The Video Game Ref (partially found precursor channel to Chadtronic; 2013)
Chadtronic is a YouTube channel that makes Reaction videos, toy unboxings, and more. Before Chadtronic was created, he made a YouTube channel called, The Video Game Ref. The channel was a Let's Play channel that was taken down months later and made a new one called, Chadtronic.
Patreon Q/AOn September 28th of the same year, Chadtronic created a Special Patreon Q/A, where members of his Patreon asks Chad a question. Lane (the same guy who made his VGR video) asked him a question about his old channel.
"Saw a couple of you ask about this surprisingly. Video game ref was my YouTube channel before Chadtronic. It was nothing special really, it only had 2-3 videos on it, all of them basically being NES let’s play videos. The videos were absolutely terrible, nothing near the level of content I make today. You’re not missing out on anything trust me."
No videos or screenshots are available online outside of the removed channel. Only the theme song that was composed by Micheal Betz remains. Despite Chadtronic's claims, more than 2-3 videos were made. Most of them are Let's Plays of NES games.
