Theprankera47 was created in 2012 by Dwain Little, but a video was not posted unil 2015. Dwain posted the first few videos either by himself doing small skits, or trolling videos featuring different people in it. Anthony Griffin who is mostly known as Kingdarkskin, came on the scene in the following year in February on a trolling video. The trolling video was originally featuring Kingdarkskin as just a guest but the two stuck together ever since. Even though the channel consists of only 39 videos, the two have done a great job in racking up the subscribers and on some videos, the views. One video where the two were building a fort made of toilet paper and got caught and was forced to leave the store, that video reached over 14,000 views which is currrently their most successful video. The most recent video that has been posted by Theprankera47 was 6 days ago with only 97 views due to slower production. They have also gained a small fanbase including views from bigger, more successful YouTubers.
Anthony was a YouTuber as a younger kid at the age of 11 with channels by the name of agriffin1001 and also crazeboyproductions he also gained a good bit of success on the CPB channel. After a couple of good years with YouTube he deleted the channel and started new on Theprankera47 a couple of years later. Dwain made videos and edited them but didn't really do anything with them. He enjoyed editing.
