Anyone who spent a reasonable amount of time on Vine must surely have across the name Brandon Bowen. The American social media personality gained fame on the internet through the now extinct video sharing platform, where he frequently uploaded hilarious and ridiculous content that made his followers go berserk, creating widespread ripples across other social media platforms.
He used his account to help make the underdogs and less popular members of society feel less disillusioned with the world around by making them laugh their worries away if only for a brief moment. Brandon was loved because his videos were not just funny for the sake of being comedic, he was also using them to address important issues like cyberbullying.
By the time Vine was shut down, Brandon had already accumulated over 3 million followers on his account. Some of his most watched videos include Young Donald Trump meets his new neighbors, Donald Trump reaching out to the teenagers, and Help. Racking up millions of views in a short span of time is nothing new to the Vine Star. He has received a number of honors and recognition for his creativity and artistry. In 2015, he was awarded the Best Viner title at the Shorty Award.

Brandon began his rise to fame in June 2013 when he set up a Vine account and uploaded his first video. His wry humor found favor amongst audiences on the platform and beyond. He continued uploading more of his funny sketches and his subscriber count kept growing as a result. While most people stumbled into using Vine, he actually set out to use the platform to counteract bullying because he knew how terrible the phenomenon was having experienced it himself.

The professional fatty as he describes himself quickly became one of the most popular Viners and kept cracking people up until the platform folded up.
