Grant Thompson, "The King of Random," is something of a YouTube celebrity. With over 2 million subscribers, he posts weekly videos on life tips, survival techniques and fun science experiments. Despite his success on YouTube, he considers most of what he films weekend projects. He first started filming videos as a means of learning to produce high quality video and to archive cool experiments he's learned in hopes that his young children will one day want to duplicate them. 

Although he is highly prolific, he admits that many attempts end in failure before he is able to film a successful video. He likes to tweak cool tricks he has learned to improve upon them or put his own spin on them. This means that an idea may be toyed with for years before a video of it is finally released. When he isn't putting together these videos, he keeps busy running a business in real estate. And if that isn't enough, he is also an airline pilot.
