5 Of The Best Shane Dawson Videos

5 Of The Best Shane Dawson Videos

Shane Dawson has changed the Youtube game, and here's his best.


Shane Dawson's name might ring a bell for anyone of us who have watched a Youtube video a time or two. Being one of the first real-deal Youtubers, Shane has made a lengthy career doing skits, eating food, making conspiracies, and as of late, incredible video series that rival what anyone is doing.

These new video series, with the help of cameraman and co-editor Andrew Siwicki, have been something that many fans have been obsessing over.

Announced a few days ago, Shane will be doing a deep dive into the highly controversial life of Jake Paul, and ahead of his new series' release, I've decided to go back to the very beginning of Shane's new video series format and pick out five of his best video series.

So, without further ado, here is my list of Shane's top five videos below!

1. The Secret Life Of Jeffree Star

Probably one, if not his most successful, video to date, "The Secret Life Of Jeffree Star" was the video that gave Shane the credit he's deserved. Jeffree is considered a pretty controversial Youtuber, and what was nice about this series is the fact that it really dived into what Jeffree's world is like aside from the glitz and glam that most people get to see. Not only do we see a deeper side of Jeffree, fans also got a chance to see just how successful he really is (especially with his businesses!) This is one of Shane's bests, and it's set the tone of just how amazing one could be with a video camera.

2. The Truth About Tanacon

Tanacon was a mess. You know it, I know it, we all know it. The important thing about this video series was the fact it highlighted both parties, not just one side of the playing field. Moving into a more investigative side of things, Shane was able to piece together some of the nightmares that were Tanacon with this video series.

3. Shane's dad series 

The video series that could be credited for starting it all is Shane's dad series. The three-part series is one of Shane's more serious videos, and it's easily the most personal on his Youtube. The video is emotional, honest, and most important of all, it's real.

4. The Grav3yardGirl series

This video series is a little more all over the place. Starting out the series with titles like "$10,000 makeover" and "$40,000" surprise weekend," it's revealed (four videos in) that the real reason for the mini vacation was to help Grav3yardGirl's channel. Once the actual premise of the video series kicked in, fans got to see a side of Bunny that hasn't been revealed...like ever. Additionally, we got to see some ghost hunting adventures, which is always a fun time.

5. Switching lives with Trisha Paytas

Trisha Paytas, much like Jeffree Star, is a little controversial. While this video didn't dive as deep as the Jeffree Star video, it was a stepping stone of what's to come. The dynamic between Trisha and Shane is so refreshing, and you can tell the two have been friends for a very long time. Switching lives with the Mukbang queen couldn't have been easy, but Shane did perfectly...with a glitter Starbucks cup in hand.

An Ode To The One & Only, John Mulaney

The man with a "moral backbone of a chocolate eclair."


I was a busy, busy college student, with mounds of homework and exams to study for and no time to simply relax. So, naturally, I was laying in bed, looking at the latest additions to Netflix. I stumbled across the comedy section, and a familiar name popped out at me - John Mulaney. I vaguely remembered my friend telling me that I had to watch him. After convincing myself that homework and responsibility could be postponed for an hour, with one click of a button the voice of John Mulaney filled my dorm room.

And I never looked back.

Now, this might sound dramatic. However, if you are reading this and have yet to be entertained by this legend, I would like you to pause, go watch the most recent standup comedy special on Netflix - John Mulaney, The Comeback Kid - and then continue reading. For those who have had the opportunity to enjoy any of his comedy specials, then you might even say I am understating how fantastically hilarious he really is.

An Emmy award-winning, American stand-up comedian and former writer on SNL, John Mulaney captivates his audience with relatable jokes and entertaining stories from his own life. He also does a great job of voicing his political opinions in stories while still making it fun and light. His dynamic and engaging stage presence not only charms the audience but adds to his dazzling performance. He recently starred in the movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, voicing Peter Porker, aka Spider-Ham, and has also been on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, as well as the hit Broadway performance Oh, Hello.

College can be some of the best years of your life, but they can also be some of the most challenging. Many students find ways to cope, whether it be material pleasures or consumable highs, anything that can bring a sense of peace and give us a break from the craziness of school and the imminent stresses. Therefore I have an offer for you - watch John Mulaney and cast your worries to the wind!

But alas, if you have made it this far in the article and are still not convinced, allow yourself to go back in time, when you were sitting in the car on vacation, stuck between your siblings because you were the unfortunate soul to get the middle seat, but spot those Golden Arches on the horizon...

"We started chanting, 'McDonald's! McDonald's! McDonald's!' and my dad pulled into the drive-thru, and we started cheering! And then, he ordered one black coffee for himself and kept driving. And as mad as that made me as a kid, in retrospect, that is the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life."

C'mon, just try it.
