Being a video enthusiast, Sutton started availing himself of modern technologies and social media as a teenager, creating his content and sharing it online. Along with his friend Trujillo, he created an account on Vine, a short-form video-sharing platform for making 6-second clips and sharing with friends. The service, which was sold to Twitter for a reported $30 million a year before its launch in 2013, became extremely popular, having over 200 million active users.
Sutton’s account named Candy Shop developed a great following by viewers due to its hilarious content. It portrayed the two friends competing in content quality and number of followers with Jake Paul, their friend and social media personality, who has become an internet sensation through Vine and later YouTube. Appearing in numerous videos by Paul garnered Sutton early fame and popularity among fans. Also, most of his own videos on Vine went viral, further increasing his popularity, as well as numerous viewers and followers.
In 2015 Twitter announced that Vine was disabling uploads, and not long after that, the service was shut down. At the time, Sutton had over 3.5 million followers.
Chance and Anthony
After Vine was shut down, Sutton transited to YouTube, and quickly started making and sharing videos, along with Trujillo. They created a channel named Chance and Anthony in 2017, and started uploading various types of prank videos, as well as challenge videos and vlogs. Their first video entitled “Breaking into Jake Paul’s House (Prank Wars)”, in which they did a prank on Paul, got a massive response, collecting around 500,000 views in its first week.
Their subscribership continued to grow, enhancing Sutton’s fame across social media – the number of their subscribers went up to 2.7 million.
Their videos strike a balance between funny and smart. They are considered well thought out, positive and funny, with a unique style based on conversations with friends, jokes and various parties. The most watched ones are “Cutting Tessa Brooks Hair (Funny Prank)”,” The Start of Our Honeymoon (Ohio)”, “We Dyed Jake Pauls Hair!!! (Prank Wars)” and “Dyed The Martinez Twin’s Hair”. Jake Paul is a regular feature in the videos, and his brother Logan Paul also appears in them.
Other people targeted with their pranks include the twin brothers Emilio and Ivan Martinez, who also became popular through their YouTube channel. Chance and Anthony channel has a regular upload schedule – every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, fascinating the viewers with each new video they share.
Also in 2017, Sutton became a member of a social media group called “Team 10”, created by Jake Paul. It is a group of YouTubers, online personalities and influencers, among them the Paul brothers, Trujillo, Erica Costell and Tessa Brooks, who often collaborate to help create content, and so become more popular.
Their prank and challenge videos are made at the famous Team 10 house, purchased by Jake Paul and located in Los Angeles. However, the following year Sutton left the group, stating that he wants to focus on his solo career. In a message to fans on Twitter, he wrote: ‘I believe it is in the best interest for the future of my career that I start to focus on myself’, adding that his intentions are to ‘grow and develop myself in the gaming space, as it’s a huge passion of mine’.
