ExplodingTNT is a Canadian YouTuber that makes Minecraft machinimas and more videos. His channel is known for making "If _____ were in Minecraft", where he depicts strange things being added to Minecraft.
When TNT first started, he made videos about various things in Minecraft exploding, hence the name "ExplodingTNT." Eventually, he decided to change the main focus of his channel to making the Minecraft machinimas he still makes today. These machinimas typically start with If, Why, or How, and follow various comedic scenes revolving around the concept described in the video. In late 2015, ExplodingTNT's machinimas began to grow more in-depth, with a more organized plot line, title, and character development.
- He is one side of a long-standing feud between him and the Pink Sheep, a god-like sheep with a mustache. The sheep is a fan-favorite and has his own YouTube channel with over a million additional subscribers, also called Pink Sheep. Pink sheep has a son called Purple Shep, who has a deformed face and also has a YouTube channel. Pink Sheep's fan base is called the Prankster Gangster Nation.
- In an SMG4 Video he was supposed to be in a video but dropped due to a failure along with Purple Shep, so SMG4 failed to put in Purple Shep.
- ExplodingTNT has kept his real face, real name and age quite private on YouTube for a while, however in his 500,000 subscriber special (a montage of his channel from the beginning) uploaded on June 23rd, 2013, he reveals his first name is Sam, and in a more recent video, Minecraft Q&A, uploaded on April 22nd, 2017, he says that he is 20 years old.
Several of TNT's videos have cameos from other Minecraft YouTubers, such as SkyDoesMinecraft, JeromeASF, DanTDM, Failboat and others, but it is unlikely these are actually them. He has collaborated with other YouTubers before, such as his current best friends GameplayerHD, Failboat, AdamRodriguezGames, and many others. Much like It's JerryandHarry, Most of his machinimas feature characters talking with text over their head, but he has used voice actors as well, such as AdamRodriguezGames.
He also owns Minecraft minigame servers with GameplayerHD, called MCOrigins and The Nova, that were both featured in some of his videos, and a second channel entitled TheTNTExploders. He currently has over four million subscribers, making him one of the most popular Minecraft machinima makers. He always likes to make his subscribers laugh every video, and has become a hero to several people worldwide.
- Due to him loving cheese, he is a mouse.
- He even created his own book called ExplodingTNT Vs Everything.
