5-Minute Crafts is a YouTube channel and the most subscribed Cypriot YouTube channel maintained by media publisher TheSoul Publishing[1] (based in Limassol, Cyprus), who also owns other YouTube channels such as BRIGHT SIDE. The videos uploaded on 5-Minute Crafts are usually compilations of DIY projects, life hacks, and crafts, though they have received a fair bit of criticism by many.

The YouTube channel, 5-Minute Crafts, is currently one of the fastest-growing YouTube channels in subscribers, gaining over 1 million subscribers every month, which averages 50,000 subscribers every day, along with achiving 500 million video views every month. It is also currently the 5th most subscribed YouTube channel and the 30th most viewed YouTube Channel. The channel has now established over 60 million subscribers and 20 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 send out about four 10 minute long videos every day, with high-quality graphics. On closer inspection, you see the content they produce features swift 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, speedier 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 particular 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 specific "life hack" but do not have the advertized content in the video. However, many people have learned which thumbnails are real and which ones are fake, so this is no longer a big problem. They're also infamous for lying about the quality of all their hacks, acting like something instantly fixes something when it 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. Still, as to the end of December, this started dying in which in March 2019, almost every video has new clips causing the channel to erupt in the growth of subscribers suddenly.
