Phil Lester (AmazingPhil) had quite the year, along with his best friend Dan (danisnotonfire). He had a new book, a tour, tons of videos, etc. With 3,245,395 subscribers, his channel has been really successful and incredibly enjoyable to watch. We decided to look back at the whole year of 2015 and see AmazingPhil’s top ten videos of the year.
10. “Phil Reacts to His Old Videos”
Phil’s very first videos still remain up on YouTube for anyone to see, but it looks like Phil has been avoiding these videos for quite some time. He decided now was the time to watch them again and videotape his reaction. Let’s just say Phil has come a long way since his very first video. This video got 2,092,730 views, 181,589 likes, and 424 dislikes since it was published on June 22nd, 2015.
9. “THE NOT-MILK CHALLENGE”
Phil finds out he is lactose intolerant, so he gets Dan to help him find a milk substitute in this video on AmazingPhil. According to Phil, goat milk is pretty gross. This video got 2,144,374 views, 127,241 likes, and 315 dislikes since it was published on February 15th, 2015.
8. “Phil and Tyler’s MIRACLE BERRY TASTE TEST!”
Phil and YouTuber Tyler Oakley set out to test Miracle Berries, which are supposed to alter the tastes of different foods. In this video, they taste some pretty unusual things to be eating, and it’s amusing to watch.

7. “SHOCKING LIE DETECTOR! (with Connor and Phil)
This video is a collaboration between Phil and YouTuber Connor Franta. They use a lie detector to learn each other’s deepest secrets… or maybe just to have the chance to ask each other weird questions and get shocked randomly. This video got 2,338,607 views, 168,002 likes, and 324 dislikes since it was published on June 5th, 2015.
6. “TUMBLR TAG 3! (With Dan)”
As we all know, Dan and Phil are always on Tumblr surfing around. So this time, Phil asked viewers and fans to post their photos or edits of Dan and Phil with a certain hashtag so Dan and Phil could look through the pictures for the video. Let’s just say a lot of people are very… creative. This video got 2,873,010 views, 193,724 likes, and 607 dislikes since it was published on October 3rd, 2015.
5. “DAN AND PHIL JAPAN HAUL!”
As you may know, Dan and Phil spent some time in Japan. Being the enthusiastic guys they are, they bought a ton of stuff. Viewers and fans wanted to know what souvenirs they got from their trip, so they made a video of them showing us all the interesting or impractical stuff they bought. It got 2,934,301 views, 158,259 likes, and 403 dislikes since it was published on May 3rd, 2015.
4. “A Day in the life of Dan and Phil in JAPAN!”
Phil was very excited to be travelling to Japan with his best friend Dan, and so he documented his day for all of us to see. Dan and Phil do these “Day in the life of Dan and Phil” videos sometimes, and it’s always interesting to see what these dorky guys do in their time when they aren’t making and editing videos. This video of Dan and Phil in Japan got 3,089,713 views, 183,824 likes, and 753 dislikes since it was published on April 22nd, 2015.
3. “Phil is not on fire 7”
Once a year, Phil invites Dan onto his channel to do a Q&A type thing where they ask the viewers to tweet them things to do, and then Dan and Phil do whatever it is in this video. This is something a lot of people look forward to, and watching this video we see why; it’s extremely funny and entertaining. This video got 3,123,193 views, 310,785 likes, and 601 dislikes since it was published on November 29th, 2015.
2. “Easter Baking – EXTREME TRIPLE CHOCOLATE NESTS”
To add to the Easter spirit, Phil invited Dan to bake some goodies. Not only baking, they instruct the viewers on how to bake it as well, as they always do in their fun baking videos. Phil also announced his extremely exciting news at the end of the video. Dan and Phil baking for easter scored 3,510,619 views, 187,094 likes, and 547 dislikes since it was published on April 4th, 2015.
1. “Dan and Phil PUNK EDITS IN REAL LIFE!”
The most viewed video of the year from AmazingPhil is one where Dan and Phil decided to become punk (temporarily of course). This one is actually really interesting as well as humorous. We all see edits of celebrities, and their is such a thing as a “punk edit” where someone edits a photo of someone to make them look punk. Phil and his best friend Dan, who is also in this video, both have a Tumblr, and are constantly snooping around people’s accounts. Phil said he often sees punk edits of himself, so he decided to gather supplies from eBay to make the edits become real life. The video managed to gather 5,526,204 views, 280,451 likes, and 1,012 dislikes since it was published on January 24th, 2015.
YouTube has been very good to Phil this past year, and we are looking forward to many more videos and fun with AmazingPhil! Feel free to leave a comment or tweet us @CelebMix
