A creator with a long history on YouTube has returned to the world’s top video site. Kassem G (real name Kassem Gharaibeh), who gathered millions of subscribers and 439 million views on his personal channel thanks to web series like California On and Going Deep, has posted his first new video in seven months: a 52-minute live show set in a yard behind an old trailer.
The untitled show is a collaboration between Gharaibeh and the comedy network Jash. In its first (and thus far only) episode, Gharaibeh is joined by his brother Omar and his buddy Peter Gilroy. Together, they hang out, get high, answer questions from social media, and chat with guests like Amy Pham.
The new video is only the 11th one Gharaibeh has posted to his channel since July 2014, and fans have all sorts of theories to explain why he has returned. “Guess you’ve burnt through the Disney money,” cracked one Facebook commenter, referencing the big payday Gharaibeh received when the network he co-founded, Maker Studios, sold to the Mouse House back in 2014. “The truth is, I’m still very, very rich,” responded Gharaibeh, “and I think that’s the best time to come back and start making videos, when I don’t need to.”
There no word on Gharaibeh’s Twitter as to when he may deliver a second episode of his live show, but many of his fans are excited to see him again. “I’ve missed this man,” reads a YouTube comment that has received hundreds of likes. “That nose is still big as ever though.”
