Jay Holland[citation needed] (born: June 3, 1997 (1997-06-03) [age 27])[citation needed], better known online as Dolan Dark (formerly known as BlackIceShredder), is a YouTuber from New Zealand who joined YouTube on February 24, 2011. He first gained popularity for his montage parodies. He also has another channel called Dolan Darker, a channel especially for lower effort views, where he uploads much more commonly. According to his Twitter, he runs 10 separate YouTube accounts.

About[]

Dolan created his channel in 2011, but he did not upload any videos until 2013, his first being an EDM remix of Shrek. He went on to gain popularity through MLG montage parodies like fellow YouTuber Pyrocynical. Shortly after the decline of MLG in 2015 he went to begin making general meme videos. In 2016 he began uploading regularly on his second channel Dolan Darker. These videos were quick to make and he was posting them almost daily, compared to Dolan Dark where he would only upload once every few months.

He had stated in a podcast that he had studied Earth Science before switching to Computer Science. He had also stated in a commentary video on Pyrocynical's channel that he attended the same university as the then-Prime Minister of New Zealand's son, completing his degree sometime around 2016-2017.

He supposedly resides in New Zealand, though, has made numerous YouTube comments about having moved to Australia. His current whereabouts are unconfirmed. He is more active on Twitter than any other social media. Little else is known about his personal life.

Recently, he has been on TBH, a podcast with Colossal Is Crazy, Pyrocynical and Nerd City.

Other channels[]

Dolan Darker[]

Dolan Darker is his second channel, specially made for shitposts. Nearly all the videos on this channel are less than a minute long and also have a large variety of memes, which most of them are created together to make a video on the main channel as a series called "Memes". However, some recurring memes include songs by Minecraft Awesome Parodys and Vsauce.

Dolan Darkest[]

Dolan Darkest is a third channel, which was relatively unknown for 2 months since its creation in March 2017, due to it only having one video. At the time, the channel had barely surpassed 500 subscribers. Later, when more videos were uploaded, it grew to over 172,000 subscribers. Most of the videos on this channel were gaming videos, often with Pyrocynical and Grandayy.

On June 30, 2023, Dolan Darkest started the series "SlopLIVE" - a parody of Pyrocynical's PyroLIVE channel - featuring short-form commentary videos similar to those Pyrocynical or Cr1tikal make, but with runtimes typically around the 1 minute mark or shorter as opposed to 8+ minute videos.
