One of our favourite pieces of news to write is celebration-centered, particularly when YouTubers achieve greatness beyond our wildest dreams. But with Louise Pentland launching a new fashion line, Tanya Burr fighting against gender inequality and Ingrid Nilsen having a voice with the UN, we have to ask ourselves where all the men are – and more importantly, where are all the gamers?! Thankfully, in the nick of time, JackSepticEye sweeps in to announce he that just reached 9 million subscribers.

Lets go all the way back in time and celebrate the rise of Jackaboy together shall we? Wait… he only started YouTube 4 years ago?! Jack (or should we say, Sean William McLoughlin) started his YouTube channel with a Solid Snake impression before moving onto let’s plays of Far Cry 3 and Dark Souls. But he hit the jackpot when a certain famous YouTuber gave him a shoutout in one of their popular vlogs…

That’s right, back in 2013 PewDiePie ran a shout-out competition in which he asked his Bro’s which YouTube channel he should follow and recommend. When his Friday’s With PewDiePie video went live, everyone was introduced to an incredibly small channel ran by Jack… with only 2,217 subscribers. Look how far he’s come in four years, now boasting over 9 MILLION of them! He’s even become best friends with Felix and other prominent YouTubers such as Markiplier and JonTron – he must be living out his wildest fantasies RN.

Whilst his old videos show a significantly calmer JackSepticEye, he’s always prided himself on being the “most energetic video game commentator on YouTube” which is fairly obvious if you’re ever seen one of his videos before. Now, in celebration of his success, let’s revisit one of his most popular and unforgettable videos; The time that he encountered Cleverbot Evie. Oh, and don’t forget to send your love and congratulations over to Jack on Twitter!
