Vitaly Zdorovetskiy (Born: March 8, 1992 [Age: 26]) is one of the most controversial members of the YouTube community. He’s also Justin Beiber’s favorite YouTuber! This Russian star rose to fame pulling off pranks and recording them. He’d upload those videos to YouTube and boom! Instant success. His most popular prank videos are his Russian Hitman character. As the name suggests, Vitaly dresses up in a Russian hitman garb, briefcase and all. He proceeds to scare people in the videos to make them think something bad is going to happen to them or someone else.
On top of pranking others, he embarrasses himself willingly too. Vitaly is notorious for streaking during sporting events. Usually, the Russian star will have a funny message written on his chest when he does this.
Most of Vitaly’s collaborations include:
- Roman Atwood
- Dennis Roady
He worked the threesome to make a movie called Natural Born Pranksters. This film centers around their pranks. However, it was mostly rehashed material. This earned the movie a couple of weak ratings including a 3.8 out of 10 on IMDb and a 42% on Rotten Tomatoes.
One of the most controversial videos Vitaly has put out is a How-To video on picking up girls. In these videos, he walks up to random girls and spits game at them. While he looks at this as flirting, some of these girls (and viewers) find it annoying. They believe it cultivates a society where a guy can badger a girl into reciprocating feelings for them.
This outrage was further exasperated in March 2018. FouseyTUBE threw sexual assault allegations against Vitaly. She accused the star of attempting to rape a prostitute while on a trip to Brazil. She also called him out for being in an orgy with friends during the getaway. Vitaly, who has been in a porno in the past, said FouseyTUBE was just trying to get attention. He accused of her taking advantage the #MeToo movement for fame.
