Mark Miller and Ethan Hethcote set the Guinness World Record for the most selfies taken in an hour back in 2014, but now they’re making headlines for much sadder news.
The YouTube couple have broken up, announcing yesterday that they had an incredible five years together, but it’s time to part ways.
“We have had a very fast, very fun, very exciting five years,” Ethan explained in a video titled ‘Why we Broke up,’ which was filmed in Ethan’s apartment. “Our professional lives and our personal lives just got really intertwined. I don’t mean to say that in a bad way, because it’s an awesome thing. I am so grateful for the experiences that we have.”
Ethan continued, “We just need to re-evaluate how we’re doing individually because everything was just so habitually together.”
They do promise that they are still “best friends”.
“It’s not a big deal; we’re not trying to be dramatic about it,” Mark added. “This is such a positive move for both of us.”
People were pretty upset about Mark seeming more upset than Ethan, so he wrote this note to his fans:
“Guys guys guys! people will believe what they want to no matter what you do, but for what it’s worth, please gosh darn just calm yourself!! CHEEEL! We’re both humans, just like you, we cry, we laugh, we bleed. We chose to communicate this to you all hoping it would give you a LITTLE insight to where we are. We shot for 40 minutes, I edited this down to 5. I know I was tearing up… NO SH**, I LOVE that man up there. Crying feels great, give it try sometime. As far as videos, yeh videos still coming. Got a Mexico City video in the works now, pumped to get it out there!! Alright, we cool? GREAT. Has [sic] a good one dudes xo.”
