Boys On YouTube

6 March 2019

As busy as Boys by Girls Magazine is, we somehow always manage to check out the latest videos on our YouTube subscriptions list. It's our new addiction, don't judge us. From the outspoken Tyler Oakley and his fabulous hair to Ryan Higa's slapstick humour, these boys provide us with some much-needed comic relief in our hectic lives.

Just listening to them vent about bad drives can have us in stitches of laughter during our lunch hour, and their videos keep us entertained long after we've left the office. So we wanted to put together a list for you with a list of our top 10 favourite boys on YouTube to help enrich your lives. When you think about it YouTube is becoming the new way of watching TV, so you might as well get used to some of these guys being around and get as hooked as we are on their channels. We are doing you a favor. Feel free to thank us later.

1. JacksGap

JacksGap began as a means for English boy Jack Harries to document his gap year and share his adventures with far-away friends and family. Since then, the channel has grown to include his twin Finn, and together they vlog about their everyday lives and more. We adore Jack and Finn and their adventures. Who doesn't like a friendly pair of handsome twins.
