Ethan Samuel Harbors[1] (born October 31, 1998 (1998-10-31) [age 20]), better known online as SammyClassicSonicFan (or Sammy Zenith), is an American YouTuber, best known for his certain rants on videos and games. He currently lives in Indianapolis, Indiana in his college dorm room, and is known on YouTube after numerous reboots as The Imperishable Sammy Zenith!.

In his previous YouTube days, Samuel has been widely criticized for his behavior which he allegedly "ripped off" from a user named "mariotehplumber". At times, he even went as far as to start to destroy his room in his videos. At first, he was not known for the first few videos by many. Eventually, he uploaded a video called "Stop Hating on Sonic".

His old videos are recovered from a channel named "The SammyClassicSonicFan Archive".[2]

Sammy was born on Halloween of 1998. He once got Sonic Mega Collection for a Nintendo Gamecube and a Nintendo Wii, which sparked his interests in the franchise ever since. He is a big fan of Sonic, Dragon Ball Z, and all things Nintendo. He attended Hamilton Southeastern High School and has autism, as mentioned in one of his old videos.

Under the username SammyClassicSonicFan, Sammy published many rants on YouTube and unwittingly became a viral sensation. This resulted in unwarranted attention online as well as at school. This led to his online schooling and his eventual depression. He currently attends Purdue University as a member of the Class of 2021.
