Saman "Sam" Rajabian (born: February 20, 1997YouTuber that makes Minecraft machinimas and skits. His channel is known for making "If _____ were in Minecraft", where he depicts strange and unusual things being added to Minecraft.), better known online as ExplodingTNT, is a Canadian
When TNT first started, he made videos about various things in Minecraft exploding, hence the name "ExplodingTNT." Eventually, he decided to change the primary focus of his channel to making the Minecraft machinimas he still makes today. These machinimas typically start with If, Why, or How, and follow various comedic scenes revolving around the concept described in the video. In late 2015, ExplodingTNT's machinimas began to grow more in-depth, with a more organized plot line, title, and character development. He is one side of a long-standing feud between him and Pink Sheep who has his own channel.
He also created the characters Pink Sheep, an arrogant sheep with a moustache, and Purple Shep, a purple, more goofy version of Pink Sheep, who is addicted to toasters. Both of these accounts are owned and operated by ExplodingTNT.
A recent Q&A video promised a voice to reveal at 5 million subscribers and a face reveal at 10 million subscribers. The controversial goal has led to a petition being created on Change.org. About a week after reaching 5 million subscribers, he released his voice reveal video.
In a video published on 26 January 2020, he has announced he will be taking a break from YouTube. He returned to YouTube by uploading a video on 13 February 2021, more than a year since his break started.
Several of TNT's videos have cameos from other Minecraft YouTubers, such as SkyDoesMinecraft, JeromeASF, DanTDM, Failboat, and others, but it is unlikely these are actually them. He has collaborated with other YouTubers before, such as his current best friends GameplayerHD, Failboat, AdamRodriguezGames, and many others. Much like ItsJerryAndHarry, Most of his machinimas feature characters talking with text over their head, but he has used voice actors as well, such as AdamRodriguezGames.
He also owns Minecraft minigame servers with GameplayerHD, called MCOrigins and The Nova, although MCOrigins has shut down as of August 2019. Some world files were made available for the public to download following the closure. The two servers were both featured in some of his videos, He also has a second channel entitled TheTNTExploders. He currently has over 5 million subscribers, making him one of the most popular Minecraft machinima makers. He always likes to make his subscribers laugh every video, and has become a hero to several people worldwide.
Minecraft and Roblox are both very popular games that are similar in many ways, but ExplodingTNT has never played it. After getting many requests, ExplodingTNT finally decides to play a game of Roblox with the help of Pink Sheep.
He has seen a lot of new players and noobs play Minecraft but he was pretty new to Roblox. TNT tried to play Roblox Jailbreak with the help of Pink Sheep, but his morality led to him quitting after he robbed a single gas station in game.
ExplodingTNT has Fortnite on his own channel and played with Pink Sheep on his. However, he is not good at the game. "I mean, fam, he tried getting a drink from the vending machine." - Pink Sheep.
After some negative feedback from his fans for playing Fortnite on his main channel, his friend decided to create a new channel called "ExplodingTomato", which is a channel that his friend created for Fortnite skits only. He announces he may be doing some machinimas on Fortnite as well.
- Due to his loving of cheese, he is a mouse. It all started with the first weird comment video where it explained how this "he's a Mouse" thing started.
- His skin is the first result when one searches for "Minecraft YouTuber Girl Skins" on Google. This has led to many people thinking that TNT is actually a female. Pink Sheep showed this during TNT's second Q and A video where a person asked if TNT is a girl. He denied it, saying that he thought it was obvious that he was a boy, but Pink Sheep showed him search results that said otherwise.
- He has published a book called ExplodingTNT vs Everything.
