Dream’s Face Reveal


Dream, a formerly faceless content creator with over 40 million combined followers, recently conducted a face reveal. 

Dream is an ex-Minecraft speedrunner who saw a rapid rise to fame in early 2020 as a result of his impressive plays in “Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter” and the interesting story line presented in his “Minecraft Unsolved” series. 

With all his newly acquired clout, Dream’s face reveal would’ve already been a viral event; nevertheless, he decided to organize a Twitter campaign to generate even more hype. During this campaign, he had other popular influencers, such as Hasan “Hasanabi” Piker, KSI, Mark Rober, as well as many others post videos of themselves Facetiming Dream. 

With these reactions, Dream generated a lot of hype regarding his face reveal. Popular streamer, Ludwig “Ludwig” Ahgren, had his peak viewership of all time simply waiting for the face reveal to happen. 

After Dream’s face reveal, he received ridicule on Twitter, with comparisons being drawn to Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek and the troll face. #PutTheMaskBackOn was also trending.

On the broader scale, this highlights the radically differing views that are present on the internet today. One side of the internet is supportive of Dream while the other side is getting #PutTheMaskBackOn trending. 

Dream is by no means an uncontroversial figure. On December 11, 2020, moderator Geosquare released a video titled “Did Dream Fake His Speedruns – Official Moderator Analysis”. The video discloses Speedrun.com’s Minecraft moderation team’s investigation as well as its findings, and they concluded that Dream’s speedrun had a 1/7.5 trillion chance of legitimacy.

So my beloved reader, what do you think? Should he put the mask back on, or keep it off?
