Ryan Higa (aka nigahiga) was one of the earliest YouTubers in the world. So early that his first few videos (of him and his friend, Sean Fujiyoshi, shamelessly lip-synching to songs) were uploaded to YouTube in 2006, while he was still in high school. It was so well-received that they quickly went from songs to comedy.
Oh, yes, 21-year-old Ryan has surely come a long and far way since then. To date, he has done..all..these:

Obviously, the list is endless.
(Psst. Can you spot Ryan?)
Ryan is also part of YTF (aka Yesterday, Today, Forever), a company formed by the most popular YouTubers and friends of Ryan’s such as KevJumba, Andrew Garcia, Chester See, so on and so forth. He has also worked and collaborated with other fellow YouTubers such as Wong Fu Productions, Arden Cho, Jay Park, David Choi, Kina Grannis, etc. Phew!
The “nigahiga” YouTube channel was the first YouTube channel to ever hit 3,000,000 subscribers. And by February 2012, the channel’s videos had been viewed over 1.1 billion times. And just yesterday, he released his official music video for “Bromance“! Watch it here:

Are hits going to skyrocket for Ryan or what? Is there anything that boy can’t do? And if you really, really like the song, you may purchase it on iTunes here. Otherwise, hit up (and subscribe to!) his YouTube channel for more Ryan.
Then, stalk him on his Twitter account. Do it, do it now.
But we must warn you, it
can will get addictive.
