A YouTube account called “Dad, How do I,” in which an American dad offers advice on how to do things typically taught by someone’s father, has gone viral for his heartwarming content, becoming an overnight internet sensation.

It’s alleged that Rob Kenney, who runs the account, was left by his Dad at the age of 12, which serves as the inspiration for starting the account.

So far, ‘Dad, How Do I?’ has posted just 13 videos, but has managed to amass well over 1.2 million views since posting the first earlier in April 2020.

At the time of writing, Kenney’s latest video – simply saying thank you to the many thousands who have shared their admiration or gratitude for his content – is #7 on YouTube’s Trending page, with his name alongside the likes of KSI and Harry Styles.

In the video, he explains that many of the things he teaches on his YouTube channel are simply things he had to figure out growing up, acknowledging that others are in similar positions and might appreciate the help that he wasn’t able to get. Clearly, he’s right.

Thus far, the channel’s most-viewed video (not including the currently Trending one) is his second most recent one: “How to fix most running toilets.”

As with all his videos, this one does exactly what it says on the tin, and clearly has resonated with thousands of people across the globe, not just as an educational product but for what the channel itself represents.

Kenneys heartwarming content has clearly touched the hearts of many.

Since his first upload on April 2, Kenney has amassed almost 900,000 subscribers at the time of writing, quickly closing in on the incredible 1 million milestone. He has been making local news in Chicago and his story is spreading like wildfire and, in truth, you can’t say he doesn’t deserve all the love and respect he’s earned off the back of his efforts.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
