Ricky Lai (known as MasterJakeStudios or MJS), is a video-content producer on YouTube, known for his speaking accent and popular Halloween specials.


Ricky Lai owns a YouTube channel, where his main focuses are on video game countdowns, although since his second season he has started moving onto other types of media.

At first Lai produced videos containing special effects, however after a year he found them cringe-inducing, leading to his deletion of them from his channel. As of now, he has only kept several good ones online.

After viewing countdown makers that made videos on the subject of easter eggs in gaming, Lai was intrigued and made his own list of the Top Ten Creepiest Mysteries in Non-Horror Games. This countdown did not hold up well, however it gave him recognition and inspired him to make more. After improvement, he named the series "MJS Gaming" and continues to release more episodes of this series.


Ricky considers his video countdowns to be the main showcase for his channel. Many of them are on topics related to video games. A full list of his countdowns organised by date can be found here:

MJS Thoughts OnEdit

This series contains videos that go over Lai's thoughts on several ideas in media. These range from video games to movies, to even music albums (so far has been Dora the Explorer games for the GBA, and Rayman). The series has gone into a huge hiatus, however Lai has announced the reboot of it with episodes reviewing NineCallisto's album "Sinister Flash", and Wartune.

Let's Read a FanficEdit

Lai was once sent a terribly written fanfiction involving characters of Shrek, and after being told of its hilarity, he decided to read it out loud and post it to YouTube depending on his reaction. After the upload, the fanfiction reading gained popularity, the first one even being posted to Know Your Meme. This resulted in the Let's Read a Fanfic video spawning a whole series of fanfiction readings, each one containing hysterical laughter.

#2. Shrek and the Dangerous Dickle Dackle

#3. Double Edition! Sonik and Spingebibble!
