Smosh is an American web-comedy duo consisting of Ian Hecox (born November 30, 1987) and Anthony Padilla (born September 16,1987). Their franchise started in 2002 when Padilla created a website titled Smosh.com. Padilla stated the term "Smosh" came when he mistook a friend saying "mosh pit" for a "smosh" pit. This is the main reason their second website, SmoshPit, got its name. After gaining a hobby for video-making in 2003, Anthony Padilla was joined by his friend Ian Hecox to create lip-synching videos in 2005 to post them on the YouTube website. The parody videos were based off television theme songs such as Mortal Kombat, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Pokemon. After their videos became popular, the team posted additional videos and became one of the most popular channels on the site. It reached 1 million subscribers in 2009, 5 million subscribers in 2012, 10 million in 2013,16 million in February 2014 and over 21.5 million as of March 2016.
