Kevin O'Reilly (better known by his username Call Me Kevin, simply Kevin or zXNoRegretzzXz in the days of yore) is an Irish YouTuber who is known for his comical gameplay commentaries and other lifestyle type videos of comedic nature. Kevin has described his channel as a variety gaming channel, though he will occasionally branch out and upload skits and music covers. The lion share of Kevin's videos involve interaction with others online and capturing specific moments of comedy during gameplay, usually involving him breaking his game, causing havoc, or reluctantly completing certain tasks to progress.
During his time on YouTube, he has uploaded many series, such as Garry's Mod, Minecraft, Hello Neighbor, The Sims 4, Comedy Night, Harry Potter, Bitlife and Grand Theft Auto RP. Kevin also plays all sorts of other games, though they are usually one-offs. Kevin created the characters Jim Pickens, Grognak The Destroyer, JOG MANSEN (sic), as well as several others that usually make one time appearances. He is also the God of the Pickens Character Universe (PCU) and controls what happens in it. Praise Jim Pickens, our lord and saviour.
Kevin was born on November 10th, 1993, and currently lives in Cork, Ireland. He also previously lived in Midleton, Ireland, and once lived in Scotland for a year.
In his Draw My Life video, Kevin described his childhood as him "doing what [he] does now, except [he] talked less", and joked that everyone probably found it nice because of the peace and quiet. He has a scar under his eye, which he says he got from falling over and hitting his head on a couch leg while spinning in circles with his sister. In a separate video on his old channel, he said it wasn't all bad because he missed out on going to church, since the accident occurred on a Sunday. He has also told various tales of how he got the scar, quipping that subscribers never got the same story and that the truth would be open to interpretation.
During primary school, he suffered from stomach pains and was vomiting blood at one point, which caused him to miss a lot of school. While dealing with his stomach issues, he also experienced pain in his ear canal, noting that loud noises would upset him. These two problems combined meant that he missed almost a year of school. Kevin moved to high school eventually, and described himself as a "B to C student", adding that he didn't really apply much effort into his work. Following some exams during his third year, his stomach problems amplified and became much worse, causing him to miss more time from school.
During his absence from school, he played a lot of Xbox and discovered the gameplay side of YouTube around 2008, when gameplay channels weren't as common as they are these days. He bought a capture card and created his first YouTube video on the channel called "zXNoRegretzzXz", which has since been renamed "The Old CallMeKevin Channel". He recalled the video being a simple clip of a trickshot in a game like Call of Duty. He moved on to making skits, and eventually received an offer from Machinima to make videos for them, which he accepted. The promise of payment for his videos caused Kevin's parents to think he was being scammed, though he got his way after he apparently whined quite a bit. During his time making videos for Machinima, he created the "How to Annoy" series, which gave him a lot of money and recognition online, even in the present day.
After considerable time away from school, Kevin tried to go back, though his stomach issues persisted and he had to go home that same day. Doctors eventually discovered that Kevin had ulcers forming in his stomach due to stress and anxiety, which was the chief cause of the pain. After talking to his parents, he decided for the sake of his health to drop out of school in 2009 when he was 16. He moved to Scotland when he was 18 and lived there for a year, which he described as "an unhappy year" because he became a shut-in and didn't socialize much. He returned to Ireland, after which his work ethic fell apart and he quit YouTube for a period of time.
During his hiatus from YouTube, Kevin became the owner of a retail store called CeX, a company that specializes in second-hand electronic goods, and owned it for about 3 years. In 2016, Kevin was hit by a vehicle after seeing Batman vs Superman at the local cinema. His awkward landing after being struck caused injuries and ailments that affect him to this day. He returned to work after the accident, but found his injuries were preventing his ability to do his job. The increased staff costs at the shop to compensate for Kevin's inability to work, his medical bills, and the assailant not admitting fault for the accident led to the shop not being profitable for himself. He came to the decision to sell the store, since his injuries were causing problems at work and he had opted not to get surgery for his shoulder upon receiving conflicting advice about the pros and cons of surgery.
Kevin returned to YouTube for fun in late 2016 with his new channel, "CallMeKevin", bringing over almost 8,000 subscribers from his old channel. He experienced slow growth on his channel for a while (for example, he'd get 30 subs one day and 6 subs the next), though his channel skyrocketed after an Ouya video he made went viral. He soon began doing YouTube full time, as he is now, and hit a million subscribers in 2017. This led to him getting recommended by YouTube and his growth on the platform becoming more steady. In March 2019, Kevin hit 2 million subscribers, a substantial number.
