After many years of posting anonymously, Minecraft YouTuber Dream revealed his identity because there were “a little too many” suspicions about him. Dream, a 23-year-old content creator with more than 30 million subscribers, has only appeared once in public wearing a smooth, egg-colored, cheerful face mask.
Dream has been a household name among gamers for years, but they were unaware of its appearance. The primary focus of “Dream” is the video game Minecraft and on October 2, he made his face visible via a YouTube live stream.
According to forbes, 1.2 million viewers tuned in live and 14 hours later the video had over 18 million views. The dream that revealed his face was, to say the least, a major problem for his community and Minecraft as a whole. The dream has 5.6 million Twitter followers, 3.1 million Instagram followers and 30.4 million YouTube subscribers. For context, Fortnite’s Ninja has 23.8 million. dr. Disrespect has 4.1 million. Taylor Swift has 47.5 million. The dream is a big problem.
The BBC said in a report that Minecraft is the world’s best-selling video game and Dream’s most popular videos have been viewed tens of millions of times, one of which has been viewed more than 115 million times. “Hi, my name is Clay, also known as Dream,” he said in a five-minute video that has been viewed more than 12 million times.
“Maybe you’ve heard of me, maybe you haven’t. Maybe you clicked on this video out of sheer curiosity and you don’t care who I am. But now you’ve seen my face,” he said, showing his face first.
He went on to say that he has come under pressure from those who are curious about his appearance. “People have been trying to leak my face to find out what I look like. It’s too many, it’s a little too much,” he said.
