The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Unlike several other popular YouTube gamers who have been uploading videos from a long time, MrCrainer made his entry into the YouTube relatively recently. It was just a few years ago in early 2014 that he joined YouTube. Aged 19 at that time, he began by uploading Minecraft videos to his channel which started gaining popularity within a few weeks. Encouraged by the initial support he received, he continued making more videos, eventually branching out into other games as well. The number of his subscribers continued increasing steadily and they happily lapped up all that he had to offer. He received a lot of positive feedback from his followers and decided to make some fun challenge videos for them as well in addition to the gaming ones. This proved to be an excellent strategy as his fans were more than happy to watch his challenge videos and shared them on other mediums as well. Thus within a period of three years not only was MrCrainer able to accumulate huge subscribers not only on YouTube, but also on Instagram and Twitter. What adds to his popularity is his collaboration with other well-known gamers, such as SSundee and CaptainSparklez, which further boosts his image as a fun-loving gamer who loves to hang out with his friends. This popular YouTuber also has his own line of merchandise which he sells through the website https://shop.makerstudios.com/collections/mistercrainer.
