The Story of the Wardrobe Face

March 9, 2011

It's my face. On a wardrobe.

In a video that I posted about about a month ago, My Crib 2, I made the mistake of mentioning to you all that I had a story to tell, and then decided not to tell you said story – a decision that seems to have left many of you in a state of dire frustration. It’s like when someone tells you that they have a secret, but follows straight afterwards with an oh, I wasn’t supposed to mention that – forget I said anything. It’s always massively maddening, and they’re lying in a sense anyway, because they know that if they really, truly, honestly couldn’t tell you the secret, then they wouldn’t have mentioned it in the first place. And then of course, eventually, they give in and spill the beans anyway, which is exactly what I’m going to do now. So, with all of that in mind, here’s The Story of the Wardrobe Face. But be warned, it really is a bit odd.

It all starts when I was in my early teens (probably) being forced through the ritual of getting your school photos taken. I say forced, but school photos were never really that big of a deal for me. We got to miss first period, I was always pretty ace at pulling the right smile, and unless it was a milestone year for me, my Mum didn’t particularly mind if she received a copy of the photo or not anyway. On that particular year though she decided that, sure, I’d like one of them, and so the photos arrived in due course. The important thing to point out here though is that we didn’t just receive a single photo that particular year, but also a bunch of little, passport photo sized versions of the main photo. Which were all completely useless as actual passport photos, because I was smiling in all of them. But, you know, we bought them, so we kept them.

Months, or possibly years go past. If you haven’t already noticed, I don’t tend to remember the dates of events like this very well, just the events themselves. I was a bit older, not at all wiser, and in the middle of a prank pulling phase – a phase out of which I’ve never really escaped. My Mum was dating a guy called Lee at the time (who’s a jolly nice bloke, I still see him sometimes) and they’d been seeing each other long enough that she had a few pictures of the both of them in her bedroom, and in other areas around the house. And so, seeing pranking opportunities where nobody else would, I decided to cut out all of the passport sized photos of my younger, uniform clad self, and replace any photo including Lee’s face, with my own face. Yes, just like how some kind of insane, serial killer would. It was very creepy, I was very proud of myself, and the reaction from my family was one of confusion, followed by “oh, Charlie” chuckles.

Over time, for no particular reason, one of the the little photos from the prank made it’s rounds around my house. I stuck it to our front door at one point, on the inside just above the handle, so that everybody could leave with a little picture of my head in their, well, heads. It actually stayed there for years, because we completely forgot that it existed for the longest time. However, after rediscovering it later I stuck it to my bedroom wall, and then later still took it on the journey to London, where it now resides. For the most part, I now use it as an aid for framing my videos correctly. And now you know.

Although that story is a bit weird, to be honest, my main reason for not mentioning it in the video was that I just wouldn’t have been able to fit the entire tale in there. I think I kind of needed to put it in a blog post, so that you could all have the freedom to sit back and digest the mad thing that I did. Because it is still a bit weird. But you asked for it, and you’re welcome.

  • Hannahismee

    Thanks. I know want to get as far away from your videos as possible, but alas, the internet is everywhere.

  • Ally

    Oh Charlie…your slightly mad, but I guess thats what keeps us viewers interested.

  • Alex

    Haha Brilliant Story!

  • Petra van den Hoven

  • James Foster

    Over Christmas we had a ‘NOEL’ sign, all the letters were separate, so my dad changed the letters around everyday, my mum had no idea and was getting really freaked out :3

  • Kristen

    You’re crazy. It’s awesome.

  • Katie Mclaren2

    aaah i love you :’)

  • Kirsty Anstee

    wow. haha. i think you should make it a point to keep it and tell this story to your children on day (:

  • Joe Miller

    What an epic tale.

    Charlie, do you think you’ll ever re-record the song you did with Mr. Minchin?

  • Rebecca Edwards

    That’s brilliant! Why have I never thought of that? Actually, my sister got into my room once and put a smiley face sticker over my face in my whole secondary school photo! I didn’t notice for about a week until my boyfriend pointed it out to me!

  • RandomJellybeanz

    Love it! That is a brilliant story :)

  • Rebecca Edwards

    Also, you got to meet Tim Minchin!! I really felt your pain when I realised the microphone was off =( but look on the positive side – you got to meet one of your favourite comedians! That’s pretty awesome =] xxx

  • Caroline Walthinsen

    Well, now I know :-)

  • ElineDoesburg

    You are a honest guy

  • Marnie


  • Allison

    At least you didn’t replace your mum’s face with your face….I feel like that’d be slightly creepier. Maybe.

  • Emre

    OMG hahahahahha!!!

  • Kristie Smith

    that.was.brilliant :D

  • Ella

    Nice, but that might have been strange seeing pictures of you and your mum EVERYWHERE..

  • thebasementcreature

    Haha that’s really not that weird. Nice to finally know the tale.

  • Ohaimarina

    Thats awesome i have to do this too.
    youre such a creeper charlie.

  • Agos

    I think I like creepy stories :)

  • JazzRain

    I’ve done tons of stuff like that, so if you’re a little weird and crazy, then I guess I am too? hahah

  • Samantha

    I laughed, reading this entire thing in your voice and drawing out the correct words. Talk about weird.

  • LotteNienke

    Hahaha, that’s so funny xD

  • lianne mary jane

    You’re my hero, Charlie~

  • Virunee

    I see now.

  • PanicMoon

    i would have loved to have been in your family while growing up…i did stupid stuff like that all the time and my Mam just constantly seemed irritated and concerned for my well being. My Mam always made a point about giving EVERYONE in my family a school photo, which is really embarrassing when you can tell the uncle you haven’t seen for three years couldn’t give a toss about what you look like in a school uniform :)

  • Kjersti

    “Charlie, the Storyteller” Sounds fun^^- You’re AMAZING!! <3

  • Jo

    That’s a brilliant story.

  • Laura Rigby (:

    Wow, your cool :’)

  • amanda

    i can’t say it’s creepy cause i did the same thing. also i read this in your voice. i suppose that’s creepy

  • Meghan Brianna Richards

    I find it hilarious how had anyone else done this it would have been considered “weird”. Charlie does it, and it’s “brilliant” haha. I think it amusing to imagine no matter, along with being both weird and maybee a bit clever. :)

  • Delorfinde Telcontar

    Firstly, I read this while listening to “Journey’s End”. Secondly, you said “one of the the little photos from the prank made it’s rounds around my house” when it should have been “its”, and because I’m a grammar pedant, I’m going to point that out. And thirdly … I’m going to shut up now ;)

  • Eline Hulspas

    That was the most awesome story i’ve ever read! :)

  • Caitlin.

    What a lovely wee story :) I want to do that now butt instead replace my sister’s faces with mine. So then it’s all just me and my parents. That would be awesome. (it is just me and the parents IRL due to the siters leavign home)

  •!/doctorscmpanion TheDoctorsCompanion

    Oh Charlie. >.<
    …That's a pretty good idea, actually. I might have to do that :)

  • Eline Hulspas

    That was the most awesome story i’ve ever read! :)

  • Chloe Dunn24

    loool im so doing that!! :) <3

  • Emilli Steenbeeke

    Insane serial Killer *chuckle*

  • Isabelle May

    Of course, this now needs to be turned into a meme like Terrifying!Pertwee

  • Maiu :D

    Sorry charlie, but that’s not wierd, actualy it sounds like something i would do too……well but that’s just me; there are many people that think i’m a little bit wierd…. even my mother (who is worried about it). Ok, maybe it is a bit wierd …. but it’s funny :D, cool story charlie!

  • Lizfth2

    Anytime I read something you’ve posted, I read it with your voice in my head. It’s quite amusing.

