Missoula's own Nerdfighter cracks YouTube's Top 100

Posted By on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 at 12:20 PM

We've written about Hank Green before, but the YouTube sensation's celebrity continues to expand. Hank and his brother John's wildly successful Vlogbrothers channel recently cracked the website's Top 100 list. The brothers—Hank lives in Missoula; John in Indianapolis—started a video diary (aka vlog) back in 2007 and, through the dedicated support of their fans (aka "Nerdfighters"), they've garnered 325,227 all-time subscribers. That's good enough to rank No. 87 on YouTube.

Here's Hank's latest video, titled "I Hung out with Snookie...Accidentally", which shows exactly why these guys are so popular—a few minutes full of quick edits, funny content and fan interaction — oh, and a song about Harry Potter. Below Hank's video is one from John announcing the duo's new Top 100 status and explaining his favorite moments from Vidcon, a recent Comic-Con-like festival for vloggers created and hosted by Hank and John in Los Angeles. (See, I told you they were are popular.)
