Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we will discuss an AMAZING vlogger/dancer/singer who is on the brink of becoming your newest obsession. Who am I talking about? Well does the name JeffreyFever (Jeffrey Chang) ring any bells? If it doesn’t then it should! Not only are Jeffrey’s videos witty, creative, and fun, but he also occasionally has appearances by his very funny father. With a growing fanbase, and the talent to continue growing, I would definitely take this time to become familiar with Jeffrey’s work. So without further ado, let’s get started!!!
Jeffrey posted his first video (which was cleverly titled ‘My First Video’) on July 28th, 2011 My First Video). I really like this video because it is humorous, and perfectly introduces you to Jeffrey’s comedic style and personality. Jeffrey makes jokes about the hate and discrimination that he will ultimately face through his online presence, as well his family’s inability to stay quiet when he begins to film (what his mom does after he says that he’s going to start filming is one of my favorite parts). Another video that Jeffrey did that I really enjoyed was his video for Ellen’s Dance Dare competition ELLEN’S DANCE DARE – JEFFREYFEVER (which helped make the finals and was uploaded on February 22nd, 20I2 ). I really enjoyed watching this video because it was not only hilarious, but also showed off Jeffrey’s impressive dance skills. In the video you can see him showing off impressive ballet and hip-hop moves on the unsuspecting strangers involved (and it was AMAZING!). The next video I’m going to discuss is Jeffrey’s ‘Why Valentine’s Day Sucks’ video Why VALENTINE’S DAY Sucks (it was uploaded on . I really like that this video explores why Valentine’s Day sucks for both single people, and people in relationships. Topics such as: the difficulty of picking out the “right” gift, being reminded that you’re alone, and more are discussed (so the moral of the story is that this day sucks for everyone no matter what your relationship status’ is on Facebook…yay???). The final video we are going to talk about is Jeffrey’s ‘Dad Disapproves my Career’ video Dad Disapproves my Career – YouTube (it was uploaded on ). This is another one of my favorite videos, because Jeffrey’s dad makes a guest appearance, and he is equally as hilarious as Jeffrey. In the video Jeffrey discusses how his parents are much more supportive of his YouTube career, and Jeffrey’s dad talks about how Jeffrey REALLY needs the support, and his (Jeffrey’s dad’s) former Hollywood ambitious! In this video you really see where Jeffrey got his unique sense of humor.
Jeffrey has proven through his videos that he is an exceptionally funny and creative guy who will go far in his career on and off of YouTube. Since beginning his YouTube channel, he has grown a fanbase that includes: 36,565 subscribers in YouTube (with 1,166,309 total channel views), 13,400 followers on Twitter, 8,199 ‘likes’ on Facebook, 6,500 followers on Instagram, and appearances on ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’, YouTube channel ‘AwesomnessTV’, and ‘Canada’s Got Talent’. With such diverse talent, a fun personality, and an ever growing fanbase, I think it’s safe to assume that if you aren’t obsessed with Jeffery’s channel, you soon will be.

Hello people of the internet!!! On this ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an emerging star that is on the brink of being the next big pop super star. This incredibly talented guy is an actor, dancer, model, vocalist, and even plays the guitar, piano, and the ukulele! (I know that last one is so random but completely awesome right?!) Who is this multitalented guy you may ask? It’s Max Schneider!!!! (Cue the applause clap, clap, clap!).
Max was born in June of 1992 in New York, and began performing for family and friends at the age of 3. He began his professional career in the Broadway musical ‘13’, which was written by Broadway veteran Jason Robert Brown, and opened in New York October of 2008. ‘13’was nominated for a Drama Desk Award (which honors Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway productions), and its Broadway run consisted of 105 performances and 22 previews. After ‘13’, Max appeared in numerous hit shows such as ‘Law and Order SVU’ and ‘One Life to Live’. In January of 2010 he was chosen to participate in the YoungArts Program in Miami, FL (which is a program in which “talented young artists in the literary, performing, visual and design arts” take master classes from industry veterans, and make connections to help them receive admission into top colleges/conservatories and in the job market….in other words this is THE program to be a part of if you want a career in the entertainment industry, good job Max!). So after completing this program, Max was featured in the Fall/Winter 2010 ad campaign for fashion super house ‘Dolce & Gabbana’, which also featured MADONNA, (Yup the pop icon, super business women, one of the most powerful people to ever walk the earth Madonna)!The ad was released in August of 2010, and seen all over the world.
After this, Max booked the role of Lance in the film ‘The Last Keepers. In 2011 he filmed the pilot for a Nickelodeon show called ‘How to Rock’, (I loved that show!!!), and the show aired in February of 2012. Later in 2012, Max starred in a Nickelodeon movie musical called ‘Rags’ (which was a Cinderella inspired movie about a guy named Charlie who is an awesome singer and dancer, and he falls for a pop star, who is played by TV and movie veteran Keke Palmer. I won’t tell you what else happens, but it’s a really cool movie with a terrific soundtrack, so check it out!). Even though ‘How to Rock’ was cancelled after 1 season, Max co-wrote a song called ‘Last One Standing’ for the show, he also wrote a song called ‘Show You How To Do’ for the hit Disney show ‘Shake It Up’.

Although Max has continued to work as an actor in various films and TV shows, he has also had a successful career as a musician. In October of 2009, Max began to release cover videos of popular songs on YouTube, and in 2010 he released an EP called ‘First Encounters’, on ITunes. In the summer of 2012 Max opened for Victoria Justice on her ‘Making It In America’ tour, and released three cover videos with Victoria on YouTube (the videos were a Bruno Mars Medley, a Maroon 5 Medley, and a Holiday Medley…YouTube super producer Kurt Hugo Schneider also worked on these covers, so you NEED to see them…well finish reading this blog, share it with your friends and then see the video. Ok? Yay!) . (Link to Max and Victoria’s ‘Bruno Mars Cover Medley’: Bruno Mars Medley! – Victoria Justice & Max Schneider.) In May of 2013, Max dropped his latest original single called ‘Nothing Without Love’, and the official music video for the song. (Link to ‘Nothing Without Love’: “Nothing Without Love” – Max Schneider (Official Music Video).) His latest single was well received by his “Schneider Monkeys” (this is what Max calls his fans), and he has continued to release cover videos by himself, as well as collaborating with many well known YouTube stars. Here’s one of my personal favorites, Max and Danny Padilla’s cover of One Republic’s hit ‘Counting Stars’: “Counting Stars”- One Republic (Max Schneider (MAX) & Danny Padilla Cover). Max is definitely a star on the rise, and someone who I believe will have an iron grip on the music and film/TV industry very soon.
Check out Max on his social media sites (and if you want to send him the link to this blog that would be AMAZING too…just sayingJ)
