Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox. In 2002, Padilla created a website named "smosh.com" for making flash animations, and he was later joined by Hecox. Soon afterward, they began to post videos on Smosh's YouTube channel in the autumn of 2005 and quickly became one of the most popular channels on the site. As of May 2019, the Smosh channel has over 9.5 billion video views and over 25 million subscribers, putting it just outside of the top 50 most subscribed channels on YouTube. Since 2012, the Smosh brand has expanded to consist of multiple channels, including a Spanish-language channel, a channel focused on video gaming content, and a variety channel. The sketches have also included more actors. Padilla left Smosh in June 2017 to pursue independent ventures. The Smosh channel has experienced three different spans as the most subscribed YouTube channel.
