Here's everything you've ever wanted to know!
Whether you've watched a video of his or not, we can 100% guarantee that you've heard of LeafyIsHere before. As one of the most popular YouTubers on Tumblr in addition to boasting an incredibly prominent social media presence, Leafy has created quite a name for himself. So, if you're out of the loop or simply want to know more about the man they call LeafyIsDad - then just read ahead!
If you can think of anything else we should add because you're his number one fan, let us know in the comments below!
LeafyIsHere is actually 21-year-old Calvin Lee Vail from Layton, Utah. He has since moved to Seattle, Washington.
The majority of his videos consist of Leafy commentating over the top of Counter Strike: Global Offensive gameplay videos - but he sometimes showcases other games such as Doom and Overwatch.
Are you a fan of LeafyIsHere? There's probably a strong chance that you refer to yourself as a "Reptilian" then, or at least part of "The Reptilian Brotherhood".
He may share Counter Strike videos at the moment, but back when he started YouTube aged 16, he was actually uploading Minecraft videos!
One of Leafy's first and most notable YouTube fights happened with MrBlackDarkness666 after calling him both the "SADDEST MAN ON YOUTUBE" and the "SADDEST MAN ON THE INTERNET".
His fights didn't stop there, because he has since been involved in drama with the likes of h3h3 Productions, Pyrocynical, Keemstar and Mr Content Cop himself, iDubbbzTV.
Following iDubbbzTV Content Cop on LeafyIsHere last September, criticising his "lack of chin" amongst other downfalls, Leafy's subscriber count began to immediately drop. At an average of 2k unsubs a day, SocialBlade appears to show that he has lost a total of 300,000 subscribers in total and has never fully recovered from the blast.
In 2016, Tumblr named him the 18th most popular YouTuber or "Internet Sensation", after the likes of Tyler Oakley, PewDiePie and Dan Howell.
