pretty large following on TikTok, too, with more than 3.5 million followers, 58.4 million likes, and earning more than 50 million views on one popular clip, in particular. However, on YouTube, his most popular video has far surpassed TikTok with 115 million views.

Before he even hit this amazing milestone, Jake posted on Instagram about his journey into making his art. “I downloaded Autodesk Maya for the first time in September of 2018,” he wrote. “Starting with zero knowledge of 3D design, I taught myself the software from the ground up – practicing for several hours each day.

“In the summer of 2019, I began to learn the ropes of negotiating contracts and managing clients while sitting in my bedroom, wearing a bathrobe. Now, I live in a small Alaskan town that is inaccessible by road where I’m able to support myself financially simply through a stable wifi connection and a well-worn laptop.

“My message is that you don’t need a fancy education or 10 years of experience to win. I’m self-taught and have only been in the game for 2 years.”

Right now, YouTube Shorts are planning to rival TikTok, and might just be the best way to grow a channel in 2021. YouTube recently revealed that Shorts are hitting 3.5 billion views per day during its early test run in India. CEO Susan Wojcicki announced in a post that the company will be expanding Shorts to new markets in the coming year.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
