After enrolling into college, Spencer Elmer was not comfortable there and felt that he was not learning anything significant. He tried to convince his parents to allow him to take a year off so that he could focus on his burgeoning YouTube career, and they eventually relented.
Spencer Elmer created his YouTube channel with the username menezbro on September 27, 2013 and uploaded his first video, 7.5K Packs - FIFA 15 Pack Opening!!, featuring his brother Elliot, on February 17, 2015. He continued to make video game related content and unboxing videos, before starting to experiment with lifestyle vlogs, reaction videos, challenge videos and the like. However, he later deleted most of his earlier videos as his channel began to focus on music. He also created a second channel called Elmo Extra on January 20, 2014 and began making vlog type content. However, he stopped uploading more videos on the channel after posting his 37th vlog on January 9, 2017.
In 2016, his daily routine involved attending school every day from his mother’s house and making videos after returning from school. This changed drastically after he became a part of The Social Climbers web group in 2017 along with fellow YouTubers like Carmie Sellitto (touchdalight), Millie T., Jordan Houston, Ben Morris, Kate Elisabeth, LookingForLewys, and Jacob White. He also moved to London in early 2018 and rented a residence with Carmie and Millie. The members of the group participated in challenges together and appeared in each other’s vlogs, thereby boosting their fan base. He was also popular on the live streaming platform YouNow with the username Spenxerr.
Spencer, who grew up in a musically gifted family, started dabbling in rap and posting freestyles online at 17. In 2019, he collaborated with Ben Hughes on the song Over It – Refix.
