Shane Allen (born February 20, 1997 (age 19)), known as ExplodingTNT, is a Canadian YouTuber that makes Minecraft machinimas and more videos.


When Shane first started, he made videos about various things in Minecraft exploding, hence the name "ExplodingTNT". Eventually, he decided to change the main focus of his channel to making the Minecraft machinimas he still makes today. These machinimas typically start with IfWhy, or How, and follow various comedic scenes revolving around the concept described in the video. In late 2015, ExplodingTNT's machinimas began to grow more in-depth, with a more organized plot line, title, and character development.


Several of Shane's videos guest star other Minecraft YouTubers skins' as well, such as SkyDoesMinecraft, JeromeASF, deadlox, and others. He has collaborated with other YouTubers before, such as his current best friends GameplayerHD, Failboat, AdamRodriguezGames, and many others. Much like ItsJerryandHarry, Most of his machinimas feature characters talking with text over their head, but he has used voice actors as well, such as AdamRodriguezGames.

Shane also owns Minecraft minigame servers with GameplayerHD, called McOrigins and The Nova, that were both featured in some of his videos, and a second channel entitled TheTNTExploders. He currently has over two million subscribers, making him one of the most popular Minecraft machinima makers. He always likes to make his subscribers laugh every video, and has become a hero to several people worldwide.
