Don't hide yo kids, don't hide yo wife, because they makin' stars of everyone up in here.
The very informative (infographitive?) folks over at Visual.ly have created a massive chart of what happened to everyone's favorite YouTube stars, a few of which we've higlighted here.

Well, it turns out that he's going to law school and doing OK for himself. So there you have it, being mocked on YouTube by millions guarantees success! Ok, one or two people suffered as a result of looking like complete fools, but by and large it turned out to be a good career move. Except for Keyboard Cat. You're really going to be depressed about what you learn about Keyboard Cat:
