Thompson had been working on a book, "52 Random Weekend Projects", in the months prior to his death. The book was "almost finished" at the time of Thompson's death, and was completed by the production crew of the channel, including Bonham and Gade. The book contains 52 of Thompson's favorite projects done on the channel and was released on March 10, 2020.


The King of Random (TKOR) is a YouTube channel created by Grant Thompson that conducts DIY projects and experiments (such as cutting open spray paint cans) and often involving large amounts of a single item. Thompson created the channel in 2010 and the channel continues to upload new content even after his untimely death on July 29, 2019 due to a paragliding accident. He was 38.

The channel was originally hosted solely by Thompson, but is now hosted by Nate Bonham and Calli Gade. As of November 2019, the channel had around 12 million subscribers.

On July 29, 2019, Thompson died in a paramotoring crash near Hurricane in Washington County, Utah. His family had reported him missing around 10:30 pm to the Washington County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) after he did not return from the trip that day. Officers used GPS to connect to a locator he carried with him; they found his body, along with a recording device. The case remains under investigation. He is survived by his wife and four sons. In response to his death, the King of Random channel uploaded Grant Thompson, in Memoriam to YouTube on July 30. The video is exactly one minute long, and is simply a picture of Thompson with the caption "Grant Thompson, 1980-2019".

Furthermore, on August 10, the channel posted a video called To Grant, From the TKOR Team which compiled short tributes from all of the channel staff, including Bonham and Gade. This was the final memorial video; the channel has continued its normal upload schedule since. He was also featured by PewDiePie on his own version of YouTube Rewind 2019.


In January 2018, Thompson was charged with two counts of second-degree felony possession of an explosive device for allegedly conducting incendiary experiments in his backyard. Facing a maximum of 15 years in prison, Thompson agreed to a plea bargain deal. In exchange for dropping the charges to a suspended sentence of misdemeanor recklessness with an incendiary device charge, Thompson agreed to create two YouTube videos educating viewers about the "physical safety and/or the legal risks associated with experiments that could be dangerous".


At the age of 29, Thompson, who was a former airline pilot, was semi-retired in Farmington, Utah, and decided to spend the next seven years studying the way things worked. Eventually, Thompson realized that his friends were becoming interested in his projects, and decided to teach himself to produce videos and begin uploading them to YouTube. The channel's name was originally "01032010814", the exact date and time Thompson created the channel. After his first video, he started making DIY and life hack videos. On September 9, 2017, the channel introduced Nate Bonham as co-host, and he became the permanent host a few weeks later. On October 25, 2018, the channel introduced Calli Gade as co-host. Thompson reportedly stepped away to spend more time with family, but still owned the channel and was involved in its day-to-day operations until his death. Ownership of the channel passed to Thompson's wife Janae after his death in August 2019.
