DREAM fans are wondering if the YouTuber is related to another internet star after showing his face for the first time.
The Twitch player unmasked himself from millions on Monday after years of hiding.
“What can I do?” he said in a video.
“Do I just rip off the plaster and turn around?”
After the big moment, fans couldn’t help but notice a resemblance to Shane Dawson.
Dawson, 34, is also a famous YouTuber — albeit with a controversial past.
“Why does Dream look like Shane Dawson?” asked one user.
“DREAM WAS SHANE DAWSON ALL THIS TIME,” said another.
A third added, “Nah no way does Dream really look like Shane Dawson’s forgotten half brother.”
Dream also revealed in his 5-minute video that his real name is Clay.
He explained that he made the decision to show his face as his gaming buddy GeorgeNotFound is moving in with him.
“My goal was to just start doing things, get out there, meet creators, finally say hello to my friends, just get out into the world, be a real creator, be a person,” Dream told viewers.
“I got locked up… people (they) tried to lick my face, tried to figure out what I looked like… there’s too many, it’s a little too much.”
