“Professional Vlogger” is a pretty new occupation. While watching the Smosh Games YouTube channel might seem like a bunch of friends having fun, we followed host and founding member Mari Takahashi to see how the team comes up with ideas, figures out what shows are working, and what happens during 8 hours of shooting.
