He has also ventured into acting. In 2016 he starred in the comedy Laid In America alongside his brother KSI and another YouTube star, Casper Lee in the leading role, and The Rackaracka

KSI’s YouTube channel is currently the 42nd most-subscribed YouTube channel in the world with over 17 million subscribers and more than 3.5 billion views of its videos, and according to Forbes, it is the fifth-largest YouTube star in the world in 2015.
