EXCLUSIVE: Astronauts Wanted Enlists YouTube, Vine Stars to Help Viewers Vent and Smash Stuff
The newest series from Astronauts Wanted, the digital content studio behind Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart’s “#HeyUSA,” wants viewers to vent their frustrations…so some of their favorite YouTube and Vine creators can help them out.
In the series, called “SmashUp,” YouTubers Vincent Cyr and Kaitlin Witcher (along with other talent from the world’s biggest video site) will share various pet peeves that piss-off some of their biggest fans. To help these people attain some level of catharsis, the stars will not only vent about those frustrations, but also literally smash some object or another, such as a lava lamp or a fish tank filled with glitter.
In addition to the aforementioned YouTube stars, Vine talent participating in the series include Scotty Sire and The Gabbie Show. Astronauts Wanted is in the process of locking up other YouTube and Vine influencers to appear in future episodes.
Audience members can tweet at these creators with the #SmashUp hashtag to provide input on future episodes. You can search the hashtag to see what’s been suggested thus far.
“SmashUp” is produced by Sarah Flanagan.
