Hossain posted his hit video, "Drive Thru Invisible Man Prank," on January 9, 2013. The video shows him dressed up as a car seat and fooling workers at various fast food restaurants, such as McDonald's and Chick-fil-A. Hossain said he constructed the car-seat outfit in 12 hours after being inspired by an image he found on the Internet of a "guy who'd actually had a car-seat costume similar to what I built".
The prank gained immense popularity and was featured on Fox & Friends, Good Morning America, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, among others. As of 2014, the video received over 40 million total views.
In June 2014 Toyota featured Hossain in a similar invisible driver stunt in Europe, steering the Toyota Aygo.
In a video posted on March 4, 2014, Hossain pranked a homeless man named Eric Aursby, where Eric "won" a lottery using a "losing" lottery ticket Hossain gave to him. With the "losing" lottery ticket, Eric "won" $1,000, which was all part of the prank. After receiving the money, Eric tried to give Hossain half of it, which Hossain declined to take.
In the following weeks, Hossain posted another video in which he said that people (who were touched by Eric wanting to give half of the money to Hossain) asked how they could donate to Eric. Hossain set up a fundraiser, the goal being to collect a total of $20,000. The fundraiser collected more than $44,000 to a final tally of $66,000 from over 3,000 donors. Hossain said that he wanted to "improve his lifestyle" and emphasized Eric's personality. While collecting the money, Eric moved into a hotel room and was given a job at 7-Eleven via a friend. However, Hossain would later reveal that Eric never showed up for his work, telling Hossain that he "didn't feel like it". On May 7, 2014, Hossain uploaded a video to YouTube titled "Homeless Man Gets A Home" The video shows Hossain offering to buy dinner for Eric, but first Hossain says he has to stop by "his" house to get something. At the house, Hossain reveals that the house is not his, and it is actually Eric's. It was also later revealed that the house was paid for by thousands of Internet contributors for Eric. In a matter of days, the video received about 9 million views.
In February 2018, a video was posted containing a new interview of Eric, who claimed that he did not have access to the money and the house needed constant maintenance. He also alleged that he had not received any of the money raised from the fundraiser, he only stayed in the house from Hossain's second video for two months rather than a year and sometime after Eric left, the house was sold for $61,000 ($5,000 less than the amount raised in the fundraiser). Hossain responded on June 5, 2018, in a since-deleted Twitter post stating that the money was transferred to Eric and that he would provide bank statements to prove his innocence.
In June 2018, Eric stated he no longer wanted the money from Hossain and forgave him for his actions. However, in a July 2018 interview, Eric again accused Hossain of keeping most of the money from the fundraiser.
On August 3, 2020, a YouTube channel called JayLaw made a documentary about Hossain's "disappearance" from social media and YouTube. In the documentary, he investigates what actually happened to Hossain and the false scandal surrounding him and Eric. He also ended up contacting Trey, Hossain's ex-cameraman, where he confirms Hossain's innocence, as Trey himself was also part of the ''Homeless Lottery Winner'' and "Homeless Man Gets A Home" and confirmed Hossain is still around.
On November 18, 2020, Hossain returned to YouTube, ending his hiatus since the beginning of 2018. Hossain described his side of the story and the personal struggles he faced dealing with the aftermath of the "scandal". Hossain left the question about his return to YouTube unanswered and uncertain, explaining that his personality had completely changed and that he had been diagnosed with depression because of the false scandal. He also proceeded to show all of the evidence of him giving money to Eric, hence showing that Eric had been lying the entire time.
In January 2021, Hossain uploaded a new drive-thru prank video featuring the Star Wars character Grogu, beginning his return to the platform as confirmed by his Twitter and his YouTube channel. Beginning on January 6, 2021, Hossain has continued to post prank videos on YouTube.
