The YouTube Story
Romell was a mischievous boy, who used to play pranks on his friends. He befriended Jay Swingler, who was gaining prominence for his comedy videos on various social media platforms. They both decided to create a channel on YouTube and post both comedy and prank videos on it.
They then created their channel ‘TGFbro’. The first video they posted was a challenge video titled ‘The Laughter Challenge.’ In the video, they both were seen laughing without any reason. In one of the videos, they took up the famous ‘lemon challenge’ in which they tasted a variety of lemons. They once again posted a similar video in which they used chilli instead of lemon. They tasted a variety of chillies, and as expected, by the end of the video, they were left in a state of discomfort.
The channel has numerous challenge videos featuring both the YouTubers. In one such video, they challenged each other to taste lemon and vinegar without throwing up. They have even tasted pet food in one of their videos! In one of their most famous challenge videos, ‘The Make Them Move Game,’ Romell was supposed to make people smile or cry by singing them a song. In another video, they once again challenged each other to do the maximum number of push-ups. They once shot a video while they were drunk.
One of their most popular videos is ‘The Superglue Game’ in which Romell glued random objects on Jay’s body. In ‘The Patience Test’ challenge, Jay had a hard time distracting his partner while Romell was playing a game on his mobile phone. They then posted a series of question and answer videos where they answered many weird questions posed by their fans.
Romell created a separate channel on May 31, 2016. The first video that he posted was titled ‘Insane Watermelon Jelly’ in which he made a huge jelly ball inside the shell of a watermelon. In the next video, Romell read some strange fanfiction. One of them even stated that Romell died after a car accident. A few days later, he was requested by his fans to post photographs on his Instagram account. Romell then clarified that the account was hacked and that he would be back on Instagram as soon as the problem gets fixed.
A popular video series posted on the channel was shot inside a multi-million dollar mansion. He posted the series on both the channels and was seen partying and playing games inside the mansion. While playing one of the games, Romell and Jay accidentally entered the premises of a private property and were arrested.
Romell once explored a haunted tunnel and used his experience in one of his prank videos to scare Jay and his friends. Romell then showed his creative side when he turned an abandoned house into a go-kart track. He then took up a challenge in which he tasted volcanic curry, the hottest curry ever made.
