Gaming & YouTube
TTG started his career with Twitch, a live streaming video platform. The number of his followers was well over the 40,000 mark within the first few days since the launch of his channel. His videos were mostly related to games with his live stream videos being the most popular ones.
TTG quickly gained popularity as everything he touched turned to gold, including his reaction videos. One of the main reasons for his fame is that almost all his videos are hilarious in nature. TTG is naturally funny and is good at making his viewers laugh. The name, ‘The Traveling Gamer’, was given to him because he travels a lot for his job.
He joined YouTube shortly after he got famous on Twitch. He started posting prank, challenge and reaction videos on his YouTube channel. His first ever video on the channel explained what his viewers can expect from his videos. In his second video, ‘Light Skin against the World’, he spoke about a sensitive issue. However, his sheer presence made the video enjoyable and funny.
His videos often feature his roommates, Kris and Jesse, who too, are YouTube personalities. TTG’s first reaction video on YouTube was controversial and funny as he had reacted on Donald Trump’s inaugural speech. As soon as the video was posted, his fans and other viewers were all over the comment section, letting him know how ridiculously funny the video was.
In one of his videos, he introduced his pet, a pup, which had urinated and defecated all over the house they live in. So, TTG made a video on how to potty train pets. His next set of videos was on basketball. But instead of making the usual basketball video, where players would show off their expertise in handling the ball, TTG came up with an interesting twist as he and his roommates played the game with life jackets on.
The next video on basketball was a step ahead in terms of its entertainment quotient. TTG made a new rule that mandated the players to experience an electric shock every time the opposition scores a point. LaMelo Ball, a famous American basketball player, was featured in the video.
TTG’s next set of videos was based on challenges. One of the challenges had him reacting to funny videos without laughing. He also challenged his fans to watch the videos without smiling or laughing, which proved to be difficult for his fans and general viewers. In his next challenge video, he played the entry music of WWE fighters and his roommates had to identify the fighter.
