About Jordan Maron
Jordan Maron is an American gamer, electronic musician, Twitch streamer, and YouTube personality. Best known for his online alias “Captain Sparklez”, Jordan created his first YouTube channel in February 2010. For the past ten years, he has uploaded multiple reaction videos and gameplay of various games including Minecraft, Call of Duty, Fortnite, and Trials Fusion. As of now, his channel is the 437th most followed with over 11 million subscribers.
How Did Jordan Maron Get So Rich?
Apart from earning money from social media, this superstar is rich thanks to his sponsorship deals and merchandise. In the summer of 2010, he began posting videos on his now-first YouTube channel. The first videos he uploaded were titled “Your Captain is Speaking”, “Damn that was Sexy”, “It’s My Crack and I Need It Now”, and “Call of Duty and Science?”. One year later, he uploaded his very first music video titled “TNT”, a parody of Taio Cruz’s international hit “Dynamite”, which now has more than 112 million views.
In August 2011, Jordan published his second “Minecraft” music video called “Revenge”. The music video is a parody of Usher’s song “DJ Got Us Falling In Love”. As of now, the video is his most-watched and has accumulated 251 million views. From that video alone, he has earned himself more than $250.000. Throughout the next few years, he continued to release new music, most of which parodies based on popular songs such as “Gangnam Style”. That parody, called “Minecraft Style”, had more than a million views within a few days of its publishment. It was referenced in many gaming and technology articles by NBC, Huffington Post, The Daily Telegraph, and Mashable.
Why Is He So Famous?
Jordan Maron is famous for his gaming videos on YouTube and Twitch that have been seen by millions of viewers. He was born on February 10, 1992, in Los Angeles, California. He was raised primarily by his mother and the two moved to Santa Barbara when he was four years old. Beginning in ninth grade, he attended the Santa Barbara High School. He then went to the UCSB (University of California, Santa Barbara) where he studied chemical engineering and switched his major midway through his freshman year to computer science.
After dropping out during the first quarter of his sophomore year, in December 2011, he made YouTube his full-time job. As of now, he owns a total of nine channels on the video-sharing platform. The first was created in February 2010 under the nickname “ProsDontTalkShit”. On that channel, he primarily uploaded gameplay videos of Call of Duty games. After his channel became more popular, he decided to switch focus on a less vulgar game. In July 2010, his first channel became inactive and he created a new one titled “Captain Sparklez”, which he has been using since.
What Makes Him So Successful?
What makes this gamer so successful are his abilities to multi-task. Concurrently with uploading gameplay videos, he also released a lot of music, mostly remixes. Among some of the remixes that he produced are on the songs “Rockabye” by Clean Bandit, Sean Paul & Anne-Marie, “Saving Light” by Gareth Emery & Standerwick, and “Closer” by The Chainsmokers & Halsey. His music channel “Maron Music” was created in March 2016 and presently, it has 180,000 subscribers and more than 22 million views.
In the mid-2010s, he became a Twitch streamer that streams more than five videos per month. Around the same time, in 2015, in collaboration with Howard Marks (former CEO and co-founder of Activision), he started his own mobile gaming company titled “XREAL”. Their game “Fortress Fury” was released in May 2015 and within the first month of its launch, it received more than 1.5 million downloads. The short-lived company was closed abruptly in June after a cease and desist letter by ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks which is known for its Fallout series.
Jordan Maron is one of the premier gamers online. The YouTuber and Twitch streamer began his career just a decade ago and ever since, he has had nine channels on the video-sharing platform with the most triumphant being “Captain Sparklez”. This channel has 11.1 million subscribers and his 5,372 uploads have gathered a total of 3,7 billion views. Thanks to his large following online, electronic music, and thousands of diverse videos, Maron has earned himself more than $15 million.
