Words by Liyora Santos for OAP x Mig.Me PH feature of the #YouTubeFanFest Manila
YouTube FanFest is a regular event the brings together YouTube's most popular personalities in a one-of-a-kind live show. The most recent FanFest was held in Manila last June 27, 2015 and featured acclaimed YouTubers from around the world--including the Philippines--in front of a sold-out crowd of 3,000 excited fans!
Check out some scenes from YouTube FanFest Manila...
Many fans were eager to see their favorite YouTubers perform. It's no surprise then that tickets sold out in under 10 minutes! One group of boys in particular had everyone's attention--Caspar Lee, ThatcherJoe, and OliWhiteTV--also known collectively as #jaspoli!
These stars have grown famous on YouTube for the past several years. Bethany Mota, for instance, has been using YouTube for the past 6 years and is the most-known YouTuber for beauty!
One video they posted recently that was shot in Manila is a challenge video called “The Buckeroo Prank/Challenge”. This was a twist on the game Buckeroo, where instead of putting items on a donkey, Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee had to put items on Oli White--while he was sleeping! The person with the most items wins, but if an item falls off, the owner of that item loses the game.
The reason why these boys are so funny is because they always make fun of serious situations. They also give off a kind vibe, which just adds to their appeal.
