He currently lives with his parents. YouTube Lasse originally submitted Hyperactive to YouTube after seeing a copy uploaded by another user with poor sound quality. Over the next six months Lasse uploaded 16 more videos, many created during his animation course. As of May 12th 2007 he has the 31st most subscribed channel, and four videos have been featured on the YouTube front page, Hyperactive, Hva faen, Speil?, Amateur, and Sogno ad Occhi Aperti. While Hyperactive has been the most popular, Amateur was featured in an article in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal. Lasse Gjertsen's video Hyperactive was nominated in the category Most Creative video in YouTube's 2006 Video Awards. The video achieved third place. Hyperactive was copied by Cartoon Network in an advert for the show "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends".
Lasse initially considered legal action but after talking to a lawyer decided it would be too arduous. It was also spoofed in an advertisement for the 3rd season of the FX tv show "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." Whether this was done with or without Gjertsen's permission is unclear. Beyond YouTube The YouTube success has resulted in offers from international companies like Chevrolet and MTV. In addition to his video work, Lasse has a self-produced album of electronica music. During a 5 month break from new content, Lasse worked on a two part music video collaboration, named Sogno ad Occhi Aperti, with the Italian Cellist Giovanni Sollima.
