Breedlove is YouTube's top rising search, globally, of the past 7 days thanks to the heartbreaking videos he posted just before his untimely passing.
Like a lot of talented young people, he had a YouTube channel -- two actually -- breedlovetv and OurAdvice4You, which he used to shared his advice and thoughts with the world. Videos on those channels had been seen 4.7 million times before the 25th. A third, TotalRandomness512, was used to house the two "This is My Story" videos above, which have already been seen well over 6 million times.
In the past week, over 1,000 videos tagged with his name, many of them personal tributes and remembrances, have been posted to YouTube. His memorial service was a also a spiking search over the weekend.
The style of Breedlove's videos is not new, but had a strong emotional impact. Below is a playlist with a selection of tributes, using the same visual reference:
