Vinesauce Wiki

Yup, I can tell you this is 100% authentic.

Vincent "Funny Calzone Man" Pizzapasta (born May 12, 1985) is the founder of Vinesauce. He is known for his Corruption Videos, Tomodachi Life streams, and Shovelware Showcase. He is from New York City and has a love for pizza and nuggets. He is also known for his accurate impressions of famous characters and people, such as Mario, Luigi, Toad, Pee-Wee Herman, Sonic the Hedgehog, Shitty Bender, Homer Simpson, Bob Borglar Belcher, Tinky Winky, David Bowie, Watto, and Jay Leno.

Vinny is the vocalist and lead guitarist of Red Vox, alongside members Mike, Joe, and Bill. Self-described as "not adhering to any one genre," they are often classified as Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, or Psychedelic Rock. In 2018, the band released a 9 minute and 23 second-long single titled "Stranded," which reached #35 in RYM's Top 100 Singles of 2018.[36]

Working with his friend and previous Vinesauce member, KY, Vinny co-produced an irregularly-scheduled podcast titled "Two on the Vine" from 2015 to 2019. Two on the Vine focused on video games, hobbies, and events occurring within their daily lives. Through the podcast they interacted with the Vinesauce community by receiving viewer mail, and their in-show series "Greenlight Guess" (a series in which they must guess whether the proposed game concept is a real game on Steam's Greenlight platform, or fictional and created by a listener).

If you have a pickle that's uneaten, do not throw it in your garbage. I can't emphasize that enough. ... Throw it out your window.
Vinny, musing on the potency of trash pickles.


The original Vinesauce YouTube page was created on February 20, 2010. Initially, Vinny used the channel to serve small recordings of video game playthroughs and amateur videos. During this time, Vinny became a fan of various video game streams on livestream, a then newly emerging medium. As his favorite streams began to collapse, he had the idea to give streaming a shot himself. All this happened before Twitch was created, so the concept of streaming was still new and more or less undefined. During a Q&A, Vinny explained the beginnings of Vinesauce, as well as how it got its name:

“It all started in a basement a number of years ago. A group of friends was gathered around a television playing one of the GameCube Mario Party games. The mini-game in which vines grow out of the ground and into the sky appeared on screen. A random member of the committee was said to have uttered "Doesn't it look like those vines are growing out of an asshole?" Many jokes and laughs later, "Vinny" became "Vine." At least, that's how the rumor goes. Oh, and for the record, sauce is just a fun word.”

On May 11th, 2010, Vinny launched the Vinesauce website and started his own streams. Within a year, he started to recruit full-time streamers, and would occasionally allow a guest to stream. It was from 2011 to 2013 that he would be joined by several additional streamers, including KY, Joel, Fred, MentalJen, Limes, Darren, Rev, Hootey, and Imakuni. On April 13, 2013, a page for "Vinesauce" was created on TV Tropes.[37] On January 25, 2014, a Vinesauce Facebook page was created, gained over 2,100 likes in the first four months.

Sounds like someone inserting a wet fish into a jar of custard. Not that I know what that sounds like from experience.
Vinny, losing his mind.

A man who's clearly given up on life.


From the article about Vinny from the 2016 Too Many Games convention magazine:

"Vinesauce is not an ingredient you might use to help spice up a pasta. It has little to do with the popular program that takes video of your cat for 10 seconds. It's also not a science-themed Youtube channel that might explain the Earth's gravitational pull as compared to a beach ball... It's much less exciting than all that. Vinesauce is a guy named Vinny from New York that streams video games, plays guitar, eats pizza and uploads the occasional YouTube video.

Well, the truth is, Vinesauce can also refer the team of streamers started by Vinny some years back. A few months after opening his youtube channel in February of 2010, the jabroni called Vinny, (his actual name) began a live stream channel. Over the years, a team of talented and personable streamers was assembled into the collection of lovable folks you see today on Perhaps more importantly, every summer, the streamers get together to raise money for charity during a weekend of non-stop streaming.

Vinny himself has been involved in a myriad of activities over the years. From his standard live streaming to overdubs of classic Mario brothers cartoons, from corruptions to the weirdest games on the internet, from RP with unsuspecting G-Mod players to exploring strange abandoned virtual worlds. Having grown up with the classics, some of Vinny's favorite games include Chrono Trigger, Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link To The Past, Metal Gear Solid, Half-Life, Final Fantasy 9, Warcraft 3, Skies of Arcadia, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Star Fox 64; most of which he's streamed throughout his career.

When not playing video games and making strange duck noises, Vinny is the frontman for the rock band Red Vox. Having released their debut album "What Could Go Wrong" in early 2016, Red Vox enjoys playing the occasional show marred by technical difficulties and weak booze. The band released "Blood Bagel" in 2016 followed by "Another Light" in 2017, "Kerosene" in 2019, "Realign" in 2020, and "Lost For A While" in 2020. The band's most recent release is the album "Visions" in 2022.

