It’s fascinating to watch a YouTuber grow up online

We’ve all seen those “dude takes a picture every day for five years” type of YouTube videos, but it’s incredibly fascinating to watch the process happen to an actual YouTuber over the years.

In fact, do yourself a favour and check out Remy Mumby’s Food Oddities channel from beginning to end. The YouTuber started his channel in 2008 at the age of eight, filming himself eating quirky and sometimes disgusting snacks. This includes everything from armadillos and wasp cookies to Balut and guinea pig.

Fast-forward eight years and, well, you have an unintentional growth chart in YouTube form. It really drives home the effect of the internet era on our lives in a way that the Facebook Memories feature can’t quite capture.

Check out his first and last videos (as of writing) below:

Mumby’s eaten some rather odd and disgusting things over the years, check out some of these snacks:
