Beyond Fame

Despite the fact that Alex rose to fame on the looping video-sharing site Vine, his favorite social media platform is YouTube. According to him, it is because of the types of content he can work with. He says that all the content options Vine offered had already been covered numerous times by a lot of people on the platform. As such, it was next to impossible to create a video on an original idea without anyone commenting that the idea had been copied from some other content already available on Vine. Out of frustration, he decided to move to YouTube, which, according to him, offered much more flexibility when it came to topics for his videos. Interestingly, Considering that Alex had already moved to YouTube, he didn’t suffer much of a loss due to the closure of Vine.

Even though Alex is always funny and cheerful, he seems to have gone through a rough patch of depression in the recent past. He had stopped uploading videos on YouTube for almost a year. After returning, he briefly talked about it in his videos, without giving much detail. However, his girlfriend had even created a fundraiser captioned "Help Alex Holtti" in November 2016.
