Shawn C. Phillips (born September 23, 1985), also known by his YouTube username coolduder, is an American YouTuber and indie horror film actor. On his YouTube channel he reviews movies/DVDs, does "around the town videos" and a series of comedy shorts called Don and Murph.

Early life[edit]

Phillips was born in Towson, Maryland.[1] During middle school, he and a friend, MJ Kelley, began making their own short films which they eventually uploaded onto YouTube.[2] Phillips attended Towson High School.[3]


Phillips joined YouTube on March 1, 2006 without the intention of presenting a coordinated series of videos. He started uploaded a series of comedic shorts called The Don and Murph Show with his friend and fellow YouTuber MJ Kelley reprising their characters in their skits. However, seeing a YouTuber proudly present his DVD collection inspired him to start his own DVD collection series.[4] As of September 2018, his channel currently has over 77,000 subscribers and over 27,000,000 views.[5]

Acting career[edit]

Phillips credits YouTube for starting his acting career. He was discovered on YouTube by a producer who enjoyed his work and later messaged him to ask if he could star in a movie he was producing called Assault of the Sasquatch. Since then, Phillips has starred in over 100 movies.[1]

Personal life[edit]

In 2014, Phillips was hospitalised and was told by doctors that he was going to die if he didn't lose weight. This caused him to undertake a healthy diet and an exercise programme until he lost over 250 pounds using his YouTube channel in order to document his journey.[4]
