2013–2016: Vine and YouTube beginnings

In 2013, Dobrik uploaded his first Vine. He collaborated on Vines with other popular Viners such as Liza Koshy, Gabbie Hanna, Jason Nash, and Zane & Heath.[3] Before starting his own YouTube channel, Dobrik was part of the YouTube group, Second Class.[citation needed] Dobrik launched his personal YouTube channel, David Dobrik, in 2015.[15] Since its inception, videos on this channel have been comedy vlogs based on real-life situations and semi-scripted bits, featuring many of his former Vine collaborators.[citation needed] In August 2016, Dobrik created his second channel, David Dobrik Too, where he posts blooper reels, challenge videos, and his more direct sponsorship deals.[16]

In November 2019, People magazine named Dobrik Sexiest Heartthrob of 2019, over runner-ups including Harry Styles and Shawn Mendes.[32] That same month, Dobrik was one of the presenters at the American Music Awards of 2019,[33] and was also a guest judge in the first episode of the ninth season of Chopped Junior.[34]

In April 2020, Dobrik was ranked, for the second time in a row, the most popular media personality among teenagers based on a survey by the Piper Jaffray & Co.[43]

In August 2020, Dobrik became one of the first 19 recipients of TikTok's $1 billion Creator Fund due to "his ability to show what it means to be your authentic self, bring joy and inspiration to people and creatively connect with an audience," according to Vanessa Pappas, general manager of TikTok US.[44] Dobrik became the host of a reality competition television show on the Discovery Channel called Dodgeball Thunderdome with Erin Lim and Andrew Hawkins as his co-hosts.[10] Dobrik also plans to evolve his David's Disposable App into a full-fledged social media network which aims to conceive the next great social media network built on authenticity.[45] Dobrik officially joined Twitch to launch his own streaming channel. His initial live stream peaked at 47,233 concurrent viewers according to the analytics tool SullyGnome, and his channel gained 201 thousand followers total.[46]

In October 2020, Dobrik launched his fragrance brand David's Perfume with Flower Shop Perfumes Co.[47]

Dobrik partnered with HeadCount to give five fans a chance to win one of five Tesla 3 models to encourage voter registration via the nonprofit HeadCount's website.[48] This partnership has surpassed their goal of 200,000 voters registered for the 2020 election, hitting a grand total of 300,000 and counting.[49] Later on, the New York-based organization was able to count nearly 120,000 people registered leading for it to be the single largest voting drive in the 16-year history of HeadCount, which has worked with many celebrities, mostly musicians such as Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande.[50]

In January 2021, Dobrik narrated Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as part of Spotify's regularly conducted tests to help improve its user experience by releasing nine audiobooks that are all part of the public domain.[56][clarification needed]

Vlogging career

In a July 2019 profile, The Verge wrote of Dobrik's vlog: "Think of it like Friends, but for vloggers. Essentially, Dobrik created the first sitcom-vlog. There are musical transitions, a returning cast of characters that drive the story forward, and Dobrik's laughter acts as a laugh track for viewers. We know when to laugh because Dobrik does, and it all has to do with his friends' antics."[15] In that same profile, writer Julia Alexander noted Dobrik's editing style for bringing Vine's quick-cut style format to YouTube. "It led to a wave of creators who copied him," she wrote, "many of whom continue to shape the site's content today."[15]

Cast ("The Vlog Squad")

Dobrik's vlogs feature a recurring group of friends who collectively comprise "The Vlog Squad". Because the cast is, at its core, a friend group, membership in the cast of the vlogs is amorphous.[57] Generally, people considered part of the Vlog Squad include Jason Nash, Natalie Mariduena, Josh Peck, Zane Hijazi, Heath Hussar, Mariah Amato, Scotty Sire, Kristen McAtee, Nick Antonyan and his siblings Vardan and Suzy, Matt King, Toddy Smith, Corinna Kopf, Jeff Wittek, Joe Vulpis, Carly Incontro, and Erin Gilfoy.[58][59][15]

Because the cast of the vlogs samples Dobrik's larger friend group, membership rotates on an ongoing basis. Former or infrequently-featured members include Gabbie Hanna, Liza Koshy, Trisha Paytas, BigNik, Dom Zeglaitis, Seth Francois, Brandon Calvillo, Elton Castee, and Alex Ernst.[60][59][58][61]

Speaking at the 2019 Streamy Awards, Dobrik said of winning the Ensemble Cast prize with the Vlog Squad, "Ensemble is like, my favorite one to win... [The nominations are] insane, and I can't say this enough—it's all because of these guys," he added. "I have a group of like, 15, 20, 30 friends, and they help me day in and day out with all the videos."[58]