  • Ash


  • Soldansbarn

    haha awesome story Charlie! thank you :)

  • harry


  • Britt

    Not that weird Charlie. But I lol’d at the insane killer comment. Haha

  • OH!

    Oh, my gosh! Me, too!

  • Femke

    awesome! I love the story haha =)

  • Olive

    My friend and I did that, except we replaced all the photos in her main hallway with pictures of Megan Fox because her dad called Megan Fox “hot” one time. Just a joke. It was fun because her parents didn’t notice for two days :P

  • Vic

    Ahaha, that was quite a weird yet wonderful story to digest – MY FAVOURITE KIND!
    ps. charlie, you’re very eloquent on screen and in written text. i love reading written text with full punctuation and no spelling errors (is that weird?)

  • Alex Palacio

    Oh my god! So do I. Haha.

  • HelloImAwesome

    Hahahahahaha! That was so genius! – I think I will try the same thing as you did. Now .. where did I left my passport photos?

  • SophieDK

    I should really learn to prioritize my time better – I should have been reading up on stuff for tomorrow at the university and in stead I’m reading Charlie blogs… can’t be good :p

  • Aneeka

    Yeah, you’re right. That is a bit odd. :P

  • LunaLovewell

    …That’s something I would have done if given half a chance.

  • Rachel

    You are amazing.
    There is a misplace apostrophe there, but I still love you.
    Even if something belongs to , you still write it as without an apostrophe.
    But Charlie is lovely and amazing.

  • Kennyjmcdaid

    wow…that story is so pointless but thats cus it did annoy me wen ya said ur not goin to tell us in the video :) THANK YOU CHARLIE :Dcaps for the craic :P

  • Ashby

    I like the reference to the serial killer, it made me crack up. And that was a little odd, just think about it; “Yeah, nice guy I just felt like replacing his face with mine ;D” – That’s so creeper.

  • Anonymous

    You would expect a story like this in a good children’s book (you know, with a rascal (is that the right word?) as main character who is funny but also very kindly.. I loved such books :)
    And you are very good for my english vocabs! I learned a lot by reading your texts and watching you videos (but maybe my English is more terrible than I thought, than just ignore the last sentence).
    And one last thing: When you think of England, you think of Gentlemen who are intelligent and kindly and very polite, all these things.. and I always think of you, like a modern version of this Gentlemen ;)

  • ib1197

    my mom thinks you are cute

  • Anne van Rijen

    you are awesome

  • Myrr Borello

    I read a couple of things you wrote, and I find them excellent, really funny. I hope to meet you one day, Charlie McDonnell. Greetings from Argentina:)! Myrna.

  • Johanna

    Haha, brilliant story! It’s so much fun doing something mischievous ;)

  • Maisie Gilbert-Rolfe

    That was the epic tale of Charlies Little Wardrobe Photo.

  • Maisie Gilbert-Rolfe

    That was… weird…

  • Isabella

    Yes, this is kinda weird, but funny xD

  • Nickie


  • Claudia

    hahaha so funny xD

  • valerie

    what even, charlie. what even.

  • Piper

    My family hides my sisters old id card round the house and whoever finds it, moves it.

  • Amanda Zehner

    Oh Charlie, that’s hilarious!

  • SaoirseXD

    ‘OH, Charlie’…… ^_^ DO you GET it?!?!

  • Britmom

    I could more easily understand you replacing the face if you didn’t like your mom’s boyfriend, the fact that you like him makes it more whacky and amusing!

  • Abby Sosna

    It’s nice to know that there are others out there who dedicate time to tedious little projects such as this simply for fun and personal satisfaction :)

  • jozxyqk13

    after the weeping angels episode of dr who last year my housemates and i ended up playing this game where you moved one of the wooden giraffes from the lounge so that people would enter/leave a room/sit on the loo/wake up and be greeted by a giraffe staring at you…

    yay creepy fun.

  • KirstenPwns

    Well then, that was a neat little story.
    I’m sure we all have a few of them.

    PS – You’re awfully good at writing :)

  • Nisreen_1997

    I was wondering what was up with the photo too, but I didn’t expect that lol
    Oh Charlie, you’re too funny :)

  • Becca_runner

    Charlie you just made my whole entire birthday! your hilarious.. :)

  • kota


  • Countrylady318

    That’s not weird at all, Charlie. Just funny. We do things like this all the time in my house. :)

  • Rachelthepooh

    you are so cool just as i expected! :D

  • Lyss

    Hahahaha I still have a million of my little passport-sized school photos. You were more creative than me in finding a purpose for them lol.

  • Raqui98

    I want a wardrobe face too !!!

  • ShariAnn Katterhagen

    I don’t think it’s as creepy as you think it is…at least, I was laughing the whole time while reading it.

  • Karimster

    Oh Charlie.

  • dualdestiny

    Thank you for following through on a promise. And to be fair I don’t think it’s all that weird. Maybe the bits where you put it on your mother’s boyfriend’s face, so it might’ve looked like she was dating you, but regardless.

    How exactly do you use it to properly frame your videos?

  • Jan

    you’re not allowed to smile in your passport photos?

  • Tian

    you are? they dont allow it in most places…

  • Natalie

    No your not allowed to smile, have a fringe/ bangs and you have to be a certain size

  • SunjumD

    I think I just had a heart attack.
    He said jolly nice bloke.

  • Bailey

    Well that’s poo. I asked the lady who took I and she said I could..

  • Ke$haOfTheFlies

    Haha that isn’t nearly as weird as a few stories I have. Like the peanutbutter and condoms story. . .

    Eh? Did I just win?

    I think soo!

  • Lexie Arva

    haha thank you for posting this story :) its funny and wierd, yet entertaining as always :P

  • Luvinlife828

    Happy Birthday [insert name here]. Congratulations on living another year.

  • Jennifer Clark

    My GERM-X has a little holepunch protector thingy that reads ‘C—- wuz here’ stuck to the top of the dispenser. Unfortunately I failed to notice this little memento until after C—- had graduated from my class, so I never got a chance to correct his spelling. :(

    See? It’s like faces being stuck to doorknobs, only the faces are tiny notes, and the doorknobs are ethanol disinfectant dispensers, and there’s really nothing in common at all other than LOOK AT ME I AM POSTING A COMMENT ON CHARLIE’S BLOG.

  • Allison Villaizán :D

    lol, you are too funny Charlie :D

  • ImNotaGuest

    I don’t get it

  • a.Being

    See? That wasn’t hard. It was very entertaining.

  • Tegan

    thank you :D

  • Mackenzie Symes

    haha I can’t imagine your “weirdest” prank. That’s a pretty good one though.

  • Berserker_Taughty

    I think I kind of needed***

  • Molly

    I do love your story. I was wondering if you would read the last chapter of the American Classic, There Eyes Are Watching God in a video. No it’s not religious. But my English teacher is so dry when she reads it, and we’re almost finished the book. I don’t think there would be a better was to end it, than to have you read it.

  • iwannagotolondon

    Thank you for sharing your story charlie!!! :) That sounds like something i would do but instead i use suze ormans face!- scares people more.. Once i cut out a lifesize picture of her face and put in on the bottom of the toilet seat cover. so when my brother lifted it up, suze would be staring him right you know where! you should try it sometime! (putting the picture there, not actually staring at someone…)

  • Maia

    Charlie, you are adorable. Also, yes this was quite amusing. :)

  • Lisbeth

    Hahaha, nice story!

  • Nannasonne

    Charlie… you mad. But you know we all enjoys it! :3

  • ellieanor

    I can just imagine you doing that xD

  • yuli

    Charlie, you are the most brilliant man on this planet.

  • Nicole

    My god that seriously is just the funniest weirdest thing I’ve heard all day. Although I have done much worse.

