Brandon Allan Hardesty (born: April 13, 1987 (1987-04-13) [age 31]), known on YouTube as UndoTube (formerly ArtieTSMITW), is a YouTube user, best known for his reenactments and comical acts on YouTube.

Early life

Hardesty was born Brandon Allan Hardesty in Baltimore, Maryland on April 13, 1987, the youngest child in the family. Hardesty's mother collected silly hats and placed a suit of armor in the dining room "just for fun"; his father wrote jingles in addition to teaching music and directing the church choir. Hardesty's parents described him as sweet-natured, funny, and introverted. His parents withdrew him from his small Christian elementary school in second grade, fearing that the attending was too rigid for their son. Instead, he was home-schooled until middle school.

While at Baltimore Lutheran School, a teacher convinced Hardesty into acting in the school's theater productions, though he was too self-conscious to allow his family to attend his performances. He practiced his social skills while working as a cashier at Weis Markets, a nearby grocery store where he worked on weekends and after school.

In college, Hardesty majored in film, while making YouTube videos on the side. After attracting attention with his video, Strange Faces and Noises I Can Make III, a producer, Edwin Marshall, expressed interest in professionally representing Hardesty. The same video got national attention from a popular GEICO commercial in 2007 and 2008. In late 2007, Hardesty auditioned for a role in the film Bart Got a Room. Shortly thereafter, Beverly Strong of Strong Management took over as Hardesty's manager, and represents him to this day, along with Nic de Armendi of JLA Talent. Hardesty no longer resides in Los Angeles. He currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland where he makes videos for IMDb and his film / television commentary YouTube Channel "The Back Focus."
