Caspar Lee is without a doubt one of our favourite South Africans. Not only does he resemble a pineapple and have the kind of name very easily misspelt, but he’s also been a pretty fab YouTuber for over four years now. And he just hit six million subscribers too, so we’d say there’s a lot of people out there who would agree with us.
To celebrate all his success, we thought we’d take a look back at some of his best moments so far.
One thing we love from YouTubers is relatable content, because, at the end of the day, they’re just like us. Even way back when, Caspar was nailing those videos that had us shouting ‘YAS!’ before it was even a thing.
2. MY MOM ANSWERS YOU
If there’s someone we love more than Caspar Lee it’s his mum, Emily. She has featured a lot in her son’s videos from the word go and brought endless stories of Caspar as a child and, honestly, she’s probably our fave YouTuber mum. What a babe.
3. ACCENT BATTLE
If there’s one thing Caspar is terrible at it’s accents. But this video with his sister, Theo, was still pretty cute and, to be honest, we’re not very good at them either, but it’s always fun trying.
4. MEET MY ROOMMATE
Just one of the many collaborations Caspar has done over the last four years, and this one was with his then new roommate, Alfie Deyes otherwise known as PointlessBlog. It’s weird to think now that the Jaspar abode has since been and gone and now they’re going it alone, whilst Alfie lives with his longtime girlfriend Zoella. Crazy.
5. HOW TO GET A BRITISH GIRLFRIEND
Speaking of, here’s Caspar’s first collaboration with none other than Zoella, in which Caspar has just moved to the UK and seeks out some romantic advice.
6. CASPAR LEE DRAWS HIS LIFE
We do love it when YouTubers do the ‘Draw My Life’ tag. It casts some pretty interesting insights into their lives pre-YouTube. Obviously Caspar’s, featuring his A+ drawing skills, was no exception to the rule. We loved it!
7. SELFIES WITH STRANGERS
One series Caspar is known for is going out into the public and making odd, but still pretty hilarious, requests. This was the first of many, asking to take selfies with strangers before selfies were even cool. Trendsetter.
8. NEW APARTMENT TOUR
The moment when the Jaspar bromance became real and the prank wars began. What an iconic time in YouTuber history.
9. BRAIN FREEZE CHALLENGE ft. Caspar Lee
Another of Caspar’s exceptional ongoing series of videos — the ‘Brain Freeze Challenge’. We kind of love watching Caspar and his friends squirm in an ice cold bath and attempt to answer some blooming ridiculous and complex questions.
10. BEST FRIEND TAG w/ Chris Pratt
And then, of course, finally there are the absolutely iconic interviews with big shot celebs that have us sort of cringing but completely loving it all at the same time. When Caspar pretends like they go way back, it has us in stitches and we never quite know if his victims are in on the act or not. Either way, exceptional YouTube content.
Those are some of our Caspar Lee highlights over the last four years. Tweet us @maximumpop and let us know some of your’s and who you’d like to see us cover next for Throwback Thursday.
