Hi Gizmoslip! For viewers who aren’t already familiar with your content, what is your channel all about? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I do creative durability tests on the latest tech products. Mostly dropping stuff from buildings for now. 😉
How did you get started on YouTube? What was your inspiration for starting a channel that is all about dropping iPhones and iPads from 100 feet?
I got started by creating tech review videos on a different channel first. From there, I branched out and realized that I could potentially make a living from it.
Do you ever feel guilty about dropping brand-new iPhones and iPads on the concrete, knowing how coveted they are by some people? How long did it take you to get used to the pain of breaking them?
I don’t break them to make other people feel bad. I do it to entertain and bring enjoyment to others. I still feel the “pain” of breaking them, but it doesn’t bother me anymore because I know other people will enjoy watching the videos.
Where do you get inspiration for the items you are putting the iPhones in before you drop them?
Haha . . . not really. Either brainstorming or viewer suggestions.
Is there one item you dropped thinking ‘for sure the iPhone won’t break’ and it did? One that didn’t when you thought it would?
What has been the biggest change in your life since becoming a YouTuber?
I am still getting used to the free time you get. I need structure in my life, and now I have to be more disciplined myself to make that happen.
How excited are you for Vidcon? What are you looking forward to the most?
I am excited to meet more fans and other YouTubers. This will be my first time going!
