The Newest YouTube Craze

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Wondering who will be the next LonelyGirl15? Want to get in on the newest YouTube craze? Meet William Sledd. He is a fierce fashionista giving fashion advice to the masses over YouTube. He is honest and funny and his most recent posting (which you can watch above) and is entitled "Ask A GAY MAN : Denim Edition" already has 869,316 views, 4517 comments and has been marked a favorite 2771 times. Damn.

Plus, as an average teen, he promotes jeans from places like Gap and Old Navy, which appeals to the average household income outside of our LA $150 jeans bubble. You might not learn anything dramatically new, but you got to give this boy props for his entrepreneurial endeavors and attempt to help fashion victims everywhere.
