It is also currently the 3rd most subscribed channel (not including categories such as Music) and the 29th most viewed YouTube channel. The channel has currently established over 60 million subscribers and 15.3 billion video views. It is also the fastest channel to reach 50 million subscribers, doing so in 828 days.

Controversy

As many people have mentioned, the channel is a content farm, churning out as much content as possible without much bother for quality aside from visual. They are managing to send out about four 10 minute long videos everyday, with high quality graphics. On closer inspection, you see the content they produce features very quick tutorials and crafts, each video is often a compilation of said crafts and is made to fit videos on social media apps with a shorter, quicker format, such as Instagram, where a user requires to make the video under a few seconds to grab viewers' attention and get the point across in time; since Instagram lacks a feature in which a viewer can go to/rewind a certain part of the video. Otherwise, on YouTube they go slow and add long pauses to add length to the video.

The channel is also infamous for its clickbait, where they would display a picture in the thumbnail regarding a certain "life hack" but do not have the advertized content in the video. However, many people have learnt which thumbnails are real and which ones are fake so this is no longer a big problem. They're also infamous for lying about quality of all their hacks, acting like something instantly fixes something when it actually doesn't even though most of their hacks are real. The channel's videos sometimes appear in people's recommendations, even when they are not subscribed to them. The channel was also infamous for repeating videos a lot in September, October, November and December but as to the end of December this started dying in which in March 2019 almost every video has new clips causing the channel to suddenly erupt in the growth of subscribers.
