Video Blogger and YouTube Celebrity; Creator of the Google-Funded YouTube Channel SourceFed

Philip DeFranco, more recognized by his YouTube username "sxephil" or his online alias "PhillyD," is an American video blogger and YouTube celebrity. He is most notable for "The Philip DeFranco Show," usually abbreviated PDS, a news show where DeFranco presents a news article, and then gives his opinion about it. His videos are centered on current events, sex, politics and celebrity gossip in which he gives his opinion, usually presented in an ironic manner and with frequent jump cuts to create a fast-paced feel.

He has over 1 billion views, over 3 million subscribers and is the 79th most subscribed YouTuber as of July 2, 2013. DeFranco started his YouTube channel in 2006. His large audience led to his winning of a Spore Creature Creator contest and Wired's Sexiest Geek of 2008 award, both open access online polls. DeFranco also created three other YouTube channels: PhilipDeFranco, a personal vlog-style channel, SourceFed, an original and Google-funded YouTube channel and ForHumanPeoples. SourceFed spawned a spinoff channel, SourceFedNERD, as well. In 2013, DeFranco sold his channels to Discovery Digital Networks.
