In 2017, Danny Casale noticed how negative and polarizing the internet was. He sat down at his computer for a couple of hours and created a humourous video animation about misinformation on the internet. This video was “Snakes Have Legs” and today has tens of millions of views.
He has over eight million social followers across platforms, he’s written a book UR Special, and in 2021, he minted the NFT project Coolman Universe which sold for $3.6 million in just 3 minutes.
Danny’s journey is a great example of how preparation and authenticity are the keys to success. In this episode, Hala and Danny talk about Danny’s life journey, being a creator in the early days of YouTube, his recipe for going viral, how he stays inspired, how he monetizes his art, his NFT project Coolman’s Universe, and so much more.