  • 3FigsInAPapayaTree

    I have been waiting the whole time since you published the video for you to tell us about that… and I am finally satisfied…

    Now that’s cool :]

  • Sarah-louise ;)

    To be perfectly honest I completely forgot about it!! So seeing and reading this was like a little cherry on top of my perfect ice-cream day :) thanks!!

  • Mia

    OH MY GOD. XD I think I would do the same.

  • Grace

    thanks for sharing that. I never saw THAT story coming.

  • Anonymous

    No-one would’ve cared if telling that story made your video “too long.” In fact, I doubt people actually care about whether or not your videos are really morally sound either, which you seemed to be concerned with in your last blog post. I would rather get more personal vloggish videos (like Alex’s) than just one video every fortnight. Not that you read these comments anyway.

  • Izzyduzit00

    i think what makes you different from most guys is that you are very thorough and communicative in your videos. Most people would say, “yeah, that’s me there” and leave it at that, but you have an entire story about a single picture which you could easily have made a video about. It seems to me you could do interesting vlogs with ease if you tried rather than 3-4 minute skits. Your alot more interesting than most and your wide audience is intersested.

  • guest

    It’s not that weird really,I have seen weirder, come on Charlieissocoollike, fan girls want weirder.

  • Secondclasskid

    aw, you just put a smile on my face! really sweet story, would’ve never expected it ^^

  • franzi

    actually not so weird as I expected :)

  • Louise

    How random. I like it.

  • katie

    thats pretty random but still awesome and hilarious it would’nt surprise me if my brother did something like that =]

  • mel

    I would love one of those stuck to my front door too. lol

  • Ester


  • Ali

    sounds like you do the right things in life: confusing people and forgetting a lot! :D just like me.

  • Surfing_rockz

    I think you seem pretty cool, however, I was wondering why you type and use words as if you’re American? (such as period instead of lesson, dating etc), when you’re definitely English. I know a lot of American people watch you, but I think you should embrace your ‘Englishness’. After all, one of your first videos was about how to be English…

  • FoxesPlayingBanjos

    We do say periods instead of lessons here… Oh… And hey, Charlie! My cousin is a friend of your brother’s, or he’s a friend of a girlfriend, but whatever, I know you by association! :D

  • Lucie

    Kind if needed? Oh, Charlie *chuckles*.

  • Maxxraiff

    lol lol lol…LQ LQ LQ

  • Brianne

    my family and i did this too!! we would find old pictures, cut out the face, and put them on other pictures or around the house and see who would find it first, haha you’re not weird ;) unless i am for doing that too….. haha

  • Lulu

    its not that wierd haha
    you should have told the story in your video, we don’t mind long videos :P X

  • Sani Evans

    Haha, funny ^
    It reminds me of that picture of all DW cast wearing Master’s faces from behind the scenes of “The End of Time”

  • Saskia

    A few months ago, I had the excellent idea to go around my flatmate’s room putting pictures of SuBo’s face on every face in her room. Not just a particular member of her family, but every member of her family, and the various postcards and CD covers. This was not the entire flat, but her small, fairly cramped room. It wasn’t until we stepped back that we realised how creepy it was to have over a hundred versions of SuBo staring back at us.

    My flatmate saw it and burst into tears. Fail.

  • Eli

    Lessons are called periods in secondary school in England, it’s just a thing that must have hopped across the pond and entered our common use language (:

  • Susie

    My flatmates and I did a similar thing to another flatmate, but with pictures of Susan Boyle. It took over an hour to cover her room, and she’s still finding them to this day. She wasn’t happy.

  • Nelly Shevchenko

    I liked that part in the end, where you say that helps you to frame the video. very practical! )

  • Brian

    The Prank, The Scissors & The Wardrobe! by Charlieissolionlike! :) No it wasn’t a Oedipus Complex! Since your the oldest sibling in your family, you probably felt you were the man of the
    house! Since your the oldest your Mom probably relied on you more to take care of your sister and brother when they were little. Most of the time a parent will favor the oldest or the youngest child for different reasons. Maybe because you were used to being the center of attention maybe you felt insecure at the time because your mother’s relationship with Lee was getting serious! You acted out by cutting out pictures of your face and replacing Lee’s face in photo’s with yours! You liked Lee but maybe you weren’t ready for a father figure or willing to share your mothers love or attention with anyone at the time. My Parents had six kids and I was second to the last!
    My mother favored my oldest brother and my father favored my oldest sister which made me very independent as kid! My mother made me take care of my sister who was the baby of the family! When my oldest siblings moved out or got married, me and my baby sister finally got the full attention we always wanted but something had changed we didn’t need it as much! Your mother is great and I hope she finds someone when your sister and brother are on their own!
    One thing I love about you is your so open and honest about everything! Your not weird! Your
    Charlieissohonestlike! :)

  • Georgie

    I think I’m in love with you.

  • Kai Stevens

    Ha I said “oh Charlie” and laughed to be for I read what you did lol I just knew that was coming as soon as you said there were pictures of him :)

  • James MA Bowling

    Im glad I follow you on twitter, because on twitter I found the link to this blog post.
    I watch all you videos but on the one you mentioned this I always wanted to know the strory so thanks for telling us all.

  • Alewawa

    You’re odd. I love you.

    200th comment. I feel special.

  • Hannahs_a_man

    I did the same thing.
    Only I did it with pictures of old mens faces cut out from newspapers and stuck them all over my sixth form room. Including the kettle. He keeps it safe from noodles.

    I think we know who the real psychopath here is…

    Nice story! LOL!
    I love how you include your british slang in your story! :) <3

  • Pietra

    Wow. This story is kind of weird, but nothing compares to these comments. Really.

  • Caitlin Soprano

    That is brilliant!!!

  • Albthy

    Adorei a historia :)

  • Samantha Justine

    I actually have the same photo of my face cut out and was placed over a picture of a small doll… but it wasn’t me who did it, it was my brother… -_____- hmmmm should take a picture of it sometime… :P

  • Shortymel2

    over-analyzing a bit too much perhaps?? guys just pull pranks, its what they do.
    &waayy too many exclamations points, dude! gives it a weird sound… hahaha

  • Brian

    Your right! :D I did use too many exclamation points! I just noticed that! I gotta stop that!!!!!! :D

  • Brenda Giménez

  • Ella

    FACE REPLACE… Like if you agree….

  • Cyberwoman

    LOL! That’s not a weird story Charlie. Well… not compared to some stories I could tell. I would love to start YouTubeing myself, but don’t know where to start, I’m afraid I’d bore people and nobody would watch them. What’s the secret to your success?

  • JellieDink

    We’re reading Hamlet at the moment so this sounds so much like creepy Oedipus Complex Charlie.

  • alittlemind

    That was it. Thats not that bad. I hought it would be a really embarrasing story xx

  • elsiee

    that wasn’t as weird as I was expecting, I can’t help being slightly disappointed..

  • Aimi Zahraa

    Its kinda weird. However, everybody has their stories that they wouldn’t want to tell but ended up telling anyway. Happens to me all the time.

  • lauren o’hara

  • Nat

    i kinda did something similar with the body of my mom’s favourite singer. i drew little penises in all his albums… my poor mom never said a word, i love her.

  • Rayne


  • Snooki

    this is not weird. this is what makes your character you silly head.

  • Leah :D

    Make a YouTube video called ‘The passport sized photo’ ! At least let your school boy-self star in his own video :-)

  • Missmoo24

    Hi Charlie!

I just wanted to say that I love you videos and look forward to seeing a new one. Please reply some how (maybe via video). Thank you for you time (I know you are probably very busy).

