Davey Wavey thanks 'masturbating neighbor' who helped him go viral

Almost 10 years ago, YouTube user wickydkewl uploaded a video in which he discussed his masturbating neighbor, and a social-media star was born.

(No, not the neighbor. The star in question is the personality now known as Davey Wavey.)

Davey recalled his breakthrough moment with What's Trending co-founder Shira Lazar.

"It turns out that 'masturbating neighbor' is something that people really do search for on YouTube," he told Lazar while attending VidCon 2016 in Anaheim, Calif. "So, the video went viral... Him jerking off launched my entire career."

Uploaded in 2007, that original video has more than 3 million views on YouTube.

With more than 1 million subscribers these days, Davey's YouTube page describes the host as a "gay guru and storyteller who entertains audiences with humor, sexuality and lots of gayness."

It's a forum that's helped him collect more than 315 million YouTube views. But he may never have found that level of fame without a little inspiration from his self-pleasuring neighbor in Toronto.

"I would love to thank him," he said. "We should do some, like, project to find him."

What's Trending collaborated with Davey Wavey three years ago to get his take on some of YouTube's best coming-out videos.

As the YouTube star noted, that compilation does not include the music video for Diana Ross' hit 1980 song "I'm Coming Out," which Davey asserts is "obviously No. 1."
