Nick (born: January 23, 1989 (1989-01-23) [age 30]), better known online as Sp00nerism, formerly TheCampingTree, is a YouTube let's play commentator and Machinima director. He is part of The Creatures, a group of commentators who create content together on their own channels and on TheCreatureHub . He is known for his childish sense of humor and mysterious attitude towards his identity. Before 2013, No one outside of The Creatures knew what he looked like besides his family, friends, and girlfriend. Sp00n had always been reluctant at showing his identity to people for a very unknown reason and would block people from places like twitter if they would ask him to reveal himself. Finally, when the creatures had gotten their first ever panel at the Rooster Teeth Convention(RTX) in July, 2013, sp00n revealed himself. Link to the video of this happening can be found here: (Here).


We don't know much about Sp00n, except that he currently lives in Colorado and he is an agnostic. Also, he is 30 years old. He is currently dating VDUBali. The Two moved into an apartment in Colorado near the creature house, in January 2013. In April 2014 he posted an update video talking about how he was going to move to Utah. The reason stated was because Colorado was to expensive. He also stated that nothing was wrong between him and the rest of the creatures.


Sp00n started his YouTube career by making machinimas, but most were deleted due to copyright issues. He said the reason he started doing this was because he lived around video games and enjoyed them. They were times when Sp00n would not post anything for months and maybe even years. Sp00n then got into gaming commentary.

Sp00n introduced Nova to most of the Creatures by inviting him to a Skype call after Sp00n kept on annoying Nova about a Halo Reach Avatar Accessory that Nova acquired at PAX.

He uses the name TheCampingTree because his favorite game, Counter-Strike, had a feature in which you can become an object in-game, and he was fond of turning into a tree. When the username TheCampingTree couldn't be used, he randomly saw a spoon and decided to use that.

Sp00n's face is a major mystery in the Creature universe, he always teased his subscribers with the titles 'Sp00n's face', but never revealed it. However, a thank you video for 140,000 subscribers, he showed himself but wearing a horse mask, this was well received so he did it again in his New Years video. During the Creature Stream, there was a milestone for a million dollars where Sp00n will reveal his face, but it was never reached. THen as stated above in the first block of writing, sp00n revealed himself at the Creatures RTX Panel in 2013.
