Troydan is a massive YouTube creator who has over two million subscribers combined over two channels. We discussed with him what life is like on such a massive scale.
Troydan is a full-time YouTuber who has dominated the NBA 2K and Fortnite scene as well as killing it with his reaction videos.
Combined between two channels, Troy has over 2.3 million followers and has built a tremendous following due to his extremely entertaining content.
Troy was nice enough to take time out of his busy schedule and conduct an interview with us:
Patrick Hennessy: Since we conducted our last interview about two years ago, both of your channels have grown massively. Has anything else changed in your life since then?
Troydan: A lot of things changed in my life in the last two years. I got a new car, a very nice Corvette Stingray and I bought a home, so that’s pretty massive I guess. Oh yeah, and I also left the house. I got my passport and went to New York, L.A., Detroit, and Baltimore. I didn’t know this, but there is an actual place called the outdoors. Yes, there is life outside of my basement…
I also got braces. It’s kind of a weird thing to do at my age.
Patrick Hennessy: Which videos do you find more fun to make, your main channel videos or the ones on your reaction channel?
Troydan: Well, for my main videos I have to do a lot of editing. I don’t really like editing, to be honest, I hate Sony Vegas. Why do I use Sony Vegas? I don’t know. The react channel videos are kinda fun to make for two reasons. Well, 1. I get to watch a video and people like that sometimes and 2. I don’t have to edit it at all. It’s pretty greasy actually… I’m not ashamed.
Patrick Hennessy: When we spoke last time, you mentioned that you haven’t met any of your fans in real life, has this changed since then?
Troydan: Yea, I’ve definitely met some people in real life now. Unfortunately, that comes with part of the parcel when you go outside. In Toronto, I met a whole bunch of fans actually and some of them had signs with my name on it, I had to sign an autograph for some really rich kid with a Jake Paul sweater on.
Patrick Hennessy: Now, let’s get to the hard-hitting question, how did you meet this Blaze character that has been featured in plenty of your videos?
Troydan: I’m sorry, I don’t know who that is…
Patrick Hennessy: Where do you come up with these amazingly wild ideas that you create some of your videos based on? It seems like you never run out of ideas.
Troydan: Mostly drugs… No, I’m just kidding. I think there is something wrong with my brain that allows me to think of things. I don’t know if there is a proper name for that.
Patrick Hennessy: You recently made a new video playing MLB The Show for the first time in a while and these are in my opinion, some of your funniest. How come you don’t do them more often?
Troydan: I would like to do MLB The Show more often, unfortunately, I have to kind of play what’s most popular. I mean, NBA 2K is my first choice, but I enjoy The Show, I really do. In fact, if people wanted to see it I would definitely start uploading that again. I like playing The Show. I like Diamond Dynasty.
Patrick Hennessy: Your song “Troy’s Plan” recently reached #1 on the Billboard Top 100, when are you releasing your next hit track?
Troydan: I would love to release another hit track. I think I’m only really good at diss tracks though, so I’m gonna need someone that has at least the same amount of subs as me or more to either come at me or I go at them.
Patrick Hennessy: LeBron James is now a member of your Los Angeles Lakers, how do you feel about the signing?
Troydan: At first I wasn’t sure how to feel about LeBron James coming to the Los Angeles Lakers. I mean, I’ve been hating on this man for so long I don’t know how I could ever cheer this individual, but I have to look at it this way… I am a Laker fan and Lonzo is a Laker. If LeBron has to get Lonzo his first ring then so be it. Triple B’s.
Patrick Hennessy: Where do you see the Lakers finishing next season?
Troydan: Either the second or third seed in the West.
Patrick Hennessy: Do you have any goals for where you would like to be a few years from now?
Troydan: Goals… Goals… Yea, I should probably get some of those.
Patrick Hennessy: Would you ever consider moving to the United States?
Troydan: God no. I don’t think you would let me, even if it was an option. Trump seems pretty crazy.
Patrick Hennessy: If there was one thing your fans don’t know about you that you want to tell them, what would it be?
Troydan: Well, a lot of my fans might not know this and it’s something I’ve been keeping to myself for quite a while. I am in fact an actual Caucasian Male. That’s right, I’ve been living with this secret for quite some time and I think this would be a great opportunity to let the fans know that I am actually a Caucasian-born Canadian man.
Oh yeah, and I’m also really good at curling.
