Yvick Letexier aka Mister V, despite having an English nickname, Mister V is a French humoristic Youtuber born in 1993 with around 4,5 million subscribers on YouTube. He is from a little village next to Grenoble in the Alps: Veurey-Voroize (Remember the name). He started when he was 15 to publish his first videos on YouTube. Compared to others quite famous French Youtubers as Norman or Cyprien fait des vidéos, Mister V do not target young’s or teenager’s viewers and tends to do whatever he wants, it gives him more authenticity to me.
You might have seen him with the famous American youtuber Amanda Cerny. He started his YouTube career by using humor based on observation, it was not original since many other youtubers were doing the same, but it was still funny.
In this video he compares the difference, in a funny way between France and the USA. To summarize France looks lame and the USA looks cool:
What I enjoy with Mister V is when he stared to produce video with no sense logic, this really put him a part of the other youtubers. This video illustrates quite well this humor.
Mister V is part of two youtuber groups apart having his own YouTube channel. The first one, is Bagel created in 2013 and bought by Canal Plus one year later. I would recommend to you to check their videos, quite funny to me.
The other one is the Woop Gang maybe less professional and Mister V seems to get along better with those youtubers:
He recently started a career in the music industry more specially in the French rap things he always dreams about, with his first album released in May 2017 named: Double V (Double V because of Veurey-Voroize).
In this video (In French again) he explains why he wanted to relapse an album. He explained himself because he is seen by the public in general not serious enough to rap because of his humoristic YouTube career.
A song of his album Double V:
Mister V the French youtuber, tries new stuff by diversifying himself: you can see him as an actor in “Le Manoir” not such a good movie. He also designs a new line of shoes with Asics in 2018. To make it short, he is everywhere but to me he stayed a person down to earth here his car that he had changed recently. He also loves in his story Instagram to act like a redneck as we call in France “beauf”.

To conclude, Mister V is to me part of the French culture, an artist coming from the internet to follow. I recommend you watch this excellent interview (in French) made by Moloud Achour of Mister V
