Lewis Hilsenteger is a Canada-based ordinary guy, who simply wanted to share fascinating gadgets and new technologies with people all around the world. He launched his YouTube channel back in 2011. And the guy did it. He is the host of the channel while Jack McCann is the videographer. At first he was known as simply ‘Jack’ and was not seen in any of the videos. There was constant speculation from the fans on who Jack could be and Lewis said that they would reveal Jack’s identity once the channel hits 10M subscribers. They upload several videos per week. Fast forward – and they did. In 2018, Unbox Therapy uploaded a video called “Jack” where the subscribers finally got to see the well-known videographer. His identity was revealed and apparently he’s not only a good friend of Lewis but also the most trusted one.
