Well hello guys, gals, and all my non binary pals, today is the day where I talk about two people who are very important to me. Their names are Dan and Phil. Now, you may or may not have heard of them but for those of you who haven’t, here is a little inside scoop of their life and how they went from internet friends to internet famous.
Daniel James “Dan” Howell (born June 11, 1991) is a British video blogger. He is best known for his YouTube channel Danisnotonfire, which has reached over six million subscribers. He started making videos in 2009 when his internet friend (Phil Lester) talked him into it. Philip Michael “Phil” Lester (born January 30, 1987) is a British YouTuber and vlogger. He is also best known for his YouTube channel AmazingPhil. (totally check them out because they are super amazing). They also have two other channels which they share. One of them is DanAndPhilGames, which is a gaming channel where they sometimes are against each other. The other one is DanAndPhilCrafts which they made up for an April fools joke and now post on it every april 1st. They are so inspiring and creative. My two favorite quotes of all time were said by them.
“You are a human with one life and it is up to you to make it the best life you can” – Dan Howell
“It’s a good thing to be strange, normal ness leads to sadness” – Phil Lester
Dan and Phil have come a long way since 2009. They went from Skyping every night, to meeting, to creating this whole world of Dan and Phil which millions of girls and guys alike enjoy. They have accomplished so much in what seems like such a short amount of time but in reality, it has been 7 years. One of the very first major things they did together was have a radio show on BBC R1. They did skits and played cool music all while having fun being together. Another amazing thing that they did together was they got to interview a lot of popular artists when they went to the Teen Awards. They interview people like Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, and Fifth Harmony.
Not only did they have a radio show and met tons of cool people, but they wrote two books (one that isn’t even out yet), went on tour around the United States and Australia and wrote a song standing up for cancer. The world they have created has saved many people from diving into a deep dark hole of nothingness. They spread light onto things that go dark. That is why they are my heroes.
Down below, I put a video for one of their most recent videos called “Dan and Phil react to #DAPGO memes”. You will understand what it means if you watch it.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post and i can’t wait to write again. Peace:).
