Soon after the launch, his gaming channel started attracting tens of thousands of subscribers, surpassing the one million mark within a short period. His Minecraft-related videos became so popular that many fellow YouTubers like SkyDoesMinecraft, CaptainSparklez, and JeromeASF, expressed their interest in collaborating with him. He is also well known for creating the web series Bashpack and a series called The Legend of Hobo. He then started a second channel called BashDoesThings, where he vlogged about his life.
