CJ So Cool created his YouTube account in 2014. But even with his constant efforts, it didn’t work for him. He hardly received 35,000 views and not many subscriptions. It was only with the assistance of his younger brother that he took note of improving the content on his page and increased the quality of his videos.

He began by making reaction videos and later began uploading ‘Try not to laugh’, ‘prank videos’, and other comic videos. Mainly these were collaborated with his brother, Jinx, and his girlfriend, Royalty. He also became a vlogger with growing popularity and began uploading weekly vlogs and challenges with his family. However, as he became famous, he also received plenty of criticism, though less than his brother. A few viewers began a signature campaign to remove his account after he posted a video where he mixed laxatives in Royalty’s children’s ice-creams and then joked about their diarrhoea and pain. Many viewers found this offensive, because of which Royalty had to give the viewers an explanation and YouTube took quick action to remove the video as it had content against their policy.
