Chris Adcock frequently plays video games in his bedroom in South Lakeland. His games never go unnoticed.

Tens of thousands of people could end up watching.

Chris, also known as ChrisCredible, has his own YouTube channel and it is exploding. His videos have been watched more than 30 million times.

The channel has gotten so popular that national brand names like Uncle Ben’s Rice are advertising on it.

“I would never have thought that would have been a possibility,” Chris told FOX 13. “I think it is just amazing.”

Chris is not doing badly for a 14-year-old. He is now considered a YouTube brand and has been signed by an international talent agency. People are even stopping him on the street asking if he would take a picture with them.

We asked him if he is surprised when he is recognized.

“Definitely,” he said. “I never expected all this to happen.”

Chris has been online gaming and posting on YouTube since he was a little kid. Four years ago, he decided to start his own channel.

People watch it to see his strategy and hear his comments. One of his go-to games is Geometry Challenge. Although Chris considers himself a pretty good player, he says he is not the best.

“I like to think people are there to watch me for personality,” Chris commented. “To be honest, I am not really that good at the game that I play.”

Chris says when he is not producing new content, he is at Lakeland Montessori Middle School, or just being a normal kid.

When asked if he cleans his room, Chris' mom was quick to reply.

“No, he doesn’t,” said Rachel Adcock. “And his closet? You don’t want to go in there.”
