Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson may have given clues about his next major project, thanks to a mysterious new hashtag he used in a Tweet on November 25.

In the Tweet, Dawson asked his audience to recommend any “theories” they wanted him to discuss, instructing them to use the hashtag ‘#SDconspiracytheories.’

“Doing research 👁🔺,” Dawson wrote, using emojis to indicate the Illuminati symbol. “If there’s a theory you want me to discuss, Tweet it to me with #SDconspiracytheories.”

This isn’t the first time Dawson has considered conspiracy theories, either; this latest Tweet follows a previous post he made on November 13, where he toyed with the idea of creating a documentary series about extraterrestrials.


“I think I just found my next series,” Dawson wrote, linking a video of TIME’s investigation into UFO sightings by three Irish commercial pilots. “Aliens… please make contact and then come talk to me on my couch? 👽🙏🏻☕️”

Since posting the Tweet, Dawson has considered the scandal around SMOSH parent company Defy Media, the California fires, and even a documentary over YouTube’s widely-debated viewership algorithm – which Dawson humorously remarked could turn into a “thousand-part series.”

Dawson’s latest documentary series over controversial YouTuber Jake Paul received critical acclaim across the platform, breaking records and even receiving more views than major Netflix shows.


Dawson had likewise considered creating yet another installment to the Jake Paul series after his breakup with YouTuber Erika Costell.

However, it looks like Paul has already taken up that mantle, delving into their split of his own accord in his new series, ‘Jake Paul Uncut.’
