While YouTube is full of incredible musicians such as Troye Sivan, Dodie and Jon Cozart, some of your all time favourite creators have also made their part in musical history without you even realising. We’ve done some serious sleuthing – it’s what we’re best at – and we’ve found an incredible 11 examples of instances when YouTubers were in music videos. From appearing as extras to full on stripping (yes, really), you’ll be shocked that you ever missed them!
Mark Ferris in Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’ video
Mark makes a shocking three appearances on this list- he sure does get about! The first one sees him all-out bopping with Ellie Goulding in the video for ‘Burn’.
Lele Pons in Blink 182’s music video
Let’s get this straight, Lele Pons plays a HUGE part in the ‘She’s Out Of Her Mind’ music video by Blink 182. The entire story basically centres on her running through the streets naked. For longtime fans of the band, you’ll know that this is a brilliant reference to Blink’s iconic “What’s My Age Again” video.

(Oh and wasn’t actually nude during filming.)
