The 8 Year Evolution of The Sidemen (2013 - 2021)

The Sidemen have without a doubt become one of the most notorious groups on all of ISnets. A touch of genius from KSI, Miniminter, W2S, Vikkstar123, Zerkaa, TBJZL and Behzinga has built the channel into a behemoth with more than 10 million subscribers. However, the Sidemen weren't always this large successful channel, and in order to get to where they are today, they've had to endure some serious ups and downs. This video will cover that journey, from a random GTA V online group called "The Ultimate Sidemen" to the Sidemen of 2021.

Thank you guys for watching, like and sub if you enjoyed, SunnyV2 XO ❤

    I always had my friends talking about The Sidemen at a school in about 2013-4 I got my iPad Just next year and since then I haven’t stopped watching other then taking a 2 year break just forgetting them

  • Rickz

    Feels great to have been watching them before the Sidemen existed

  • Ihtisham Hussain

    I feel like this guy really likes JJ, like he’s the only member in the group. At leas that’s how seems from this vid. Especially saying Tinder changed everything, when the Holiday videos exist. Then to say something else boosted the channel, and it’s JJs fight 😂 It just seems like this guy sees the Sidemen as JJ.

    The holiday videos were the ones that upped the standard for sidemens content. Also Sidemen clothing was a huge thing too. But dope vid

    6:33 whether you think the sidemen beef was fake or not, KSI did not say in that video that it was fake, please watch the whole video he was impersonating people saying it, he goes on to explain that it’s real.

    I started watching Ksi, Deji when he was CSG, maybe even vik and w2s back in 2012 when I was in the 7th grade. Was there before the sidemen got together. Haven’t stopped watching them since. They made my childhood.

  • so mad bro
    so mad bro

    can you stop making yourself the arbiter of morals? Seriously you constantly assume you know what someone was thinking and you say, oh it's bad and he's a whinny biscuit, like in your skydoes video. Can you please just be someone who presents the story rather than make a moral stance and make sure to separate opinions from the facts when discussing a creator

    • ralfopi

      @so mad bro what?? are you like 10?

      @Zeto Kaiba because in for example his video on skydoesminecraft (and every other video of his) he props himself on this box and says, no dis is bad. And also he is obssessed with boogie

  • kenyoungmartin

    Crazy to think the crew fell off in comparison to vanoss’ friend group. Imo aside from them being older somewhat sp33dys crew had the personality advantage, wildcat is just vanoss’ jahova, delirious has always just been the guy to laugh like d4 or sidearms, daithi is unique along with terrorizer but their personalities always were way less entertaining to me than the crew. Similarly though the least charismatic one in the group was the most popular in both cases imo, Evan and sp33dy (aside from more shy members like D20, g18, or moo for example.) No hate, just never understood why they didn’t last simultaneously. The only difference I ever saw is that evans editing has always been really good. Regardless I hope for AMP to do something similar as vanoss’ group, carve a way similar to the sidemen but in my opinion with more personality and less aimed at children (like 2Hype). Regardless it’s fun to see friends come up doing content that’s more fun to make and digestible to more people.

    I’ve only ever watched ksi back in high school in 2013 when he’d play fifa and do the get hyper videos.. sadly I did jail time for 7 years for some serious shit. I got out just before the pandemic hit and learned that my guy is out here making big moves since I’ve last heard of him. Truly a good influence on the youth.
