Popular YouTuber Casey Neistat has a knack for viral hits. He’s called out Apple, blew through the entirety of Nike’s #MakeItCount filming budget traveling around the world and still got the shoe brand to showcase the video on its site, and Neistat most recently gained notoriety for snowboarding on the back of a Jeep through New York City during the January 2016 snowstorm. And now he’s coming to Disrupt.
Neistat is an expert at producing good content and has close to 2.5 million YouTube subscribers and more than 400 million views to prove it. He also produced an HBO show with his brother Van called “The Neistat Brothers” in 2010, which was an eight episode series following the two on various adventures.
On top of all that, Neistat is the co-founder of Beme, an app that lets people produce four seconds of unedited video to send to friends (and friends to conversely send their unedited reactions).
Naturally, we wanted such a content pro to explain his motivations and techniques. Neistat will join us on stage this May at TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2016 to talk about what makes for good content and how he determines his next viral sensation.
In the meantime, enjoy this crazy video of Neistat snowboarding through Manhattan alongside the NYPD:
