THIS PROJECT IS RETIRED formerly known as Yourfavoritemartian (or YFM) was an American music channel created by Ray William Johnson in March 2006, though nothing was uploaded to the channel until almost five years later. The channel currently has over half a billion total video views and 2.3 million subscribers. It is in the top 2,500 most subscribed channels on YouTube, having been the 28th most subscribed and the most subscribed music channel on YouTube at one point. The channel had much anticipation ever since it was first mentioned. The first official video of the channel, a music video called "My Balls," was released on January 26, 2011 and, a week after uploading, had 6.5 million views, eventually taking its place as one of the most viral videos in YouTube history. As of September 26, 2012, there were 43 uploaded videos by Yourfavoritemartian, with no further videos added since (see below). YFM also launched a short film series in October 2011 entitled "Your Favorite Martian: The Series," which features the antics of PuffPuff and the other members while on tour.

On May 9, 2012, Your Favorite Martian began doing cover songs, explaining that all original content was going towards the album they had just announced. However, on November 30, 2012, the band announced that "the project had been retired." This was a direct result of a dispute between Maker Studios and Ray William Johnson, the co-creator of the band. Maker Studios, who had funded the production of YFM, and, specifically, the announced album, demanded a higher share of Johnson's Adsense revenue and more control over the joint intellectual property of the two parties. When Johnson declined, the network cut funding for the album. While eager fans have speculated that perhaps the album will be released at a later time, it is almost certain at this point that it never will.

Trivia

  • On the Yourfavoritemartian YouTube page, Benatar is seen with a black keytar. However, in most music videos, his keytar is red.
  • In "Tig Ol' Bitties," you can see all of the band members as teenagers except for Axel Chains (drummer), suggesting that he met the rest of the band after high school, in which they had already known each other.
  • The lead vocalist, PuffPuff Humbert, contrary to popular belief, is not meant to be Ray William Johnson, as Johnson has explicitly stated.
  • Your Favorite Martian's name is derived from the 1960s television show "My Favorite Martian."
  • The channel Yourfavoritemartian is Ray Johnson's first ever YouTube account, created in 2006, before Johnson's main account, which was created in May 2008.
  • "Robot Bar Fight" is the only video with just PuffPuff and Axel in it.
  • PuffPuff has the exact same outfit as Ray William Johnson in FAttY SPiNS.
  • There is an official T-Shirt on Johnson's website that reads the heights of the band members. PuffPuff is 5'7", DeeJay (not counting the afro) is 5'8", Benatar is 6'0" and Axel is 6'2".
  • In the series by Animonster (YFMTS), Axel talks. However, in the music videos, he never sings.
  • Some songs include characters from other media. These include various film, Tv and video game robots in "Robot bar fight", various villains in "Club Villain", video game characters in "8-bit world" and some odd appearances featuring the smurfs and carebears in "Orphan tears" and star wars references in "Take Over The World".
  • Sometime in 2016, several videos were removed from the channel for unknown reasons. However, they are still viewable via fan released mirror videos.
  • PuffPuff is the only character whose hair doesn't cover his eyes. Dee Jay and Benatar have shown their eyes before, but only rarely and Axel never shows his eyes.
  • Eight songs have either been removed or become unavailable on the main channel. These songs are Puppet Break-Up, Whip Yo Kids, Booty Store, Nerd Rage, Epileptic Techno, Dookie Fresh, The Somebody That I Used To Know Cover and The Jump Around Cover, back-ups of these videos exist.