    YOU LOOK LIKE YOU COULD USE SOME BEEF STEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • maxine

    oh, charlie.

  • Anonymous

    I’m so glad I am not crazy when I thought the picture had moved! (if that made any sense. I hope it did.) Thanks Charlie for keeping me sane through the last few weeks of my college semester!!!!

  • Mitaki

    charlieissoawesomelike yup that you are

  • Georgiadearevalo

    i actually love you :)

  • Lanakatharina

    Well i know that a lot of girls have your picture hanging somewhere near their head when they sleep.

  • Cibell

    Mystery solved. although i wasn’t one of the people who wanted you to tell the story in case it wa boring, and i am glad that you didn’t waste such an unimportant thing asa challenge, because i fear you only need about 4 challenges to go. ahhhhhhhh. i love your challenges (:
    Hugs from Germany

    Ps: i think i might have crush on you, i would tell you in person, but unfortunatly i don’t have the pleasure to live near you :(

  • Cibell

    And YES, cibell is my real name.

  • Darcynussey

    Hello Charlie!
    Im 17, and a Dr Who fan like you, im still adjusting to Matt Smith (I loved David Tennant) so I was hoping that when the new series begins, that you could do a video stating your thoughts? Hopefully im not the only fan who is still in the adjustment faze!
    Anyway, this comment isn’t entirely pointless; I have a suggestion for the Comic Relief Fail video! As you maybe able to tell in a moment, im not the greatest with computers – although I am managing to get through A-Level IT. So my idea was, could you record yourself singing the vocals and possibly get in touch with Comic Relief via the email address you previously contacted them on, asking if they could ask/beg/plead for Tim Minchin to rerecord his own vocals and email them to you, and then somehow combine the video and the audio? I don’t know if you’re rolling your eyes… or perhaps banging your head on a desk right now but hey, its just an idea! :D
    Hope you’re well and will be looking forwards to your next video
    Ps. I know this has nothing to do with the Wardrobe story, but clearly it is too long to post as a challenge Charlie and I didn’t know how else to get in touch!

  • Karina Montoya

    Oh, Charlie….i think you should marry me. because i really want to be Karinaissocoollike :)

  • Youhangup

    Charlie!! Me and my friend love you I wish we could meet you!! But we live too far I want the I found Charlie badge!

  • Chloe :)

    You are actually awesome. I find it weird that I live in London and have never saw you…

  • *~Sophie~*

    Ha ha! That’s the funniest/weirdest prank ever lol! Our family do a similar sort of thing, except we attach pegs to each other and hide them around the house… I suppose they’re not really that similar but, yeah… :¬D

  • Kendall <3

    omg thats actually the funniest thing ever right there ;D love you charlie!!!

  • Simface

    LOLOLOL that’s not weird! Ok a little… but I’d totally do that for a laugh!

  • Halley

    Sorry if this is irrelevant (which it is).
    So I don’t know if they have this in UK schools, but in the US, whenever we go on the internet, there are some sites that are blocked. Like Google Images and YouTube (and all of the other fun sites). But, I am glad to announce, YOUR site is one of the good ones that has slipped under the radar. We now have a fun way to pass time at school. :) Thank you!!

  • Ashley

    I don’t get how you suppose to be different from other “celebrities” if you barely look at the comments and NEVER reply them… Maybe you’re too busy pretending you’re someone else, someone who actually care about what people say (:

  • Erica Putze

    Oh the pranks that await for you when you get a girlfriend. However, hopefully any face photo cutting be initiated by your family instead of a serial-killing-deranged-teen-fan-girl.

  • Taz

    Irrelevant comment about This Is Me which I got as a very late birthday present yesterday: It’s bloody amazing. Kudos to you Charlie :) That is all.

  • Emi

    Wow. What a heart-wrenching story, Charlie.

  • hollylovesjello

    hahaha hilarious! nice prank charlie

  • Jeaneva Gagne

    Ha! Cute story Charlie. Don’t worry, everyone goes through an “insane serial-killer-like stage”. Perfectly normal, right? Or at the very least period of oddity durring their adolescent years. Anyways, at least your mini face is of some use to you now.

  • LaurenParadis_111

    Good use of those annoying mini-pictures. I’ll keep that in mind ;p

  • WingedRivers

    XD It’s not all that odd, it’s quite an endearing story!

  • Stevie :)

    Thanks a lot for mentioning the face charlie, now every time i watch one of your videos I just keep staring at it -.- <3
    PS: I am sooo going to do that now. Stick little pictures of my face like everywhere. and i mean EVERYWHERE. fun times :)

  • stevie :)

    Ahh, angry rant alert D: lighten upppp, he does have a life ya know. It’d take him like a year to read every single one of his comments… hes 21, maybe a bit older, he has other things to do with his time, methinks.

  • stevie :)

    yeaah the uk have that too, and its extremely annoying ;) i suggest you add this to your favourites on the school computors so that if its blocked you can still view it ;) magicccc… but why the hell is Google images blocked? Thats rather strange :L

  • D Maloney224


  • Auzzierock

    that was nice story…… i was wondering about that!


    thanks charlie man thats a relefe now i no there will be not sleeplessnight love u x night

  • Lrickershausershauser

    thanks charlie! you’ve made my life by recounting that bizarre, wonderful, and magical tale.

  • Sunnyray13

    Oh, Charlie. Silly Charlie. This is why we love you. You’re so adorkable- which is, in fact, a wonderful thing. I can’t see you as being shy, even though you’ve said you are! Then again, I don’t actually know you… Anyway. This may seem off topic and just weird, but I really love your accent. And yes, I’m sure you hear that all the time, but it’s true. I’m an American girl that just happens to really be fascinated by accents. And I was wondering- Are you all over there in England just as in love with our accents as we are with yours?


    LOL I love you :D



  • MonikaTanaka

    Ahh silly Charlie you hilaritate us all

  • cucumber shoes

    oh how many times i have wished i had enough photos to stick to every picture in the house. Now i wish it even more.

  • Becky

    Just thought I’d casually pop by to say:
    me and my friends lovee you! keep doing what you do pleaase!…;)

  • Teighlor

    I was laughing at this. I really want to do this now!

  • Katy Stegosaurus

    You need a tiny sticker of a wardrobe to stick on your actual face. A beautiful dichotomy.

  • Meg!

    Ahhh charlie i think you are really cool! when ever im sad i watch your videos to cheer me up! but sadly i just wasted a hour and a half watching your videos! oh well :)

  • Help a good cause!

    Hi Charlie,
    After hearing about your videos by a friend, I’ve done a little of research, and I realized that you are famous in many countries, which is really interesting for one of my projects.
    I am actually working on a project of “silent wish” in my school (sorry for my horrible english, my first language is french… in french, what I’m trying to say is called a “voeu du silence”). We (the members who are organizing that event) won’t talk for 15 hours to represent the 15 countries that are in revolution in North Africa and in the middle West of Asia. I really hope that you know what I’m talking about, even if my english is the most terrible thing you’ve ever seen.
    I am in charge of everything that is related to the promotion of this project.
    I would like you to make a video to promote my project, so it won’t only be at my school, but all around the world! It would be a great way to incite people to participate.
    Also, it would be awesome if you could do the silent wish too, and make a video of it! That way, people who watch your videos will more be aware of what’s happening in the world, and will know that some of those revolutionary countries need help.
    I didn’t knew any other way to contact you other than your blog, and I really hope that my comment will not be only one of the 173684187623871545 comments you get everyday, because this project is really important for me.
    If you are interested to participate, you can write me on the msn of the project: , or if you didn’t understood what I’m trying to say, I can write you another e-mail in french and you could google-translate it (I tried, but I didn’t thought it was better than what I can write by myself… but if you don’t understand, we can try it).
    Thanking you in advance!

