Dream, a legendary figure in “Minecraft,” finally shows his face
Despite never playing Minecraft, I know who Dream is. Minecraft streamers and YouTubers are some of the most popular internet creators. Dream, who has never shown his real face to fans until tonight, may be the most popular.
Dream’s face reveal was a significant moment for his community and Minecraft. Dream has 5.6 million Twitter, 3.1 million Instagram, and 30.4 million YouTube followers. Ninja has 23.8 million in Fortnite.
Before this reveal, he facetimed several of his gaming pals for the first time, and they all posted their reactions to his face, but the audience reveal was delayed until tonight, and premiered on YouTube with 1.2 million people tuning in. 2022 celebrity
Few big YouTubers are anonymous. Corpse Husband is another gaming figure who has never purposefully shown his face, but Dream is the biggest. I remember when face reveals were prevalent on YouTube and Twitch before most broadcasters went live with boxes of themselves in the corner, but these days if you are streaming, you are definitely doing it with your own face, albeit not your own name. Vtubing, where users manipulate virtual avatars synced to their real-life movements, is an exception. It is “metaverse,” if you must.
Dream decided to do this now since one of his pals is leaving to America, and he is weary of being “bunked up.” It allows him to create more stuff and hang out with pals without secrecy or leaks. Being concealed this long must be exhausting. I do not envy a 23-year-old unveiling their face to 30 million people after years of conjecture, even if they are a good-looking youngster. We will watch what Dream does next and how often we see him in this new period.
