Smosh is a YouTube comedy duo consisting of best friends Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox. They are currently the fourth-most subscribed channel on YouTube with over 4 billion views and 21 million subscribers. Nice Peter had hinted at their appearance many times before, and they finally debuted in Artists vs TMNT.
Smosh was originally founded by Anthony Padilla in 2002, later joined by Ian Hecox, but it wasn't until 2005 that their YouTube account was created. Early videos on their YouTube channel included lip-syncing famous theme songs, such as Power Rangers, Mortal Kombat, and Pokémon, the latter of which became the most viewed video on YouTube at the time until it was removed for copyright. Smosh is also known for its cast of recurring characters, such as Ian's mother Sharon, That Damn Neighbor, the late Charlie the Drunk Guinea Pig, and a recurring cast consisting of Noah Grossman, Keith Leak, Olivia Sui, Shayne Topp, and Courtney Miller. They currently have several channels, which include Smosh Games, Smosh 2nd Channel, Shut Up! Cartoons, and ElSmosh. Furthermore, a feature film starring Anthony, Ian, Jenna Marbles, Grace Helbig, Shane Dawson, and other YouTubers titled Smosh: The Movie, was released in theaters on July 24th, 2015. Smosh has also released a Smosh Magazine in August 2013, and Smosh Comics were announced in February 2016.
