Bradley Lamar Colburn, better known by his online alias theRadBrad, is an American YouTuber and Let's Player most notable for his video game walkthroughs of various new games.

Publications that have written about Colburn include VG247, VentureBeat, and Rolling Stone (when video game publisher Ubisoft sent him merchandise before the release of Watch Dogs 2). They have also used footage and images from his gameplay videos as examples in their writing. Colburn has been dubbed "king of the YouTube walkthrough" by FMV Magazine.


Both BallerStatus.com and FMV Magazine have interviewed him. Colburn's commentary is very grounded, realistic, and composed, but he is prone to panic attacks and hysteria when under pressure. Colburn typically doesn't care much about the specific plots of the video games he reviews, but he does give his audience feedback and share his thoughts on the gameplay.

In 2010, while still in college, Bradley began playing video games. Given his abundance of free time, he made theRadBrad his YouTube channel name and began uploading engaging videos there.


He initially only sought attention on social media and wanted people to be aware of his love of video games. He was surprised to find that within the first few days of starting his channel, he had amassed close to 10,000 subscribers. He quickly rose to prominence in the gaming community as a result of his insightful commentary on different video games and his helpful walkthroughs of video games.


He then began working for the online retailer Best Buy. He graduated the following year and was given a job offer by the gaming network Machinima. He accepted the offer and left his job at Best Buy. Bradley believed that posting videos on the websites of the networking company would advance his career. Unfortunately, he received neither fair payment nor credit for the videos. He, therefore, made the decision to post individual videos on his channel while still working for Machinima.


He published a walkthrough series called Let’s Play on his YouTube channel in 2010, and it has since grown to be a popular resource for video game players. Bradley’s popularity increased when he began adding different perspectives to his commentary videos. Many viewers have been drawn in by his animated facial expressions when he fails to pass a particular level and his profanity. Bradley made the decision to devote his full time to YouTube after he began to earn a lot of money from his videos.
