Jacob "Jake" (born: September 27, 1999YouTuber. His content focuses on trolling players, mainly cheaters, on his and Skeppy's Minecraft server, InvadedLands (invadedlands.net) which he is a Manager (2nd to most powerful rank, besides Owner) on, and hosting events, to find one winner, which there is usually a reward for. When he's trolling players, he often has them write haikus, short poems, about why they shouldn't be banned. He occasionally helps Skeppy troll their friend BadBoyHalo. He also makes fun of fake or bad appeals and staff applications that were made to troll the staff. He have an older brother and a twin brother.), better known online as Zelk (also known as ZelkTheElk, formerly known as Zelkam), is an American mainly Minecraft
Rise To Fame
He started to gain a decent-sized audience around the time when he made a number of ping spoofing (a meme created by Skeppy and his fans) related videos from November 3 to November 26, 2018. This happened around when Skeppy started trolling BadBoyHalo, the time when he created the ping spoofing meme. Their videos together gave all three of these channels a lot of views. He made his channel on August 11, 2015, but uploaded his first public video on August 19, 2015. He also mentions Skeppy, a6d, BadBoyHalo, Spifey, TapL & F1NN5TER on his channel, and has a second channel ZelkTheElk - Live.
Zelk is a manager on Skeppy's Minecraft server, InvadedLands, which is a server that consists of the following game-modes: KitPvP, SkyBlock, UHC, Survival. The server was released around August 19, 2015, when the release video was made on Zelk's channel. InvadedLands is currently ranking #3 on the leaderboards of MinecraftServers.org, due to Skeppy's large audience and the server's fun and simple game-modes.
On InvadedLands, he trolls players for his channel and uncommonly makes people write haikus because not a lot of people know what it is, and most of the time they are not very good in general. He often also makes events but make them impossible to scam the players, such as a Find The Button with no correct button, or a maze with no exit. He also often does "quiz" videos where players answer multiple-choice questions, though Zelk often makes these difficult.
He is included in many of Skeppy's videos and skits. For example, in the video "Ultimate $1,000 Red Rover - Challenge" he is found helping Skeppy & BadyBoyHalo with the event.
It all started in September 5, 2020, when Skeppy tweeted being wholesome to his fans saying "I lava you all so much :)", Zelk decided to joke with him and replying by using a quote from the TV Show Brooklyn-99 "I will slit you open from mouth to anus and wear you like a jacket". It quickly became his most liked twitter reply, so he continued to joke around with his friends and other YouTubers in Twitter replies.
Approximately 3 months later on November 30, 2020, he was permanently suspended for his most liked twitter reply by Twitter Team for issuing "Violent Threats".
After his main and his alt account got suspended, he made an appeal and the automated twitter response told him to expect a response between 4-5 days or longer. He has yet to receive a response. Zelk claims that he doesn't like twitter, but needs to use it to update his fans.
Fortunately on May 4, 2021, Over 5 months later, his main Twitter account was unsuspended but his alt Twitter account hasn't been unsuspended yet.
