Denis Kopotun (born: June 5, 1996 (1996-06-05) [age 23]), formerly DenisDaily, is a Canadian YouTuber born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada[1], who then moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, but currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada who mostly makes Roblox videos but has a few different videos such as Hello Neighbor and Happy Wheels. He also makes "Try Not To Laugh" and other challenge videos other than Roblox. Denis is passionate about making videos and has reached a lot in a year. His fans are super supportive and a lot of them have claimed they been around since Denis had under 1 million subscribers and are still travelling with him through his adventure.

The Pals

Denis originally owned a channel called KongoBoom and made Minecraft videos with Corl. But a later period of time Denis gave up on KongoBoom, that is until he met Alex, Sketch, and Sub and so together they created a collaboration channel called The Pals. The Pals consisting of members are:


Sir Meows A Lot

Sir Meows A Lot is Denis' channel's mascot. Denis really loves and adores cats. At, there is even a plush toy and a squishie for Sir Meows A Lot.[2] It was based on the Business Cat, a Roblox Shoulder accessory.[3]


Pinchy is another mascot that was based on Cool Crab Shoulder Friend, a Roblox Shoulder accessory. There is a plushie for it in the Denis merch.[4]


John Doe Trend

In March 2017, Denis made a few videos about a Roblox test account called John Doe claiming that he was a hacker and claimed that he would hack Roblox on March 18, 2017, but it was a rumor. He had nothing to do with creating the rumor, it was being created by the Roblox troll group known as the "Off Topic Forums". 


On September 25, 2017, Denis made a video about a website called Growbux, a website he created that gave users "free robux" after installing an app.[5] This caused lots of controversy in the Roblox community. Many accused him of exploiting kids by making them download applications that could contain malware and spyware, some developers of popular Roblox games (like Alexnewtron the creator of MeepCity) even said that he violates Roblox's terms of services which has a rule not to provide free robux though third-party websites, along with violating the COPPA guidelines (COPPA is a law that prevents websites from exploiting, scamming or collecting personal information from under 13s).[6] Denis has tried to deny the accusations, saying it's not a scam. He even called another person "ignorant" for being misinformed. This caused even more hatred for Denis. He eventually apologized and updated everything.

CorlHorl and Pals Disbanding

In February of 2019, CorlHorl was tweeting hurtful messages to a fan who almost committed suicide. Shortly after, Denis responded with kicking Corl out of the Pals and abandoning their 11-year friendship. Shortly after, Corl posted a picture with him holding a rifle, but then deleted it after concerns arose for Denis' health and the rest of the pals. Corl has quit everything ever since. Because of this, in July of 2019, Denis announced the Pals were disbanding into independent channels. Denis still uploads videos and tweets things to this day, while Corl has gone quite.

Other Channels

Denis made an account called Sir Meows A Lot for Sir Meows A Lot videos but wasn't uploading anything now.

Denis also made a Denis Minecraft for his Minecraft videos, and it was announced by Messenger Manatee in a video called "Message from Messenger Manatee"[7]
