Career and Achievements of Anthony Padilla
In 2002, Padilla started smosh.com, a website that featured several videos. The name for the website came after a friend explained mosh pit to Padilla who mistakenly heard the term as 'smosh pit'. Many future YouTubers would upload their videos on Padilla’s website, thus skyrocketing its fame. Eventually, after the formation of a close bond with his sixth-grade classmate Ian Hecox, Padilla decided to start a Youtube channel starring both friends. The channel originated from the duo’s shared knack for comedy and the popularity of their lip sync videos. One of their early videos was a lip-synching video of the original English Theme song for the Pokemon anime. The video garnered over 24 million views over its lifetime, becoming the most watched video of its time before it was removed by the Pokemon Company over copyrights issue.
Slowly Smosh started to diversify its content; Padilla and Hecox started to make short YouTube skits, and video series. Food Battle, Ask Charlie, That Damn Neighbor all were popular series for the comedy duo. Smosh also launched their app called “iShut Up App” in 2010. They even started a blog called “Smosh Pit” which consisted of various pieces of pop culture trivia.
Anthony Padilla guided Smosh to launch three new channels in 2012: ElSmosh, Shut Up! Cartoons, and Smosh Games. A Smosh movie was also made which featured Anthony and Hecox as actors. Anthony also gave his voice for the character of Hal in The Angry Birds movie. On June 14, 2017, Anthony announced his departure from Smosh. He cited ‘lack of creative freedom’ as the main reason for his departure and has committed to creating videos on his own terms. Anthony then provided the voice to Freddy in the direct-to-DVD feature Arctic Adventure: On Frozen Ground.
