Meet Timothée Chalamet’s YouTube alter egos: ModdedController360 & Lil Timmy Tim

As thousands of people around the world picked up a copy of the first Dune book, scavenging for more Timmy content by imagining him as Paul for the entirety of the book, it was revealed that Timothée Chalamet used to be an Xbox YouTuber. 

Chalamet’s channel, ModdedController360, is still up and running. It currently has 34.7k subscribers, although it only has three videos in its repertoire. Each video was made over a decade ago, all containing young Timothée flexing his DIY Xbox 360 controller designs.  

But wait, there’s more! It turns out that YouTube has a lot more Timothée Chalamet content hidden in its recesses. So much more content than just the usual celebrity interviews, movie promos, and press conferences. Content that fans were quick to find and enthusiastic to share. 

If ModdedController360 was one of Chalamet’s alter egos, then you must also meet Lil Timmy Tim (if you haven’t already). 

Fall deeper in love with Timothée Chalamet and with — believe it or not — statistics! This video’s still got us wondering what Miss Lawton’s reaction was to Timmy ending the video declaring his need to go number 2. 

Of course, we can’t count out this iconic performance either. 

It’s always fun to be able to see another side of a very public figure, especially one that wears a neon pink wig and tell us to “say ‘ruh ruh’ like a dungeon dragon”! Thanks to YouTube we can see the gamer and rapping side of Timothée Chalamet. Now, let’s all hope and pray that Lil Timmy Tim drops his first album soon!
