Nathan Zen’s Career

Nathan began his social media career while he was still in school. Racism was an important factor in his career decision. Since Nathan is of Ethiopian descent, he has been the target of numerous discriminatory remarks in the past. The reality that few Ethiopian “YouTubers” were popular at the time also influenced his decision to pursue a career on YouTube.

Nathan launched a YouTube channel in the middle of 2011. He selected “TheThirdPew” as his online alias. Six months later, he uploaded the first video to the channel, titled “Annoying Stereotypes.” Nathan discussed human psychology and behavior in the video. Soon after, he began uploading videos with the diverse subject matter.

Nathan has previously struggled with depression and anxiety. As an Ethiopian, he has also encountered racism on multiple occasions. These issues eventually dominated the majority of his channel’s content. Through his satirical videos, Nathan speaks about such social ills. In his ‘You’re Not Good Enough’ video, he discussed his personal experiences and tribulations as an Ethiopian growing up.

This video also led to the establishment of his merchandise line, ‘Good Enough,’ which he sells on multiple purchasing websites. The merchandise line includes sweatshirts, caps, and other accessories bearing his logo. Later, Nathan began composing a musical story about the hardships and difficulties of being a victim of prejudice. This four-part musical story consisted of selected songs with accompanying visuals, all of which were edited by Nathan.

Although Nathan’s videos have a reputation for being humorous and satirical, they address serious issues. Nathan discussed rape and the negative sentiments associated with the heinous crime in one of his videos. In a separate video, Nathan addressed the widespread problem of youth falling out of college or school.

Once, he uploaded a reaction video to the popular ‘Vine’ star Nash Grier’s video, ‘What Guys Look For in Girls.’ The popularity of Nathan’s response video increased the number of subscribers to Nathan’s channel. In addition, he produced the video segment ‘YouTube Sings,’ in which he compiled footage of “YouTubers” proposing lyrics to songs.

In his ‘YouTube Sings’ videos, Nathan has performed songs such as ‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk and ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen. The channel has more than 480,000 subscribers.
