Superstar YouTuber David Dobrik surprised one of his older fans with an impromptu house call that shocked their entire family.

The Vlog Squad member has a massive audience, boasting over 15 million subscribers on YouTube alone, and it turns out that his viewership features people of all ages.

One particular viewer explained to Dobrik that her dad was a huge fan of his and was always asking about the latest video that’s been uploaded.

David Dobrik is one of the most popular YouTubers.

“So, since I’ve been home from college on winter break, every night my dad has come to me to watch a random David Dobrik vlog,” she explained.

That’s when she decided to work something out with the YouTuber – to get him to show up at her house to surprise her unsuspecting dad.

This led to Dobrik flying all the way out to New Jersey to surprise the whole family. Like she said in the now-viral TikTok video, her father was much more excited to see him than she was.

The family took a few pictures with the former Vine star and then sat down on the couch together to watch some of his old vlogs. This type of opportunity doesn’t present itself very often so it’s good to see the household was able to take complete advantage of it.

Acts like this are just one of the many reasons Dobrik’s popularity has skyrocketed. He’s also known for making wild videos that feature him doing a variety of wacky things like making Teslas fly or performing basketball trick shots with a jetpack.

No, Justin Bieber didn’t show up on the house call.

When he’s not making literal house calls like this,  he can often be seen handing out obscene amounts of cash to throngs of fans that chase him around whenever he’s spotted in public.

His philanthropy is also well-documented. While not at the insane levels of fellow YouTuber superstar MrBeast, Dobrik does more than his fair share of helping others out, such as when he gave $10,000 to a lucky college student to help with the cost of her studies.

Considering how fast his popularity continues to rise among the YouTube ranks, who knows what other surprises David has up his sleeve.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
