Harry's former Twitter bio

If you want to buy some cheap and reliable coins, then I'll leave a link to MMOGA in the description.

Harold Christopher George "Harry" Lewis (born 24 November 1996), better known as wroetoshaw (or W2S for short), is a very popular British FIFA player on YouTube. He is also a member of a group of friends known collectively as the Sidemen, although his status in the group is particularly low since he is the only non-original membernote  and doesn't play with them very frequently.

Most of his videos consist of commentary on FIFA gameplay, including things like pack openings, "pink slips", and remarkable moments. He has a recently-revived second channel called W2SPlaysnote  where he plays a wider palette of games, a majority of them being Grand Theft Auto V videos.

While most certainly not as hammy and over-the-top as a certain other Sideman, Harry does have his moments where he loses his cool while gaming, consisting mainly of Big "NO!"s and broken chairs and/or controllers. He has an on-off penchant for swearing, and he has been described by fellow Sideman Simon Minter (a.k.a. miniminter) as "racist", which pretty much summarizes Harry as a Sideman.

Here are his Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.

Harry also participated in 2015's Legends of Gaming competition alongside the likes of ComedyShortsGamer, TheSyndicateProject, Ali-A, and Calfreezy (the last of whom is also one of Harry's two flatmates). Harry was revealed as the competition's fourth legend. You can see a playlist of his LOG videos here.

Wroetotropes:

