One of the most popular channels on YouTube comes from creator Shane Dawson, who has been on the video sharing website since its earliest inception. Notable for his conspiracy series, in recent years his channel has seen a spike in popularity. Taking a more documentary approach, with series on famous YouTubers – including Jake Paul – it is his more recent series on Jeffrey Star which has propelled Shane onto new levels of success.

Shooting a year-long documentary on the process of making a make-up pallet and the behind-the-scenes deals and work that goes into doing so became addictive to fans. It also reinstated why Shane Dawson is nicknamed the “King of YouTube”.