    I like that everyone’s going to gloss over the aforementioned serial killer undertones and just say “Oh, Charlie, you’re so funny.” Does no one else have the urge bring up Freud at this juncture?

  • Anonymous

    Charlie, you’re kind of a nerd, if you don’t mind my saying. That’s really weird. Also, why do you still talk to your mom’s ex-boyfriend? I mean, sure, I still talk to my sister’s, but I wouldn’t still talk to my mom’s. That’s just weird.


  • Eve ƁƠƝƘЄƦƧ Ozouf

    Brilliant Idea! xD

    You have just inspired me to do the same. :D

    But thanks :) I hope that Charlie will understand (if he takes the time to read…)

    Serial Killer….wow….everyone totally ignores THAT part…

  • Boogie

    I discovered that my flatmate had read this blog post when I opened my cupboard in the morning, and there was a little charlie face stuck to EVERY SINGLE ITEM in the cupboard. The nutter had spent three hours cutting, sticking and sellotaping charlie faces to my baked beans.

    Personally, I’m a bit worried about her mental state. Just as much as I am about yours, in fact… putting your face over your mum’s boyfriend’s face?! WWFS*?!

  • Maddie Valley

    in second grade my parents somehow accidentally ordered hundreds of copies of my school picture, in every possible size–the smallest of which was, for some reason, stickers? i’m not sure why there even WAS an option to order pictures of your eight year old child’s face, but there it is… and i found one the other week stuck to the side of my bookshelf.

    That prank sounds like it was both hilarious and slightly oedipal.

    i think that story was funny, not to mention the prank…. it seems like something one of my family members would do.

  • Danielle Hanifin

    It’s funny that people always say they could never use a picture for their passport because they were smiling. The passport that I have now definitely sports a picture of me smiling. No one cares and I don’t look like a thug. All’s well that ends well, I guess. :)

  • Casey Norlin

    Charlie, I would like to know more about your siblings sometime. They seem nice, and I’m just curious about how you get along with each other and such. Thanks!!

    yeahh, i did this once. I (thinking that it was okay) cut out a picture of my brothers head while i was bored at home and taped it on a picture that was laying closest to me and for some reason it was my princible’s picture…? and so i taped my brothers head on to Mr. Brown and my brother came home and discovered the remains of his picture with no head and everyone thought i was planning to kill my brother… Lmao. it didnt go the way i planned..

    I didn’t really noticed that photo but after this story (quite weird story) I’ll probably look for it on your new films. Do you think it’ll disappear some day?

  • Hanna

    Dear Charlie,

    I know it’s not possible to contact you the way we could at the beginning, when anyone could write you something personally, not in a comment box or anything. I understand you are much too popular for that now, but I really have to drop you a few lines, so please forgive me I’m trying to contact you through a comment. This is not gonna be about your blog post (although I love all of them, and this one is no exception), and I really hope you can forgive me. I don’t know if there’s any chance you’ll ever read this or not, but I’m okay with the tiniest chance. I know that’s all I have.

    I’ve been watching your videos almost from the beginnings, so I’m kinda an old fan, which is weird and cool, because I could see all the interesting stages of your career. I even wrote a paper once for one of my uni classes that included you, it was about videoblogging in general, but there was a whole section about different aspects of what you do. Anyway, I really like, enjoy and respect your work, I wouldn’t say I’m a proper fan, cause I’m not squeaking for you or anything, I just love what you do and I’m grateful, because you inspire me greatly. I even tried to create an animation for your song ‘Bread’, cause I love it so, but then I saw it already got an animation, so I gave up.

    Anyways, I’m writing to you now because this week I got a letter from an English friend of mine who met you for a couple of minutes on Oxford Street not long ago. I’m a Hungarian girl and she knew how much I like you, so she was really nice and got a badge from you to send it to me. I don’t know if you remember anything of this or not (probably not, but I cannot know), but she said she mentioned to you that she has a Hungarian friend who watches your videos, and I just want to say that I was really happy about the badge, and even though I could never meet you in person, now it’s a bit like we’ve met, so thank you! It must have been an irrelevant and everyday thing for you, but it meant a lot for me, and I really want you to know that. I was very surprised and very happy about the badge, and I’m really proud to have it.

    That is all I wanted to tell you. Thank you for reading it.
    I wish you only the best things in life, as always.

  • Stephanie Chong

    I love your little stories Charlie!

  • Coolwindowshopper

    You know your story isnt all that bad or wierd at all:)

    You should make this into a video, Charlie. This would be a hysterical video!

    One of the options for my second grade school pictures was a sheet of stickers. Eventually my sister and I had put our faces all over the house: same end result without the creaticity and scissor skillz on our part.

  • ilona

    I have two or three big photos with different kinda frames, a sheet of sticker photos and a sheet of those passport kinda photos from every single school year, and sometimes actual passport pics or some trying-to-be-cool sepia pics. And a class pic from every year too. It’s just how the school pics are in Finland.. Though you can ofc decide if you want them or not. Sticker sheet is to give away to your friends, it’s a tradition. I’m actually now collecting a old sticker pics from my friends to my calendars back cover, it’s fun to laugh at them when they were like 7 or 10.

  • Shana Briddock

    would it be awkward to ask you to prom?

    And that is why, you Charlie McDonnell are the single most greatest guy known to man!
    And aliens and stuff… :D

  • Amelia Pond

    That isn’t that creepy. A tad odd, but more creative and LOL worthy than just odd. What is more creepy is that I just love reading quirky, useless stories about people like this. They make me smile.

  • Jamesc Griffin

    Thankyou for answering my request charlie !! :L

  • Luiza Maia

    It must have been really creepy to go to your home and see little Charlie’s faces all over.

  • mishfish3

    hey charlie,
    this is probably off-topic and completely random, but after hearing you talk about Doctor Who so much, I caved and watched the first episode!

    I’ve always felt like life was missing something. Thanks to you, I now know that it’s Doctor Who haha ;)

    lol. My cousins and I would go around and write things under picures that were hung in my grandmother’s house. The other day I lifted a picture up to find that the wall still read, “poopy doodle”. We were all about 8 at the time…so don’t feel bad.

  • Anonymous

    thats quite funny. I nvr got to take my high school grad picture… regret so much.

  • Someone

    Oh, Charlie


  • Lollipop

    You’re SO cool, man! Looove you! :D

  • Regan Hattersley

    Dear Charlie,
    I just wanted you to know that i really love your videos and that they are the onyl things that have kept me sane the past couple of months. lots has been going on and every day i come home and watch your videos and they never fail to make me smile. i really wish you would post on your blog more.
    I thought your little picture story was actually very funny.

  • Kaya

    im not sure if you’ll actually see this or not but i was just wondered what drama school you went to? its stalkery its just my friend goes to a drama school in bath and i wondered if you went to the same one because that would be super uber coollike :P xx

  • Kaya

    i meant its not stalkery :P haha i cant type today :P xx

  • Lufize

    Hi Charlie !

    My name is Lucile and I come from France. I wanted to thank you for your hilarious videos ! It really helped me improving my english :D Who would have thought that your videos could be educative ( I’m not sure this is a good english sentence). By the way, you should try to practise french accent like you did with american one ( it definitely taught me the difference between the american and the british accent) !

    Bye or “Salut” :D

  • Harry

    that’s not a very nice thing to say about someone you don’t know at all.

  • Augsharp

    well he seems like one but i would say that he is in the middle.

  • Lizeee

    hahahaha that’s a real great story :D A little odd, yes, but great ^ ^

  • stroberi

    you seriously should consider stand up comedian haha you’re soooo freakishly funny (positive ofcourse :D ) i recently began to start watching you’re video’s and they’re hilarious :D
    keep up the good work! Love your british accent btw

    “fijne dag verder” and
    greets from holland :)

  • Kovajenn

    im not sure what to say…..

