The Origin Story

Maybe this would have been appropriate two articles ago but guess what's even better? Telling you how it all started after three articles. Could you imagine if the third entry in a superhero trilogy was the origin story? Like Superman overcomes Brainiac in the first, gets defeated by and rises from Doomsday's attack in the sequel, and then comes to planet earth in the third installment? (Take notes DCEU!) Well, look no further, because that's the way it's going down in this one. In this article I'm going to talk to you about how and why we got into content creation on Instagram as @KChase_Hunter and it's all because of our very own kid named Clark!

Screep Cap From Clark's First Play-Doh Video

From Clark's very first viewing of a YouTube video, he was hooked! It all started with Play-Doh surprise egg videos. Now, if you don't know, that is just Easter eggs filled with Play-Doh, with toys inside of the middle. Of course, they find ways to spice up the individual videos. Mostly with annoying voices or different and easy games to play. I'd say the earliest he wanted to make his own videos was as early as two years old. Clark picked up talking fairly well, likely due to spending lots of time with his older cousins and wanting to communicate with the older kids. You can find an old recording uploaded to our IGTV Channel from about a year before we started creating content. I'm personally most impressed with his ability to name every superhero on the tubs of Play-Doh.

Now, I know this may seem a bit over dramatic but I strive to be the type of parent who

makes sure that anything my son wants to do seems possible. He has set such huge goals and doesn't even know it. He strives to have the things that he sees other YouTubers and content creators have such as their own toy lines, sponsorship deals, etc. He certainly, at five years old, has no clue what that takes to achieve but that keeps the fun in it for him. He's not pressured when a video gets 10 views instead of 10,000 and I plan to keep it that way. However, if for any reason it did take off, I just want him to understand that anything he wants to achieve in life is possible with the right focus, direction, and dedication to his goal.

Luckily, I've got a wife and partner in life that can find the joy in all of this craziness even
