Lilly Singh

Lilly Singh is an Indian-Canadian comedian who plays multiple characters: herself, her overbearing mom, her showboating dad, and her self-obsessed friends.

Her 6 million fans love her because she shows the weirdness of everyday family life (especially Indian families).

Around the same time as the campaign, Lilly won a streamy award. In her acceptance speech, she thanked YouTube for "not being afraid to put a brown girl on a billboard."