  • floraflouf

    change your photo on wikipedia

  • LuisaKon

    I don’t know if you know Charlie, but you are a great writer. I think you’re completely capable of writing a script for a long film if you want. I can notice that. When I watch videos from other you tubers, they often seem long, while yours are always captivating and time doesn’t really seem to pass by (what is a problem, because I end up spending hours on You Tube).

  • aperson

    Your writing is as if you are speaking directly in one’s ear. Very nice. I absolutely adore British accents and for some reason I read this in one. Now if only I could imitate one properly.

  • Sfriedl_nf

    My friend and I are locked in an epic battle of epicness and I need your help. The first person to get you to comment/reply to one of our comments wins. I am a fellow nerdfighter and I would really like to win! Thanks!!!

  • Jerseygirl1192

    I love this! It’s hilarious…and has given me a few mischievous ideas of my own!

  • Calvin Zhou

    charlie!!! charlie !!! what camera r u currently using ? u really inspired me to do this lol!!!!

  • Thea Solheim

    I just love watching your videos! sorry if my english is not understandable, I’m norwegian. that explains it, right?
    keep up the good work, charlie!
    bye or “hade” :D

    i know, he’s insane!
    in a positive way <3

  • Remkje

  • Emma Oliver

    Hahaha. Sounds interesting Charlie… :D

  • Sarah

    that is the coollikest story EVER!! XD

  • Maham Ahmad

    i bet you don’t have that much free time now…

  • Bleeplife3456

    that is socoollike

  • Kat

    I have actually done this to my mum and photos of her partner. I have also drawn various expression on sticky notes to replace his face with. Not because I retain any particular burning hatred of the man and am expressing a desire to erase his face from existence at all. More just to see how long it would take my mum to notice. Discovering I am not the only one to have done this is actually something of a relief to be honest.

    I think it stems from my childhood hobby of making paper sweaters for the pin up girl posters in my brother’s room. Hm.

  • Doglover992

    That’s hilarious. Well done xD

  • Kathryn

    as we all do <3

  • Steph! :)

    Hehe! Weird things like that happen to me sometimes, like I’ve got a picture of my brother dressed in an alien costume hidding a banana skin in my mums bed when he was little! STraNge! XD xxx I never say this but, follow meee!! @stephedwards4 xxxx

  • Regina Llambías

    awwwh, it’s okay! we all do that kind of things…well, not me really. lol but it’s cool have your face in a wardrobe, it’s FUNNY. and you are funny. so…do you have another for me? hahaha jk

  • Zoehuss99


  • Flora McNulty

    kinda wierd but funny

  • Linnéa

    Done digesting and ready to comment!
    I must agree; posting this odd, yet lovely, little tale on your blog was definitely the right choice!
    Must be pretty awesome to receive some help from your younger self, the framing I mean, good job little Charlie!
    Oh, and you too, present Charlie!

  • asdfgh

    ahahaha sounds like something i would do, going to extreme lengths to prank a family member in which one time i insisted on scaring my sister when leaving her bedroom, 30 mins past, an hour past she didnt come out therefore i smoothly left the site and never told anybody what had happened… ahh gawd im a loser

  • Luca 444

    ahahahahahahahahahahahah SOOOOOO FUNNNY SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING I WOULD DO!!!!

  • Alexah Hart

    Thanks for the explanation, strange yet funny :)

  • Joëlle

    hahahaha, you’re right, it is incredibly creepy, but so funny, I hadn’t laughed that much in a long while, haha.

  • Fantasticly.strange.

    I enjoyed this little anecdote. Many thanks. ;)

  • Lula

    hahahahahahahahahahahahah you´re so crazy Charlie !! thanks for telling us !!

  • Cookie Monster

    right… that’s interesting… :L

  • TheEddyf1

    That sounds like the sort of thing I would think of doing but never actualy end up doing

  • Sunjum

    Why don’t you update your bloggy blog anymore?!?!? UPDATE PLEASE!

  • teleportingfatguy

    Weird.. and hilarious:) Ever since I read this for the first time I’ve been looking for my little school photos so I can stick them all round the house XD

  • teleportingfatguy

    I do that too. One time while my mum was in the laundry I stood right outside the door, pressed up against it with a weeping angel expression. When she opened the door she jumped and screamed… it was the defining moment of my childhood *sniffs*

  • Kaho

    Hi, I am a Japanese and managed to understand your videos with my poor Englilsh ability hoping to understand all perfectly…:) They make me laugh and HAPPY as good as this face story anyway! Your humore is universal^^ Thanks a lot.

  • Heyoh

    It’s time for you to change your fact sheet :D

  • taz

    This.. is.. a bit weird. As you so clearly stated above. But it is a very funny story! You should add these random long-ish stories into videos because I know that I do enjoy watching your videos and it seems that you never quite post enough. Keep it up! Whatever it is you’re doing when you do these videos… :D

  • sassafras37

    hey i gots a question for you sir. this has nothing to do with this post i just went to the first one i saw but where did you get your doctor who t-shirt? i started watching the show cuz u said it was awesome and now it’s my favs show by far. it’s dabomb diggidy, super fly not gonna lie, the bees knees! ….anyways. i would rather enjoy it if you told me so i can get one and wear it and then ppl will be all ” hey. that’s cool.” and ill be all ” yeah. doctor who.” …….ok bye.

  • Lol123

    Your really really really HOOTTT… :)

  • Hannah8!!!!!

    to my dearist charlie,
    i feel as though you have neglected your blog by not posting anything in a very long time! i dont know what “a long time in england” is but in america 45 DAYS COUNTS!!!
    even posting a pi ture of you drinking tea would be satisfying:))
    please consider this comment and love you as always!

  • Meilo

    it is annoying whne they dont post anything for a long time but from charlie’s point of view, he just cant be bothered right now or doesnt have much to blog about yet. i wouldnt enjoy reading a blog baout how he eats breakfast or anything. plus hes a boy and, well boys are boys :)

  • Merveeeee

    The fact that you took the photo back to London with you just made me laugh. Your quite funny and i really do appreciate you telling us anecdotes about your life which, quite frankly seeks our attention and makes us read and want to read even more. Uhmm i really don’t know how I came-about to your Videos but im quite happy to say that I met you through your vids:) and can sincerly say that i fell in love with you! <3

  • Ragne

    Dårlig med oppdateringer på bloggen din, gutt! Ikke bra.
    Greit nok, du skulle bare oppdatere hvis du hadde noe å skrive om, men det skjer vel litt mer i England? Det er jo det fineste landet som finnes!

    Try to figure that one out!

  • Mr. Charlie Mcdonnell

    Dear fellow nerd named charlie,

  • redwasabi

    Considering how many more weird things there are out on the internet, that wasn’t so weird. And I think we all have a tendency to pull pranks… why didn’t you do anything for April Fool’s? Or did you do something and didn’t bother to make a video about it? lol random comment :P

  • Sparksy Dash

    Ragne, I’m only 11. I understand what ur sayin its norwegian. here is the translation:
    Poor with updates to your blog, boy! Not good.
    Fair enough, you should only update if you had something to write about, but it’s a bit more in England? It’s the nicest country ever!

  • Rochelle Dunne

    dat was a cool story but a reall random thing to do but awesome

  • Bunya333

    youre the best dude i hope i will become as goos as you

  • Mrs. Charlie Mcdonnell

    Dear fellow nerd Charlie Mcdonnell:
    YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Erica Bellamy

    You should cut out more pictures of your face and paste them in odd places around London.

