TOP OF THE MORNIN’ TO YA, LADDIES!
Sean McLoughlin has been going from strength to strength over the past 13 years. From his humble beginnings in Far Cry 3 gameplay without a face cam, to playing Deadpool with Deadpool himself (we’re still totes jealous), it’s been quite a journey and we’ve loved watching every moment of it. It’s hard to believe how much our favourite Irish gamer has achieved over the years – it makes us so proud! Don’t mind us while we wipe away these tears from our eyes…
Whilst we’re in self-isolation, we thought there was no better time to reminisce and look back at some of our favourite Jacksepticeye moments. What better way to keep us entertained all over again?
Positive Mental Attitude is not only synonymous with Sean’s channel, but given the current climate we think it’s a stronger vibe than ever. Sean explains that the idea behind the slogan came from not wanting to dwell on the negatives, but instead move forward with a “positive mental attitude” and keep repeating the slogan to stay in that frame of mind. It’s simplicity allowed the community to adopt it and it has since spread worldwide.
With its minimalistic design, it’s quintessentially Sean’s style and allows the message of PMA to be taken seriously. It’s also as authentic as its creator. PMA has had such a huge impact on the community, more so than Sean admits, we expect, and we strongly believe in it still!
Raising A LOT of money
Our love for Sean goes beyond his entertainment value. It’s cemented itself with the way he uses his platform to raise money for good causes! Over the past few years, he’s been involved in and hosted live streams to raise money for the Australian bushfires, #TeamTrees, Make-A-Wish, and Save The Children, just to name just a few.
His most recent campaign aims to raise money to help fight the COVID-19 crisis, and with this becoming such a team effort, Sean explains how he’s been reaching out to anyone with a platform to get involved and make a difference. “This is something that is very serious, something that affects every single one of us on the planet,” he passionately pleads in order to get people to come together, regardless of the size of their audience, and we couldn’t agree more!
THAT interview with Jack Black and Karen Gillan
Oh, yes, it’s not just Deadpool that our Sean’s hung out with!
This interview with Jumanji stars (and international treasures) Jack Black and Karen Gillan is still one of our favourite interviews in the history of interviews. Whether it’s Jack knowing who Sean is; discussing the correct pronunciation of nunchucks; Jack’s gaming channel, JablinskiGames; and dealing with anxiety, this is one of those arduous press tour interviews that feels genuinely fun and original. Sean’s interviewing style is becoming more comfortable with his experience and it’s so easy to come back to this one!
“My name is Connor”
If you’ve played Detroit, you’ll likely have fallen in love with Connor yourself – and it’s nice to know that Sean is still just like all of us!
His pure joy and interest in the character’s journey, the choices to be made and the performance became a big playthrough series for the channel. And we adore the meeting between Sean and Connor’s voice actor, Bryan Dechart – it’s adorably sweet, as well as offers us interesting insight into the character’s design. Also, can we talk about how wholesome Bryan gifting the Connor jacket was?

As if having not just one but three legs of an American tour was enough, Sean took his How Did We Get Here tour across the world at the end of 2018. Sean’s charm and engaging manner lends itself well to the stage. From telling anecdotes about his life and career, to interacting with his audience, it fits the jacksepticeye mould without feeling forced. We’d be surprised if he’s not planning to hit the road again anytime soon!
We sure do miss it…
Actor and presenter extraordinaire
Sean’s proven he’s able to turn his hand at anything and will give it his all to make the final product the best it can be. We’d like to see him tackle baking on The Great British Bake Off, but no matter what he chooses to try next we can’t wait to see it!
Forbes’ 30 under 30
Yesterday I was honoured to join the forbes 30 under 30 list. This is such a crazy club to be part of and I am eternally grateful for all the good that has come my way! Thank you.https://t.co/dPcMwXfu42

Making it onto this list is no small feat, especially now there are more and more influencers and creators to compete with, but it goes to show that Sean’s continuous hard work over the years is paying off, and not just financially. Recognition from a traditional media company, such as Forbes, not only highlights the work and rewards creators are achieving, but adds to it by giving the career a bit more legitimacy to anyone still doubting it.
So there you have it…
Just some of our most favourite moments! Obviously, there’s more we haven’t touched upon this time, but at the rate Sean’s going, we can see a sequel in the not-so-distance future. Now, we’re off to dye our hair a bright green!
