I laughed at your Viper avatar. He's a true artistic inspiration.BIG MDE fan here, as some may be able to tell by my username. I can't believe I've never seen this video before; I've seen nearly all of them. I'm not sure if it's meant to be a parody of Jace or just military nerds in general., but Sam Hyde definitely knows about him. He was the one who first introduced me to Jace through FB (along with an irl friend).
I remember Sam talking extensively about a variety of guns in a video. He was pretty knowledgable about them. I wonder where exactly he found out about Jace.According to this video(released in late 2011), he's known about Jace since at least a year before /k/ found about him.
Could be DeviantArt? Jace said he was posting on DeviantArt regularly back before he started his Tumblr (before he got banned from DA, for reasons he still won't elaborate on but I'd guess posting furry porn) so that's my best guess - we don't have any other contenders for Jace's historical e-presence except Jace's Steam profile which dates back like 6 years from before /k/ found him, but I doubt Hyde would have caught wind of him from that.I remember Sam talking extensively about a variety of guns in a video.

The original upload on MDE's channel was dated to November or December 2011, so that's about a year before the /k/ stuff.He uses the name ParkourDude91 in the Tactical Talk video. I don't know the timeline on the vids, so maybe that one came out after the /k/ stuff.
the real question is how did sam know about parkourdude91 back in december 2011. i'm not to familiar with what jace was doing back then. can anybody enlighten me?
Source? I have a hard time believing this because the video references Jace by name...sam hyde said that he initially did the veteran character on his own accord and wasn't aware of jace at the time.
i know somebody close to sam who asked him for meWe know by now Hyde follow lolcows, we know he follows Dan Quinn in particular since he makes references to Stevia etc. in his videos. This page (click "favs") is an archive of his YT favorites from before the channel got closed down. Control+f "Dan Quinn" and you'll find about 300 videos that Sam has favorited on YouTube, as well as shit from Corum Siegl and other lolcows. Not really surprising to me that Jace got a mention somewhere.

i was gunna post this video today after i rewatched ideas man after the mde youtube channel was brought back. the similarities are uncanny; same sort of face, same sort of hair/hairline, and identical voices.There is someone who looks (and much more than that sounds) like Jace in this MDE video.
4:37 - 4:44
The original is from 2013, when Jace was still baby-faced and chubby, but beginning to lose his hair.
Not saying it's him, but damn that does sound like him.
EDIT: Also, a few seconds before that, at about 4:28 is the same guy. The one who says "data pagan - cyber vegan." Looks less like Jace there but the same lisp.