  • all lowercase letters: His username, of course. Also his Xbox Live gamertag, wroetobeg.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Believes that his name is an aversion, due to tons of kids responding the exact same way when he told them his name: "Oh, like Harry Potter?" An example played straight is what he wishes he was named: Tyrone.
  • Big Brother Bully: Downplayed with Harry and his little brother, Josh.note  He never goes beyond things like shameless pranks, never actually wanting to hurt him.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Harry's the small one compared to his fellow YouTuber and flatmate Calfreezy, who's over six feet tall.
  • Big "NO!" / Big "YES!": Tons of them in his FIFA videos.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: The first three players on Harry's "FIFA 16" team lineup: Tobi, your nan, Hitler.
  • British Teeth: SquidgetHarry's teeth weren't in the best shape, as seen here and here (complete with tooth gap).
  • Catch-Phrase:
  • Child Prodigy: The "prodigy" part is debatable, but as select videos show, he was into content-creating on YouTube far before he started his current channel.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: His vehicle colour in GTA Online sessions with the Sidemen is usually (fittingly) light blue.
  • Cool Car:
    • Owned a chrome Range Rover Evoque, then later claimed to have upgraded to a rose gold-tinted Ferrari 458, until he admitted that he didn't own it and he just simply had the Evoque rewrapped in a gold tint.
    • In summer 2015, Harry purchased a white 50th anniversary model Lamborghini Gallardo and sold the Evoque to Calfreezy.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: As luck may have it, Harry made tons of videos and had several channels back when he was younger, and he often revisits them just for the cringe factor. (Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, Video 4, Video 5)
  • Embarrassing Nickname: In his first Doritos Crash Course video, he is given the nickname "AIDS Boy", which he immediately begins protesting against.
  • Epic Fail: His Doritos Crash Course video on his second channel, appropriately called "I'M SO S**T!", runs rampant with ample fuckups from Harry, causing him to pretty much always get dead last on every run.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Has never been inverted to such a great extent.
  • Exact Words/Tempting Fate: In a Q&A, he tells his viewers that he now has a PO box that fans can use to send stuff to him. His only condition is that no one sends him "shit". In his second video of the subsequent Mail Monday series, he actually does get a package with shit inside.
  • Fan Disservice:
    • Harry posted a really out-of-the-blue picture of him naked in his flat, allowing to see his pale ass.
    • When his phone and Twitter account was hacked, an image of his testicles were uploaded to the account. Why did Harry have that photo on his phone to begin with is something we don't need answered, but he did confirm it was his. Although the photo was taken down on Harry's account, it's not completely erased from the web. (NSFW)
    • After Insomnia 55 was through, Harry tweeted a picture of the Sidemen signing a wall. However, he did leave in a little surprise. (NSFW)
  • Grammar Nazi: Calls out a lot of haters for grammatical errors in his hate comments video.
  • Helium Speech: Is prone to get extremely high-pitched when he gets excited.
  • Humiliation Conga: The poor lad has gotten hacked way too many times.
    • For instance, his FIFA 15 account getting hacked twice. The first time around, it was by someone with an email named hitwitterfromthehacker@gmail.com who replaced Harry's club with another one. This isn't even mentioning how he had a full legend teamnote  on his club. However, he managed to get his account back...only to have it hacked again. This time, his club was not swapped out, but it was just infiltrated and raided. Almost all of his coins were stolen, going from a whopping 8.6 million to a measly 7.2k. The hacker sold all of his best and most valuable players for millions of coins eachnote , and just to taunt Harry even further, put four crummy cards on his transfer list. These cards consisted of 3 silver Igor Lolos, and one bronze Chris Hackett. Yeah.
  • Iconic Outfit: His blue jumper/hoodie.
  • I'm Going to Hell for This: In LEAKED FIFA FOOTAGE, Harry says this after he has Hitler scoring a goal and doing handsprings and flips.
  • It Is Pronounced Tro Pay: Viewers can notice that his pronunciation of "shit" is a bit closer to "sheet".
  • Keet: When he's excited... well, he's excited.
  • Large Ham: The only guy in the Sidemen to rival KSI’s.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In Harry's Search and Discard game with Calfreezy, Harry decides to go for Cal's goalkeeper, where he has a player. Freezy manages to make him change his mind and switch to the other available space, much to Harry's chagrin once he realizes he's just been tricked. However, Harry hits Freezy right back with this, winning him the game and allowing him to keep his remaining player (TOTS Sanchez).
  • Lazy Bum: Has been accused by the Sidemen and the non-Sidemen YouTubers that he shares a flat with (Calfreezy and Callux) for being this. Freezy sums it up pretty well:
  • Le Parkour: Harry, Calfreezy, and Joe Weller's first challenge to prove if they have what it takes to be the next Ant-Man.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Subverted; while he does wear his jumper frequently, he does occasionally choose not to wear it.
  • Literal-Minded/Visual Pun: "FIFA 15 LEAKED FOOTAGE", in which we see Harry working under the sink, only to pull out a copy of FIFA 15 and say that the game had literally leaked.
    • Does it once more in FIFA 15 LEAKED!!, where he gets a package from EA containing the game, and opens the game box to find leeks inside.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Wroeto___". Aside from his YouTube username, he's applied it to his Xbox gamertag and Rockstar Games Social Club username (wroetobeg), and one of his PSN usernames (wroetobog17), as well as his Snapchat handle (wroetosnap).
  • Me's a Crowd: As seen here in his current Twitter profile picture, reportedly made by a fan.
  • Ms. Fanservice: His sister. She is so hot that the other members of the Sidemen keep lusting over her,
  • Oh, Crap!:
    "OHHH, IT'S SHIT! HE SENT ME SHIT!"
  • Once per Episode: All videos used to open with a quick ad for the FIFA coin site MMOGA, and then it was changed to FrenzyFIFA.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted with his two flatmates, who are both named Callum (Calfreezy and Callux).
  • Overly Long Gag: From "WORST WAGER EVER!"; Harry trying to force his chair out of his window, and then attempting to pull it back in when it doesn't fit. This is completely unedited, mind you.
  • Red Oni: To Calfreezy's blue oni (or rather, the Dinho to Cal's Frooby). It's especially notable in any videos they do together, such as the Q&A or the accent challenge.
  • Running Gag:
    • Rarely does a video go by where he loses a FIFA wager (or at the very least concedes a goal) and doesn't break his chair and/or his controller.
    • Apparently Harry is 12.
    • "Cue the Titanic music." Usually used for when he has to discard a beloved player.
    • Referring Malian and Bordeaux football player Cheick Diabaté as Diabetes whenever he packed him.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Oh yeah. Case in point.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In this video, Harry promptly leaves the room after his opponent takes out Harry's Man of the Match Messi.
  • Sixth Ranger: Harry is this to the Sidemen. He's the group's only non-founding member as he joined in 2014,note  lives with two non-Sidemen YouTubers (Calfreezy and Callux), and ironically is the least involved in the group's videos.
  • Spit Take: A very out-of-the-blue one at the start of "I GOT F**KING HACKED".
  • Take That!: He makes a little skit of how he thinks EA hires people for live chats. Said skit was also in EA BANNED ME!, natch.
    (Harry walks through a door with the EA Sports logo on it and sits down with another Harry dressed up as an EA executive.)
    EA Executive: Okay, so I hear that you're applying for a job on our live chat.
    (Harry says nothing.)
    EA Executive: Oooookay, then. Anyway, here at EA, customer care is our main priority. (cut to Harry staring blankly) So on the live chat, we're looking to employ someone who's intentive, supportive, and really understands what the customer wants. Did you get that?
    (Harry still isn't speaking.)
    EA Executive: Do you even understand English?
    (Harry shakes his head.)
    EA Executive: Great stuff. You're hired!
  • Tempting Fate:
    • Many have speculated that Harry displaying his club name and the number of coins and FIFA points he has was what led to him getting hacked. He did cover it up in the future with a FUT Founder that displayed some of his social network handles.
    • A benevolent example; before opening a Team of the Season pack, he practically prayed to EA to get someone good after a string of bad packs. He then got Ronaldo.
  • Those Two Guys: With Calfreezy; the two are known as Frooby (Cal) and Dinho (Harry).
  • Two First Names: Four to be exact.
  • Word Purée Title: In the past, there's no known origins for Harry's username being Wroetoshaw, aside from one of his alternate surnames apparently being Shaw. The Sidemen Book reveals that his name is a portmanteau of two footballer names, Nicky Wroe and Tom Bradshaw.
