If you’ve ever seen a Vitaly Zdorovetskiy prank video, you probably know that he’s not afraid to try anything.

From licking Nutella off girls’ asses to chasing people with a chainsaw and tricking girls into giving him their knickers, Vitaly doesn’t give a fuck. So it should come as no surprise that he’s dabbled in the porn industry.

What may come as a surprise, though, is what happened during the porno, and how he ended up getting into it in the first place. But it also explains exactly why he became a prankster.

After eFukt discovered his 2011 video with BangBus, it made its rounds on the internet, and let’s just say Vitaly learned that porn wasn’t for him the hard (or not so hard) way.

Being a case of stage fright, camera shyness, a deer caught in the headlights, or whatever you want to call it, it caused him to be unable to sexually perform. But his embarrassing moment also caused him to jump into YouTube stardom – just not for the reason you’d think.

In a new video posted to Vitaly’s YouTube channel VitalyzdTv, the 24-year-old ‘natural born prankster’ reveals why he got into porn and that his success as an online star didn’t come overnight – and it wasn’t easy.

Vitaly, who always wanted to be an actor, moved to America with his mum when he was seven-years-old, but it didn’t prove as glamorous as he expected. Unable to speak English, he couldn’t make any friends.

He said:

I would go home and cry every single day because I couldn’t talk to anybody.

My dad would yell at me, call me a fucking idiot, piece of shit, make fun of me, told me I’m gonna be the biggest failure in life.

He added that his step dad would beat him and his mother, and when his brother died, things got worse:

He was crazy, but after this, he became a psycho. He would take all his frustrations out on me and my mom. If I drank a cup of tea and I didn’t put a cup in the dishwasher, he would beat me. It was bad.

And I had to see my mom get beat up. I did what I could, I stood up for her, but he was just unstoppable.

I was afraid for my life. I was really thinking, either it’s gonna he’s gonna kill me or my mom.

Vitaly explains that after getting a job as a garbage man, a side-of-the-road sign spinner dressed as Uncle Sam, and finally a bus boy-turned-waiter, he still wasn’t making enough money to move him and his mum out of the house, away from his step dad.

That’s when he got a call to do porn.

He said: “At this point I was a waiter, and I was desperate for money, I had to move out. So I had to do it.”

Shortly after Zdorovetskiy turned 18, he appeared alongside porn star Diamond Kitty, and it didn’t take him long to figure out he preferred the mainstream film industry over the adult one.

While filming in the back of the BangBus, Vitaly had serious trouble getting it up, causing Diamond to give up and move onto the other guy in the van. Ouch.

But despite the embarrassing performance, he doesn’t regret the experience and says he’s glad he couldn’t get it up, otherwise he’d still be in porn.

But it turns out it wasn’t all bad – Vitaly took the blue film money and moved him and his mum to Los Angeles. Doesn’t sound like a bad paycheque.

That’s when he got into YouTube. But after getting only 63 subscribers in three months, he gave up. It was only after he decided to try it again, on his 30th video, that he went viral.

Now, his main channel videos have garnered more than one billion views.

He said:

People think I’m an overnight success. It was a lot of hard work, and look where I started: my transition into America, my crazy step dad, working those horrible jobs, my brother dying, embarrassing myself in that porn video, and having to work my ass off to make YouTube work.

That was 18 years of trying and failing.

There are really two morals to this story. While it’s easy to assume that all YouTube stars fell into it because of luck, it’s not always the case. People – like Vitaly – do actually work hard for where they are now.

And the second? Even a really shit porn video will pay you enough money to move you and someone else to Los Angeles.
