Introducing the Goonzquad Brothers

Born in America to Ukrainian immigrants known affectionately as Mama and Pops. I introduce to you, Simon and Billy, "as they are known to their 2.5 million and counting subscribers of their YouTube channel." These talented young men have taken the internet world by storm. Located in the hills of rural Tennessee, these two boys with the help of their family have created an empire from their awesome and entertaining YouTube videos. As a huge fan of the Goonzquad brothers, I watch faithfully every week as they bring outstanding, high definition, highly entertaining, automotive, construction, and just plain old having fun videos to my living room 2-3 times a week.

Paying Homage as a Fan

I wanted to highlight some of their videos that impacted me greatly and made me a fan for life. These creative young men inspire me with their content every week and feel like I almost know them personally. I hope that by sharing these videos, I can reach many more potential fans and bring them closer to the Goonzquad family. For Billy and Simon: As a child of Estonian immigrants myself, I want to personally thank you for the content you provide. I look forward to your videos and I truly appreciate your hard work!

The Origin of the Goonzquad Name

By combining Goons (they considered themselves Goons, a funny riff on two boys that liked to have fun clowning around) and Quads (a shortened term for a 4 wheeler which they have a great passion for riding and ripping.) This is where the name of their YouTube channel originated.

The Goonzquad's First Video

The First Automotive Restoration Project

After several videos showcasing quads and cars. The brothers started their first restoration project. Providing video and details of them rebuilding a wrecked Jeep Rubicon from start to finish in their parent's driveway. This is the first video of them on YouTube purchasing wrecked vehicles from an auction and restoring them.

Creating Content

After their first successful restoration project, the Goonzquad brothers continued to rebuild cars, trucks, jeeps, and finally supercars such as a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Dodge Viper. They also rebuilt a Mustang GT and Camaro ZL1 thrown in for good measure. As time went on, their videos just kept getting better and better. They eventually graduated from working on cars in the driveway to building a new pole barn garage. These hard working brothers even helped build it themselves in their parent's yard. As their YouTube channel grew in popularity, the boys started filming high definition video with hot music tracks thrown in, it seems that they finally found their niche.

Buying Commercial Property for the New Goonzquad Garage

After many years of hard work and having fun restoring wrecked vehicles in the driveway of their parent's home, the brothers finally purchased some commercial property with the intention of building their very own automotive shop. From clearing the property to finally constructing the shop, these boys are on their way to bigger and better things! I truly loved watching these construction episodes.

The Future Goonzquad Garage

Purchasing a Fixer Upper House and Restoring it

When elder brother Billy decided to get married, I think he decided that it was time for a place of his own. (Only my opinion) The brothers purchased an unfinished home high atop a mountain with a beautiful view of the Tennessee valley and mountains. These resourceful brothers once again show off their talents as they completely rebuilt the existing house that came with property and beautifully transformed the exterior landscape with the addition of sod and plants. I can't wait to see the younger brother Simeons new home in future videos.

The Beginning of the Goonzquad Headquarters Series

Their Very Own Hot Sauce

After 6 years of YouTube success and nearly 3 million subscribers, the Goonzquad brothers top off a wonderful career of creating YouTube videos based on their lives and passion for cars, quads, and family with the creation of their very own hot sauce. "Dang Sauce" in collaboration with Hoff's Hot Sauce. This chipotle lime hot sauce is a new offering from the brothers that exemplifies their business acumen. The name of the hot sauce was crafted around their signature tag line "dang son" which is frequently exclaimed in their videos and displayed on their t-shirts and other merchandise. In this video, they introduce their latest project, the 2021 Factory Five GTM along with their new hot sauce for the first time.

Keep Moving Forward

I want to thank the Goonzquad brothers for the rich entertainment content they provide weekly. The work you do should be an inspiration for many young people in America today. With a lot of hard hard work and a cell phone camera, you have touched and inspired millions of people. I only hope that my little article does the Goonzquad channel justice and brings you more subscribers that will appreciate everything you do. May God bless you guys and your families and God bless Ukraine! #SlavaUkraine
