Prior to launching Blippi in 2014, he'd spent his early career in brand development, digital content creation, and online marketing. He also worked a number of odd jobs from dishwasher to cameraman.
Stevin John started making gross out videos in 2013 under the persona of Steezy Grossman, a boy born as poop. Under his Steezy Grossman alias, John developed videos such as "Turdboy" and "Underwear Man". In a 2013 video John performed the Harlem shake on a toilet and defecated on a naked friend. When the video was unearthed by Buzzfeed in 2019, John said, "at the time, I thought this sort of thing was funny, but really it was stupid and tasteless, and I regret having ever done it." John used DMCA takedown notices to remove the video from social media and internet search engines.
The idea for Blippi came to Stevin John after moving back to Ellensburg, and witnessing his then two-year-old nephew viewing low-quality videos on YouTube. Blippi has been described as, "an adult human man who dresses up in bright clothes and dances around America’s deserted soft play centres for the benefit of YouTube". The first Blippi video was published on January 27, 2014, with John starring as Blippi and doing all of the filming, editing and graphics himself on the initial videos. Taking inspiration from children's educators and entertainers before him, such as Mr. Rogers, John wished to portray Blippi as educational, but also as thinking and acting as a child would.
In 2019, John was criticized for a "bait and switch" in which a Blippi tour was advertised, with parents paying high sums for tickets, but the actual performance was by a Blippi impersonator. The producer and promoter of the Blippi Live show stated that the announcements and advertisements clearly indicated that John would not be on the tour; a refund was offered to ticket holders.
Blippi has occasionally posted photos of his girlfriend Alyssa on his personal Instagram account, stevinwjohn.
Currently, Blippi is 32 years, 7 months and 28 days old. Blippi will celebrate 33rd birthday on a Thursday 27th of May 2021. Below we countdown to Blippi upcoming birthday.
