Who would have imagined that in today’s world you can literally become an overnight sensation? Apparently it seems like it can actually happen these days; if you end up choosing the right social media site. Our top two picks for this month’s social media entertainers are: Bretman Rock, who happened to gain social media fame thanks to a great youtube video about contouring and Zach King who uploads creative vine videos that have captured enough attention to make him a well known social media figure.
There are many reasons to simply love Bretman Rock. This unique character has a voice that’s unique, a look that’s very cool and an overall following that’s huge. From Hawaii, this social media star is making big waves in the industry for a wide variety of reasons. Perhaps what makes him so unique is his goal: to push the boundaries on every topic that he comes into contact with. With more than 2.7 million Instagram followers (and a growing number) he really isn’t your average 17 year old. He has one of the largest followings on the social media site in Hawaii.
Bretman Rock isn’t someone that is shallow, though. In fact, in school, he has a solid 3.5 GPA and he’s well known as being humble and down to earth. So where did his social media stardom come from? According to the star himself, it started when he began posting video online. He first started with Snapchat before moving to Instagram. One of the most notable videos he posted was “How to contour” which landed him with millions of views on YouTube. Overall, he has three million followers.
When it comes to Vine, your man is Zach King. He has become one of the most well recognized faces of the social media video site. He also has a large following on YouTube. Born in February of 1990, he lives in Los Angeles. What makes him and his videos so valuable and important?
What he has become known for its his six-second videos that he digitally edits to make it seem as though he is doing real magic. He called them digital sleight of hand. He began producing them several years ago in 2008 and then 2013, he moved those videos from YouTube, where he gained thousands of followers, to Vine.
Why do people love Zach King so much? He’s fun and cool to watch. And, now that he is starring in “The Amazing Race” with other social media stars, it is likely more people will get to know him and what he has to offer. In 2013, he also won the YouTube channels “NextUp Creators” contest.
