Popular YouTuber Dream has for years been known to his fans only as a cartoon smiley face.
The Minecraft gamer, with 30 million subscribers online, only ever uses his voice in streams – albeit occasionally appearing on camera wearing a mask.
But all that looked set to change after his friends – and other YouTubers – posted videos apparently reacting to Dream without his mask. He then posted a video revealing his face for the first time.

Clay (born August 12, 1999), known online as Dream, is an American YouTuber and Twitch streamer who is known primarily for creating Minecraft content.
Dream gained substantial popularity in 2019 and 2020; he is well known for his YouTube series “Minecraft Manhunt”. He was also well known for his Minecraft speedruns, in which he was accused of cheating in late 2020. Dream later admitted to using game modifications, but maintained that he used them unintentionally during his single-player speedruns, intending for them to only apply during his multiplayer Minecraft Manhunt videos. Content created in the Dream SMP, Dream’s invite-only survival multiplayer (SMP) Minecraft server that stars content creators engaged in roleplay, has also attracted considerable attention.
As of September 10, 2022, his seven YouTube channels have collectively reached over 41.96 million subscribers and over 3.29 billion views, and his two Twitch channels have collectively gained 7.01 million followers and 19.01 million views. YouTube awarded Dream the Streamy Award for Gaming in both 2020 and 2021.
Dream created his YouTube account on February 8, 2014, and started to upload content regularly in July 2019. The oldest video on Dream’s account that is still accessible involves him playing the game Minecraft poorly on purpose in order to “trigger” viewers. As of December 2021, the video has amassed 16 million views.
In July 2019, Dream figured out the seed of a Minecraft world YouTuber PewDiePie was playing on by using reverse engineering techniques that Dream learned from online forums. In November 2019, Dream uploaded a viral video titled “Minecraft, But Item Drops Are Random And Multiplied…” that has amassed 49 million views as of January 2021. In January 2020, Dream uploaded a video in which he and another YouTuber, GeorgeNotFound, connected an Arduino board to an electric dog collar, which emitted an electric shock whenever a player lost health in Minecraft.
In December 2020, in place of their annual YouTube Rewind series, YouTube released a list of their top-trending videos and creators. On the U.S. list, YouTube ranked Dream’s “Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters GRAND FINALE” video as the number seven “Top Trending Video”, and ranked Dream as the number two “Top Creator” and number one “Breakout Creator”. A livestream by Dream on YouTube in November 2020 with about 700,000 peak viewers was the 6th highest viewed gaming stream of all time as of January 2021. A December 2020 Polygon article stated that “2020 has been a tremendous year for Dream”, describing him as “YouTube’s biggest gaming channel of the moment”.
In a January 2021 article, Steven Asarch of Business Insider attributed Dream’s growth during 2019 and 2020 “to his understanding of the YouTube algorithm”, noting that “[h]e puts his keywords in the right places, capitalizes on trends, and makes thumbnails that fans want to click on“.
Dream is a member of the “Dream Team”, along with fellow YouTubers Sapnap and GeorgeNotFound. The group frequently collaborate to create new content. Dream also had a friendly rivalry with fellow Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade before his death, as they each had a contested recognition for the title of “best Minecraft player”
Public image and controversies
On January 1, 2021, Dream was doxed. On January 7, Dream addressed the doxing and denied accusations made against him by his ex-girlfriend. On March 25, 2021, a clip resurfaced online from a now private video showing a Minecraft account with the username “Dream” saying the word “nigger”. The clip garnered attention on Twitter and Reddit. Dream posted on Twitter in response, clarifying that the person in the video is not him.
Dream had streamed multiple times on different platforms during the month of June, including at least four streams on Discord, where he encouraged fans to subscribe and donate to his Twitch channel. On June 30, 2021, Dream announced that he had donated US$140,000 (US$90,000 from fan contributions and US$50,000 from the Dream Team) to The Trevor Project, an LGBT youth charity. In response to fellow YouTuber Technoblade’s cancer diagnosis, Dream donated US$21,409 to cancer research in late August 2021.
