Game Grumps, a YouTube web series starring popular Internet personalities JonTron and Egoraptor, recently amassed over 18 million video views and nearly 200,000 subscribers in their two months of existence. Those are impressive numbers when you consider the show consists of the two playing old video games and essentially documenting all the random musings they have in relation to and outside of what’s happening on their television sets. If you’re still perplexed, give one episode a watch and I can guarantee your geeky tendencies and funny bone will have you checking YouTube daily for new episodes.

Essentially, Game Grumps was meant to be a platform for Egoraptor and JonTron, outspoken game enthusiasts, to share their insight on all things pertinent to gaming. Their natural inclination towards improvised humor, however, often derails the show into comedic gold territory. It’s simply difficult not to laugh at the charismatic duo.
