The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

When Anthony Padilla was 15, he was diagnosed with Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP). He couldn’t attend school as he was almost bedridden and decided to use his time fruitfully by learning to code. He found a means to connect with his friends without needing to hang out with them; he called it Smosh. His website gained so much popularity that people beyond his friend circle began using it. From 30 users his base grew to 30,000 users soon. One fine day, along with his friend Ian, he posted a video on of himself and Ian lip-syncing to the Power Rangers song. The video went viral and people began posting its link on their MySpace accounts. His Smosh video found its way to YouTube, which was then a new platform. Since paying for Smosh bandwidth was expensive, Anthony and Ian created their own YouTube channel titled Smosh. The two also took up merchandise together and sold apparel to make additional money during college. Two years later, YouTube offered them a chance to be part of its first wave of Ad Programs. Thus, they began making money on their videos. Six months later, the duo dropped out of college and took up YouTube full-time.

In 2011, Anthony and Ian sold Smosh to Defy Media. Nevertheless, they continued to stay a part of the brand as content creators. However, in the hands of Defy Media, Smosh completely deviated from Anthony’s ideas and goals. Hence, he decided to part ways with Smosh in 2017 and later became active on his self-titled Youtube channel (AnthonyPadilla). On his channel, he posts videos where he is seen spending time with popular personalities while interviewing them. As of now, he has over 7 million subscribers on his channel.

Behind the Curtains

Anthony Padilla’s parents broke up when he was two. He used to visit his father, Dan, only during the weekends. He was torn between his parents and tried to have both his parents in his life. As a young boy, he witnessed his mother suffering from agoraphobia, which is an anxiety disorder that caused her to be house imprisoned. Another devastating event as a child was watching his beloved grandmother pass away. He had to shoulder the household responsibility and got used to venturing out and buying groceries for the family at the age of 14. He spent little time with other kids, except for Ian. He was also diagnosed with HSP which has fortunately remained dormant throughout his adulthood. He dropped out of college as he wanted to pursue his career. However, at 21 he had an anxiety attack; his mother’s disorder had passed on to him. His anxiety began to govern him, as he got more anxious with time and felt that his career would get ruined because of the disorder. For over five years, he battled with anxiety and learned how to prevent it from occurring. When it comes to his love life, Anthony Padilla mentioned in his Draw My Life video that his relationship with Kalel Cullen was toxic and manipulative. Hence, he broke up with her. Kalel refuted his accusations, and took to Twitter to post about it, later resolving it by tweeting “Let’s leave the past in the past.” He started dating Miel in 2015 and in 2017, they officially announced their relationship. However, they parted ways in 2019.
