Landon Moss is an American Instagram star, former Viner, YouTuber, actor, and social media personality. He has gained popularity for his comedic sketches which he posts on his social media accounts. A native of Virginia, Moss started off his journey towards online fame on Vine. At the height of the site’s popularity, he had over 3.8 million followers on the platform. Despite making the necessary transition to other social media platforms after Vine shut down for good, Moss has not been quite successful in replicating his achievement on Vine. He has about 314,000 followers on Instagram, just over a thousand followers on Twitter, and 180,000 followers on Facebook. Furthermore, he has more than 21 thousand subscribers on YouTube. In 2016, Moss began his acting career with the video short ‘Summoners War: Team Up’. Since then, he has appeared in another video short, ‘Leah & Chelsea Have a Sleepover’ and the TV series ‘Laff Mobb's Laff Tracks’.
Rise to Fame
As with any other person who has grown up in the digital age, Landon Moss has been incredibly proficient in using technology since he was a child. Furthermore, he has always loved making people laugh. He got the opportunity to combine the two when he set up his account on Vine.
At the time, he was a high school senior. As the basketball and football seasons were over, he would return home right after school. He noticed that one of his friends from Kansas was uploading plenty of content on Vine. This piqued his interest and after he started uploading videos on the app, it gradually became a self-described addiction. Initially, he thought it would just be a hobby, something to share with his friends.
He posted a video after American singer Ray J released his track, ‘I Hit It First’, which is presumably about his past relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian. Moss’ video went viral, garnering him a considerable number of followers. In time, he became one of biggest stars on the platform with over 3.8 million followers. At the beginning of 2017, Vine shut down. While Moss has not been as successful on other social media platforms as he was on Vine, he has been able to find a certain level of stability in his career.
Moss set up his YouTube channel in November 2013 and uploaded the first video, titled ‘Vine Compilation!! Hilarious Landon Moss Vids!!’, within a week. As of 2018, he has accumulated about 1.5 million views on the channel.
In an interview to MTV in November 2017, Moss revealed that had been working on a sitcom. He elaborated, “It’s comedy with morals — so basically another ‘Fresh Prince’, or ‘Friends’, or ‘Martin’, or ‘The Jamie Foxx Show’”.
In the recent years, Moss has become very active in the entertainment business in various capacities. In 2016, he appeared in the documentary ‘AC Green: Iron Virgin’ and in the video short ‘Summoners War: Team Up’. In the following year, he served as part of the camera and electrical department on an episode of Jordan Imiola’s web series ‘Monster Therapy’. He also portrayed a pizza delivery guy in the video short ‘Leah & Chelsea Have a Sleepover.’
TruTV’s ‘Laff Mobb's Laff Tracks’ is a half-hour series that gives a platform to the next generation of comedians. In 2017, Moss appeared in five episodes of season one: ‘Two-Week Girl’, ‘Rude or Die’, ‘Nostalgia Trip’, ‘Soul Mom’, and ‘Strong Women’.
In 2018, he served as part of the sound department and camera and electrical department on an episode of Imiola’s comedy web series ‘Spy Time’. He is also the editor of the completed short film ‘Left Behind’.
