For all parents who believe playing video games is unproductive, reconsider this thought. There remain some exceptions, one of which is YouTube star “Pack A Puncher,” an account with 70,000+ subscribers dedicated to playing Call of Duty Zombies. Pack A Puncher, who attends Academic Magnet, has received exponential popularity since he started the channel on January 18, 2016. In his channel, Pack has a wide variety of videos, including livestreams, COD uploads, vlogs, and even diss raps. His active subscribers pride themselves as the “Pack A Puncher Army,” and some of the most active members receive “moderator” status, which permits them to have banning capabilities in the livestreams. The channel has accrued exactly 70,332 subscribers (as of Monday, February 13 at 9:30 AM), but the number is always in flux. The total number of views is 2,558,513, which accounts for all YouTube channels which have actually watched a video. This number could potentially double if it took into consideration all the viewers who do not have an active YouTube channel. To put in comparison really how large these numbers are, here are some demographic reference points: If a person accounted for each view, the Pack A Puncher account would be the 36th largest state by population. Also in terms of the 2.5 million views, the total viewership of Pack A Puncher is on track to surpass the population of Toronto (2.6 million) and Chicago (2.7 million). The 70,000 subscribers, real people who have clicked the small red “Subscribe” button, would exceed Greenville, South Carolina’s population if concentrated in their own city. Pack A Puncher merchandise will be available on Sunday, including hoodies and shirts in all sizes and colors. Among Pack A Puncher’s other successes, he was uploaded on Famous Birthdays, a website (www.famousbirthdays.com) dedicated to publicizing birthdays and other information of celebrities. In an interview with Pack A Puncher, I learned more about his motives and the channel dynamic.

 

“Is your family supportive of your channel?”

“It took my family a while to fully understand what I do, but now that they get it, they support me 100%”.

 

“What’s your favorite quote?”

“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

“If you’re a hater, see ya later”

 

Who is your biggest role model and why?

“My biggest role model is TheSmithPlays, a YouTuber who covers the same content as I do and has been doing it for 6+ years (1.3 million subscribers). The reason why is because he never gave up and now is doing YouTube full time.”

 

Thank you Pack A Puncher for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your insight. Pack A Puncher also has Twitter (@Pack_A_Puncher) and Instagram (@Pack_A_Puncher). We cannot reveal Pack’s name due to anonymity reasons, so the only way to follow the hype is subscribing to Pack A Puncher and following his social media accounts.
