LETHBRIDGE - Some of the city's scenery and locals were part of a regular YouTube content creator's channel.
On Tuesday (Feb. 7), Julien Solomita, a California native, uploaded a vlog titled "So cold my camera froze" to his self-titled YouTube channel, after he and girlfriend, Jenna Marbles, visited the University of Lethbridge for a question and answer session.
Solomita, 24, started his channel back in 2010. He uploads regular videos that follow his, Jenna's and their three dog's lives in Los Angeles, California. He recently reached the 1-million subscriber milestone, and has more than 171-million total video views.
This was the couple's second trip to Alberta. They hosted a similar talk at MacEwan University in Edmonton in February 2016.
During his down time, Solomita captured some of Lethbridge's landmarks, including the Chinook Regional Hospital and High Level Bridge, using a Phantom 4 Pro drone and other cameras. He stated at one point in the video, "This High Level Bridge in Lethbridge is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen with my eyes, let alone the drone."
Temperatures that reached well below freezing and a huge dump of snow caught the group somewhat off guard, and even affected some of Solomita's equipment. The following video features Julien, Jenna and their manager, Rome McElroy.

Solomita included a thank you to the warm and welcoming Lethbridge residents they met, in the description of the video. He says everyone "genuinely had the greatest time."
