Skylanders: Trap Team
Brandon had uploaded many videos on the fourth installment of the Skylanders game series, Skylanders: Trap Team. These have included Skylanders toy unboxing videos and playthroughs of the game itself.
On March the 4th of 2015, Brandon uploaded a confession video on his main channel about his past life and one specific event that kept getting brought up and was threatened by others to be thrown out into the public. He apparently was losing a lot of friends and was going through a lot, and simply wanted to get the story off of his chest. Everything in the video he still claims to be completely true.
He reveals that he doesn't know who his father is, and that he knows who his mother is but never talks to her, and hasn't met her in a long time. He also states that his mother was not a good person. Throughout the video, although he is nervous, he does try not to tear up or cry. His life started off rough, and his mother did not look after Brandon when he was very young.
His mother ended up in court and his relatives took it upon themselves to care for and raise Brandon. His adoptive father was a musician and played country music and he would take Brandon to his concerts. When he got to high school, he lost interest in education, so he was put in a school that undesirables went to, where he played EverQuest on his laptop every day and learned nothing, he also got beat up a lot and his money stolen on repetitive occasions, he also had his laptop broke. On the weekends, he would play dungeons and dragons with his middle school friends.
When he was 17, he met a girl and she was very important to him and became his first love. However, she ended up cheating on him, which was devastating according to Brandon.
Brandon would always go to his best friends house, and his best friend had a sister younger than Brandon himself. His friend's sister was talking to Brandon a lot and would comfort him about what was happening in his life. They started to develop feelings for each-other. She had just turned 15 and Brandon had turned 18 years old. Her parents hired a private detective to watch them both. They would talk online through AOL and other forms of messaging services. They got pretty intimate, but they had only talked in this way. One day when he woke up there was a knock on his door, when opening the door he was introduced to the private detective, who arrested him because of the chat logs that they had found from AOL.
After his arrest, he was taken to jail. He had his glasses taken off of him and he couldn't see. He was charged with a class B felony for unlawful transaction w/ a minor 1st degree <16 yrs. He had to go to a therapist class for pedophiles, and they took all of Brandon's computers. The therapist contacted the court to tell them that Brandon did not belong to the therapist class at all and told the court that he didn't have to go again.
For the past ten years after this event, he did not leave the house. He moved and Brandon felt like a bad person. He became a shut-in and spent every single day in one room, on his computer. He never left the house or saw anyone other than his adoptive mother, which was very rare. He'd play games such as World of Warcraft or Katawa Shoujo. Sometimes he reportedly wanted to commit suicide.
One day he made a Minecraft series called "The Legend Of Hobo" and it received over a million views. He then made more episodes of The Legend Of Hobo. Popular YouTuber "Sky Does Minecraft" told Brandon he liked his videos and he started collaborating with popular YouTubers such as Sky and CaptainSparklez and JeromeASF. He then developed a fan-base of people that enjoyed his videos.
Events after confession video
Clara Swan, also known as her YouTube personality "ClaraBabyLegs" was his girlfriend at the time.
On April 8, 2015, Brandon uploaded another video in reply to rumors of him raping a 10-year-old girl when he was 23, clearly by all of the cursings he was very angry and he was repeatedly saying he was "done". This video was deleted 30 minutes later but was re-uploaded by several other users.
On April 18, 2015, Brandon then uploaded a video of himself talking about how he was going to continue to do YouTube. In the video, he showed off what he referred to as a 'bitter-sweet gift', his gold plaque from YouTube for reaching 1 million subscribers. During the video, he also said that he would be seeking professional help and that he would be doing more vlogs on his vlogging channel BashDoesThings. While shooting the video, it was clear that Brandon was distraught, and showed signs of crying often, both through his speech, as well as the sound and tone of his voice.
Despite the torrent of hate, Brandon's fan-base, the majority, at least, appear to have rallied together to help him feel better, either by providing kind words, wisdom, or advice. Some fans, however, have resorted to turning their anger towards Keemstar and his channel DramaAlert, who had, before sitting down and interviewing Brandon via Skype in one of his videos, thrown hate in Brandon's direction. It has been noted that Keemstar showed some respect towards Brandon as he told his side of the story and he did apologize. Whether this was genuine respect is still a topic of speculation among both fans and haters.
Brandon later posted a video on his vlogging channel, calling on his fans to not hate on Clara, and stating that she was not a gold-digger. He also claimed to still love her, referring to her as the love of his life. He also stated that, while he did feel upset about the drama, he was looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Brandon is continuing to upload consistently to his vlogging channel.
Clara herself also uploaded videos about the situation.
On May 4, 2015, Brandon and Clara posted a video on Brandon's main channel and talked about the fact that in September 2014, Clara had a miscarriage. In the video, Clara and Brandon apologized to each other and the fans for everything that happened while they weren't together. They also stated that they wanted to get back together and work on the relationship. At the end of the video, they gave each other 18 million volts of forgiveness with a taser. Now, the are back together and recently moved into the new BAHMlounge house, where they continue to be meme loving lets players.
On October 1, 2015, Brandon tweeted that he was depressed and suicidal. He claimed that his channel was dying and that he is constantly called a pedophile rapist on a daily basis. Brandon also claimed that he was dealing with depression. Furthermore, he tweeted that people send death threats to him and tell him that he should kill himself. Roughly an hour later after all of this went down, he spoke with Barnacles who comforted him. Brandon then took the tweets down and apologized for his outburst on Twitter.
Circa May of 2017, Brandon has deleted his twitter account and erased all content entirely. Fans have parked his twitter handler and begun a hashtag in hopes of finding out why he has gone silent.
