Who is CrazyRussianHacker?

Taras Vladimirovich Kulakov, popularly known by his online moniker CrazyRussianHacker, is a US-based Russian-Ukranian YouTube tech, science, and life hacks influencer. As of 2023, Kulakov's YouTube presence is split among different channels -- CrazyRussianHacker with 11.8M subscribers, Taras Kul with 3.6M, Slow Mo Lab with 545K, and Kul Farm with 357K. 

Before working as a full-time influencer, Kulakov worked at Walmart while developing his YouTube channel CrazyRussianHacker on the side. His first channel, origami768, which he renamed to Taras Kul later on, featured origami video tutorials. Kulakov then created two more YT channels but earned fame through his third and primary channel, the CrazyRussianHacker. When his channel blew up like crazy and gained millions of viewers, Kulakov ditched his Walmart job. 

The influencer created his primary channel in 2012 and frequently posts science experiments, demos, life hacks, DIYs, and product reviews. 

While many people frown at science guys, Kulakov sports an endearing online persona and good-natured humor, although his offbeat personality sometimes drowns in his thick Russian accent. Aside from the super cool science and explosions, Kulakov became an internet success because of the character he exudes. 

Kulakov's food hacks and survivalist videos made headlines on Business Insider, The Huffington Post, and Popular Mechanics. 

At the beginning of his videos, Kulakov reminds viewers that safety is his top priority. 

Aside from his YouTube popularity, Kulakov has 7.5M followers on Facebook, 739K on Instagram, 649.2K on TikTok, and 3.5K on Twitter.
