His curious way to deliver content in his videos engaged an entire generation, and to be able to make people so invested in his humoristic content related to animes laugh with unexpected words is a huge influencer skill.
One of the first anime-related content creators in Brazil
Pedro Henrique ”Orochi”, was born in Maringá, Paraná. Pedro got his nickname inspired by Orochimaru, one of the biggest villains in the anime culture and one of the main antagonists in the anime series ‘Naruto’. His passion for the show was his headstart on the internet.
The plot goes around Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who aspires to become the Hokage, the prestigious position of leadership in his village. The show kept it success even after 20 years of its release, it’s a show with a large dominance aamong the ”Otaku” culture.
He started his journey on YouTube, in 2013 to share his insights based on his interest in the anime culture, especially focused on the series Naruto. His first video on the platform was called ”UFC Naruto”, which the content creator showcase the game ”Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst”, with over 410K views.
The video was short but had a huge impact, with an edited voice-over of a UFC narrator and perfectly timed zoom-ins the simple playthrough video made it into a funny and unique meme.
Memes and anime, the unexpected mix
Orochi had this innate skill to entertain whatever he puts effort into, and his reputation grew quickly due to his genius approach to delivering comical content. The content creator could even be one of the first influencers to bring the ”Shitposting” culture to the mainstream.

This type of content can start from simple low-quality images to even intentional satirical type of videos in general. Orochi was pioneering on this type of content, so as a fresh content creator he amassed an huge amount of fans.
The video which exemplifies this type of content, is ” O DIA QUE O ITACHI FRITOU OVO ” (The day Itachi fried an egg), which was initially a promotional video with the antagonist from Naruto. But Orochi had better plans for it. The edited video had a robotic voice-over to narrate the entire video in a poor and satirical way, and the video got over 6.3M views on YouTube.
Memes and other types of audio was included in the video, enriching its meme value. Orochi’s fans couldn’t have enough of his genius skills for this type of content, which was showcased in the huge response in the comments.
The influencer didn’t limit himself only to the Naruto series, the influencer had his content dedicated to the Otaku’s culture as well. One of his followers sent him a video of an anime convention (an event focused on anime culture), and Orochi had a brilliant idea for humoristic content.
He edited an Alien-focused show into the anime convention, to parallel the comparison between UFOs and Anime lovers, bringing a good amount of laughs out of his subscribers.

Bold Creators Club can help you reach your goals
To have a successful Instagram account, you need to put in the time and effort. You can’t just set up your account and expect people to start clicking on your links. You need an engaged audience that is interested in your brand. This is why running Instagram ads is still a good idea – it will help you build up a following and figure out what engages your target customers best.
Dealing with social media influencers is not always easy. Actually, most of the time, companies and influencers can’t communicate clearly, as there is a lack of a cultural, linguistic, and social bridge that connects both.
When it comes to Latin influencers, this communication barrier is even bigger. Not only because a lot of people in countries like Brazil or Colombia don’t English, but also because these countries are highly multicultural, with cities with completely different styles, slang, social and cultural movements within the country.
In the case of Brazil, this aspect is so strong that there are even completely different cultures within the same city, in big metropolises like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro.
It is really hard to keep up with the constant changes in the pop culture and in the internet world, so contacting an agency whose job is to always be updated about what the influencers are doing, how is the stability in the country, and more important information for your company, is the best strategy.
