BuddhaCharlie was the alias of Charles Ellingson, an early YouTube celebrity who made videos of himself doing various acts such as replying to videos with video responses, eating food, making songs dissing other YouTubers on a toy keyboard, or other comedic and slightly provocative content. He was known to make strange noises during his videos, which gave him his nickname as the "EEEEE" guy.
Despite being relatively well known back in the day, most of the videos of him that were not uploaded by himself were deleted or have gone private over the years. As a result, it is almost impossible to find any surviving footage of any of his videos.
BuddhaCharlie was a YouTuber who started making YouTube videos in early 2010. He made videos such as prank call videos and vlogs during this year. In 2011, he began to make video responses to various videos on YouTube which made him very popular. Almost all of these video responses are lost and only a few have been archived. By June 2011, he had over 750 videos on his channel, his highest amount. Shortly after, he removed most of his videos, which dropped his uploads to around 110. Throughout the year, he would return and make new videos and then delete them over and over again. A notable time was in September 2011 in which he began to diss the popular video game "Minecraft" which gave him a lot of flack. This continued into March 2012 until his first channel was deleted.
He created numerous channels after this, one notable example being the "MrBuddhaCharlie" channel, created in May 2012. On this channel, his videos mostly consisted of dissing popular Minecraft YouTuber "Yogscast" and the video game Minecraft itself.
He created over 20 YouTube channels throughout 2013 to 2019, with channels sometimes only lasting up until a week. As a result, almost no one was able to archive the videos from these channels, except a few.
