Albert Aretz, better known as AlbertsStuff or Flamingo on social media, is a YouTube gamer best known for his Roblox gameplays. Albert started his now-discontinued YouTube channel “AlbertsStuff” in 2012, and after several years of successfully building a loyal audience of hundreds of thousands of fans, he decided to shut it down and move to a different channel. The reason behind the switch was primarily because he could not monetize his content with inappropriate language. His current channel, Flamingo, has millions of followers.
Albert Aretz, better known as AlbertsStuff or Flamingo on social media, was born on June 11, 1997 in New Jersey, United States. Albert has three sisters and a brother. Growing up, Albert liked to skateboard and exercise.
As of December 2020, AlbertsStuff has more than 640,000 followers on Twitter, 1.38 million subscribers on YouTube, and 828,000 followers on Instagram. Albert’s current YouTube channel, titled Flamingo, has more than 7.59 million subscribers.
Albert started his now-discontinued YouTube channel “AlbertsStuff” in 2012. He began posting Roblox gameplay videos to his YouTube channel. Albert became known for his screaming, raging, acting out and general childish behavior while playing video games on his account, and many of his videos including cursing and inappropriate language.
He kept posting Roblox videos to his account until around 2017. Albert eventually decided to move off his AlbertsStuff channel and start a new channel (“Flamengo”) for several reasons. One of the reasons was monetization. Albert couldn’t monetize his videos because of his cursing and inappropriate language in his videos.
In addition, videos surfaced of Albert using homophobic slurs and making racist comments in older clips. As a result, Albert went back and set all his videos to private when he moved accounts.
Albert’s new channel, Flamengo, has the same Roblox content but excludes cursing and inappropriate language so viewers of all ages can watch his content. In addition, he can now monetize his content. His new channel includes other types of gameplay as well as Roblox, but Roblox remains his most popular content.
During his gameplay, Albert came up with several memes and moments that he has since become known for creating. Some of these moments, characters and memes include Earthworm Sally, Still Chill, *spit noises*, Sammy the Strawberry, and more.
Since joining YouTube, Albert has become one of the most popular Roblox gameplay streamers. He has more than 4.7 billion lifetime views on his account Flamengo.
Albert dated fellow YouTube star Lana (known for her channel “LanasStuff”) for several years up until 2018. He then started dating fellow YouTube and Twitch star Kirsten, known as FoxKirsten. The pair met several years ago in 2013 and now have two dogs together.
