Shaytards - Love in its purest form

A look at a fantastic family, amazing entertainment and most importantly my second family
By: Frederik


About two years ago, while sitting in my room browsing pet videos on YouTube i came across a video called -  "How To Make a MEAN KITTY Love U!" - In this video a friend of the uploader called Shay Carl. His bright mood and positie attitude made me check out his channel. At the time he hadn't uploaded so many videos, although some of his best videos as: - "ShayCarl PWNS His wifes NOOB!" -

At the time, Shay had already started on what would eventually be a hugely successful youtube series the daily vlogs: The ShayTards. When i discovered the vlog shay had been doing it for about three months, as of today the ShayTards have existed for about 2.5 years.
Shay lives the good life in Idaho, America. Hes married to Katilette aka Mommytard, with this beautiful woman hes got four kids, two boys and two girls, from the top Sontard, Princesstard, Babytard and Rocktard

The fantastic thing about these vlogs is that every day you can open up your subscription box on Youtube and watch 3-20min footage of the shaytards lives. Shay quit his job as a radio host now being paid entirely by the internet. Katilette is a stay-at-home wife taking care of the kids when Shay edits the footage of the previous day just before uploading it to Youtube. When you watch these videos you can't help but notice that every single day for the past 2.5 years they have all been in a good mood, loving and caring for each other.

The photo to the right, was uploaded to the internet by Shay, some years ago. One day Shay received an email by James Blunt himself asking if he could use the picture as the album art for his newest album. At first Shay didn't believe it, he just replied "sure you can". Several months later when James Blunts cd hit the streets Shay got quite the shock. 

After a couple of emails Shay had gotten backstage passes to James Blunt's nearest concert in NY. There is a vlog with footage from the concert, and a private picnic in Central Park with James Blunt himself

When watching the videos you cant help feel as if you are part of a bigger thing. The sea of positive comments from fellow Shaytards beneath the video makes you feel welcome, and the countless of different fan made intros to the "show" gives a good idea of the scale of it all.

What i've told you in this post is just a fraction of the storys and "adventures" that this amazing family experience. And the best of it all, you can join them. So hit subscribe and kickback and relax.




P.S I'm going to have to warn you, the show is insanely addictive, and you will become a better person if you start
acting like the ShayTards

  1. Do you know which video it was that shows Shay reading the email and being skeptical about it? I've been trying to find it for a while...

  2. Hi Cat!
    It's called: You're Beautiful. Isn't it fun to see how much weight Shay has lost over the past year? :D

    Here you go! :)
