Before he launched his current YouTube channel, UrinatingTree was known as the Fat Mann Judgeth, who covered old video games on his first channel – these games were mostly played on the Sega Genesis console.
He was also creating a comedy gaming series – “Half-Assed Theater” – and after three years of uploading content and becoming somewhat popular on YouTube, UrinatingTree disappeared without a trace before coming back in 2010 with his brand new channel.
UrinatingTree usually puts his videos in one of the following categories: “Lolcows in Sports” which is about the lowlights of basketball and hockey teams, the ‘(Team Name): Professional (Sport played)’s (insulting nickname)’ in which he talks about the members and statistics of a team that has done poorly in several seasons, and ‘A Legacy of Failure’ which is about one team’s inability to win any championships.
Other than his three main series, UrinatingTree has a plethora of others:
- ‘The Haters Guide’ which follows the most important events in a sport such as the start of a season or the finals of a championships;
- ‘Congrats, (Team Name)’ series, in which he mocks sport teams which have recently lost a game;
- ‘This Week in Sportsball’ which has three subcategories: ‘Days Of Our Steelers’ which is only about the team Pittsburgh Steelers, ‘Sacksonville Abbey’ which is about the Jacksonville Jaguars, and ‘Raiders of the Lost Season / D.I.V.A’ which is about Antonio Brown who is playing for the Oakland Raiders (after having played for the Steelers for multiple seasons);
- ‘Revisiting…’ which is about some of his former videos, how these were created and what happened after their creation;
