‘The YouTubers who raised us’: TikTok trend pays homage to the ‘Ryan Higa Era’ of online video content

  • A TikTok trend pays homage to YouTube’s pioneering Asian American content creators over an audio clip of “Nice Guys” by Ryan Higa, Chester See and Kevin Wu.
  • A new generation of YouTubers, including Skunky and David Parody, took to TikTok to share how their original idols inspired them throughout their journeys.
  • Other TikTok users were subsequently inspired to show how much of an impact these early creators had at a time when Asian representation on screen was scarce, by creating their own videos to the nostalgic song.

Long before Simu Liu brought kung fu to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ryan Higa taught the entire internet “How to be Ninja” from his own living room back in 2008. 

In a new TikTok trend, users are paying homage to the Asian American YouTubers who once dominated the video sharing platform at a time when Asian representation was even more seldom seen in mainstream media than it is now.
