All this raises a few questions: How precarious is stardom built on the mirage of a personal connection? Can Nash keep an aura of availability as his celebrity grows, or will he travel further out of reach, only to be replaced by a nearer star?
In its short life, Vine has spawned a suite of homegrown celebrities who are creeping toward six-figure salaries thanks to an exceptional — and exceptionally strange — talent that until now had little marketable value: They include Viners like "KingBach," a year-old actor who has landed a role on Showtime's House of Lies, and "BatDad," a father whose Batman alter ego helped him land a lucrative gig pimping laundry detergent for Tide.
Like other Vine sensations, Nash hopes six seconds of fame will be the gateway to something more lasting than minute stardom. Instead, having conquered the smartphone, Nash is going after larger screens that can put distance between an idol and his fans. A year into his Vine venture, Nash has nixed his college plans and dropped lacrosse, which he once counted on as his ticket to a school like Princeton or Penn.
I always thought about that.
And I liked it better. This spring, Nash also moved out to Los Angeles with Cam, a Vine star and aspiring actor Nash met through the social media site, so the two teens could be closer to their agents at William Morris Endeavor. Nash's father, Chad Grier, declined to share details about their new living arrangement, as the boys "are stalked on a fairly regular basis as it is.
And they have to be able to monetize the popularity while they have it. Louis to enjoy another new perk of fame that had come only recently: He, Hayes and Cam — Vine sensations with a few million followers each — were making their first appearance at Wizard World, a fan convention that seats its talent behind bouncers. The tickets — well over in total — sold out. On Friday, the group's first day in Missouri, Nash showed up half an hour late to a radio interview. He was wearing sweatpants and a gray sweatshirt.
Julia had set up the talk radio appearance by messaging Nash's father on every one of his social media accounts. As the trio entered, she rearranged her sweater and smoothed her hair. The guys shuffled past her, taking little notice. Julia stared at their huddle, but failed to elicit a reaction. Nash has a collection of catchphrases — including "Nashty," "or nah" and "zayummm" — that his fans repeat themselves and sport on T-shirts.
Nash himself regularly consults a Bible app on his iPhone. Asked whether Nash's faith has shaped his view of gay people or same-sex marriage, Chad Grier, answering on his son's behalf, wrote in an email, "Nash believe [sic] in equal rights for all people," but "is not a political buff nor does he wish to engage in politically charged debates especially when he is not very well educated on a particular issue.
The upbeat teen Nash plays on smartphone screens diverges so sharply from the kid who lashed out against "homos" that it can be hard to shake the sense his online image is at least in part a carefully constructed fiction — one more staged than his casual candids might suggest.
Nash discusses "filth" in terms that hint he may consider it imprudent for business reasons: You don't want to limit yourself. You want an audience that [includes] anyone from 2 years old to 50 years old," Nash said in an interview, before his controversial Vine had resurfaced.

While Facebook can feel like the Wal-Mart of social networks — the brightly-lit social media superstore teeming with parents — Vine can evoke a basement rec room on a Friday night — young, frenetic and full of inside jokes.#ASKNASH FT.

Nash realized from his study of Vine that the blockbuster formula had two ingredients: He had to be funny, and he had to be clean. He'll film his clips over and over again until nothing feels rushed, or spend hours on editing. Nash has an instinct for crafting short skits that go down easy in the din of the school bus or cafeteria, where his teenage fans inhale his videos. He saves them for after 3: Other Vine stars might spend days perfecting their uploads, devising elaborate sets or creating ingenious stop-motion animations.
