Not active on YouTube anymore, he regularly streams on his Twitch channel. Read on to celebrate his special day.
Aleksandr Vitalyevich Tchernev-Marchant
September 1, 1992
Aleksandr Vitaly secured his place in gaming through YouTube, where he was incredibly successful. While the YouTube wave of gaming may be over, he still participates in gaming through Twitch. Vitaly was born Aleksandr Vitalyevich Tchernev-Marchant on September 1, 1992, in Russia, although he moved to the United States when he was eight years old. His zodiac sign is Virgo and his ethnicity is Russian. He hasn’t talked about his family, so nothing is known about his parents or possible siblings. In 2008, while he was still in high school, he started his YouTube channel titled “ImmortalHD,” but he didn’t become a YouTuber just yet. After graduating from high school, he moved to Colorado to pursue a degree in graphic design. During his time in college, Vitaly started his career as a YouTuber, with the oldest video currently available on his channel dating back to May 2012. He ended up dropping out of college to dedicate himself to YouTube, moving to Los Angeles to do so.
From the beginning, Vitaly was focused on gaming and gaming-related content, first focusing on the first-person shooter game “Counter-Strike,” although he also played other games on the side. Some of his most successful early videos were “Immortal HD Gets Kidnapped!,” “Sniper Ghost Warrior,” and “Modern Warfare 3 In 30 Seconds.” Currently, the most successful videos on his channel from his entire YouTube career are “GOING ALL IN | CS: GO (JACKPOT)” (1.8 million views), uploaded in 2015, and “Nobs 4 Lyf — Music Video ft. Brother Blake” (1.6 million views), “MY BIGGEST OPENING (CASE OPENING #20) Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,” “SMURF SEASON (OVERWATCH #3) Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,” and “INCREDIBLE AIM (OVERWATCH #2) Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,” all of which have over 1.2 million views.
In 2013, Vitaly also began to show an interest in “Minecraft” and was inducted into the
TheCreatureHub, an English-American group, and business created by and comprising a small group of YouTube commentators and Machinima makers. During his time with The Creatures, as the group called themselves, he joined fellow Creature SlyFoxHound’s band Stuck In Your Radio as the bass player. Vitaly also got involved with the Machinima Happy Hour YouTube channel, appearing on their show “Sanity Not Included,” through which he gained fame. In April 2016, he left The Creatures and founded a new joint channel called Cow Chop with fellow former Creature UberHaxorNova, where they uploaded content such as video game let’s plays, skits, and other humorous content. The last Cow Chop video was uploaded in 2019. Vitaly then turned to Twitch, where he streams himself playing video games such as Grand Theft Auto V.
He creates his own channel, ImmortalHD, which is later renamed Aleks.
Vitaly’s oldest available video is uploaded, titled “Counter-Strike: Source In 30 Seconds.”
