Welcome to YouTube Millionaires, where we profile channels that have recently crossed the one million subscriber mark. There are channels crossing this threshold every week, and each has a story to tell about YouTube success. Read previous installments of YouTube Millionaires here.

This edition of YouTube Millionaires is a bit special. We’ve interviewed someone who has passed not just one million, but also two million subscribers. That someone is SeaNanners AKA Adam Montoya, a YouTube gamer who is interesting enough to earn his own feature in CNN. We spoke to Montoya about gaming, Omegle, wine, and anything else that crossed our mind.

Tubefilter: First and foremost, what do you have to say to your two million YouTube fans?

SeaNanners: Hey you…Yeah you…All 2 million of you.  Thanks :)

TF: How do you think your style distinguishes you from the many other gamingfocused creators on YouTube?

SN: Everyone is a beautiful little internet snow flake.  Who really knows for sure?  Right place, right time, right attitude?  Life is random.

TF: You have had an on-and-off relationship with Machinima in the past. What are your current feelings on the network, and networks in general?

SN: I tend to stay neutral when it comes to the topic of networks.  I try not to give it too much thought.

TF: You initially started by mainly posting Call of Duty videos. What made you decide to incorporate a wider range of games into your videos?

SN: Variety is key for me.  Playing different games keeps the experience fresh.  Big budget, indie, random flash game… It makes no difference to me.

TF: What was the inspiration for the Omegle video you posted when you hit 2M subscribers?

SN: My girlfriend recommend I make an Omegle video.  So I made an Omegle video 😛  I’ll probably do it again.  It was a ton-o-fun.

TF: You often make videos with your fellow YouTubers. How do these collaborations come about, and is there any particularly channel you would like to create a video with in the future?

SN: YouTube is like any other workplace.  As you get to know people, friendships develop.  There’s no science or strategy to it.  Certain people just “click.”

TF: Any big projects on the horizon?

SN: Yup!  It’s a secret though… Sorry.

TF: Finally, your Twitter profile notes your interest in “video games, cooking, and wine.” Do you think certain wines pair better with certain types of games?

SN: I’d recommend pairing a 2010 Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon with any game involving dinosaurs.  It’s a winning combination.
