He is known for making videos based around the holiday Halloween. He collects animated animatronic Halloween decorations that consists of spooky phrases, movements, and sounds from a Halloween retailer known as Spirit Halloween. These animatronics can range from $100 to $500. He has over 70 of these animated decorations, some he keeps out and some he puts in storage due to lack of space or being faulty. He is well known for his series titled "Smoldering Reviews" in which he reviews these animatronics and other Halloween decorations. There are currently 200 episodes of that series. He also does some skits, live streams occasionally, and has done many other mini series and other random videos.), better known online as Bradeyland, is an American
2013 - 2015
Bradey created his YouTube channel on June 24, 2013 at a young age. He was not sure what his channel was going to be about but he just wanted to be on YouTube as he had watched it for a while. He picked the name Bradeyland because he wanted to make his channel about everything that he liked and enjoyed. He was thinking of his channel being like his "land" filled with everything he likes. During 2013 and 2014 he uploaded random videos of him gaming, collection videos, and home videos from 2011. It wasn't until the summer of 2015 when he started to upload Halloween content. He began to chat with other Halloween YouTubers and uploading content more frequently and consistently. He began his well known series "Smoldering Reviews" in August of 2015. He did many other types of Halloween videos throughout the end of 2015 including Online Halloween Prop Reviews, Top 10s, and videos touring the Halloween section of stores. During this time he also did a few pranks and played Minecraft. He would also just upload any video he could think of or any idea that he thought was good. Throughout this time all of his Halloween decorations remained in his spare bedroom. This room was always empty up until Bradey began to use it as a space for his Halloween decorations in 2012. He began calling it the Halloween room and it slowly got more full throughout 2013, 2014, and 2015.
2016 - 2017
During 2016 Bradey continued to upload Halloween content and started multiple new series. One of these series was called Plush Movies in which he would make videos with plushies and puppets in the style of SuperMarioLogan. These videos often included a LambChop puppet and a Grumpy Cat plushie. When new decorations started coming out he did videos talking about them as they came out. Due to lack of space in the Halloween room Bradey moved all of his animatronic decorations out of the spare room and into his garage, making the spare room a lounge room with a couch, a TV, a table, and shelves that had Funko Pops, books, and box-sets on it, and the garage a new Halloween garage. When Halloween stores began opening he did videos touring them. He also began a series titled "The Crazy Kid Series" in which he plays a crazy kid that gets angry easily. There are currently 20 episodes and he destroys multiple items and gets angry at his mom for always recording him. In one episode Bradey steals a golf cart and in another Bradey submerges a camera in water. At first some believed this to be real but he confirmed them to be skits. In 2017 he really began to upload consistently and began to purchase more decorations to review. During the times where nothing new Halloween related was happening he would upload skits, upload random videos, start new series, or go live in a series he called "Bradeyland Live". He uploaded videos of him talking, telling stories, or giving updates and In May of 2017 he dyed his hair a teal color toward the front. He also began doing "Halloween Parties" where he would activate a handful of his animatronics at once in loud chaos. These parties last from 10 to 30 minutes.
2018 - 2019
In 2018 he continued to do his usual Halloween videos, skits, live streams, updates, and more. His channel really started to do well in 2018 and he slowly gained more subscribers. 2018 was the first year where he really got a lot of animatronics, beating his past record and getting more than he ever has. 2018 is currently the year that he got the most animatronics. In 2019 he began a mini Halloween games series in which he slowly eliminated Halloween animatronics in a certain group in a series until he had a winner. He has done this ten times with ten different types of animatronic decorations. These series have lasted from one week to one whole month. The longest one was titled "The Mega Games" and consisted of every animatronic that he owns. That series began on May 11, 2019 and ended on June 30, 2019. There are 116 episodes of these series total. Each series is called "The ____ Games" the blank being filled in with whatever type of animatronic it is, for example clown or zombie. In 2019 he uploaded his most videos and purchased the most decorations to review. He got a lot of animatronics in 2019 but just missed his record in 2018. This means that 2018 still remains as the year that Bradey purchased his most animatronics. He purchased 18 that year and only 13 in 2019. He began doing edited demo videos for all of the animatronics he purchased and did four store tours of Spirit Halloween, where he gets most of his animatronics. This is the most videos that he has ever had to do during a Halloween season despite buying less animatronics than 2018. He also continued to do live streams and upload skits throughout the end of 2019.
In 2020 Bradey did more Smoldering Reviews, live streams, and Halloween prop parties. Towards the end of 2019 but mainly at the beginning of 2020 Bradey did many Smoldering Reviews on props and items he had that he had not previously done one on. He said his goal was to "Do a Smoldering Review on everything that was accessible to him". This means he wouldn't dig in the attic, where he stores animatronics not in use, to do a review and that he would only do one on things that were easily accessible. He also began a new series called "Prop Battles". In each episode two of his animatronics would be put against each other and it was up to his subscribes to vote in the comments on which one was better. He listed the first 21 episodes as season 1 and planned to do a season 2 and 3 but after the tenth episode it was canceled. In May of 2020 he decided to put about 20 of his animatronic decorations away. He would then leave about 15 out in the garage and move 15 back into the spare bedroom transferring it from a lounge room back into his Halloween room. The Halloween room was filled with animatronics and other horror items and the garage was cleaner although it still had Halloween decorations in it. He also began a mini series titled "Quick Updates" in which he would quickly give an update about his channel, his animatronics, or something else Halloween related in a short video. On June 26, 2020 he began his yearly sneak peak series for 2020 as Spirit Halloween released their first seasonal sneak peak. He continued to do demo videos and Smoldering Reviews on the animatronics that he purchased that year. He rearranged the Halloween room to where 90% of it was just his clown animatronics. In fact there are only two animatronics in that room that are not a clown animatronic. The rest of the animatronics that he got in 2020 where put in his garage.
