All the channels combined have a total of over 4.5 billion views.
Shane grew up in California and graduated from Lakewood High School in 2006.
He also became the first person to have 2 channels at over a million subscribers in the same year, counting this channel and Shane Dawson TV2.
On March 31, 2012, he uploaded his first original music video, entitled "SUPERLUV" MUSIC VIDEO by SHANE DAWSON, to his channel, which uses his emo character, Switch.
The two biggest series on this channel were "Ask Shane", a series which is a question and answer, and "Viewer Orgy Party" which is a reverse on the "Ask Shane" idea, instead of him being asked questions, he would ask them to his fans.
In February 2011, he moved "Ask Shane" to his main channel (Shane Dawson TV) because he found it was too much work to produce one every week, but he still did them occasionally.
He uploaded the behind the scenes to this channel and later started putting vlogs on it.The song "Superluv" was fairly successful, reaching #28 in the i Tunes Pop Chart.Since then, he has released 9 other original music videos, his most recent being titled "FAMOUS YOUTUBER" - MUSIC VIDEO, released on November 27, 2015, receiving over 3.7 million views as of July 2017. As of July 2017, he has produced and uploaded 6 short films, 4 being about Shane's life and/or childhood.His first proper sketch video was HODINI'S STREET MAGIC .The video that he himself alleges shot him to fame was his FRED IS DEAD! He now has over 8.1 million subscribers on this channel alone and is one of the most well known You Tube stars on the site, reaching his peak number of the most subscribed list at #3 behind Ray William Johnson and nigahiga in 2010."Viewer Orgy Party" has also been moved to his main channel for the same reason, but he does not produce them very often. Because the channel was inactive, Shane asked You Tube if he could have it to which they said yes. This channel has over 12 million subscribers and is his main vlog channel.In April 2015, about three years after he had uploaded his last video on the channel, he changed the name of the channel to Human Emoji with no explanation why. For about a year, Shane has left the content which made him famous which was sketch comedy and went full time into vlogging which has also made him garner fame in the past, but not at first.Due to his excessive use on the channel now with him now abandoning the others, it has 2 million subscribers and 2 billion views more than his previous main channel, Shane Dawson TV and even more on his previous second main channel, Shane Dawson TV2 (now Human Emoji). The outro has Mike Anderson, a friend of Shane's who recently moved away from the LA area. In early November 2017, Shane announced that he now has merchandise on Amazon.com/shanedawson.In the beginning of 2012, Shane started a series called "Hanging with Shane" where he uploads a video every weekday made with footage of his everyday life. He sings, "So leave a comment, on Shane's facebook wall, and you may find yourself in tomorrow's video. Shane's had rumors of him being gay; these are false as he has admitted in a video to breaking up with his at that time present girlfriend, but in one of his videos, he was dared to kiss fellow You Tuber Onision, he completed the dare even though he clearly didn't want to.Deezy, Paris Hilton, Shane's Mom (the opposite of his real mother), the superhuman Switch, and Aunt Hilda.He has three channels: Shane Dawson TV (his main channel), Human Emoji (his second channel, which has not been in use for some time now), and shane (his vlogging channel).
