Spoonkid is a multimedia Rust content creator, best known for his unique thumbnails on YouTube videos, and his popular Twitch Stream. Spoonkid is the owner of arguably the most famous Rust player model, Brinda.
Spoon’s real name is Kevin. He’s is 20 years old, 6 ft tall, resides in Phoenix AZ, US and is of mixed ethnicity – being half white and half mid-east european. He completed 1 year of college education before taking up streaming full time.
Spoonkid drives a Toyota 4-Runner that he likes to take hiking with his friends but needs to clean it out before he takes a road trip. He also plays the piano.
Spoon has chosen to mainly keep his life private in many aspects, to which the vast majority of his viewers supports his decision in.
Spoonkid is notably known for his laid-back approach to the Rust experience. He mostly plays solo and has a remarkable capability to make content appear out of thin air, always keeping the audience engaged with funny shenanigans and heartbreaking rust failures. Spoonkid will typically marathon Rust for hours with frequent bathroom breaks to clean the old water pipes.
Social media presence
Spoon started his Rust content creation journey as a Youtuber making short wipe day videos, eventually moving on to Twitch streaming. His first recorded stream took place on March 5, 2020, under the name “spoonkid1”. Until about June of 2020, most of his streams were titled “Spoonkid Power Hour”, and they were almost all solo streams on wipe day. His streams were unplagued by stream snipers, and had a relaxing vibe.
The Youtube Channel Spoonkid really started to catch on during early 2020, with titles such as I Played Rust Without Crafting And This Is What Happened and How I Used a Rock To Dominate a Rust Server reaching hundreds of thousands of views. These videos seemed to be more streamlined towards a certain plot and with higher production value, most notably short clip cinematics.
In mid-late 2020, Spoonkid’s second channel, spoonkid2 started to flourish, featuring (mostly) unedited footage from Twitch streams. These videos would surprisingly generate as many, if not more views than on the main channel, marking a gateway to a new era in the Spoonkid Universe.
Shortly the Youtube content evolved into a chaotic simplification of the Rust experiences, featuring short clips on the spoonkid6 channel and contemporary pieces of multimedia art on spoonkid3. This marked a turning point for the community of Rust creators, with many fellow creators following suit, most notably Welyn’s highlight channel. This unpredictable and almost anarchistic style of content succeeded because it managed to precisely encapsulate the highs and lows of emotions during the Rust experience.
