Professional Career

In 2003, Jafari registered on Newgrounds as “BirdmanXZ6” and posted five cartoons showing anthropomorphic onions. He created a YouTube account with the same name in 2006. In 2010, Jafari started uploading videos to, where he reviewed games like GoldenEye 007 and met the game’s designer, Austin “PeanutButterGamer” Hargrave.

On August 31, 2010, Jafari launched the JonTronShow YouTube channel. He explained that the name JonTron was chosen because it was “reminiscent of technology,” similar to Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and that the show was initially titled JonTron 2.0. Jafari analyzes single games as well as games with a certain topic, series, or genre in each episode of JonTron.

His green-cheeked parakeet, Jacques, who speaks in a robotic voice, is frequently around him. In order to show his reactions to the video game he is reviewing, Jafari frequently mixes aspects of sketch humour into these episodes. Jacques was initially supposed to speak in a stereotypical jive voice, with Jafari’s lips superimposed over the character’s face rather than his eyes blazing red every time he talked, according to Jafari in an episode of the Internet gaming webseries Game Grumps.

Jafari has written reviews for a number of prominent brands, including Hercules, Barbie, Home Alone, and Conan the Barbarian. He’s also evaluated a number of unauthorized games, including those based on the Pokémon property and Disney films. In the latter, he noted that China is “far away from US law and considerably better at Disney bootlegging,” as well as unauthorized internet games based on the studio’s films. Jafari also posts sketches and movie reviews from time to time.

Normal Boots was founded in late 2010 by Jafari and Austin “PeanutButterGamer” Hargrave as a centre for them to submit content and earn money from advertisements. Normal Boots quickly expanded its line-up of programming to include Did You Know Gaming?, The Completionist, Indie Games Searchlight, and Continue? In 2012, the site was shut down because Google’s AdSense program provided better cash opportunities for content providers.

Jafari first encountered animator Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson, whom he had admired since the early 2000s, when he messaged him on YouTube immediately after his DinoCity review went viral. After becoming close friends, Jafari and Hanson announced in July 2012 that they would be launching a Let’s Play series called Game Grumps on both of their YouTube accounts. Jafari and Hanson released their first Game Grumps serials on July 18, the same year: Kirby Super Star, Mega Man 7, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.


Jafari was named as one of CraveOnline’s “7 Awesome YouTube Gamers You Should Watch” in 2013. “Mixing a huge dose of quirky comedy with a light sprinkling of intelligent analysis, JonTron’s reviews of old games have spawned numerous imitators, but none have proven to be more entertaining,” writer Paul Tamburro said. According to Time magazine, JonTron was the ninth most searched Internet meme on Google in 2015.
