  • In addition to elevators, he also films building construction projects, vlogs about ongoing issues, transit videos, and bike trails
  • He also filmed elevators with georgef511, cober6711, jtelev, and CubsRule2040.
  • He is one of several filmers in the community who gets the least views, not just on elevators but any genre.
  • He titles his elevator videos as "<building name> <city> elevator", and this is likely to be a reason for why he gets so few views.
