Since its creation, YouTube has hit the mainstream in more ways than one. Not many people thought that YouTube would have caught on with the public as much as it has today. Businesses and corporations, musical stars and ordinary teenagers have their own channels where they upload just about anything to share with friends and subscribers. While some of the videos go unwatched, a handful of them become so popular that the people in the videos are interviewed on TV, made a mockery of with parody videos, or become pop icons. A few months ago, Psy's "Gangnam Style" video hit and surpassed one billion views. Psy's video is the first to receive that many views on one upload. We wanted to highlight Psy's YouTube success as well as other Internet personalities that have been watched millions of times.
The best way to present this information is through an infographic. We complied a list of all the people (and a very special cat) that have become successful since their video hit the social media site. In no particular order, you can read about these YouTube stars that hit it big from just a short video. If you are not familiar with some of the videos it's time to do your homework and search for these videos—we promise it's worth your time! Everyone has at least one video that they love to watch over and over again. Chances are good that your favorite video received a ton of views and was included in the graphic above. We didn't just want to show you what you already know about these videos. We did the research and found out exactly what these people are doing now and how their Internet claim to fame has affected their personal lives. Everyone wants to know if "Chocolate Rain" star Tay Zonday has signed with a record company or if someone finally found Matt, the star of his "Where the Hell is Matt" videos. Thankfully, we did all the work for you and created a visual that explains it all.
