AdamThomasMoran: The Russian Version Of Ray William Johnson?

I don't know if this guy is deliberating copying Ray William Johnson's format or not (probably is my guess) but if you watch this following video from the Russian language channel called AdamThomasMoran I think you can see a bit of similarity to Ray's Equals 3:

With the quick cuts and the the host jumping around the screen intermixed with video clips, um, yeah. The video is entirely a RWJ clone with a Russian twist. If you look at the channel details, he lists Ray as his influence.

And more importantly, he's getting subs, 69,787 to date, which makes him the most subscribed youtuber in Russia. And he's starting to get massive views: more than a million on the video he uploaded 3 days ago and over 2 million from the one posted on Youtube a week ago. He joined Youtube at the end of July 2010 and for the 21 videos he's uploaded he has over 25 million views. Makes me wish I knew how to speak Russian and had thought of copying Ray first.

Next step is to get partnered up and he's set. Whoops, he already is.


  1. Yeah, this guy admires Ray. But I think he is awesome, very talented and even funnier that Ray, and he is just 21 y.o.! But you are correct about copying the shows, in Russia it is very common to copy famous shows. They even copied Facebook and Classmates application as well and called it "Vkontakte" and "Odnoklassniki"

  2. Honestly I think he is funnier than Ray. I Looked at Adam's video because it was always on the Youtube homepage and I'm glad I did. I have been A Ray fan ever since he came out but I enjoy Adam much more even if he did copy Ray.

  3. It's better to fail in originality then to succeed at immitation... A lesson most Youtube personalities should take to heart, it's just shameless now.

  4. I want to learn Russian.
