From his satiric recordings to his hotly sought-after vine videos, Alex Ernst is one unique internet personality who refused to follow the crowd. Rather, he has successfully carved out his own path, making himself a role model to many budding stars.

The social media giant is famed for his videos on YouTube and Vine where he uploads clips on random issues daily. Ernst’s presence was first felt on YouTube in 2009 and later on Vine in 2013. He would rise to an immense prominence after he became a contributor to the channel OurPizzaGang, which was jointly owned by a group of YouTubers. The channel stopped posting videos in 2014 but the ugly development did not harm Alex’s career as he was already popular before the incident.

Besides uploading his comedic videos on YouTube, Ernst banks as an actor as well. He made his acting debut as Hunter Wilson in 2016 with the film FML – a comedy movie that tells the story of a group of internet sensations on a cross-country adventure across the USA. Currently, he’s making waves on the internet with his friend and co-YouTube star David Dobrik.
