We’re back with even more YouTuber facts you probably don’t know. Alfie Deyes was a toughie, he’s only 22 but we managed to search the depths of the interweb for some juicy info, like what A-Levels he took and the ‘Official’ Carly Rae Jepsen video.
1) He holds two Guinness World Records, and they’re both extremely random – most bangles put on in 30 seconds by a team of two and most party poppers popped in 30 seconds
2) He can solve a Rubiks Cube in under one minute
3) In school Alfie starred in three musicals – ‘West Side Story’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’. Does this mean he’s as talented at singing as his boo, Zoella?
4) Alfie used to do competitive gymnastics when he was younger
5) He only had one girlfriend (that he’s told us so far) before Zoe, hopefully that means Zalfie is for life
6) Alfie studied Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Geography for his A-levels
7) He use to ride a Vespa motorbike, vroom vroom
8) When Alfie was younger, he wanted to grow up to be the guy who picks up dog poop in parks. Why Alfie, why?!
9) Nine of Alfie’s top 10 most watched YouTube videos are collabs with other YouTubers (and Ariana Grande!)
10) If you combine all of Alfie’s YouTube channels, he has over nine million subscribers. That’s seriously impressive.
11) Alfie uploaded a video onto YouTube titled ‘Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen (OFFICIAL)’, it’s him and Marcus lip syncing along. Definitely not the official video, boys, but we love it anyway.
12) There’s also a video of them both lip syncing One Direction on the train
13) Yep, if you hadn’t guessed: Alfie loves One Direction
14) Alfie first properly met Zoe at Summer in the City 2012
15) Along with some of his YouTuber pals, Alfie sang on the charity single ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?‘
Did you know any of those? We were quite surprised with Alfie’s A-Level subjects – he’s a little creative munchkin! And his lip sync skills were ON POINT. Let us know on Twitter @maximumpop if you’ve got any more Alfie facts that we need to know.
