My good friend James asked if I could make him a Vine celebrity, and I tried my darndest. With an awkward middle school yearbook photo, a free text to speech converter, and a couple of Adobe products at my disposal, Young James was born. Through twenty-odd videos of incredibly relatable content, Young James amassed 49mm+ loops, 132k+ followers, some very nice nods from the fine folks at Vine, several features on Vine's official Comedy channel (as well as a spot in their year-end recap), and a ton of incredible tributes and remakes from the wonderful Vine community.