Vinny and the Vinesauce team enjoy entertaining and sharing their thoughts on videogames. Old games, new games, bizarre games, amazing games and games so bad no one should ever see; Vinesauce streams them all. They continue to stream nightly to an incredible audience of the nicest, most down-to-earth people on the internet."
Try cutting a steak with a balloon. That is how I feel in terms of frustration level when playing Bubsy 3D.

The Adventures of Mario and Luigi (Episode 1)


  • In a Red Vox AMA hosted on July 21, 2016 Vinny said his favorite food was chicken tendies.[38]
    • His real favorite food is pizza.
    • The only pizza he doesn't like is pineapple (strange to him, despite its memetic nature) and one horrendous bacon pizza he had in Pennsylvania, which may have been 'bootleg bacon'.[citation needed]
  • He isn't ULTIMATE PSYCHO BANANAS about pasta, like his "last name" may suggest.
  • Chrono Trigger was the first game that Vinny streamed.
  • In 2016, Vinny released his first album with the band Red Vox.
  • Vinny's Active Worlds video went viral after a number of clickbait articles stated that an ancient AI had come to life in an abandoned virtual chat client from the 90s.[39][40]
  • Ralph Bluetawn is by Vinny's own admission, not a 100% original character. However, he still loves pizza, beer, women and has yet to find the buvvins.
  • Vinny, Criken, and Cr1TiKaL once created an erotic novel by each saying a single word at a time until a "story" was formed. To this day it's widely regarded as a cr1tical and commercial success failure.[41] Vinny then attempted to recreate the scenario, but with Jerma instead of Cr1tiKal, a few years later— with similiar mixed results.[42]
  • Vinny was raised Catholic, having spent 16 years of his life in Catholic school, but left the faith after facing "a lot of hypocrisy" and "asking the wrong questions." Since then, he has been known to be critical of religion, in particular religious views being presented as fact (as shown in his streams of The Zoo Race and the GBA version of The Bible Game). However, he claims to still believe in God and engages in different spiritual practices such as meditation.[citation needed]
    • Ironically, despite his upbringing, he is very adept at conjuring Satan during his various game corruptions.
  • A common complaint about Vincent is that he mostly plays babby games, instead of schüt games. He has addressed this issue, and since then, has been playing more schüt games, like Wolfenstein: The New Order, and its expansion, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.
  • After quitting his editing job at a television station around the beginning of 2014, he launched a Patreon to secure his financial situation. After feeling guilty about it and knowing he'd not need it, he canceled it after the first payment. He'd donate the money during the first charity stream to PCRF.[43]
  • Vinny received two red dildos ('red cocks') in the mail from one of his stream mods (Gearomatic) around early March and joked about raffling them in his stream of Minecraft.[citation needed] The same two red dildos were later used in one of his "PLUG AND PLAgue" videos where he used them to perform actions in the motion controlled plug-and-play game.[44]
  • According to eyewitness account from Imakuni, contrary to popular belief, Vinny smells like a "Man with good hygiene", and does not smell like pizza. Some fans theorize Vinny may have washed his natural pizza smell off prior to Imakuni's arrival, and these results are currently inconclusive as of now.[citation needed]
  • Vinny is known for having a passive ability which causes games to glitch for no apparent reason. Examples include clipping through a wall on his first try in Sonic 3,[45] seemingly corrupting a ROM in the Sony Marzio Collection,[46] and many moments in his Skyrim Switch series.
  • Since the chat corrects Vinny whenever he makes a mistake, he often calls them "Chatyot", a play on them calling him "Binyot" and/or "Brainyot".
  • Vinny was an English major. In his Metroid Prime 2: Echoes stream on June 18, 2018, Vinny lectured his viewers on when to pronounce the word 'the' as "thee" or "thuh."
  • He once stated that his favorite video on the internet was when DJ Khaled could not make it past wing #2 on Hot Ones and promptly explaining that quitting is in fact, winning.[citation needed]
  • He can dislocate his shoulder on purpose.[47]
  • Vinny formerly used Chatango for chat rooms in addition to Twitch.[citation needed]
  • He has become aware of his various aliases listed on this very Wiki page.[18]
  • His first Tears of the Kingdom stream (which came out on his birthday), currently holds the record for longest stream in Vinesauce history with a total of 8:02:59, surpassing part 4 of his Breath of the Wild stream with 7:02:01. [48]
  • His main highlight channel on Youtube has historically reached to 1 million subscribers on June 2, 2023. With this accomplishment, Vinny will soon be rewarded with a Golden Play Button (which he could later melt it into a dildo). [49]
  • Both Joel and Vinny have been featured as background easter eggs in the Australian preschool cartoon "Bluey".[50]
