Why Milo Ventimiglia Is Dressed as a Crazed Bunny on YouTube
The Heroes actor and a pal post tribute videos for his "DiVide Social Club"
Who wouldn’t want to watch a “Hero” tie a bowtie or drool over nachos poolside? Milo Ventimiglia makes it all possible with his online identity. Known as Russ181, the Heroes star has built a sizeable following on his YouTube page that he manages with his DiVide Pictures production partner Russ Cundiff.
Ventimiglia and Cundiff have 29 videos posted on the site, which range from lightsaber fight scenes between the two pals to clips of Ventimiglia brushing his teeth, shining his shoes and even watering the yard (before the Golden Globes, according to the title!). Many of them are tribute videos in response to short clips posted by fans of the actor, who call themselves DiVide Social Club, a rep for Ventimiglia tells PEOPLE. (The latest video to gain attention features a seemingly crazed Milo dressed as a bunny, an homage to this clip.)
No word on whether Ventimiglia’s girlfriend and costar Hayden Panettiere will make a guest appearance on one of the videos anytime soon.
