About Chris Klemens

NYC-based Chris Klemens likes to take to the streets of his city (and others) to interview strangers, plying them with simple questions like, “What do you think of Donald Trump?” and “Do you know who Zayn Malik is?”—reacting to their answers with his trademark sarcasm, and often laughing along with them. With 120K “Klementines” subscribing to his YouTube channel, he is racking up the views with over exaggerated titles like, “Exclusive Ariana Grande Interview!!” The recent NYU grad and photographer brings along other social media stars like Alyx Weiss and Christian Leave to help with the interviews, leaving a trail of ridiculous, unscripted moments in his wake.
