Gary Gabagool, better known online as Omegle Pete (formerly Pervert Pete and ALilCrankCrank), is an American YouTube character who goes on video chat sites such as Omegle and Chatroulette and tries to make new friends. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not but it always ends in some sort of high jinks in the end. Pervert Pete is a make-believe character played and created by Comedian Gary Gabagool. Everything you see in all his videos is for comedic purposes only.
Pervert Pete started his original channel on January 25, 2013 using the channel name: aLiLCrankCrank that only focused on Omegle videos. As time went on, Pervert Pete would get into gaming videos. In May of 2013, he made a video, "Omegle Girls Show Boobs" which quickly became his top viewed video and helped his channel grow, sometime averaging over 100 new subscribers per day. Later that year, he met another YouTuber, MarioTv and the two quickly became friends but ironically, only collaborating once.
Ariane And Wiener Videos
In early 2014, he began a series, that has often been copied by other YouTubers called: :Pervert Shows His Wiener To Girls On Omegle" which quickly became his most popular series to hard core fans. With each new wiener prank came a slue of new dedicated fans.
Soon after he began a new series with the first video entitled: "Pervert Fails At Dating Hot Girl". The video garnered over a million views overall. The series itself became his most popular series of all time, with each video quickly gaining hundreds of thousands of views within weeks of upload. This further excelled his subscriber count, now averaging a hundred subscribers per day.
Later in 2014 as his channel continued to grow, he met YouTuber AsKaGangsta who also made YouTube videos. The two quickly became friends and not long after, began collaborating on a series of videos called: WienerBoyz" where the two would show their 'wieners' to people on Omegle. The collaborations with AsKa propelled Pervert Pete into YouTube infamy as being recognized by YouTube viewers who weren't even fans.
The Slenderman Video
During this time, he put out a video featuring YouTubers Makemebad35 and Pinkstylist, which he met while filming an Omegle that he titled: "Pervert Pete vs Slenderman".
The Slenderman video garnered Pervert Pete attention from the masses by being a Makemebad35 video. New fans were coming in left and right, this was the golden age of the Pervert Pete channel.
Pervert Pete Goes Into Hiding
On May 18, 2016 Pervert Pete's YouTube was blacked out and all videos were removed. due to a court threatening Pete that they would take his daughter unless he quit the Pervert Pete persona on YouTube. On May 27, 2016 the character was officially 'killed off'. At this time Pervert Pete was embraced by his YouTuber friends and colleges, with many doing tributes to Pervert Pete and even the YouTube drama news channel, Scarce running a story about the incident. Thanks to the many tributes, stories and mostly thanks to his friend AsKaGangsta, Pervert Pete was able to get his channel to well over 107,000 subscribers, even after his being killed off to be able to get the YouTube Silver Play Button.
The Gary Gabagool Era
During the next year, the channel was headed by Gary Gabagool, Pervert Pete's creator. At first, Gary Gabagool wasn't sure how to go about the situation. He settled on doing a face reveal and taking over the character as the over the top New Jersey born, Gary Gabagool who is an over the top version of his real life self. He continued to make Omegle videos, vlogs, rants and playing games but he just never felt right about doing this on Pervert Pete's channel. He was never fully able to become what he should have, thanks to being afraid of doing anything to disrupt the court case. His rant videos became his most successful.
On May 18, 2017, almost a year after having to "Kill off" Pervert Pete, Gary announced that the character was able to return to YouTube. It was explained that Pervert Pete had to go "into hiding" due to some legal issues and is aloud to come back thanks to an agreement with the court. The day the character returned, 47 of Pete's videos where made public once again on the channel (including all Dating Ariane videos and all gaming videos). All Omegle videos were deleted, due to them being the reason why Pervert Pete was killed off in the first place. Over time, Gary re-edited them as compilations on his channel (as Retro Pete).
Gary Gabagool moved over to his own new channel so Pervert Pete was all back to normal on his channel, with only him uploading his own videos.
At this time, The First Adpocalypse had already hit. With the combination of that and Pervert Pete being gone for a year, his channel was taking a huge hit view wise and fan wise. Most of the fans had already left the channel, with only the most hardcore fans (most who are still with Pete to this day) still subscribed to Pervert Pete. Pervert Pete still put out new videos but it wasn't the same. Even though Pervert Pete was able to come back, he was still afraid to go all the way with how he used to act, so he was more timid and more low key. So with all those combined factors, Pervert Pete's channel was in a decline.
In early 2019, Pete's channel started to get traction, thanks to his new series: "Hentai or Die" where he would play hentai games by his new sponsor, Nutaku Games. His videos were finally getting into some searches and related videos, which boosted his channel significantly for the first time since 2016. New fans started to flock to his channel, most unaware of what had happened in 2016. Pete was ACTUALLY BACK now.
The End Of Pervert Pete
In May 2019, YouTube officially terminated the ALilCrankCrank Pervert Pete YouTube channel due to what they claim as, violence violations. It was obviously terminated due to the new unspoken rules created by YouTube for the AdPocalypse 2.0. In the end, the channel peaked with over 107,000 subscribers and just under 10 million views
The Pervert Pete Show Comeback
With the channel gone, Gary Gabagool wasn't sure what to do with Pervert Pete. At first, Pervert Pete would upload videos on Gary Gabagool's channel. Then after a few months, Pervert Pete got his own channel called: The Pervert Pete Show. At first, it was thought that Pervert Pete would do his own podcast, but with limited time to record, produce and edit, that was not possible. So it was decided that the new channel would be used to upload all the classic Pervert Pete videos, with new content to follow. It was also at this time that Pervert Pete created his own website ChurchOfSookie.com that was to be a place that could never be taken away. It would host all the classic Pervert Pete videos plus new and uncensored videos. A place where Pervert Pete could spread his wiener like never before.
