John Yazici (born: June 23, 1995 (1995-06-23) [age 25]), better known online as ThatGuyBarney or simply Barney, is a Turkish-American gamer. In the early videos of SkyvsGaming channel Sky Does Minecraft, RedVacktor, and JinBop called him "John". He was a close friend of SkyDoesMinecraft during high school. His skin in Minecraft is based off Barney the dinosaur but he put his own twist in it by adding an eye patch.


In mid 2015 Barney and Sky started to record videos together along with YourPalRoss, Aphmau and JinBopGaming. Everyone except for Aphmau and Jin now record in an office building in Washington state with the help of their editor TimTim. Jin left the offices to pursue a solo career. Although, Mithzan and House_Owner have left the offices to focus on their own channels.

In a recent podcast with Phillip DeFranco, Sky confirmed that Barney's accent was fake the whole time, and his American accent was revealed in Barney's 500k video as well as SkyVSGaming's Gang Beasts video with Barney and Em, another member of the Sky Media Offices. Sky said in this video that Barney was working on his American accent, and that he has been spoon feeding him American through cheeseburgers. He has also used his American accent in the Fourth Of July Do Not Laugh special on Sky Does Minecraft and has used it during Drunk Cards Against Humanity on OfficeAntics. He continues to use his Turkish accent on his channel as well as in other gaming videos.

On July 7, 2016 he released a video title THE REAL ME! in which he explains himself that he was born in Washington and that it was true that his father was Turkish and mother American, which was confirmed in a Two Truths and a Lie video. He created this Barney character from his visits to his family in Turkey and would talk with his brother Ooshgun in this accent. He previously had a Destiny gameplay channel called Dirtbag Gamers, which is now ThatGuyBarney, where he would play as Barney (this is probably where his obsession of dirt comes from). He states that he will continue to be Barney, the broken-English character that he has created for entertainment purposes but on OfficeAntics and Couch Potatoes will use his American voice to express his true self.

John recently announced that he would be going part time at the offices so that he can make videos with his brother Eren (Ooshgoon).

He then made Fortnite videos. As of November 2019, he is inactive on his YouTube channel.

  • He also says dirt in many scenarios most of the time as an insult.
  • Another joke around the group is the goat. Goat is a character Barney made up and is now his pet in many series of games. Goat is also Aphmau's (Jess) husband as a joke.
  • In Sky's roleplay series Roommates, the Barney of that universe is from another country where humanoid dinosaurs are the natives and inhabit dirt villages and raise goats to make goat milk and goat cheese. The natives also speak a language composed of at least all the words Barney made up or commonly uses. His father is also the leader of his home village.
