Beneath the Bridge is a YouTube series featuring coverage of Chris co-created by Twitter users cw_true/smokelydokely (Smoky Chris) and NoChanceHigh1 (KevinT/ThatSperg)[2]. It is posted on the YouTube channel @SomeChannellllllll.[3] The series had a stated goal of "examining a crucial element behind Chris Chan: the trolls. Entitled "Beneath the Bridge," this series will examine the trolls who have interacted with Chris prior to his introduction to the Internet up to the present day. It will not focus solely on Chris Chan's life." It ran from February 2019 until being abandoned in December of the same year, around the same time the creators' Twitter accounts were banned.[4] It is unknown why the series was abandoned.

The videos are a in-depth look at some of the people and trolls that have influenced Chris's life, starting with Sarah Hammer and ending with Jimmy Hill. Some more prevalent people such as Megan Schroeder have multiple parts devoted to them.

On 5 November 2020, Chris chatted in The Place about his experience watching the series, noting in particular that he had been cringing and crying during its coverage of Megan Schroeder.[1]
