A born prankster-

Since his childhood, Danny has been a prankster.

While growing up, he used to prank in Walmart and as he grew up broke, he couldn’t afford a camera, so he couldn’t shoot his initial pranks.

Dreaming to become rich-

Since his childhood, Danny wanted to become rich.

He would cut out magazines related to wealth and stick it to his walls.

As Danny was very interested in sports, he wanted to grow up to become a professional athlete.

A sports enthusiast-

Danny started with baseball and at 14, he started skating.

Later, he switched to running and then to triathlon and other sports.

At 20, Danny realised that he couldn’t become a professional sportsperson but as he wanted to be involved in sports, he started training athletes.

Sports trainer & landscaper-

Danny moved to Los Angeles and began working as a personal trainer for athletes.

He was providing active isolated stretching training to athletes participating in Tampa Pro and Damn Am skateboard competitions.

While in Los Angeles, Danny used to visit parks like Stoner Park, etc. and would set up his massage table and would stretch the skaters.

During that time, he was homeless and used to survive on Ramen noodles.

At that time, Danny used to move to and fro between Los Angeles and Florida.

He used to work as a trainer in Los Angeles and in Florida, he used to do landscaping.

Danny hated landscaping thanks to the hot weather of Florida.

Introduced to YouTube-

As Danny was working as a trainer to skaters, he got referred to Jason Lee, an American actor and a former professional skateboarder.

He began working with Jason on training people and Jason observed that he was funny and was confident that he could become a good actor and so, he told him to work on Instagram and YouTube, so that it would become easier for him to get a gig in an acting audition.

As Danny was inspired by his words, he started working on Instagram and YouTube.

YouTube & Instagram-

On 6 March 2014, Danny started a YouTube channel by his name.

Initially, he made stretching and skating related videos but later, shifted to pranks.

Danny’s friend Chris Chann was a prankster and he had many subscribers on his YouTube channel and this inspired him to do pranks on Danny Duncan YouTube channel.

Becoming successful-

Since the beginning, Danny believed that he would definitely become a successful YouTuber.

He has been publishing videos on a regular basis for many years and this made him a successful YouTuber.

When Danny received his first brand deal which was worth $5000, he quit landscaping.

Thanks to all these, Danny’s financial struggles ended.

Now, he is a very successful YouTuber and as of January 2022, he has more than six million subscribers on Danny Duncan YouTube channel.
