What? You thought 17-year-old viral sensation Alex Lee’s 15 seconds of fame were up?
While other overnight sensations, like Kieran From T-Mobile, Matt from Red Robin and Steve from Starbucks, have already faded into oblivion, Alex has just unveiled his plan to conquer another part of the internet – YouTube.
In case you somehow missed it, Alex skyrocketed to fame overnight when Twitter user @auscalum posted the following photo featuring a mystery cashier at Target. Alex trended worldwide, was even searched more than Justin Bieber and Nash Grier on Google.
Alex originally started out with just one Twitter account. He eventually made an Instagram account after his appearance on the Ellen show, and now has over 2 million Instagram followers, as of writing.
He eventually decided to cross over and become a Viner, and has around 400,000 followers on Vine – putting him in the same league as Viners like Sam Wilkinson.
