Chris O'Neill (born November 21, 1990), also known by his Internet pseudonym Oney or OneyNG (/ni/), is an Irish animator, voice actor, musician, video game designer, and YouTube personality.[1][2] He is well known for his animations on Newgrounds and YouTube,[3] being the co-founder and eponymous host of the YouTube Let's Play web series OneyPlays,[4][5][6] his upcoming video game Bowlbo: The Quest for Bing Bing,[7] and his animation work on the TV pilots for Hellbenders and Smiling Friends[8] and the Bushworld Adventures special for Rick and Morty on Adult Swim.[2]


In 2013, Chris O'Neill's animation YouTube channel was ranked as Ireland's most successful YouTube channel with a total of 240 million views at the time.[1] The channel's animation content included his original series Leo and Satan, videos parodying "nerd media" such as Harry Potter, Final Fantasy 7, and Dragon Ball Z, and the series Hellbenders, the lattermost of which he made in collaboration with fellow Newgrounds animator Zach Hadel.[9]

In 2014, O’Neill began posting Let's Play video content to the Oney's Video Hole channel, renamed OneyPlays. The channel became prominent in 2017 for starting the Crash Bandicoot "Woah" internet meme based on a common sound-effect from the classic PlayStation series,[10] spawning many song parodies and animations, including one where Crash is inserted into the anime Attack on Titan.[11] The meme also reappeared as an easter egg in the 2020 video-game Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.[5] Typically featuring co-hosts, the channel initially included the duo Ding Dong & Julian, later including other animators and internet personalities such as Zach Hadel, Joshua Tomar, and Lyle Rath, as well as guests such as Matt Watson and Ryan Magee of SuperMega, and Jon Jafari and Arin Hanson of the original Game Grumps,[12] although O'Neill and Hanson had a public falling-out via Twitter in 2019.[3]

In 2019, O’Neill created the game studio OneyWare and announced development on the studio’s first game, Bowlbó: The Quest for Bing Bing. The game centers on a boy named Bowlbó on a mission to save his "poochingus" Bing Bing from an evil witch. No release date has been stated.[7][13]
