YouTube sensation David Dobrik has confirmed when he will be returning to making videos on the platform during his appearance on the Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show.

With most of the world currently in lockdown due to the ongoing global health crisis, many have found themselves unable to keep up with their usual daily antics.

This couldn’t ring more true for David Dobrik, whose YouTube vlogs are often based around himself and his friends hanging out around Los Angeles, meeting strangers and just generally being extremely sociable.

Dobrik and his housemates, Ilya and Natalie, have slowed down on the content in recent months.

As a result, Dobrik has had to put his vlogs on the back burner for now and, at the time of writing, has uploaded just one video to his main channel since March 11.

This is something Jimmy Fallon brought up when interviewing Dobrik, and we got our first inkling yet of when he will be bringing the vlogs back.

While explaining how he hasn’t wanted to post “watered-down” versions of his vlog, Dobrik confirmed that he has set himself a timeline for when he will start posting again.

“I actually set a goal for myself,” he told Fallon. “There’s a bar down the street that we always go to and, once it’s reopened at full capacity, I will start making videos again.”

Fans of Dobrik’s will assume – and seemingly is confirmed later by Fallon himself – that the bar is Saddle Ranch, where he and his friends regularly hang out and is the backdrop for many of their videos.

This will be good news for Dobrik fans, who can at least now keep an eye out for when they should expect a notification to pop up from YouTube to say that he’s uploaded again.

That said, it’s not easy to predict when this is going to occur, so it could be a matter of days or a matter of months before we see David posting regularly once again.

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.
