Troom Troom joined YouTube on September 12th, 2015. The channel debuted on October 2015 as a seemingly normal place to find videos on how to do crafts.
On April 19, 2015, they created a secondary channel called Troom Troom SELECT, a French-speaking channel named Troom Troom FR, a German one called Troom Troom De, a Japanese channel Troom Troom JP, and a Portuguese channel named Troom Troom PT. Every channel posts a variation of the first Troom Troom video on the day of their creation.
Troom Troom kept this fun craft model for the next year or so, until sometime in early 2017, when more actresses began being featured on the channel and it morphed into a bizarre combination of prank videos, strange D.I.Y’s, crafts, and life hacks.
On February 5, 2016, they created a Spanish channel named Troom Troom Es.

Since Troom Troom’s recent rise in popularity, they have often been made fun of and have gained a lot of criticism from viewers and fellow YouTubers for a variety of reasons. Troom Troom is generally more notibly criticized by their flaws in grammar and expression which is often called «unsettling» or «unnatural sounding», their exaggerated photoshopped thumbnails, as well as their DIYs/pranks which are often seen as «pointless» and far from «pranks» at all. A noticable unnatural factor is regarding the narrator’s phrasing, and how she is usually quick to point out facts the audience surely already knows by sight, such as when the Blue Eyed Girl is shown shivering, she would state, «The Blue Eyed Girl is cold!».
A rise of videos have been made commonly addressed as «Troom Troom rants», «Following a Troom Troom video» or «reacting to Troom Troom» often in a joking manner due to how obsurd they are. Notably, Cristine from Simply Nailogical has made various Troom Troom related content on her channel, as well as YouTuber Danny Gonzalez. Jarvis Johnson also made various videos on Troom Troom and its content.
DIY YouTuber, Brianna Reneé, expressed how she felt about Troom Troom, saying she feels like they do not put time into their work and somehow upload more than once a day and still get lots of views, unlike hardworking DIY YouTubers with great content who aren’t getting as much views like they used too.
