Considering his vast and ever-increasing fan base, W2S easily belongs to the class of the most successful British YouTubers. The career which kicked off in his early age hasn’t only made him famous; the chap’s fortune has been soaring over the years. Known in some quarters as Wroetoshaw, W2S’ birth name is Harold Christopher George “Harry” Lewis.

W2S has always done things that gain him the attention of the public – both for the right and wrong reasons, let’s dwell on the latter a bit. Once upon a time, he forced his followers to take a look at his bum as he shared a picture of himself naked. Those who asked, “what was he thinking”? dropped their jaws when pictures of his scrotum appeared on his Twitter handle. It was soothing to learn that the account was hacked but then, the fact that he had pictures of his testicles on his phone made people repeat the question – what was he thinking? The matter didn’t get any better when the YouTuber proclaimed that they were his balls.
Another instance was when he had everyone believing he had acquired a Ferrari 458; this was in November 2014. Shortly after, he confessed that the rose gold-tinted car wasn’t his and that he only rewrapped the car he borrowed to have the rose gold colour. In all, W2S is a jolly fella, and there are a good number of things worth knowing about him. Find answers to some of the questions often asked about him below.
