  • Screaming: Albert often screams in his videos.

  • Green Screen Man: A superhero referencing green screens and how they work.

He is often bullied, harassed and assaulted by other students in his school. The story ultimately comes to a resolution in which a student stands up for Su Tart, which causes the other students to feel guilt for bullying him. Su Tart's appearance is that of the male default avatar on Roblox.

Some of his videos have included Roblox myths as well.

Before he became popular, Albert made many Phantom Forces, Apocalypse Rising, and CS: GO videos.

Discontinuation of AlbertsStuff

In mid-October 2017, Albert had fully migrated to the Flamingo channel as a result of his videos on AlbertsStuff being demonetized due to his use of profanity. Since Albert's full-time job is YouTube, switching to a different channel was the only sustainable way for him to generate income.

On August 18, 2020, Albert responded to backlash for using a transphobic slur in an old video. He apologized on his Twitter for the "edgy jokes" he made in past videos.[10] He then removed all the videos on the AlbertsStuff channel, save for one.
