Josh Smith, also known by his username JSmithOTI ("OTI" being short for "On the Internet"), and sometimes JSmith_OTI or just J Smith, is a YouTuber who makes Let's Plays. His YouTube introduction states that he's here to "hang out, play games, and have a few laughs for the enjoyment of the masses".
Unlike his Saving Progress co-hosts, JSmithOTI is a U.S. citizen rather than Canadian. He made friends with Northernlion through the Internet, Xbox Live, and a video-game website they made together when they were young. He first appeared on YouTube alongside Northernlion during the latter's Let's Look At of Orion Dino Beatdown.
On Friday 26 April 2013, Smith started a livestream on Twitch.TV that ultimately ran for fifty-two hours and peaked at almost three thousand viewers at one time.
The livestream included multiple co-hosts and visitors; ranging from the usual group – such as Northernlion, RockLeeSmile, Ohmwrecker, AlpacaPatrol, Green9090, RedPandaGamer, and michaelalfox – to other YouTubers, such as PrescriptionPixel and PewDiePie.
After Smith fell asleep during the stream, an impromptu script reading of Pulp Fiction was started, which took three and a half hours to finish. A script reading of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, which they read soon after, took almost five hours.
Towards the end, many indie game developers such as Mike Bithell (developer of Thomas Was Alone), Daniel "Kappische" Kaplan (of Mojang), Stewart Gilray of Just Add Water (current developer of the Oddworld series), and Shahid Kamal Ahmad of Sony joined the stream to discuss indie game development.
