Once you have hit a niche, is it a worthwhile risk to venture outside of your comfort zone? Dakota Laden sure thinks so.
A teenaged YouTuber with over 5 million views and over 55k subs, Laden is famous for his spoofs of the Travel Channel show “Ghost Adventures” and it’s charismatic lead men Zak, Nick and Aaron. His lampooning of the trio with his friends has even landed him on the show as a guest investigator after winning a music video contest.
Though he had made different videos before this outside of the spoof category, it seemed that the “GA” bits were a sure bet. Taking a leap of faith with his following over the last couple of years, Laden with help from his creative friends has continued to produce original content and more spoofs. Some pieces to check out would be his “Iron Man” spoof, his spoof of “Jersey Shore” called “Teenage TV”, and his “Dark Knight Rises” spoof.
