Geno Samuel (born 1994[2]) is the pseudonym of a Lithuanian-born YouTuber and musician, known for creating the series Chris Chan: A Comprehensive History, as well as exploiting Chris's imagery by selling items themed after him without his permission.

On 20 September 2019, Chris DM'd Geno and asked his input on creating a "Genochu" TSSSF custom card featuring him. Geno politely declined the request, and Chris in turn thanked him for responding and said the offer would remain open if he changed his mind.[5]

In a 4 July 2022 letter, Chris mentioned a desire to collaborate with Geno, writing that he would contact Geno as soon as he was able;[6] the latter reacted with "Fuck." in a Kiwi Farms post on learning of Chris's comment.[7]

On 21 October 2023, Chris viewed and commented during a livestream on Geno's channel in which Geno played back old video of Chris.[8]

In 2023, Geno began offering knockoff Sonichu medallions for sale. His medallions also included a Certificate of Authenticity, in an imitation of Chris commonly including a Certificate in his own for-sale medallions. Chris criticized Geno's medallion product in a 14 December 2023 post, writing, "Geno. Don’t even with the “Certificate”. 3D Printed never surpasses the full soul effort in hand-crafting. It’s not funny."[9]

On 10 January 2024, Chris congratulated Geno on his wife's pregnancy.[10]

On 3 February 2024, Geno began advertising more Chris-themed items for sale, including a shirt with a "WANT WOMAN!" slogan on it. Chris objected to it, asking, "Can you please stop the “Want Woman” shirt?"[11] Geno appears unlikely to accede to Chris's request - in a r/ChrisChanSonichu thread about Chris's comment, Geno replied to another Reddit user that he was "watching the sales roll in" and defended offering the item for sale.[12]
