Ian Andrew Hecox (born November 30, 1987) is an American YouTuber and actor who is one of the co-founders of the YouTube channel Smosh. He took over as the head of Smosh on June 14, 2017, after the other co-founder and creator of the original Smosh Productions, Anthony Padilla, left Smosh to be an independent content creator.
An IMDB user shares his opinion, "I'll put this right out there, I'm no fan of Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla's SMOSH. I find their humor to be juvenile and very "youtube" oriented if such a concept exists. I get it that they're hip with the kids but that's probably only because they haven't built up much life experience yet and still think farts are funny. You know, they were funny when you were 7 and your humor hasn't evolved since then. "Smosh: The Movie" was bad but I can still say that there was some effort put into it. I would assume it was their version of a 90-minute youtube video. But it's a masterpiece compared to this. This movie isn't just bad. It's lazy and if anything that's a lot worse than just being bad. There's no effort put into this to craft a joke or make a good scene. It's just stuff happening for no reason. Some guy dies and starts acting like an asshole and trolling the only guy that can see him to force him to help the dead guy get to heaven. Yeah, nowhere in the history of cinema has that plot ever been used. From what I've seen even diehard fans of Smosh hate this movie. And that's saying something. This is by far one of the worst things I've ever seen and if this is what Youtube Red is all about then it's a failed experiment."
