It's time to meet our favourite Tiny Planet Explorer.

Have you seen someone popping up in PewDiePie and JackSepticEye's videos recently? Have you been called a Tiny Planet Explorer and not known where it came from? Have you ever had a galaxy hand and needed to know if you were the only one with such a injury?! Well, we're about to answer all these questions by letting you know that an amazing YouTuber called KickThePJ exists!

We've rounded up some of our favourite facts about PJ and the career he's had on the Internet because over the past eight years he's achieved so freaking much it's unbelievable. Even though his channel may only boast 1 million subscribers, PJ has some done seriously impressive things with his time online. If you think we've missed anything, please let us know in the comments below!


PJ Liguori [LIG-OR-EE] started YouTube back in 2008 with a video about Christmas Safety.


He was born in Peterborough on the 11th of December 1990, and went on to graduate from Farnham University for the Creative Arts in 2013.



His three most popular videos on his YouTube channel star Dan and Phil as special guests...


He refers to his followers as Tiny Planet Explorers, and therefore has the best merch in the entire world.



He moved to Brighton in 2016 and thanks to signing with Revelmode, has become best friends with the likes of PewDiePie, Marzia and JackSepticEye!



KickThePJ is most known for making short films, crazy characters (such as a killer clown called Wiggles) and original music - plus all the traditional nerdy content you all love and desire!



Oh yeah, and he totally produced his own TV show with The Jim Henson Company called Oscar's Hotel for Fantastical Creatures that literally stars every single YouTuber on the planet.
