Rise to Stardom
  • After graduating from high school, Danny Duncan started working at Walgreens. But he didn’t like his job and quit after a few months. He started his YouTube channel on March 6, 2014, and started posting videos on skateboarding or how to fix ankle injuries. Around this time he was hired to train actor Jason Lee, who was a former skateboarder himself. It was Jason who noticed Duncan’s sense of sarcastic humor and suggested that he should try acting. He also advised Danny to build his YouTube base as that would help him get acting gigs. Duncan took this advice to heart and started collaborating with his friend and fellow YouTuber Christopher Chan. His first video was ‘Steve Hamilton - "The Chosen One"’ in which he appears naked, punching a bag. This basically gave the YouTube community an idea of the videos they could expect.
  • Danny Duncan also started posting prank videos on his channel and by 2016 he started getting more and more attention for his content. ‘Falling with 30,000 Pennies’ posted on June 6, 2016, in which he pretends to fall down while carrying a box with 30,000 coins became a viral hit. The video has since become the most viewed on his channel gaining over 15 million views.

Controversies
  • Being a social media star is often accompanied by its own set of vices and Danny is no stranger to that. After publishing a video where he made a pool on the back of his pick-up truck and drove it on the highway, he was booked for endangering his own and the safety of other drivers. He also caused a stir after he jokingly gifted his mother a giant penis-shaped mailbox. He also attracted the ire of YouTuber FouseyTube’s fans after posting the video ‘Real PROOF FouseyTube is Fake! Actor Speaks Out!’, in which he exposed that FouseyTube’s pranks were all acted and not spontaneous at all. Despite all of these his fame is on the rise.
