Oobah Butler 

Award-winning filmmaker, writer and provocateur, famous for his different lifehacks on the web, like turning the Shed in his backyard into the highest ranked restaurant on TripAdvisor or faking his way into Paris Fashion Week.


Over the past two years, his work has gone from quietly admired on VICE Magazine and The Guardian to being renowned globally.

His work uses comedy and absurdity to comment on the modern era.

Whether it’s swindling his way as a fake jeans designer, Georgio Peviani, to the top of Paris Fashion Week or letting his Instagram followers vote on every decision he made for a day, his ambition is to explore different worlds in an interesting, contemporary way.

After releasing his stunning film and article about The Shed at TripAdvisor Oobah dominated headlines globally in the climate of ‘fake news’, being interviewed on television stations all over the world. The Singaporean parliament used his work as an example to inform new laws on fake news

In Summer 2018, he received three prestigious awards for his work: “Content Creator of the Year” at the Online Media Awards; “Video Project of the Year” at the British Media Awards and “Best Content Idea” at the British Society of Magazine Editors Talent 2018 Awards.