Bradey began his most popular series "Smoldering Reviews" on August 5, 2015 with the first episode where he reviewed a zombie squirrel prop. He uploaded even more episodes in 2016 and really began consistently making them in 2017. Now as of 2020 he has over 200 episodes. Some of the episodes from 2015 are only 1 minute or under a minute long but the newer ones range from 5 to 10 minutes each. In these videos he reviews animatronics/props that he has or got during that year and usually talks about their details, explains the setup process, gives a rating, or does a demo if necessary. Every decoration or animated prop that he owns has it's own "Smoldering Review". He usually makes the reviews as he purchases animatronics during the Halloween season. During the off-season he usually uploads Smoldering Reviews on items that he has had for awhile but never got around to doing a review on. The name came from an animatronic that was released at the time Bradey was creating this series. It was a smoldering zombie that lit up like it was burning. It groaned and moved from side to side and was capable to be hooked up to a fog machine. In late 2019 and early 2020 Bradey began a mission to do a review on everything in his Halloween garage. He has completed that task with the exception of a few items he may find or get out if the attic. The series has gotten a wide range of support from his subscribers and this is his 6th year of doing it. He doesn't plan to stop anytime soon.
On October 29th of 2019 Bradey's channel mysteriously blew up. His video titled "Deans Party Mania Halloween 2019" began to gain views quickly and his subscribers increased quickly. That video is now his most popular with over 13 million views. He hit 10,000 subscribers on November 2, 2019 and not even a month later he hit 20,000 on December 1, 2019. He then hit 30,000 on January 18, 2020 and just recently hit 40,000 on May 26, 2020. It is believed that he may have gotten a shoutout or the video shared by a popular account. In the rise of his subscribers he made his milestone videos a series titled "Up By The 10,000s". The first video was just a 2 minute video saying thank you for 10,000 subscribers. However the second and third videos where 30 minutes live stream thanking his subscribers for 20,000 and 30,000. The fourth video was another video that is 8 minutes long saying thank you for 40,000 subscribers. By June of 2020 the boost slowed down but the numbers still continue to climb faster than before. It is still mysterious how Bradey's channel gained so much popularity in such a short time but Bradey has made it clear how grateful and thankful he is for his subscribers.
Sneak Peek Videos and Store Tours
Each year Spirit Halloween, the Halloween retailer company that Bradey gets the majority of his Halloween animatronic decorations from, releases sneak peek videos in which they preview a Halloween animatronic they sell that year. These sneak peeks usually occur in the month of July as stores begin to open in August. Bradey does videos covering each animatronic as they come out. He gives his thoughts them and goes into the detail of them. As the stores open he will do multiple store tours through Spirit Halloween. Each year Spirit Halloween has two new themes. With each theme comes a display. For instance in 2019 they had a boat theme. Each year there is a theme in the front of the store (by the entrance) and one in the back. Throughout August, September, and October Bradey does multiple tours through Spirit Halloween and does Smoldering Review videos on the animatronics that he purchases. Bradey also does tours of the Halloween section of other stores such as Walmart, Target, Big Lots, CVS, and much more.
Online Reviews was a series that was started by Bradeyland in July of 2015. It was his first series that gained popularity. In each video he reviewed a Halloween animatronic online. He would read the description of the animatronic, look at the pictures, discuss the price, discuss the look, and more. He usually did this with animatronics he did not own. Many of his earlier subscribes really enjoyed this series and even asked him if they could do one of their own like it. There was only about 15 episodes of the series but they were his most popular at the time. He was going to continue the series but it ended in August of 2015 as a result of his series "Smoldering Reviews" gaining more popularity. Smoldering Reviews beat out Online Reviews and every other series Bradey had made at the time. It still holds the spot as Bradey's most popular series with over 200 episodes. The old episodes are still enjoyed and watched occasionally by subscribers today.
Other Short & Canceled Series
Besides Online Reviews, Bradey has done many other series that only lasted a few episodes due to them being canceled, forgotten, or Bradey loosing interest in them. Examples of this are Year Reviews, Props Having Conversations, Horror Character Reviews, and many others. In the series Year Reviews Bradey reviewed and rated a year of Halloween animatronic decorations from the retailer Spirit Halloween. This included the animatronics they released that year as well as the themes that the animatronic were placed in at stores. This series was canceled after the second episode. In the series Props Having Conversations Bradey would use a text to voice program and a video editor to edit voices of teaser videos of Halloween animatronics from Spirit Halloween. This would give the effect that the animatronics were talking. He would make multiple animatronics talk and have silly conversations with each other. This only lasted one episode and was canceled. In the series Horror Character Review Bradey would review classic horror villains from classic horror movies. His first and last episode was on the character Michael Myers from the Halloween movies. In the video he gave rating on certain details about the character. The series was canceled after it's first episode. Bradey has started many series that he had ended up canceling but also does plenty of series that he pursues.
On May 7, 2020 Bradey uploaded a teaser video for his short film "Paranormal Activity", the same name as the 2007 film. It was planned to be released on May 10, 2020 although all of the teasers were removed from YouTube and so were the promotional posts on Instagram. The plot is based around the 2007 film of the same name as Bradey is experiencing explainable happenings in the garage where his animatronic decorations are kept. He sets up a camera each night as no one believes him and thinks he is lying or over exaggerating. In this film we see the progress of the activity all the way up to the end when it becomes chaotic. Due to the deletion of evidence of the project no one was sure if the film would ever be finished and or released. However on May 26, 2020 he confirmed the project was scraped.
