History and Bio of ZHC
Zach started his YouTube channel on August 6, 2013, and uploaded his first video on December 13, 2016. His earlier content mainly focused on art tutorials and how-to videos, including drawing characters in a comic book style.
By 2018, he started uploading challenges, including drawing for a long time and the “Last To Stop Drawing Wins ___” challenge. He also began featuring characters in some of his videos, including Dax The Clameleon, Turkey, BunBun, Scrunchie (3 of them are known as the “Flex Family”), and Dragon The Rock Johnson (the name is a parody of Dwayne Johnson/The Rock). In addition, he is often holding money or art supplies. His recent content consists of giving away custom products and surprising famous YouTubers with customized items. On February 21, 2020, he released a video titled “Surprising Charli D’Amelio With 20 Custom iPhone 11s!! ft. TikTok & LilHuddy (Giveaway),” where he and his friend Leo Mahalo customized iPhone 11s for TikTokers in The Hype House. This became his most viewed video as of August 2020.
ZHC has collaborated with many YouTubers, including MrBeast, who received a Tesla customized by Zach and other YouTube artists.

He also collaborated with Zach King in “Surprising Zach King With A Custom Car, Then Living In It For 24 Hours ($60,000)”.
On August 28, 2021, he uploaded a video of him customizing one of the largest hospitals in the world for a hundred hours and paying $200,000 worth of other people’s medical bills. Even though paying people’s medical bills was supposed to initially be a MrBeast idea requested from the latter’s fans, MrBeast found it hard to put the theory into practice without quickly recording the patients’ faces in the hospitals. Hence, ZHC managed to put this idea into practice while customizing a hospital first. As a result, this video has become #1 on trending in late August 2021.