Sims 4 character
In his Sims 4 but I abuse my magic video, Kevin introduced his subscribers to a new character from the O Reilly household (without the apostrophe). His first name does not appear in the video but we can easily assume it is "Kevin", as the YouTuber explains clearly that he is the character portrayed, as well as the Sim bearing some sort of resemblance to Kevin. He died almost immediately after being added to the Pickens household, unfortunately the day before Death Day, after a magic spell from a mod caused him to be hit by a car. Kevin likened this to his real life accident, except he actually survived in real life.
In 2019,Kevin released two videos where he played Gta san andreas with the use of mods. Due to the videos being similar to those of another youtuber named RADAL,RADAL dissed Kevin in his video about editing videos,which led to somewhat of a small war between the fanbases,but was mostly forgotten.

- Kevin's favourite song is 'I Will Follow You Into The Dark', by Death Cab For Cutie, as mentioned in his Twitch Sings but I go from an epic gamer to a bad singer video. He claims that he can't sing it very well, but Kevin is a fecking liar.
- Kevin is a Scorpio.
- Kevin likes to make light of his accident in his videos, giving us multiple jokes and several highly detailed professional videos on how it happened. He usually does so in programs like Microsoft Paint and GTA V to give us an accurate portrayal of events.
- In "Comedy Night but it’s a Christian server", Kevin jokes about being Catholic but later confirms that he doesn't, in fact, identify as one.
- Seven Tails was someone Kevin met randomly on a Gmod server. And after enjoying the quality of the content, he invited him back for more episodes.

- "Kevin's favorite movie is 'The Emoji Movie' " - BoomLiam on the official Discord server.
- Kevin loves to annoy people online, as he mentioned in his video called "Reacting to my YouTube videos from 2010".
- While Kevin's older (2016-mid 2017) videos were often named individually, he changed the format of his video titles to "[Game Name], but [Description of the video's content]". Since he played Minecraft: Story Mode, he brought back the individual names, though it was mainly the M:SM series to highlight how terrible it is. In 2019, Kevin brought back the individual names, noting that he thought it was unique when he started doing it, but then a lot of other YouTubers started doing the same thing.
- Kevin always likes to remind people that his name is Kevin and everybody should call him Kevin, because he thinks people often forget his name. This is likely linked to his Amnosia. Kevin even forgets his own name on occasion.
- Kevin has been confirmed to be God himself during all of his videos. There are clues in each that when all are seen allows you to see Kevin in his true form.
- Kevin regularly suffers from multiple memory or mind related illnesses, namely Amnosia (Amnesia, but with an "o" and not medically recognized), an unnamed disease due to which he sometimes is under the delusion that he is a doctor of varying fields (medicine, science, psychology etc.) and an uncountable amount of mostly temporary obsessions, including unnecessary torture, murdering children, cannibalism, altering customizable characters' appearances to godlike degrees, spreading communism, destroying capitalism, driving buses and PS1 Hagrid.
- Kevin once claimed to be the true "King of Irish YouTube", a statement which he quickly retracted after Jacksepticeye asserted himself as king and dethroned Kevin by beating him unconscious. (see "Escapists 2 but I belong in jail").
- In "Resident Evil 4 but I am a misunderstood outsider" Kevin has stated that he does not watch a lot of movies. In the same video, he said he wasn't a fan of Star Wars, though he has done some Star Wars related videos on his channel.
- He is an extremely picky eater. He claims that any food that looks or smells odd to him makes the food inedible to him.
- He likes to do woodwork and is considering streaming himself doing woodworking.
- During his Twitch Sings stream, Kevin mentioned that he isn't a fan of petting animals, with the exception of dogs.
- In "Beat saber but I have zero coordination", Kevin mentioned that he is a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, bringing it up before he plays their song "Tell Me Baby". In a later video, he made a reference and a pun using lyrics from their song "Under the Bridge". In one of his first Sims 4 videos, he also had the intro to their song "Dark Necessities" playing during his intro. He also has a vinyl of their album, Californication, sitting on his gaming merch shelf.
- Kevin has recently limited the use of the word feck for some reason. He probably wants to avoid YouTube registering it as profanity and thus, reserves the use for special occasions. He has also been using the word "sugar" more often instead of "shit".
- His parents were actually very supportive of him and his career choices despite what Kevin says. (for example, when he dropped out of school for YouTube)
- During his Ask Me Anything, Kevin said he doesn't like pineapple on pizza.
- Kevin's favorite Star Wars character is TC-14 from Episode 1, despite only having seen him in Lego Star Wars.
- In September 2019, Kevin had a problem with butterflies interrupting his recordings. This is probably due to him being a Disney princess.
- As of April 2019, Kevin is still Irish but is contemplating the conversion to Scottish.
- If Kevin was a girl, he'd go by the name Kevina
