Jason Kummerfeldt – IG @50_shades_of_jason YT GrainyDays
“Jason is probably the most humble person you will ever meet – an aspiring photographer who runs a powerful global empire of online videos, but believe it or not his life wasn’t always this way. Before becoming a youtube god, jason led an entirely different life altogether:
Young and fresh out of boot camp, Jason joined the navy seals, got totally ripped, and learned how to do like 300 pushups in one hour. Unfortunately Jason was kicked out of the seals for going rogue on assignment. With nothing else to do, he entered law enforcement academy as a young recruit, eager to earn his stripes. Jason rose up through the ranks very quickly as he demonstrated a passion for justice, even if occasionally he got too emotionally involved in the cases, and still continued to go rogue.
Jason now hides under disguise as a low life youtuber who makes dumb little film photography videos as a cover while he continues his search for justice and the truth behind who framed him and why.”
