Where Your Favorite YouTubers From Middle School Are Now
Raise your hands if you also forgot about Fred. Fred, also known by his birth name Lucas Cruikshank (which is much harder to say and even *harder* to spell), was the first YouTuber to reach one million subscribers. Since that fateful day in 2009, the Fred brand expanded to include movies and a television show on Nickelodeon, but after Fred: The Show was axed, Lucas decided to retire the character permanently. Lucas said in an interview with Tube Filter that his decision to stop making Fred content was because it was becoming forced and redundant, but Lucas still posts as himself on his personal channel, Lucas.
