Lincoln Velasquez has been on YouTube since 2008, but it was only recently that his channel Cong TV blew up.
Earlier this year, Cong uploaded a video of himself reacting to achieving 100,000 subscribers (Silver Play Button). As of writing, he just needs a few more users to reach the 800-thousand mark—currently at 799,225. That's more than cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao and chef Erwann Heussaff combined, and merely a couple hundred thousand less than Wil Dasovich.
From his hit 10 Utos bit to the highly anticipated daily video blogs, Cong has established a brand of online content that appeals to people from all walks of life. Whether he's laying down the rules of vaping or simply unboxing an innocent package, the consummate mix of craziness and cleverness always results in something ridiculous yet relatable, as evidenced by his overwhelming number of views.
So what's all the Cong commotion about? Allow us to suggest some of his best webisodes so far:
One recurring character in Cong's videos is his brother Junnie Boy. In one of the most recent and funniest entries, the latter shows that he also has a knack for comedy through an impromptu skit.
7) Paano Kung Nanalo Ka Sa Lotto?
Aside from vlogging regularly, Cong ocassionally does monologues on basically, anything under the sun. His to-do list if he wins one billion dollars in the lottery gave birth to one of his trademark lines.
Definitely not a makeup ad, the title comes from Cong making fun of his mother's LeBron James fandom. We then get to see him playing actual basketball and breaking ankles.
5) Finding ASUS ROG
Cong has long been pleading for a gaming laptop so he can upload clips faster. The episode sees the realization of that dream, and his fame causing pandemonium among fans inside a mall.
4) Blind Date
The good friend that he is, Cong proves his growing influence and sets his "vlogmeyt" Roger Raker up for a rendezvous with none other than actress Julia Barreto, who was willing to accommodate.
3) The Wedding Videographer
Having volunteered to document his friend's nuptials, Cong ended up making a music video. The wedding had to settle for mediocre shots, while he and his girlfriend could afford to do a montage.
2) '90s Anime
Everyone is obsessed with nostalgia, and Cong is no different. He fondly reminisces the afternoon viewing habits of our childhood days—composed mainly of Tagalized Japanese cartoons.
What starts off as a vlog about replacing a broken device segues into him contemplating his success and explaining why he keeps shouting, "Power!" We haven't seen Cong this serious and grateful.
