As an April Fool’s hoax, Howell and Lester started the DanAndPhilCRAFTS channel on April 1, 2015. It consists of a single movie showing them making square snowflakes out of paper, edited in an amateurish manner and peppered with hilarity. In just one week, it had over 154,000 subscribers and 500,000 total video views. “Don’t cry, craft” became a widespread Internet meme as a result of the video, with the Standard-Examiner describing it as “one of the most well-known YouTube lines of all time.” At Summer in the City 2015, the channel received the YouTube Silver Play Button. Howell and Lester released a second video for that channel on April 1, 2016, in which they conducted another funny instructional, this time on how to make glitter faces.
