With more than 50,000 subscribers on YouTube, Kelsey Ellison’s videos made it in South Yorkshire and were shown on Japanese TV. She lives in Barnsley and created her videos, which are inspired by Korean and Japanese pop music, in her bedroom.
In September 2010, her first video was posted to her You Tube channel and she claims that she uploaded the video as a dare. She further said that she has been uploading videos since 2009 after watching several video clips of Phil Lester, a British YouTube star. However, after getting into Korean pop music and Japanese pop music and her passion to learn Japanese language, she returned to YouTube.
Recently, her YouTube channel has 52,000 subscribers and her most popular video clip has been watched more than 800,000 times. Skout has been buzzing about it, and some information has even popped up on CNet. Ellison described her success as “unreal.” She also said that she sometimes forget about until she upload a video and people leave amazing comments. Surprisingly, many of her viewers are from Europe, UK, and US.
She also found it strange to be considered as a role model for youths. However, she said that she has a younger stepsister who is about 13 years old and she always think about showing the video to her before filming it. This explains why her videos fit the younger demographics.
Today, Ellison is working on more music video clips and she is planning for something that will definitely surprise her viewers.
