  • Many of Zaid’s initial videos contained profane language, but they still managed to earn significant viewership. However, Zaid was not satisfied with his reach. In an attempt to increase his viewership, he began making family-friendly videos. This turned out to be a beneficial move, as it boosted the number of “views” on his channel. Zaid has now deleted all his videos that contained profanity. The first video he uploaded was named ‘Your Profile Picture is Cute.’ Eventually, he began creating more relatable videos, especially on the lives of “brown” people. In 2015, he posted the video 'When you use a bollywood dialogue in real life..,' which made “Bollywood” actor Sonakshi Sinha "tweet" about it. Sonakshi’s “tweet” made the video viral, and Zaid’s popularity soared. His prank videos titled ‘PILLOW FIGHT PRANK!’ and 'WEED PRANK GONE WRONG!' have both earned over four million views and have made Zaid a popular "YouTuber." To date, the most-watched video on his channel is 'FATHERS DAY SURPRISE!,' which has over 4.7 million views.
