John Morin (born March 24, 1999), known also as ZexyZek or Zek, is an American Gaming YouTuber. He has over a million subscribers and is best known for his trolling videos. John started creating videos at the age of 9. He lived in New Hampshire when he first started doing his videos.
In March 2014, John noticed a mention of trolling in the EULA and contacted Mojang, who replied informing him that trolling is not permitted. He released a video (currently private) explaining that his trolling had to stop, to which his fans responded to by complaining to the developers. Minecraft Dev "Notch" saw that in his videos, John repays those he has trolled, and gave him permission to continue creating this content. Notch has since then deleted his blog, moving to a new one, and John's post was deleted.
In May 2015, John uploaded a video that his parents have split and is using an apartment he rented as a studio, so he can stay with his mother and use a PC and stay with his father and use his normal Mac.
On the 19th of December 2015, he announced that he would be moving all of his gaming videos, including trolling, onto one of his other accounts called ZexyZekPlays because he thought his videos were getting boring and having skits and vlogs on the same channel was getting confusion.
On April 5th, 2016, John announced that he would be ending Minecraft Trolling due to no interest in making them.
