Anthony Padilla is known as one of the members of famous online comedy duo Smosh. The Smosh group was founded by Padilla and his good friend Ian Andrew and the current popularity of the online show is the result of their amusing talent and ingenuity. From the large fan base that both members have accumulated, Padilla has been able to secure a comfortable net worth of $3 million.
It seems quite unlikely that anyone would be able to attain such a high net worth from videos alone. Here are some of the other endeavors and details of how Padilla amassed his current fortune.
First and foremost, despite being a member of a comedy duo on YouTube, Anthony and his friend’s popularity has made their channel into one of the most highly subscribed channels on YouTube. As a result of the subscriptions, Padilla has been able to generate a comfortable income that has lent itself to his current net worth.
Another factor that has influenced his net worth is his movie, which was released in 2015. The movie, creatively titled: “Smosh: The Movie”, most likely resulted in a nice windfall in terms of income. Most fans were glad to hear of the movie and producers probably paid Padilla a pretty penny for his work and comedic efforts. Currently IMDB gives this movie a rating of 4.2 out of 10 stars.
Finally, Padilla’s net worth is also influenced by his music albums that he released with Hexcox Music. The most recent music released by Padilla were “The Sweet Sound of Smooth” and “Smoshtastic.” While Padilla likely received an upfront payment for the recordings, it is also likely that he received royalties too. Finally, in 2015 Padilla also released Smoosh Games Alliance, which enables brands to advertise through Padilla and his teammate. Through the Smash Alliance, Padilla has been able to supplement his net worth well enough to reach the current rate that it is at today.
