Reactions

In late 2006, when Peter Oakley's channel Geriatric1927 became the most-subscribed on YouTube, a number of television channels expressed interest in interviewing him on his rise to fame.[citation needed] The Daily Mail and TechBlog published an article about him and his success.[citation needed] In 2009, the FRED channel became the first to attain one million subscribers.[173]

Following the third time that Smosh became the most-subscribed YouTube channel, Ray William Johnson collaborated with the duo.[174] A flurry of top YouTubers including Ryan Higa, Shane Dawson, Felix Kjellberg, Michael Buckley, Kassem Gharaibeh, The Fine Brothers, and Johnson himself, congratulated the duo shortly after they surpassed Johnson as the most-subscribed channel.[175]
