Anything4views has known maxmoefoe since they were teenagers. They met when Chad added Max on Facebook and lied about being a popular video game streamer. Max began featuring Chad in some of his videos, along with his friends and younger brother.
At some point around 2015, Max stated he introduced iDubbbz, Filthy Frank, HowToBasic and Chad to each other and the group filmed a large amount of sketches, vlogs and other videos across all of their channels.
Chad's channel at the time was called "Monkrage", but he rarely uploaded and at this time did not intend to become a YouTuber. The most popular video to feature Chad that was filmed at this time was DUMBASS GETS PEWDIEPIE TATTOO, which was uploaded on Filthy Frank's channel. George (Frank), told Chad to change his twitter name to "Anything4views". Before this, he only went by this name in the collaboration videos. As George had predicted, he recieved a flood of followers and began going by the name officially.
In the video, as the title says, he gets a tattoo of PewDiePie's former logo on his butt. Later PewDiePie reacted to the video . In 2016, he appeared in loads of new videos, such as Deadly Twister and HUMAN CAKE. At the start of December 2016, he uploaded his first video on his own YouTube channel.
Chad began steaming on Twitch before being banned, and moving back over to YouTube. He started a pocast titled "Cold Ones", with MaxMoeFoe.

Baited is a podcast hosted by Keemstar, Colossal is Crazy and Chad. The podcast focuses on YouTube drama and the struggles of being a content creator. The hosts regularly criticize the decisions made by YouTube as a company and how the behaviour of creators on the platform influences the public perception of YouTube. Keemstar is known to start shouting matches with his co-hosts, and Colossal and Keem often talk over Chad and do not allow him much room to speak. Keem regularly makes ridiculous comments such as de-railing a conversation to shout that his phone was being hacked, or his claim that he owns a treasure map that will lead him to "Nazi gold". Keem is also known to berate his co-hosts for not making enough content and advised Colossal to quit his job and Chad to give up his education in order to focus exclusively on YouTube. The podcast is currently inactive, and it is unknown wether Chad is still with the Podcast or completely left.
