Guinness World Records recently met up with the young British gamer to chat to him about his journey from working at a supermarket to becoming a famous record-breaking YouTuber.
Making new videos for his YouTube channel is now a full time job for Dan!
We asked Dan TDM why he loves Minecraft so much: “Minecraft is special because you can make it any game you want. You can build, go on adventures, load other people’s worlds… It’s just a game that does everything.”
He was excited to find out he would be appearing in the book: “It feels amazing to be in the Guinness World Records books. To have them as a kid every year and then actually be in one is mind-blowing – it’s absolutely crazy,” he said.
