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.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
