|“||Attention all Fortnite gamers, John Wick is in great danger, and needs your help!||”|
Peter "Pete" Accetturo (born: July 22, 1959 ), better known online as VoiceoverPete, is an American YouTuber, streamer, voice actor, comedian, and spokesperson. He is known for his voiceovers on games which quickly became memes, and he got involved with it further.
He first found exposure online by making a video containing Fortnite, around September 2018, where he says, "Attention all Fortnite gamers, John Wick needs your help". The Fortnite joke he made was asking the viewers for his mother's credit card and then would eventually 'help' John Wick get weapons to eliminate all his opponents, 'and achieve the victory royale'. The purpose of the video itself was to mock the Fortnite scammers and to help change his business.
On YouTube, VoiceoverPete is very well known in the community and was also mentioned by PewDiePie multiple times. He is also known on Twitter by a community that shares or creates memes. Pete's "Attention of gamers" persona has died off. His newfound fame gave him a push in the right direction to help him make his current YouTube videos. He has also mentioned being of Italian descent.
Prior to his work on Fiverr, Accetturo was a corporate sales presenter, which allowed him to easily transition to becoming a spokesperson on the platform Fiverr. Accetturo became an "elite-level" content creator on the platform, and co-hosted several Fiverr events.
Banned from Fiverr
On November 5, 2018, Pete was banned indefinitely from Fiverr for 'scamming'. Fiverr had once mentioned they don’t “disclose information about specific user accounts,” adding that “any attempt to defraud or scam others is in clear violation of our terms of service and strictly prohibited. We have and will always act without delay against this type of behavior in order to keep our marketplace safe for our community.”
Pete moved on to Patreon, Twitch, Twitter and YouTube, and will continue his spokesperson work and memes.
Another well-known meme user Grandayy was the first to mention Pete about his ban. Shortly after, Ace produced a video explaining his situation, and in under 24 hours, the video reached on YouTube, vowing support and the hashtag #JusticeForVoiceOverPete. PewDiePie also made a "PewNews" video on Pete's Fiverr ban, and says to Fiverr about them banning people without reaching them out.
