Channel Awesome YouTube
June 18th, 2008
Channel Awesome YouTube was created by Welshy and was started as an attempt to promote videos for TGWTG.com. Namely, the videos produced by ThatGuyWithTheGlasses himself. Being a fan of both The Nerd and Doug, Welshy created the channel with its name to specifically identify that he wasn't Doug or James, just a fan, and soon after posted a few of the Critics videos. Eventually, he started creating trailers for Doug's work and from there, trailers for other members of the Channel Awesome team. Mike Michaud became aware of these activities and, on the April 5th, 2009 edition of Transmission Awesome, Welshy was named the official channel and the CEO of the company told listeners that he was the only one who was going to be official.
Since then, Welshy has created several trailers on a daily basis and after a short break away from the site and the channel, Welshy chaged the format, created one trailer a day, advertising all the releases and has a running commentary with the people who post in his channel and his videos. Taking it in stride, Welshy jokes with the viewers and sometimes explains who he is, usually in a form of exaggeration to keep people wondering and, sometimes, to annoy them. An example of this is when Welshy announced he loved Twilight, claiming it was far better than Equilibrium.

Welshy vs Conker
In the .... trailer, Welshy claimed Conker was his hero, but in the following trailer, which featured an appearance from Conker, Welshy shot and killed him. Conker returned the next day and after jointly hosting the trailer, Welshy again shot Conker, only for Conker to regenerate after the trailer had finished. The following day Conker visited Welshy and killed him and then took over the trailers, hosting the ... trailer. At the end however, Welshy returned and absorbed Conker into his Welsh collective. Since that trailer Conker hasn’t been seen, but the channel viewers have all been questioning his return.
