HowToBasic is an Australian[1] YouTube comedy channel that is part of the Fullscreen network,[5] with over 16.8 million subscribers. The creator of the videos does not speak or show his face, and remains anonymous.[1] The channel primarily features bizarre and destructive visual gags disguised as how-to tutorials. The channel first gained popularity in 2013.

As of October 2021, HowToBasic has over 16.8 million subscribers, making it the 5th biggest Australian YouTube channel.[6] The channel's estimated net worth is US$2 million as of February 2018.[1][2]

The channel was briefly suspended on two occasions: once in 2014 and again in late 2015 on presumed violations of YouTube's policy on misleading content. Soon after each time, the channel was restored, and suspension lifted.[1][7]
