YouTube Star Anthony Padilla Is Leaving Smosh
June 14, 2017  |  Tubefilter  |  See recent Tubefilter news »

For 12 years, Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla have served as an inseparable videomaking duo. On their Smosh channel, they have released more than 880 videos, which have gathered 22 million subscribers and received 6.4 billion views. For almost all of the time that YouTube has existed, Smosh has been one of its most popular channels. It has served several stints as the site's most-subscribed hubs, and was the first channel to ever achieve an eight-digit subscriber count.

It is fair to say that Hecox and Padilla's creative partnership has built the most consistently successful YouTube channel of all time, but all things must end eventually. Padilla has revealed that he is leaving Smosh to create videos on his personal channel.

Hecox and Padilla jointly announced Padilla's departure from the Smosh brand in an emotional video. "I just need to do what's best for me, and that right now is to focus on creating stuff as an independent creator on my own channel," Padilla said.

In a video he shared on his own channel, which has more than 1.3 million subscribers in its own right, Padilla added more context to his decision. "This has been something that I've been contemplating for a really, really long time," he explained. He maintained that he will remain close friends with his Smosh co-founder, whom he has known for 19 years.

They include: Not Quite Cancelled, a scripted comedy about a popular TV series that has jumped the shark; One Hour Song Machine, in which performers must create music videos inspired by random items in a box; and Operation: Open World, where Smosh Games personalities Jovenshire and Mari travel to various events across the globe like Oktoberfest and Carnival.

Smosh To Rename Secondary Channel, Add Cast Members, Bring Back Competition Series
April 18, 2017  |  Tubefilter  |  See recent Tubefilter news »

Smosh, YouTube's most indefatigable comedy brand, is getting ready for another suite of changes this summer. As a recent Mashable profile notes, the network led by Ian Hecox, Anthony Padilla, and the team at Defy Media plans to rebrand the secondary Smosh channel into The Smosh Pit, while also adding a new Smosh Games cast member and bringing back an inter-network competition series called Summer Games.

The new name of The Smosh Pit will match that of a web series that ran for more than 200 episodes between 2011 and 2015. In that show, host Mari Takahashi ran through a few of her favorite items from the internet and offered commentary on them. A Spanish-language version of the program still runs on El Smosh, the network's Hispanophone channel. Defy Media has not stated whether the English version of Smosh Pit will return on the rebranded channel.

Adding new cast members will fit into Smosh's broader strategy. With recent moves, particularly the launch of a live show last year, Defy has tried to position Smosh as a "Saturday Night Live for the web" of sorts. The network's performers can express themselves through collaborative programs like the Summer Games, which pit Smosh personalities against one another. For some, such as Shayne Topp, opportunities also open up for roles on other platforms.