  • Celia

    I don’t find this a particularly odd thing to do, somehow…maybe it’s because I’m very weird myself… :) please never stop making videos and blogs!:)

  • lellyboo77

    Chralie whats happened to blogging about all your videos? i loved reading about the back story to all your videos and i miss it now! :( im loving all your work though! keep it up!! :D

  • JodiSnow

    Nice story…kinda weird…but anyway,I’m a BIG fan and i love your red hair!!!So awesome!!!

  • Juliana Markan

    Brazilian girls are freaking out about you.. you’re soooo hot!

  • Roberta Barone

    You know, I didn’t think it was so weird, so I didn’t understand all the excitement about it…but then I read your story and realized I was wrong :P

    I suggested it to my cousin Teo, he will probably do the same thing as soon as he can find the perfect photo…

  • Roberta Barone

    sorry, double comment

Some sort of ledgandary person is going around my town with those pictures of you! Obviously trying to continue your work, right on:D

  • MissGiggleKnickers

    Heyy :)
    must say im hating that you have moved even further away from me now, but loving the story ! :)
    Btw, if your still doing the challenge charlies (which i love !) could you do one were you dress up like a women with make-up, heels, a dress, bra, hands and toes painted pink with shaved legs and you hair in fancy clips ? – i think it would be pretty funny to see you do it !

    So, there was this one time when I would watch your videos, etc and I thought I was the only one. None of my friends knew who you were and I thought I was part of a small group of people who thought you were hilarious. Turns out you’re quite famous. Go you, and go me paying attention to video counts once every three years.

    I don’t really understand the vid of you and your friends (one has blue hair!!!)
    And all the singing and stuff. Is that just a music video? I thought you all

    The only part of this story that makes any sort of sense at all is the part where your smile is always perfect in photos. (:

  • Barefoot Hobbit Girl

    I guess you have always been as odd as you seem on your video blogs, but you are AWESOME!!!

  • James Hahn

    @CharlieIsSoCoolLike:disqus From a psychological perspective, I don’t find this story to be all that weird. In fact, as an early teen doing this, given the dating situation of your mum, it is quite understandable. At some level, you saw Lee as encroaching on your territory which, included the affections of your mother. His face was beginning to appear in many places around the house. You needed to reclaim your territory by replacing Lee’s face with your own.

(blush). Keep doing what ur doing, can’t wait to watch more! Really interested! luv you, luv it!!!! :)  

  • Zoeblairholt

    charlie its been a month since a blog post :( 
    loved your video yesterday, it was good to re-introduce yourself to everyone and those vlogs are what youtube is lacking, at the moment some people are all about getting views rather than just about you and making something for that one person on the other side viewing it

  • LonelyBlackButterfly

    I’d love it if you would update here but I understand that you are probably busy either with youtube related things or other life things. Just wanted to ask nicely not to forget to update sometime okay? Thanks! I enjoy our mostly one-way conversations, just so you knwo :)

  • Ray

    Ahhhh charlie!! after reading the title of this blog i got curious and had to go back and re watch the crib video which i enjoyed thoroughly the second time around by the way. I laughed so hard I could have peed when you mentioned the “little spec” on your wardrobe and then zoomed in so we could all see your smiling face AHA!
    i love your videos, just thought you should know that

  • Pippar.

    mmm innocent smoothie!! ^_^

  • eLizburyDoughgirl

     I stumbled upon your channel a few days ago and have now looked at sufficient videos to be able to read this post in your voice in my head. You know like when you get letters etc. I think that mind boggling! What random voice do you read comments in? Anyway, shout out from a Trinidadian now temporarily residing in London! :)

  • Grace Muir

     hey charlie! just saying that this sounds like something that i would do. also i think your lovely. and yeah. you should come to america (more specifically charleston, south carolina). it would be awesome to see you. i would do the “i found charlie thing” and get a pin badge if you still have any. but yeah. come to the states. love you! also very excited for still got legs!

  • Willie Piyamas

    No estoy segura que sea raro, pero si un poco fuera de lo comun, me agradan tus videos eres muy talentoso, suerte. (:

    Which means: I’m not sure if it’s a weird history, but it’s a little out of the common, I like your videos you are really talented, good luck.

  • Hanna

    God, Charlie, I really have to share this with you… (You ask me why? Ah, I don’t know… maybe the same reason you share your life with us..? What is the simplest explanation? (this is an Occam’s Razor situation, right?) We live in a crazy world. Yeah, let’s go with that.)

    Actually, I just wanna say THANK YOU. I’ve been crying so much today and now I’m laughing. Wanna know why? (well, of course you don’t, but.. let’s pretend you do!) I’m in the most messed up state imaginable, working simultaneously on two essays, a workplan for my university workshop and my thesis, and I’m sad, I’m scared, and I’m freaking out, and as always, I’m using your videos as procrasination. And what happens? You suddenly upload a new video (yay!), and it’s about.. procrastination! And what am I doing? I’m watching you talking about procrastination as procrastination. Between two tea breaks. Because I’m constantly having tea breaks.. of course. And I’m starting to feel that this is bloody weird.
    And as I’m sitting there, absolutely devastated, crying my eyes out.. I realize that I’m laughing. Especially at the “back to work” part. And of course, I know that I have to obey. (Isn’t it nice that you have such a huge power over us? It must be pretty cool.)

    So, anyway, thank you. I laughed until I cried again. It’s nice to know that when everything is hopeless as hell, we’ve still got you. I’m proud to carry your badge on my bag. And please create more videos for us. I know you’re procrastinating, but don’t forget that we’re doing that as well, and how can we do it without you? Please don’t be selfish, Mr McDonnell. I hope someday there is gonna be a video of people watching your videos and then you’ll see how much we all need you. I mean, we really need you. Not because of your looks, or your accent, or any part of you that gets those neverending “hot” comments on youtube, or whatever. We need you because of who you are, no matter how cheesy that sounds. I think it’s cool that your actual job is helping people. Thank you for being our Doctor. There are so many of us watching you from the camera you’re talking into and we are hoping that it keeps on rolling forever.

    And of course, I’m sure you aren’t reading that. Still. Writing to you is as good for procrastination as anything else.

    take care, Charlie.

  • Helena

    Yes, it’s a weird story, but I’ve wondered about it for a long time (well, it feels like that), so I’m happy to know it. And moreover, I love weird stories without any special meaning. I just have to laugh, smile – or whatever – when I read or hear them. So thank you very much! And as all the others are saying… Keep making vieos, keep being Charlie, Charlie!

  • marmar122097

    yes!!!!!!! DO IT DO IT DO IT!!

  • Personfromharrow

    That was kinda weird… :0 

  • Kristy Edgerton

    even though you have like 552 comments. I hope you read this. I recently found you on Youtube. shocker I know. But the point of that is I’ve spent all my morning watching your videos and have fallen in love with you. You also have nice teeth and remind me of my little brother who is a year younger than you and I. :] I will forever be following you now. xoxoxo Kristy Edgerton. 

  • Sarah<3

    YOU REALLY SHOULD BLOG MORE! Or write a book. Your words are witty, hilarious, and seem almost effortless. I wish I had your writing ability!

  • Ayesha


  • hitlersbirthday

    Wow I love your style in writing, so casual. 
    I love orange jelly and purple. I hope you find oddness interesting and not interesting things odd.

  • Andi



    I wonder if charlie reads our comments? Just a random thought, i dont remember if you ever mentioned in a video whether you have or not…. awkward…. okay, well if you are reading this, you are probably thinking i am a very insane random person, BUT now you can know THAT because i loved this story and laughed my butt off until i cried and watched the video a million times just to laugh at the random tiny face on your dresser – (breath break) – you have inspired this random person to run around her house and tape tiny pictures of herself everywhere just immaturities (spelling?) sake. i find it oddly amusing when i find them, and they make my day so thank you charlie for this brilliant idea.

    unfortunately my mum finds it odd and slightly irritating……… not kidding, they’re everywhere.

