WATCH: The Shaytards Post Live ‘Happy Birthday Shay!’ Video

Shay Carl is a big YouTube personality and one of his five YouTube channels is called “The Shaytards.” Today is his birthday and Shay has started a huge trend on Twitter to support his channel. Using the hashtags #HAPPYBIRTHDAYSHAY and #2MillionSHAYTARDS, Shay is hoping to obtain 2 million subscribers to his YouTube channel … He’s pretty close, so maybe you could make it happen.

To start off, the live video is having a few technical difficulties, but they’re doing their best to make it a fun video for Shay. Have a look at the crew from Maker Studios who are trying to surprise Shay on his birthday.

In the meantime, Shay is being held hostage in their conference room as you can see in the below Instagram pic.
