As most of y'all will know, The Fantastic Foursome was the name of the "Youtube supergroup" Dan & Phil had with Chris Kendall (crabstickz) and PJ Liguori (KickThePJ), mainly in 2011-2012. They would make videos together, tweet each other etc. and the group was quite popular among fans.
How did they know each other?
Phil and PJ met each other first, in 2007 through Youtube.
PJ was the one that introduced both Dan & Phil to Chris.

How did the group get started and why the name?
The guys came up with the name "Fantastic Foursome" themselves when they had to create a name for their joint Vyou account in 2011. Vyou's involvement was also the original reason the group got together and became a thing - they paid the guys to answer questions on the same account.
Under the cut is a list of Foursome happenings while they were active in 2011-2012 (and a bit of 2013).

Why did they stop making videos together?
Pretty sure they just moved on with their lives, ya'know.

Nothing happened. It’s just a thing that happened four years ago. Nothing happened. It doesn’t exist."
