Vancouver-based actor Matthew Clarke was a little surprised when his new YouTube series, 'Convos With My Two Year Old' became a viral sensation.
The idea for the series came to him a while back while he was chatting with his daughter Coco.
"I was talking to my daughter months ago, and for a moment I just sort of stepped outside the situation and I realized that this was a crazy conversation," Clarke told Fast Company.
"If she had been three feet taller, it would have been completely absurd. But because she's 2, it was the most normal thing in the world. I thought, 'There's comedic potential in that. I should write these down.'"
Since he released the first episode on May 21st, it's racked up more than four and a half million views, and episode two is doing great so far.
Actor David Milchard - an adult man - plays plays Clarke's daughter in the series, although the real Coco makes a cameo in both videos (that's episode two at the top of the post. The premiere episode is below).
As for future plans for the series, Clarke says he's not sure how many episodes he and his collaborators, Milchard, his wife Leila Harrison, his daughter, and director Darshan Rickhi have in them, but he's definitely planning more.
"I'm not sure exactly how many we'll do at this point, but there will be a number of them, for sure," Clarke says. "I think there's a lot of potential and material, but we're really just taking it as it comes. The whole thing was really just a fun experiment that's gone totally bonkers. So I think it's important to keep that spirit about it."
