About

Spidey Turan, also known as ShearingShedVlogs or Turan Spidey, is an Australian TikToker and IRL streamer on YouTube most known as a TikTok Lolcow. Turan started posting videos in 2021, focusing on his job as a sheep shearer in Perth, Western Australia. He came to prominence in 2022 and 2023, growing a cult following that watched him travel and document his journeys. In mid-2023, he became increasingly known due to a series of drug-related events, causing him to look visibly snotty and inspiring concern from his viewers. He's additionally addressed his own drug addiction. By some online, he's been compared to both Daniel Larson and World of T-shirts.

Background

Spidey Turan, real name William Turan,[5] is a 20-year-old influencer originally from Perth, Western Australia. Besides being Australian, he is also a Turkish citizen because his father is from Turkey.[6] Around the year 2019, Turan struggled with drug addiction and abuse, as well as homelessness.[8] Also according to Turan, he is diagnosed with both Autism and ADHD.

Online History

Spidey Turan started uploading videos to YouTube in mid-2021, uploading his first video to his YouTube[1] channel Aussieshearingshedvlogs on July 23rd, 2021, gaining roughly 4,300 views in two years (shown below). The video, and many of his videos thereafter, were vlogs that documented his life as a sheep shearer in his hometown of Perth, Western Australia.



A few months later, on November 26th, 2021, Turan uploaded his first TikTok[2] video to his account @shearingshedvlogs, gaining roughly 1,900 plays in two years (shown below, left). Turan's TikTok account first went viral with a TikTok[3] uploaded on December 20th, 2021, that was a clip compilation of street interviews in Perth. The video received roughly 455,700 plays and 44,900 likes in two years (shown below, right).

In early August 2022, Turan posted two TikTok[6][7] videos in which he stated that he quit his job as a sheep shearer and was flying to Turkey to enroll in the Turkish military. After being in Turkey for about a month, Turan left the country for the United Kingdom because he said was bored of the country.[9] He flew to the U.K. and eventually went to Scotland.[10] From there, he went to the U.S. where he stayed in South Dakota before going to Los Angeles, and later, New York.[11]

In Los Angeles, Turan's videos gained increased virality. For instance, he uploaded a TikTok[12] on December 5th, 2022, in which he was screaming, "I have autism and I'm from Australia!" to a man on a train who allegedly stole his phone, gaining roughly 7.2 million plays and 829,000 likes in six months (shown below, left). On December 13th, he uploaded a similar TikTok[13] about how to stay safe when going to "sketchy areas in LA," gaining roughly 1.2 million plays and 151,700 likes in six months (shown below, right).

@shearingshedvlogs it's okay, you can laugh. at least I still have my backup phone. This was my worst fear, having my phone stolen. it actually wasn't as bad as I expected and it could have been much worse. I ended up following this guy back to his homeless camp in Downtown LA and then his friend chased me with a pew pew. scariest moment of my life. if you want to see what happens next make sure you're following me because the full video was too long to upload and there's more to this #losangeles #theif #publicfreakout #confrontation ♬ original sound – ShearingShedVlogs

@shearingshedvlogs You really need to project you voice, don’t be afraid to shout. Also say “what are you talking to me for?” It is non confrontational yet effective at conveying self defense and tells the person to back off, Especially if you are interacting with someone who is inebriated. They won’t understand and see you as weak if you talk normally. #safetyfirst #streetsmart #streetsmarts #safety ♬ original sound – ShearingShedVlogs
