SootHouse is a group channel with a recurring cast of 7 men and 1 woman; the frontman/main editor being Wilbur(who has edited some videos for JackSucksAtLife) and the other members being Charlie, David, Dan, George, Jack, Matt, and Rhianna.
The channel mocks internet culture. Dealing blows to bronies, furries, and nationalists, usually in a non-biased format, looking at the individuals themselves and not the fandoms as a whole.
The show is edited in a SovietWomble style, with subtitles timed with the person's speech and usually motion-tracked onto various backgrounds and people speaking.
SootHouse first uploaded "Bulgarian Real Estate" in April 2017. The video included Wilbur and George mocking websites selling cheap houses in Eastern Europe. It is their longest video to date.
Only four months later, the channel gained fame for the first time with "The Worst Bedrooms on 4chan" which garnered 300k views in under a week and catapulted them towards 50k subs within 2 weeks.
The success came very quickly for a channel with no previous background or controversy. Some of this can be attributed to the rise in popularity of 'Reddit Readings' pioneered by SootHouse and SorrowTV (a close associate of the channel)
Soon after this, the channel uploaded "Terrible Off-Brands and Bootlegs" which gained immense popularity, currently having over 1 million views and sparking a running-gag of the phrase "Eat pant" which has spread to various online communities and enjoys widespread use.
SootHouse has 8 primary members. Since they generally only record audio, with their videos' visuals typically only consisting of the material that they are currently discussing atop a marble-textured background, the color-coded text is used to distinguish between the members when they're talking.
Wilbur is grey/white. Charlie is blue. David is green. Dan is red. George is purple. Jack is yellow. Matt is orange. Rhianna is fuchsia.
