Project Zorgo (now known as Project Zorgo V2) is a fake group that claims to be hackers which claims to be meant to patrol Google including YouTube, censoring any information or content unsuitable for it.
Project Zorgo has supposedly been trying to destroy YouTube and claim it as their own, because the Leader stated that YouTube has become too powerful and is a threat to traditional media. Project Zorgo hackers (PZ hackers) have been fictionaly known to attack other YouTubers and are targeting others, such as Guava Juice, MarMar(Marlin), and Ninja Kidz Tv.
Doomsday Date Events
NOTE: This is all fictional.
In the couple of months before the first Doomsday Date on November 3, 2018, a type of event where millions of YouTube channels will be hacked and will be locked out permanently or having all of their videos deleted, therefore shutting down YouTube, Project Zorgo posted the video about the decoding of the passcode to the Doomsday Date . Many YouTubers who were supporting Project Zorgo have solved the passcode of the Doomsday Date, in a form of a code CLOCKTOWER2018, and it was previously proven that it was scheduled to take place on November, but no actual day has come up. PZ Leader had given out his phone number in the new video (#702-907-0653) to find out the missing day of the Doomsday on Nov. 2018. The clue on the phone number consists of 5 things: Thomas Jefferson, New Jersey, Planet Earth, Leather and Gemini. On one video posted by PZ1/Daniel in his YouTube channel Exposing Project Zorgo, he did call PZ Leader's phone number and figured out the meaning of the clue and said that Thomas Jefferson is the 3rd president of the USA, New Jersey is the 3rd state to receive statehood to the USA on Dec. 18, 1787, Planet Earth is the 3rd Planet from the Sun in the Solar System, and he proved that it was November 3, 2018. Upon finding out about this clue, and especially the Project Zorgo members, it's YouTube supporters, including Shivraj Bannerjee, had decoded the passcode that Daniel did change before, Daniel had previously attempted to log in and try to change the passcode again, but it was already too late to do so, and he was locked out from the code to prevent further change. He went on to explain the situation before finding out the Doomsday Date, such as discovering the true, good intentions of Chad Wild Clay about making family-friendly videos, when Daniel saw a Craigslist ad about needing help from professional lie detectors to track down hackers, and the ad was signed by Chad Wild Clay, and after that, he wanted to warn Chad and Vy about Project Zorgo, but fearing for blowing up his cover, he began writing out written notes and clues on paper, and when he got to Chad and Vy's old house in Los Angeles, he placed his notes in random, and hidden places, as a way to communicate and warn them. Although his plan worked, he was caught by Project Zorgo, and as a result, he immediately quit Project Zorgo, and the hacking organization branded him as a traitor, and it was until 2019 when Daniel began to go undercover in Project Zorgo, for Chad and Vy to gather information.
On October 18, 2018, Project Zorgo has initiated the first test of the Doomsday Date, shutting down the majority of the website, with only it's Trending page spared from the attack. It was only successful for 1 hour and 2 minutes until YouTube was able to rectify the situation. In the video message posted on their own channel following the event, they stated that it was only a test, and claimed that a real one will occur, only this time, the software engineers will be unable to fix the situation.
Later, on November 3, 2018, in the last moment, before Doomsday Date would begin, Chad Wild Clay, Vy Qwaint, Daniel PZ1, and the targeted channels, and other supporters have stopped the Doomsday Date by typing the passcode that Vy Qwaint has discovered in PZ Headquarters. They were able to successfully destroy Project Zorgo's ability to shut down YouTube by typing Zorgo DIffuse in the comments section by over 1,000,000 times in many videos, which led to the subsequent plan of arresting Chad WIld Clay and framing Vy and Daniel for cybercrime, as retaliation from the PZ Leader.
1st Doomsday Date Duration: October 18–November 3, 2018.
In late-2020, Project Zorgo made a video announcing that they will shut down YouTube on December 25th after briefly shutting down Regina's YT channel, but was later rescheduled to take place on midnight in New Year's Eve for unknown reasons. Despite the alleged death of PZ9/Melvin (which was later turned out to be alive after rescuing them from Project Zorgo's Fighting Division during their near-failed attempt to retake the safe house), they were able to fight their way through and stop the YouTube shutdown.
2nd Doomsday Date Duration: November 13–December 31, 2020.
After the first Doomsday Date in 2018, of which many YouTubers, including the Spy Ninjas (Chad & Vy) Papa Jake, MarMar, Guava Juice, Carter, Liz, Stephen Sharer, Rebecca Zamolo, Kawaii Kunicorn, and Matt and Rebecca, were directly involved in this, almost all of them involved got back to their normal lives without interference from Project Zorgo. The Spy Ninjas however, was the only contender against Project Zorgo, having been infiltrating in PZ meetings and avoiding the FBI (which they later assisted the Spy Ninjas before the 2nd Doomsday) in an attempt to stop PZ from doing any activities, which subsequently, Melvin and Regina (PZ9 and PZ4 respectively; the two later defected to the Spy Ninjas) led the minions to take over the Spy Ninja's first safe house in Nevada as retaliation (the earlier one was the apartment in Los Angeles that was burned down during the earlier times in Project Zorgo). The conflict between the two factions (Spy Ninjas & Project Zorgo) lasted until December 31st, 2020, when they finally brought down the PZ Leader and had his channel terminated. As of 2021, the main Project Zorgo channel continued to exist to this day, albeit with no new uploads (unless otherwise noted or changed). But after this, Project Zorgo created a new channel going by the name of Project Zorgo V2.
- Project Zorgo is a completely false organization, which is proven by the description of their first video.
