fouseyTUBE. DOSEofFousey. Yousef Erakat. He’s one of my favorite YouTubers around and here are six reasons you should be watching him.
1. He has a good time shopping.
Fitted hats and cool gear is all you pretty much see fouseyTUBE rocking in his videos and it’s clear that he makes an effort when it comes to his appearance. Yousef is always lined up, looking sharp and sporting his trademark thick eyebrows. When it comes to grooming, he’s definitely got something good going on there. Anyone know what products he uses?
2. Look at them brows..just look at ‘em.
3. He’ll pretty much do anything for a laugh…
fouseyTUBE is best known for hilarious (usually juvenile) prank videos which have garnered millions of hits on YouTube which is no easy feat. It certainty takes hard work. His videos are often pretty funny, sometimes just plain silly but always entertaining.
In addition to his ability to flex his comedic chops, Yousef also has a conscience. The YouTube extraordinaire raises awareness with this videos on social/political issues. He’s also hit big numbers with his The Public Rape Experiment (Trigger warning: Includes a story of sexual assault and related themes throughout the video) and The Kidnapping Children Experiment (Trigger warning: Depicts fictitious kidnapping scene), proving that he’s got a lot more to offer us than a few good laughs.
4. His laugh is a hilarious dolphin like dream. No seriously, I dare you to resist its power.
tortures his has good friends.
One of the great things about fouseyTUBE is that you often see his friends join in on his growing YouTube journey. You often see them being pranked, and them occasionally pranking fouseyTUBE himself. What’s great is that you get to see a close group of guy friends who really just like to enjoy each other’s company. You can tell there’s a lot of love between them and that’s very cool to see in his videos. In addition, his parents also occasionally make the cut and they’re pretty awesome too.
5. He talks real and is healing right in front of our eyes.
Earlier this year Yousef disclosed that he battles depression. The startling admission seemingly came out of nowhere for us but in his declaration, you can see his earnest desire to work hard to get better. And with the stigma surrounding mental health, he shows us that men of color, and middle eastern men in particular, also have emotional challenges to face in life.
Yousef vlogs daily on his second channel DOSEofFousey and you can catch up on all of his earlier vids on his fouseyTUBE channel. I hope you’ll be watching, I know I will!
