Michigan State University applauds viral video about Skyrim
The university even issued a press release about it.
Michigan State University: Student video goes viral
Published: Feb. 15, 2012
The lives of twins Justin and John Grosjean changed when they released a video - "Skyrim: 2012" to their channel on YouTube.
Justin, a media arts and technology senior at Michigan State University, and his brother John, a student at Oakland University, have always loved the games produced by the company Bethesda Softworks. They began making videos about six months ago and it was only natural that they wanted to make a video out of one of the games they love - Skyrim.
But they didn't expect it to be such a big hit.
The number of subscribers to their YouTube channel also went through the roof, from 66 to almost 15,000 in a week. The video currently has almost 2 million views, and their channel has more than 23,000 subscribers.
The Grosjean brothers have officially made GrosBrosPros a limited liability corporation and are also now partners with YouTube, meaning they will continue to produce content on a regular basis. The film event coordinator for the Phoenix Comic Con reached out to the brothers and asked if he could show their films at the event. They produced a follow up video to their original success called "Skyrim 2012: Part Two," which has almost 290,000 views. The Grosjeans hope to eventually grow from making web episodes to feature-length films.
