|“||Welcome to SUPERFRUIT, the best show in the internet. My name is...||”|
―Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi
SUP3RFRUIT, (also known online as Superfruit), is an American internet duo comprising Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi. They upload videos to the channel every Friday, which usually involve them talking about everyday life. On occasion, they upload videos of them singing covers of popular songs or compilations/mix-ups of popular or recent albums, as well as collaborations with other people. Both Scott and Mitch are members of the acapella group Pentatonix.
Some trademarks of their videos include: one of the opening lines of their videos, where both introduce themselves as a random noun (ex: "My name is _____!"); both singing "Goodbye~!" at the end of each video in harmony; a short blooper after the outro screen, generally lasting anywhere from 5 seconds to a minute. They almost always title their videos in all capital letters.
The duo has also released a two part EP titled "Future Friends", which they release official music videos for on their channel. "Future Friends: Part One" was released on June 30, 2017. It was soon followed by the release of "Future Friends: Part Two" on September 15, 2017.
Both Scott and Mitch were born in Arlington, Texas. Scott was born on September 17, 1991, and Mitch was born on July 24, 1992. They became best friends at 10 years old. Both grew up together with fellow bandmate Kirstie Maldonado and were schoolmates at Martin High School.
While in high school together, they dated for two weeks. However, Mitch broke up with Scott after a little while. Scott says he's glad it happened, because if it didn't, they probably wouldn't be friends right now.
Scott, Mitch and their band Pentatonix competed on Season 3 of The Sing-Off, becoming the winner of the competition and securing a record deal with the Sony-owned label Madison Gate Records.
Mitch is openly gay, while Scott prefers not to state his sexualilty as he doesn't prefer labels. They made a ship name for themselves ("Scömìche") but are not actually dating. (A large majority of SUPERFRUIT fans ship them regardless, often pointing out even the tiniest of details in a video in attempts to find evidence of their relationship.)
They did have a cat named Wyatt Blue Grassi-Hoying, who is a Sphynx cat, however they have recently stated that they have had to rehome him.
The duo uploaded their first video on the channel on August 13, 2013, titled "AN INTRO TO SUPERFRUIT". Both Scott and Mitch "wanted to do vlog channels separately, but [they] never really have". (Because SUPERFRUIT is inseparable, and everyone knows it.)
An existing segment on their videos is "Weekly Obsessions", where they update viewers on their weekly obsessions, which "change all the time... very quickly, too, very rapidly." Another existing segment on their videos is named "EVERYONE! HERE'S A GOOD SONG!", which they added for the first time in "HEADS UP!" because they "both really love music, and so [they] have a song suggestion".
A segment that was removed from their videos soon after it was implemented was titled "SUPERFRUIT/STUPIDFRUIT (Comment of the Week)", where they shared a few comments from the previous week's video that they found funny or ridiculous.
SUPERFRUIT's most popular videos (with more than 1 million views) are mostly their music covers, including FROZEN MEDLEY (feat. Kirstie Maldonado) , BEYONCÉ and EVOLUTION OF MILEY CYRUS. The FROZEN MEDLEY video has been recently removed (around October/November 2016) due to copyright issues, to the mild outrage of several fans.
