Harry Potter has become an unmatchable character in the world of fiction! The bespectacled fictional boy has brought fame and recognition to not just his creator or his onscreen portrayer but to everyone who has touched upon his classic tale. And YouTuber Jonathan Charles Cozart is no exception! Known by his pseudonym, Paint, when Cozart uploaded the video ‘Harry Potter in 99 Seconds’ in July 2011, little did he know that it would change his fortunes forever. The video instantly became viral and established his reputation as a prominent YouTuber. Following the unanimous success of his Harry Potter video, he came up with the ‘After Ever After’ in 2013. This video too was extremely successful and further cemented his reputation as a renowned YouTuber. He followed it up with a self-introduction video ‘ME ME ME’ that won him 1 million subscribers on his channel. He soon doubled his subscribers when he came up with the sequel video ‘After Ever After 2’. Taking his popularity to the next level, Paint created another channel, ‘Paintchips’ to upload vlogs. He uploaded the first video on his new channel on October 5, 2014. As of April 2017, he had almost 4 million subscribers on his main channel. Besides YouTube, he has a huge fan following on Instagram as well with more than 298K followers.
- Unlike other YouTubers or vloggers who post a string of videos before tasting stardom, Paint struck success early on when he uploaded the video ‘Harry Potter in 99 Seconds’ in 2011. The video was immensely lauded by viewers and went viral in a matter of time. Prior to this, he had uploaded his debut video ‘Share the Love—Original Ukelele’ in February 2010. In 2012, he garnered more limelight when he auditioned to be on ‘Glee.’ Though he did not make it to the show, he went far enough to make himself a household name. Coming back to posting videos, Paint’s March 2013 video ‘After Ever After’ became even more famous than his Harry Potter venture, thus augmenting his popularity by leaps and bounds. Soon after, he came up with a self-introduction video ‘ME ME ME’ that helped him gain 1 million subscribers. On August 22, 2013, Paint created another channel called Paintchips to upload vlogs and uploaded the first video on October 5, 2014. The channel currently has over 500,000 subscribers and gives him a platform to interact with his subscribers and reply to his fans. The same year, he uploaded a video ‘After Ever After 2’ which helped him reach 2 million subscribers soon enough. In August 2015, he initiated a one man-one hour show at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. He also conducted a show in London, England titled ‘Laughter Ever After’, during which he sang his classics and talked about his experiences as a YouTuber.Recommended Lists:
