Ryan Higa Hits 3 Million Subscribers

December 22, 2010

This week, Ryan Higa became the first YouTube creator to hit 3 million subscribers on the site. His path to three million dates all the way back to July of 2007, when Higa posted How to Be a Ninja, a clip that's been viewed over 25 million times. Compare that below to the 35 minute film he starred in and posted in late November:

Interestingly, though "How to Be a Ninja" came out over three years ago, Higa has posted 75 videos to his channel, the least of any creator in the subscriber top 10 save Annoying Orange, which only launched this year. But his top five videos alone have generated nearly 100 million views.

Looking back at the subscription data, you can see Higa's been able to maintain consistent subscription levels for well over a year, leading up to the big 3-0-0-0-0-0-0.