Vlog Squad sexual assault allegations

In February 2021, Seth Francois, a former Vlog Squad member, accused Dobrik of sexual assault after being deceived into kissing Jason Nash while blindfolded. Being the only black member of the Vlog Squad, Francois stated he also felt "pressured to participate in bits that [came] off culturally insensitive."[62] Former Vlog Squad member Nik Keswani (also known as BigNik) accused Dobrik of bullying, stating it was the reason he left the group in 2018.[63][64][65]

On 16 March 2021, Business Insider reported that during the filming of a 2018 vlog about group sex, a woman was allegedly raped during filming by then-Vlog Squad member Dom Zeglaitis while drunk and unable to consent.[66] On the same day, Dobrik released a short video titled "Let's talk", in which he addressed some of the recent controversies related to him, specifically in regards to former members of the Vlog Squad. He did not specifically address the allegations against Zeglaitis from earlier that day.[67] Since the allegations, Dobrik has lost numerous sponsors and fans, and has also stepped down from his position at Dispo.[68] On 26 March 2021, it was reported that YouTube had temporarily demonetized Dobrik's and Zeglaitis's channels over the incident citing violations of its creator responsibility policy.[69]

Dobrik injuring Jeff Wittek

In April 2021, Vlog Squad member Jeff Wittek released a documentary on his YouTube channel titled Don't Try This At Home which explained the circumstances of an accident that happened in June 2020, when Wittek broke his skull and face, resulting in major surgery. The incident occurred during a video shoot for Dobrik's comeback vlog when the Vlog Squad went wakeboarding in a shallow lake while being pulled by Dobrik using an excavator. Wittek's documentary included video showing fellow Vlog Squad member Corinna Kopf swinging from the line but started to lose balance and nearly falling, prompting her to ask to be released, which Dobrik did not immediately do and causing her to accuse him of "taking things too far." When it was Wittek's turn, Dobrik swung him even higher than anyone before him and then suddenly stopped. The momentum of Wittek continuing to swing around caused him to crash into the excavator and then fall into the shallow lake while still attached to the line.[70][71][72]

Integrated advertising

In April 2019, Chipotle celebrated National Burrito Day by partnering with Dobrik in making his go-to Chipotle order the brand's official National Burrito Day burrito: the Dobrik Burrito.[73][better source needed] In May 2019, Chipotle partnered with David Dobrik to help garner momentum for the "Lid Flip Challenge" on TikTok. It garnered 110,000 video submissions with the hashtag and resulting in 104 million video starts and more than 230 million views by June 2019.[74][75] In April 2020, Chipotle partnered with Dobrik for the #ChipotleSponsorMe TikTok Challenge for Cinco de Mayo, where five fans were chosen to win Chipotle Celebrity Cards.[76] In August 2019, Tubefilter praised Dobrik's relationship with advertiser SeatGeek in his videos, calling it "pioneering", and characterizing the company's presence in the vlogs almost as a character in the friend group.[16] In September 2019, Dobrik won the Brand Engagement Award at the Streamys Brand Awards for his collaboration with Chipotle.[77] In October 2019, Tubefilter credited Dobrik for his unique mastery when it comes to weaving brands into his massively-viewed vlogs, and building mutually beneficial partnerships that are designed for the long haul as opposed to one-off deals. In the same article, Bumble considers the ongoing partnership with Dobrik to be a massive success. According to Bumble's vice president of marketing, Chelsea Maclin, "they've been keeping up with David for a while now... and admired how he empowers his community and gives back whenever he's able... We also love his core group of friends, the Vlog Squad, who have not only created more buzz around campus but have also helped us market other modes within Bumble."[78] In December 2019, Dobrik was named the 6th most Influential Person in Influencer Marketing by Influence Weekly.[79] Dobrik's partnership with SeatGeek has also generated as much search interest as "mainstream partnerships", like Chrissy Teigen and Target, or Ninja and Red Bull, according to Google Trends data.[80]

Personal life

Dobrik has three younger siblings, Ester, Sara, and Toby.[81] As a Slovak citizen who arrived in the United States as a child and remained illegally, Dobrik is protected from deportation under DACA.[82] Dobrik stated in a December 2018 interview that he speaks Slovak.[83]

Dobrik dated fellow YouTube personality Liza Koshy from late 2015 to early 2018. They revealed their break-up in June 2018.[84] On 15 May 2019, Dobrik legally married Lorraine Nash, Jason Nash's mother, as a comedic bit for one of his vlogs. On 12 June 2019, Dobrik announced that he and Nash had decided to end their marriage after one month.[85] On 22 November 2019, Dobrik stated via Instagram that he had officially signed divorce papers and divorced Nash.[86]
