That sinking feeling after you finish watching a YouTube video that you accidentally came across and realize that your entire day is about to be completely shot because now you HAVE to marathon through the channel’s entire library of addicting videos.
That sinking feeling is what inspires us.
In effort to further your YouTube addiction, I dare you to start watching HowToBasic’s channel. If you actually had places to be today, no problem. Fullscreen just built the HowToBasic iPhone app. Download it here.
The next time you make a cheeseburger, attempt to play a ukulele, or just want to clean your shirt up really quickly, whip out your iPhone and the HowToBasic app will show you exactly where to smash that egg.
To celebrate the launch of the app, we sat down with the genius behind HowToBasic for a few questions. Enjoy!
Fullscreen: We love the HowToBasic channel. Ever think of making a HowToIntermediate or HowToAdvanced channel?
HowToBasic: I’ve thought about it, and my friends and fans have suggested that I make one. But right now I’ve got my hands full of eggs with the HowToBasic channel. Perhaps in the future!
What don’t you know how to do?
Silly question. I know how to do absolutely everything!
Where did you get the inspiration for your channel?
I didn’t really get inspiration from anyone, I just thought of the idea myself. I found myself searching up How To videos, and I know that millions of others do too, so I thought it would be fun to make How To videos where I mess everything up. I had absolutely no idea it would take off and become this popular!
How much do you spend on eggs in a week?
If I told you, I would have to kill you.
Have you ever actually eaten one of your creations?
I make sure I’ve eaten before I record a video, because let’s face it, the food I make is pretty appetizing! But no, no I have not.
Of all your videos, do you have a favorite?
Yes. My favorite video would have to be How To Correctly Cook Salmon.
What are some of your favorite channels/videos on YouTube that make you laugh?
One of my favorite channels of all time is Lance Krall’s channel. His prank calling videos are absolutely hilarious and I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time!
My friend linked me to a video the other day, it made me laugh quite a bit! It’s called Troy Shaves His Face.
If you could collaborate with anyone in the world, who would it be?
I think it would have to be Epic Meal Time. Mainly because it relates to my channel in a way, and I think it would make an epic video! And basically because I just want to destroy a massive meal! I’m imagining the mess now…I hope I don’t have to clean it up!
What do you like about being a part of Fullscreen?
The thing I like about Fullscreen the most would probably be the support. If I ever have a problem, or if I just want to ask a question, I send off an email and get a response fairly quickly.
Any HowTo advice for people just getting started on YouTube?
Success on YouTube comes down to two things in my opinion: be unique, and don’t give up!
