Danny Gonzalez (born June 12, 1994 (1994-06-12) [age 25]) is an American comedy and commentary YouTuber, initially best known for his presence on the now-deceased app, Vine, where he accumulated over 2.8 million followers. He currently lives in Illinois with his wife Laura.

Career

Danny's career began in 2013 when he started on Vine, a popular 6-second video sharing app. His first post, “Target headphones like what’s up” did not launch him into immense popularity. In fact, it was only created as a way for him to test out the app and see how it worked.

Danny started making more vines and gained more and more followers. Through his Vine career, Danny collaborated with some big Viners including BigNik, Esa Fungtastic, Brennen Taylor, Thomas Sanders, and more. Danny also participated in Camp Unplug, a short movie about a camp. Danny often created special effects for other Viners' videos.[1]

In 2014, while he was still on Vine, Danny started making YouTube videos. When Vine shut down, Danny had about 2.8 million followers. He turned to YouTube and worked on his channel there. Inspiring lots of young creators like Baris da gamer[1]


Danny tried lots of video ideas to get to where he is today. His most popular video series on his channel is called I Talk About A Thing.[2] Before he came up with that he tried Skits, and We Made A ____.[3][4] Another one of his most popular series is Music and it's full of all his music posted on YouTube. His most recent song is "Help Let Me Go".[5]

The videos that launched Danny into immense popularity are his Troom Troom reaction videos. They took him from around 100,000 subscribers to 1 million subscribers and to where he is today.

Appearance

Danny is known for his fluffy curly brown hair and green-blue eyes, which frequently match his shirts.

Fan Base

Greg is the name of Danny Gonzalez’s fanbase. He thought of this when he was making fun of Jake Paul's Litmas video. He often states that their rival fanbase is Craig. Craig are the people that don't trust Danny enough to believe him when he says Greg are the fastest growing army on YouTube. This is Danny's explanation of Greg: WHY DO I CALL MY FANS GREG? Greg is the strongest family on the internet, we're the fastest growing channel on YouTube, and we make fire content. So, instead of making up some pun using my name and calling my fans that, I decided to use a different name entirely. A name so strong, haters tremble when it is spoken. WE ARE GREG. AND WE ARE TAKING OVER THE INTERNET. And all you have to do to join is hit subscribe and turn on notifications.

Controversy

BillionSurpriseToys

On September 1, 2018, Danny Gonzalez uploaded a video called "Unintentionally Terrifying Children’s Videos". In this video, he makes fun of the Johny Johny meme from the BillionSurpriseToys channel. Somehow, his video was unaffected by the mass DMCA takedowns being issued by the channel.

On October 23 of the same year, Danny created a second video called "Papa Has Been Replaced", where he reacts to BillionSurpriseToys doing comedic commentary on how the "Papa" character has been replaced with a different father. At the end of the video, Danny made a comedic music video as goodbye/tribute for the Papa character.

BillionSurpriseToys then filed a false copyright claim against Danny, ironic since he was boasting about the video not having been taken down at the start of the video. "Papa Has Been Replaced" was took down and put back up several times back and forth, before finally being put back up after Danny tweeted about considering "looking into his legal options.” Finally, on November 2, 2018, when Papa Has Been Replaced was safely up, Danny made a final video called They [BillionSupriseToys] Took My Video Down So I Fought Back In the Most Petty Way" where Danny summed up the events of the controversy.

Troom Troom

On January 21, 2018, Danny posted a video called "The Worst Pranks Ever (Troom Troom Reaction)" During this video, he makes fun of the pranks by Troom Troom, a craft channel on YouTube. Since then he has made four more videos about Troom Troom, "More Of The Worst Pranks (Troom Troom Reaction part 2)", "Trying Troom Troom's Awful Pranks", Trying Troom Troom's Awful Pranks 2", and "Trying Troom Troom's Awful Pranks 3".

Sometime before he records "Troom Troom's Awful Crafts 2" on December 22nd, 2018, Danny finds out that Troom Troom has been "shading" him. In his words, "I've been beefing with this ukranian craft channel for months and I didn't even know it!" Troom Troom made a character called Stevie Gonzalez that acts like a jerk to shadow Danny. However, Danny didn't react to this much and basically ignored it.

Music

Danny has created many comedic songs like "Hop out of the whip" and "Spooky boys" and many songs for various videos like "SLIME" for the video titled "The Weirdest Children's Channel On YouTube " and "I'm gonna kill Santa Claus" for the video titled "The Worst Christmas Movie Ever Made". He even gave himself a singer name: Young Face (a joke towards how people mistake him for a younger age due to his baby face).

In April 2019, Danny announced that he is releasing an EP called Bump This with 6 comedy songs on April 26th. In the video "Bad Boys on Tik Tok" he debut the first music video to one of the songs Bad Boy.[6]

On May 15, 2019, Bump This hit 1 million streams on Spotify. 

Since then, Danny has released 'Help Let Me Go', 'Dab On The Haters', 'IHATEMETOO', and 'We Are Not The Same Person'.[7][8]

Family

Danny has always been pretty quiet about his family but he has told us some information. In one of his old music videos, the credits mention that his parents names are Dave and Judi Gonzalez. According to The Netline, Danny attended and graduated from a school in Atlanta, Georgia and went to Georgia Institute of Technology graduating with a degree in computer science.[9]

We don't know much else about his family or childhood life, but we do know that he started editing videos when he was thirteen, in 7th grade. That means he's been editing for thirteen years.

Danny is currently married to Laura Fuchel as of July 1st, 2017. Laura is very supportive of Danny's career and appears in some of his videos: for example, "My Girlfriend Does My Makeup," where Laura does Danny's makeup for a different video about his pimple.

Some fans have speculated that the couple has two children because of one of Laura's instagram posts on February 6, 2018[10] and one of Danny's instagram posts on February 5, 2018.[11] However, the kids in those pictures are their nephews, Laura's sister's sons. There are pictures of the children with their real parents visible on the fridge in Danny's instagram video immediately preceding the post linked above.[12] There is lots of other easily searchable evidence proving the identity of Laura's sister and the identities of her sons; we will not include any of their names here for privacy reasons.
