PsychicPebbles is the online handle of American artist and animator Zach Hadel, a YouTube and Newgrounds user known for his comedic Flash animation videos. His work typically parodies popular culture phenonema and contain elements of improv-style comedic sketches.
Zach Hadel began posting art online under the handle "PsychicPebble" on the flash website Newgrounds on April 22nd, 2008. However, he did not upload his first flash animation titled "Tribute to Tommy" until November of that year. That year, Hadel joined the the sites DeviantArt and YouTube for the first time. However, as of August 2012, both of these accounts are now empty. Despite its lack of videos, this early YouTube account has slightly over 1.1 million video views. During 2009 and 2010, Hadel uploaded fifteen different animations to Newgrounds. As of August 2012, he has earned 13 trophies on Newgrounds and is ranked at 9086 for uploads to the site.
Hadel began a Twitter account and Facebook fan page for his art in the spring of 2010 before starting a second YouTube channel on February 16th, 2011. Three days later, he uploaded his first video titled "How To Be a YouTube Famous Vblogger!!" The animation critiques the production methods and content of popular YouTube channels including Ray William Johnson and celebrity commentary vlog "What The Buck." As of August 2012, this video has accumulated over 1.3 million views.
PsychicPebbles is best known for his videos critiquing popular culture. At first, his YouTube account gained subscribers slowly, getting just under 50,000 before he posted an Arrow to the Knee parody cartoon (shown below, left) on December 29th, 2011. Over the next month, his subscriber count began to increase dramatically. As of August 2012, this video has more than 13 million views on YouTube and an additional 506,000 on Newgrounds, where it was selected as a Review Crew Pick as well as a Daily Feature and Weekly Users Choice. He saw another follower increase in late March 2012 after posting a video criticising KONY 2012 (shown below, right).
He has also done videos of games he admires, like "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" and named it Skyrim Is Epic.
Skyrim Is Epic 2 was made on April Fools Day (April 1st) and it was an April fool, involving the prequel--Earrape and mustaches.
In mid 2010, the channel "psychicpebble" was closed down by maker. People wondered why it was closed down, and PsychicPebbles told Eddsworld to request backup for his channel. A year later, the channel "PsychicPebbles" was opened and he had his videos in his computer he could import back. Right now, people are still wondering why it was closed down.
The reason why his account was closed down is because of copyright and over-the-limit NSFW content. As YouTube saw he had a lot of subscribers, Zack made a new account and YouTube accepted it to be okay.
