Jordan Maron, better known as CaptainSparklez, first launched his YouTube channel around five years ago, with his first video uploaded in July 2010.
Many of Jordan’s earlier videos were focused on Call of Duty gameplay, but it wasn’t long until the entertainer’s attention switched to Minecraft.
One of CaptainSparklez earliest videos, ‘Minecraft: The Apocalypse’, has over 3 million views and shows the YouTuber setting off hundreds of TNT blocks to see the resulting destruction.
Jordan’s Minecraft content varies from Let’s Plays to SkyBlock challenges and Survival Games. He also occasionally plays other titles such as Garry’s Mod and Rockstar’s GTAV.
The most popular content on the CaptainSparklez channel are Jordan’s Minecraft-related music video. Fallen Kingdom, a Minecraft parody song, has over 90 million views and is one of the most watched Minecraft videos on YouTube. The song, based on Viva La Vida by Coldplay, was written and directed by CaptainSparklez and sung by TryhardNinja.
Previously, the most viewed video on the CaptainSparklez channel was Revenge, a Minecraft parody song sung to the tune of Usher’s ‘DJ Got Us Falling In Love Again’. The video had over 100 million views, however in April 2015 the video was made private along with another Minecraft song called TNT.
Due to mysterious reasons I haven’t even been made fully aware of, Revenge and TNT had to be privated on YouTube. A sad day. RIP.
