Rye-Rye99 is a somewhat successful YouTuber from Canada who focuses on the animatronic characters from the video game: “Five Nights at Freddy’s” (FNAF), which is created by Scott Cawthon. He is most well-known for his Source Filmmaker animations of the FNAF characters and many Garry’s Mod gaming videos he makes with his friends, who are usually other fans of the FNAF series.
His goal on YouTube is like any other, get as many views, and upload as much as possible, while also gaining friends in the process. He is a very easy going guy and has gained many friends online since his joining in 2014, however, has also lost a few due to unruly circumstances. Rye-Rye99 has expressed his concerns before but he does not to it as much now and he does admit he is as human as everybody else and that he has made mistakes just like many people. His goal in his videos is to ensure a good laugh for anyone who is watching.
Rye-Rye99 started off his YouTube channel with a series of videos, making domino rallies. These videos consisted of him setting up a simple set of dominoes, and then knocking them down in front of the camera. These videos actually showed Rye's face a few times, but despite this, he did not do an official face-reveal until later in 2015, to which he did when his channel reached 60,000 subscribers.
Rye-Rye99 makes music as a hobby, sometimes for use in his videos, or other matters. He mainly makes music using GarageBand, uploading them to his channel occasionally. His most popular track is the theme to “Zany GMOD”, which he composed. He even made some music for FNAF's got talent, an SFM animation series he did on his channel.
Source FilmMaker Animations (SFM)
As the Five Nights at Freddy’s video game series grew in mass popularity, so did Rye-Rye99’s SFM animations of the animatronic characters. He was inspired by videos that other YouTubers had made. These videos differ in their lengths, the shortest is around 30 seconds, whereas the longest is 4 to 5 minutes. Some of them focused on the unsettling nature of the original games. Rye-Rye99’s friends supplied some voices, and he made all the animations to go with them. The SFM animations are somewhat improvised but will stick to a script if the video becomes over-complicated.
Rye has a new Gmod series called Zany Gmod which started on April 14, 2017. In this series, he and his friends play Gmod and like to mess around and have fun. He makes Zany Gmod episodes most of the time and has done over 50 Zany Gmod episodes almost in a row. Even though new episodes that get posted only get about 5,000 views or more a day, he enjoys doing it and playing with some of his friends. Some of his fans said that "Zany Gmod is getting boring, we want the old Rye back, we want more SFM videos, not Zany Gmod." Some of Rye's friends laugh at some of the moments they have when playing GMOD especially if one of them fails. For example, in Episode 50 when they change into FNAF OC Toy Chica and the goal of the game was to find the people that are Toy Chica. One of the guys screamed and Rye laughed his head off. Zany Gmod series is a good series to watch if you want a laugh.
FNAF's Got Talent
Rye-Rye99 has created FNAF's Got talent officially on his channel in February 2018 after working on it since May of 2017. In the series, Rye was the host, and Freddy, Chica, and Bonnie were the judges of the series. Rye has even made strawpolls for the fans to vote for each of the performers that made it in the series. Rye-Rye99 has made 4 videos that showed talents from Incredi-Fred to Felicia the Fox and another that showed the awards. In the 5th and final video of the series, Rye announced that Felicia the Fox was the winner based on the fans voting.
Rye-Rye99 did a good job on the series and a few people even reacted to some of the videos in the series.
Challenges and Conclusion
Rye-Rye99 also did some challenges on his channel as well. He did two bean boozled challenges on his channel. One of them reached over 1 million views because of it funny comedy and reactions whenever Rye or Zack tasted one of the nasty jelly beans. Rye also did the Pizza challenge where he would get random ingredients based on the number he picked. The result of that pizza challenge was that the pizza with the ingredients was not very good but Rye had fun doing it.
The challenge videos Rye did are funny because of the reactions of he has to them especially in his last challenge, the hot pepper challenge. Basically, the point of that challenges Rye did was to have fun and have people watch them for laughs. Even though Rye has not done a challenge video in awhile, you never know what could come next. Part of Rye's channel may be FNAF, Zany GMOD, SFM Animations, etc. He loves doing what he does on his channel and while he wants to get views, he also has fun doing what he does on Youtube.
