Hugely popular gaming and horror narrator YouTuber Corpse Husband has hit the crazy milestone of five million subscribers on his YouTube channel, with his fan base growing quicker by the day.

Corpse Husband turned out to be one of the unexpected breakout stars of 2020 in the social media world. He started his channel back in 2015 primarily narrating spooky stories with his now iconic deep voice, but surged into viral fame when he began playing Among Us.

Notably Corpse has not yet revealed his face, previously saying that “I can’t imagine my physical appearance being out there” on top of the crazy stuff that goes on behind the scenes.

However, the YouTuber has definitely had some fun with his fans regarding his lack of face reveal, instead choosing to reveal a single strand of hair, and his hands. One dedicated fan even got a tattoo of the hair to show her appreciation for Corpse.

Now, to his disbelief and the sheer delight of his fans, Corpse Husband has hit 5,000,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel.

In a tweet that shared a screenshot of the moment his subscriber count ticked over to the milestone number, he said: “I’m in disbelief. IDK how I got here but I’m endlessly grateful and will keep trying my absolute best.” He also sent a caring message to his followers to “please take care of yourselves.”

His followers flooded the tweet replies with comments praising him for his hard work, and congratulating him on the huge accomplishment.

Even Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson put in a word, saying “5% of the way!”

Corpse was the winner of Mr Beast’s Twitter contest where whoever could ratio his tweet the hardest would win $10,000, beating a BTS fan account to top spot – though the race was extremely close.

The milestone has certainly come as great news for fans and the creator, and it looks as though Corpse Husband’s following will only continue to grow.

Dan & Phil are one of YouTube’s most popular duos and OG content creators — but while Phil has been fairly active on the platform, Dan mysteriously went quiet, only reappearing on the site after a year of radio silence.

British YouTube duo Daniel Howell & Phil Lester have garnered a massive fanbase ever since they began creating videos in 2006, hailed for their relatable sense of humor and long-lasting friendship.

Last year, Howell uploaded a video that quickly rose to the top of YouTube’s trending page, simply titled, “Basically, I’m Gay.”

The 45-minute long, soul-baring video featured a sit-down with Dan’s fans, where he discussed his sexual orientation and gave advice to those in his audience who may be discovering their own identities.

However, the YouTuber went quiet shortly thereafter and hadn’t uploaded or appeared in a video for an entire year until January 4, 2021, when he sat down beside Phil in a joint upload to discuss his whereabouts.

“As you know, I have clearly taken a break from regular YouTube uploads,” he explained. “This was an emotional and spiritual and personal growth journey that I chose to be on, that, you know… the gay video, everything else, I really felt like I hadn’t really had time to ask: ‘Who am I? What do I want? What am I doing? Why?’ And I’m in that period.”

That being said, it wasn’t as if Dan hadn’t planned to put out some projects last year; according to the YouTuber, “There were supposed to be a couple of things, and then 2020 happened.”

The chaos of 2020 and his own self-discovery weren’t the only reasons he’s been absent, though, with both he and Phil revealing they’ve been busy moving into a new home of their own design.

They don’t plan on doing a house tour anytime soon though, in an effort to protect their privacy — but it seems like their fans are sated enough after Dan finally made an appearance with Phil after an entire year relative inactivity.

Thus far, Dan has been met with an outpouring of support from his viewers, who can’t wait to see what this year has in store for him.
