The Swedish duo said: “The channel actually came into existence by accident. A friend of Elli’s was booked to do the makeup for an artist shoot, in my studio in February 2013.

“The friend couldn’t make it so she sent Elli instead. That’s how me met, totally by chance. Later that year in the beginning of October Elli asked if I wanted to take step by step still shots of her doing a zombie makeup. I said no, let’s film it instead.”
