About

Made by Jon Jafari, JonTron is a Youtube series where Jon reviews video games with his pet bird, Jacques. His series started on normalboots.com, which closed in 2012, but was reopened in 2014. His reviews are famous for being very random and comical, and sometimes randomly breaking into song. His Youtube channel, JonTronShow, has over 1,000,000 subscribers and over 1,000,000 views as of April 2014.

Origin

He started in August 2010 by posting his first video, a 2-parter titled “Daikatana Review”, on the sites Normalboots.com and Youtube. The two parts combined currently have over 1,000,000 views.

Since then he has been making many more game reviews and even movie and TV show reviews, all of which have become very popular.

Videos

His most popular video at the moment is his review of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. In this video, he talks about how the game ruined the franchise, while he acts as if there was a dramatic story line to the review. The video has over 3,000,000 views.

He has also reviewed a few infamous movies such as Birdemic, Foodfight and some episodes of the Goosebumps TV series. Another non-video game based review he did was of Jurassic Park: The Lost World. However, that review was only on normalboots.com, which can no longer be accessed. The only way it can be accessed is through here.

Game Grumps

Game Grumps is a Let’s Play channel he made where he plays games with Arin Hanson, also known as Egoraptor. As of April 2014, Game Grumps has almost 600,000 more subscribers than Jon’s main channel. However, since June 26, 2013, he has left Game Grumps to work on his main channel more. He was replaced by Danny of NinjaSexParty.

Reaction Faces

Jon is also popular on the Internet from his appearance in many reaction faces, most of which consist of snippets taken from his videos. Beside of reaction face images, these are also often used to threadjack threads on discussion sites like 4chan or Funnyjunk.
