How Dream's Success
Has Become His Own Detriment
"Come on, we gotta keep the light burning… Come on and Dream baby Dream…"
Dream is one of the most successful creators of the 2020s so far. Amassing nearly 20M subscribers and receiving more than 10M views on every single Minecraft Manhunt video to date. Dream has exploded into stardom and has become a modern celebrity - surpassing the title of "Internet Celebrity" - amongst the likes of James Charles and PewDiePie.
While Dream's unfathomably large success sounds like a Utopian Dream, there are also many downsides to it that I intend to cover throughout this video.
Not only has Dream been called out for the most petty reasons - such as making an edgy joke or having "Bad Music" - but he has also indulged himself in commonly disliked ideologies such as stan culture.
From Cheating in a Minecraft Speedrun
all the way to owning a low efficiency Merchandise Company - Dream
has experienced it all.
Today I intend to document Dream's fantastic rise to fame, and how that has unfortunately been warped into something akin to a Nightmare, as opposed to a Dream…
