HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being the next huge hit on YouTube doesn’t come easy these days.

In a world where new media goes viral each day, rookie actor Nayip Ramos is trying hard to get a slice of the pie.

Ramos and his buddy, Kyle Slabotsky, star in the YouTube series Apt. #157, which follows Ramos as he crashes on Slabotsky’s couch and brings constant chaos into his apartment.

Ramos says the improv-heavy show was inspired by true events, but insists he’s not nearly as obnoxious as his onscreen character.

Still, being outrageous on YouTube may be the key to helping his star rise.

Ramos admits the competition for online fame is stiff, what with videos of cats playing with iPads popping up daily.

His dream is to get unemployed actress Lindsay Lohan to play his girlfriend on Apt. #157, which would get them instant attention.

For now, Ramos will gladly take any and all the groupies he can get.
