New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Earlier this week, Sam and Colby, 22-year-old paranormal thrillers and entrepreneurs returned home to Overland Park, Kansas to launch their third YouTube series, "The Origin." This 5-part series follows paranormal-driven series "Witches Forest" (5 episodes, 13 Million collective views) and "Stanley Hotel" (6 episodes, 16.4 Million collective views). Watch here:
The two started their journey wishing to teach others the same life lessons that they had learned through their friendship - self-assurance and happiness - by creating content based around humor, authenticity and exploration. Bound by spooky and sometimes paranormal places, the two have built a career by bringing millions of fans alongside them on a journey into the lesser known, seen and understood spaces of our planet. While their videos cover a broad range of experiences, there are plenty of untold stories, sometimes scary and sometimes funny, around their stranger run-ins.
Collectively, Sam and Colby have more than 7 MILLION YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS and 3 MILLION INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS, and they are nominated for a Teen Choice Award for "Choice YouTuber" alongside David Dobrik, Erika Costell, The Merrell Twins, and others.
The duo recently hosted a three-day pop-up store at Los Angeles' Westfield Century City Mall to support their clothing brand XPLR, and they are continuing to expand in fashion retail by partnering with Hot Topic for a Back-To-School campaign, which can be found in stores now.
Later this Fall, Sam and Colby will launch an original Snapchat docu-series, "Stranded with Sam and Colby" (Bunim/Murray Productions). For more on the Kansas-bred entertainers and entrepreneurs, visit their YouTube channel, here: youtube.com/channel/UCg3gzldyhCHJjY7AWWTNPPA
