“For those that may have missed it somehow, I was featured on @anthonypadilla ‘s channel for an episode talking about the lives of faceless YouTubers if you’re interested," the caption said.

“It’s a lot harder for people to be scared of something [if they] know what it looks like,” Corpse Husband said in the interview with Padilla.


Keeping his identity a secret has taken a huge toll on his social life, he says.

Friends also question where he gets his money from. "It's a very Hannah Montana thing." he joked.
