Steven Jay Williams, better known by his online pseudonym, Boogie2988 or just Boogie, is a YouTuber known for his gaming videos and rants about video games. He is the man behind the super-famous fictional character “Francis,” who is an embodiment of the stereotypes typically assigned to video game players. Through this character, Williams often parodies trending video game news, nerd culture, and pop news. Francis, who is based on the gamer’s early experiences, is someone netizens love to hate and is the major reason behind Williams’ massive online popularity. With the number of subscribers on his YouTube channel ‘Boogie2988’ touching a whooping 4 million, this guy is definitely one of the most popular YouTubers in the entire United States. His videos range from absurd and hilarious rants to serious discussions about fat shaming, domestic abuse, and dealing with depression. Though a successful person today, Williams had been through some really horrible times in the past and has emerged a winner. His perseverance and never-say-die attitude makes him even more special to his fans who already adore him for his funny rant videos. He won the Trending Gamer award at The Game Awards 2016, which stands as a testimony to his tremendous popularity.
