He published a video of Nash, his brother on a rooftop, and the clip was re-weaved by Tiffany Semashko so that the short video became viral within days. This was the beginning of a career for Hayes and his brother Nash as they began to gain massive popularity and followers on Vine. Shortly thereafter, the brothers took part in a field trip for social media personalities where they met and worked with Cameron Dallas, Shawn Mendes, Aaron Carpenter, and Taylor Caniff.
In July 2016, Hayes was involved in a fatal off-road motorcycle accident and was hospitalized.
