VideoGameDunkey Life

Jason Yevgeniy Gastrow (born January 30, 1991), also known as Videogamedunkey or simply Dunkey, is an American YouTuber known for his videos, which mix crude humor with video game critique.

Gastrow's YouTube channel had over five million followers by March 2019, and his videos had collectively earned more than two billion views.

Personal life

Gastrow was born on January 30, 1991. He has lived in Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin. Gastrow's mother is a second-grade educator. Gastrow married Leah Bee, a YouTuber, in September 2019.

It's a common misconception and a running gag on the channel that Gastrow is black, which Bee attributes to his voice and the fact that his face is rarely seen in videos.


VideoGameDunkey Career


Since 2003, Gastrow has been making online videos. He started creating Flash animations that he posted on the website Newgrounds under the name "Meatwadsprite." "Great Yoshi Migration" was his first film on display, as well as a parody of the Village People song "Y.M.C.A." Gastrow said he wanted to be an animator when he was young, according to the H3H3 Podcast.

Gastrow's first YouTube channel, videogamedunkey, was launched in 2010, with a video of him completing a sprint run of the 1991 game Battletoads. When Gastrow was playing Left 4 Dead with a buddy, he remembered the word "videogamedunkey." After trapping his buddy in the game, he told him he would let him go "go go magic dunk." Gastrow claimed that his channel's profile picture was created by Newgrounds animator Chris O'Neill in a 2015 Reddit thread. The videogamedunkey channel had 1.8 million viewers as of September 2015. Gastrow's films have collectively earned over three billion views. Gastrow is also on Twitter and Reddit pages, outside of YouTube. Dunkey's Castle, owned by Leah and his wife Leah, is also operated by a online merchandise store.

Gastrow's most popular channel on his website is video games. This includes writing research, playthroughs, video essays, and montages. He has also written about films, such as The Shining. Gastrow was best known for his coverage of the 2009 multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends, which was primarily known during his channel's early years. Gastrow "had a special place in the League of Legends universe for consistently releasing some of the finest, and certainly the funniest content in the game's huge community," Yannick LeJacq of Kotaku. However, he stopped playing League videos in September 2015 after being banned from "toxic" conduct, including repeatedly insulting other players on his team in the in-game chat. Gastrow has also been known for parodying jokes about Knack (2013) and its sequel Knack II (2017), PlayStation 4 games, to the point that the games "became the internet's most popular punchline."

Gastrow signed an internet entertainment company Machinima, Inc., which, according to him, earned a significant share of his income from advertisements. Gastrow changed from Machinima to Maker Studios in 2013, which reportedly brought more money than Machinima. If he made four videos for Xbox Live's Summer of Arcade, Microsoft promised to pay. Microsoft took down the video and cancelled the agreement shortly after Gastrow released the first video in which he mocked the game he was playing. Gastrow has since worked with Curse LLC, which he has lauded. Gastrow is said to be "most the highest-earning cultural commentator with ties to Madison."

Gastrow said in December 2020 that he would stop making "good videos" and instead shift to a daily schedule. He later released shorter videos that mocked his declared objectives and featured clickbait titles. In a fabled Minecraft video, Gastrow appeared as the default Steve avatar from Minecraft. The ultimate. According to his wife, the change in content style was because he was "feeling anxious about the new YouTube landscape and worried about the future," where his and other channels' past curated content was "overshadowed" by new trends and low effort stuff from larger channels. Polygon said that the videos were more effective than Gastrow's previous material, predicting that he was exemplifying the present challenges with YouTube to expose the situation and that he would eventually return to his normal curated content.

Gastrow joked in a live stream that Kanye West's then-upcoming album Donda would sample a song from the animated short film Strawinsky and the Mysterious House (2012); the exact clip was uncovered by fans, prompting the West's crew to note that Gastrow's crew watched Gastrow's stream.

Gastrow and his partner founded Bigmode, a video game publishing firm specializing in publishing indie games, in September 2022. "I think we're going to bring insane value to the table," Gastrow said in a video announcing the company's new venture, and "I think we're going to bring insane value to the table." Although some game journalists had criticized the game, indie developers' response was much welcomed.
