Early life[edit | edit source]
Jonathan Allen Harchick was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on January 16, 1989. Harchick produced and aided in projects for businesses at a very young age. In 2006, he shot educational videos with the Police Department. Videos by Harchick were than used in Videomaker's "Take 20" segments in 2007. In 2008, he went on to shoot and produce a documentary in Valparaiso, Chile.
Harchick went on to receive his B.F.A. in Media Arts at the Robert Morris University in 2011, majoring in video production and graphic design. He was heavily involved in projects taking place around campus. Harchick was a part of the staff for "Robert Morris University TV", serving as producer for entertainment segments and assistant producer for the sports segments.
Before receiving attention on the internet, Harchick produced several documentaries, developed iOS applications, and created graphic animations featured on television. He also contributed to "Dorosh Documentaries" — a company centered around documenting wedding ceremonies.
Projects[edit | edit source]
Harchick's original channel is known as "MoldytoasterMedia" and possesses a wide variety of low-quality videos. It is here that Harchick uploaded the longest YouTube videos to date, one of which exceeds 571 hours and includes a slideshow of his trip to Chile. Harchick hosts a variety of accounts, ranging from a YouTube channel devoted to himself eating carrots, to a channel hosting over five thousand videos of himself drinking water. One of his largest achievements lies within the series of videos he's uploaded to YouTube featuring himself counting to 100,000 – a feat only surpassed by Jeremy Harper in 2007 and YouTuber Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson in 2017 — a task which took Harchick 77 hours to complete. As of November 2017, his combined view count surpasses a million on over twenty channels. This is due to the thousands of videos he's uploaded to the website, and the hundreds of thousands of subscribers he has gained in return.
Non-related ventures include being a top-contributing Local Guide for Google Maps or taping his parents' home with six miles of tape, which he later revealed to be a hoax in a YouTube video.
Harchick has been noticed by other channels as well. For example, Harchick was mentioned in two videos by Vsauce. Later, Harchick was mentioned again by Vsauce at a Summer in the City event. Vsauce went on to say that the content of Harchick's “wouldn’t exist anywhere else”.
Harchick was also interviewed on Tosh.0 for his web-series called Let's Tape It. Additionally, YouTuber Jonathan Mann, Guinness World Record holder for the most songs ever written, wrote a song about the MoldytoasterMedia channel. Harchick was then given the opportunity to attend the YouTube Space in New York City, exclusive to YouTubers with over ten thousand subscribers.
