Let me take you back to 2014. I was working abroad, I was bored, the A/C in my hotel room was broken. I decided to start recording Vines with the premise being me doing snippets of popular songs in the style of Alan Partridge and James Hetfield.
It became a sleeper hit. Six or so months later, my channel exploded and I now have >7,000 followers and nearly 10,000,000 loops. I know, right?
Why? I'll tell you why. Americans love Vine, and they have no idea who Alan Partridge is. Hence the comments they made on my videos. Having said that, my first ever troll was a guy who thought my goal was to sound like Partridge. What an idiot.