  • Joe Rabone

    this story is would be a good idea for a video, going around london sticking faces of random people to aready existing faces :L 

  • Jondevlog

    Oh my god, Charlie posted a new blog! Wait, no, it’s the same one. Still… :P

  • Smiles

    I really hope Alex isn’t mistaken!
    but it’s not inconceivable that Charlie intends to write it -after- the album’s actually released, by which time he’d have forgotten about it…eek I hope not!

  • Riaaaaa

    Hey, HEY, LISTEN. Keep this on the dl (that’s DOWN LOW. DOWN. LOW.), cos I don’t want anyone getting hurt or anything, but ngl – Chameleon circuit? YOU’RE my favourite. SHHHHH!

  • nad

    do you actually know that you’ve been kind of “featured” in my english school book? i just think it’s slightly weird..yeah that’s all, bye!

  • cecelia

    um, can you make your album into a record? just a suggestion… but that would be awesome, and i would buy it even though i have the cd. Why a record? because records are cool, just like bow ties, which BTW would be cool if you wore one in a vid sometime… (hint hint :D)

  • X Lauren Alexandra

    Oh my god :O I actually just watched your videos they made me lol :) So yeah :)

  • lauren :)

    Ohh Emm Geeeee.! I Just Watched Your Videos On Youtbe :L Because Im Too Cool -.- And You Rctually Made Me LoL :D

  • Sarah

    haha! all your videos make me laugh :) mind you, recently you haven’t been doing as many, and a couple videos a go you made the one ‘stop procrastinating’.. yeah somehow I don’t think you’ve managed to stop yet :L 
    btw, just a little side- thingamabob, I don’t know if you read this, but my friend Ed is a big fan of yours, and he’s a youtuber (PyjamaTed) so if you have a chance, it’d be nice if you could look him up :) thanks :D

  • Nurilen Yakobistan

    that bit “she had a few pictures of the both of them in her bedroom, and in other areas around the house” sounded really… weird

  • Starshine Shelby

    Granted, this is rather weird, but then again, have we ever expected anything other than that from you?

  • Shawty2011

    This is funny! :D

  • nikola wellington

    charlie, you are too awesome.

  • Whyareyoureading

    This story is weird but I am way weirder.

  • Kyra Keyboard

    I can so imagine charlie saying this while i read it

  • Marit

    I’m actually thinking about doing this…
    My mum would freak, but it would be soooo worth it :D

    I love all of your videos, watched them all in 3 days… 
    Make more videos, you make me laugh so hard every time !!!! 

  • Anonymous

    Speaking of wardrobes, have you ever tried to get to Narnia through a wardrobe? Closets just arent the same :/

  • Evie615

    ILY charlie you rule.

  • buns72205

    Cute story, love it cuz its you! :)

  • FulhamMad

    This is a strange story…

  • theheartkaleidoscope

    To be fair, I don’t think your story was THAT strange, I think it would have been a lot stranger if you had cut your Mum’s boyfriend’s face out of every picture in the house, then you would most definitely come across like some sort of crazed serial killer. Whilst reading about how you stuck your face on every photo of them in the house, I have to say, I found it really quite hilarious :’)

  • Broken Piece


    when i was in middle school (primero medio) (im from chile) i replace the face of the priest of the school with my face and also   

  • Jessica Telford

    hi charlie, very strange story but anyway

  • Jessica Telford

    u r so awesome I love ur videos!!! :)

  • Stewie22

    to be honest i dont think its strange at all, but i guess thats because im strange too..
    yikes i must not be very observant because i didnt even notice you had a small picture of yourself on your cupboard.. but then again, i also didnt notice my friend got her braces off, awkiesss woww i talk way too much haha

  • Ellis Sullivan

    we’ve all done it before charlie , well , I havnt and people probably havnt but you get the basic idea, but it is abit weird

  • Anonymous

    Haha, I think the weirdness of what you did made the act sot of…charmingly funny…if that makes sense. :) Besides, I’m sure even insane, serial killers make it a point to inject some humor into their everyday lives. I mean, when their not out murdering people.

  • Vicky Murray

    My family has a little tradition just like that. we have a fake grey handlebar mustache that my sister got for her birthday. I really don’t know why she wanted fake mustaches. But anyways we pass this mustache around on all of the pictures we have hanging up in my house. Its like a little game where the person who has the mustache on there picture puts it on someone else’s and they wait to see how long until its discovered.

  • Ashwee DOodles

    cool website :)

  • hplover!!!!

    if i had a penny for every time someone replaced my face!!!!

  • Isabel Codá

  • Daisygrawee

    It’s a cool adventure for a photo tho xD

  • Animegirlkristen

    Your so cute Charlie…

  • Rabbie

  • Sue

    This made me giggle more than it probably should have 


    aww was litteraly laughing my head off!!

  • Tillious

    i really like your videos but i should probably stop watching them as i have a huge spanish test tomorrow which i need to revise for!…. oops

  • chicken alfredo

    Hahaha that sounds like something I would do, :D

  • Hi

    The teacher next to my classroom came in and did that with pictures of himself years ago. It’s very… odd.

  • Drt2903

    And now we know. Horray.
    I love you Charlie.

  • Jasminalbakar

    haha xD I think I just got some aps, I cant stop laugh

  • Joy Nakahara

    you should try it again with everyone from chameleon circuit’s face and pace them around your house…in random areas like a milk carton or that one certain area right below the model board above the stairs, just so it would be like, ‘wow. good morning beautiful! *then look down and see a picture of yourself or someone else and giggle.* 

    ….i would so do that. and it would be AWESOME~

  • Cohocrules

    I technically didn’t ask for it, but it was entertaining enough. isn’t it cool to look back at what we do when we are younger. we can’t change the past things that we think that are weird, but we can sure make fun of them to ourselves.

  • Gisella Jeanfany

    hahahahaa… little insane.. but that’s cute.. hahhaa

  • justinbiebersogay

    Hey Charlie! Why you didn’t post anything here during all those 2 years!??? Don be boring!!

  • Timmynarbeth

    “In a video I posted about about”? isn’t there something a tiny bit wrong there?

  • I’m Just an Alpaca.

    Hello, dear Charlie ! ^.__.^

    That was a weird story x) But, you know, we all have a little secret like this one, maybe far, far away in our memory… Well, I think you do pretty well at telling stories and you’re really funny haha :) SO DON’T STOP :D

    Good luck with everything and I’m pretty happy that you’re better now… I think so… I wish so, though… Thank you very much for all, Charlie. Every video you made makes me happy, when I see you. I’m proud of what you are now, you little vanilla cupcake, covered with pink icing, with sparkles and candies, and a red cherry on the top, and stuff x).
    Don’t give up !

    With love,
    Sasha xx

    P.S. I already sent a message to you, and I don’t want to stalk you but… I wish I knew you before you became so famous and busy, so you could read my messages and MAYBE reply… But I understand and I keep believe in your talent and I’m following your public actions, so, yeah… Stay yourself, little pogo, ’cause this is how we discovered and liked you the first time, and from now on ;)

  • Lilerton

    WOW…Cool story bro….

  • AprilLikeTheMonth

    I want to try that! :D

  • sortofweirdo

    My family would do that for so many things. Ducks, toy spiders, the Joker, even my dad’s college roommate.

  • Adriana

    As soon as I saw the photo with its caption I started singing: This is my face, on my head, on my warrrdrobe.
