YouTube career


Kelly opened her YouTube account under the name KPopp on February 18, 2006 with a sports video showing a teenager Kelly doing a skateboarding trick called an "Nose Stall". A few years later following the sports video, she started doing Call of Duty and MW2 commentaries, and Let's Plays on Heavy Rain, Red Dead Redemption and hilarious glitch videos.

Then, KPopp began uploading Let's Plays and playthroughs on action-themed, mystery-themed and shooter-themed videos, including Justice in Pike's Basin live commentaries, flash games and other types of games such as Façade. KPopp spawned a fanbase named "Popptarts", and references her subscribers as "Popptarts" and "Manlytarts"; at times.

On an interview with SimsTabloid, KPopp explained her reactions to numbers of subscribers, "It is a little strange.  I remember jumping for joy and freaking out when I got my first subscriber.  Everything after that has been awesome, but I haven’t freaked out quite as much!  I’m just really happy because I love interacting with the people who watch my videos.

I love replying to comments and messages when I can.  It sucks because I get so many.  There was a time when I would reply to every comment and message I got.  I had to stop doing that after about 40,000 subscribers because it would take 4+ hours to respond to everything.  YouTube has been the reason for so many of the best moments in my life so far.

I’ve met so many amazing people that when I really stop to think about it… I just cannot control my emotions. There are so many things that viewers don’t always see about YouTube content creators.  A lot of people want to point fingers and call some people fake or in it for the wrong reasons, but I’m very lucky.  I think people can tell that I am a genuinely good person. Or maybe not, I can be kind of mean to video game characters because they do not have feelings.  I swear, I’m a really caring and nice person though!  I’m this weird mix of awkward, sarcastic, and nice so it usually just results in silliness."

KPopp explained how she got the idea for The Sims 3 Hunger Games, "I was reading the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy and it just kind of hit me. I knew it would be a lot of fun.  I just had to figure out how to make a Sims 3 interpretation of it. A lot of times when people come to the series they are expecting it to be exactly like the Hunger Games in the books/movies.  

Clearly, that would be difficult to do on the Sims.  I enjoy the fact that my Sims Hunger Games is based more off of luck and chance for the most part.  I let the Sims have their free-will and very rarely control them unless it is challenge time or something else important.  The series just makes me laugh so hard.  It is always really fun to rewatch what happened when I am in the editing process.  I am really glad people seem to be enjoying it as much as me."
