Collective Digital Studio has signed seven digital stars to its roster including prankster and comedian Yousef Saleh Erakat, aka FouseyTube, the company announced Monday.
Erakat, who joined YouTube in 2011, is known for his prank videos — including one where he pretends to be a real-life Spiderman. He also posts vlogs, sketches and motivational videos to his YouTube channel, which has more than 4.8 million subscribers.
In addition, CDS has added a cappella singer Jon Cozart, creator of the Paint channel who has amassed more than 2.7 million subscribers to his Disney and pop song renditions, and the Whatever channel, which features pranks and experiments that push the envelope.
CDS has also signed Vine stars Rudy Mancuso, who has more than 7.3 million followers to his six-second comedy videos, and Logan Paul, whose “bro code” videos have 6.8 million followers. Matthew Espinosa, who has more than 5 million Vine followers, and artist Shaun McBride, who creates wacky doodles on the video app, have also joined CDS.
The existing CDS client roster includes Freddie Wong and the team behind Epic Meal Time.
