An Afternoon with Dan TDM
We visited as a guest of YouTube
My son has never played Minecraft, but he sure loves watching one of his favorite YouTube stars Dan TDM play the game. Over the past couple of years, he has been watching his YouTube channel, and I didn’t realize how big of a fan he was until we got an invite to go to YouTube Space in LA to meet Dan TDM.
When I mentioned the invitation to my son, he nearly passed out with excitement. He circled the date on my calendar and started counting down the days until he was going to meet his favorite YouTube star. I waited until we were on our way to LA to surprise my son with the news that he was going to get a one on one meet and greet with Dan TDM and have the opportunity to talk with him about his new YouTube Red Originals series Dan TDM Creates a Big Scene.
We arrived at YouTube Space in LA, and we walked into the building. Pillows were covering the floor for children to get comfortable watching the first episodes of DanTDM Creates a Big Scene, Kings of Atlantis, Hyperlinked and Fruit Ninja: Frenzy Force. All the kids took their seats on the floor, and the episodes began to play on the big screen. The kids were cheering and clapping at the end of each episode; they loved them that much.
During the screenings, I took my son upstairs to a private room where he got to meet Dan TDM. He was so excited that he started to tear up – it was really cute. During his time with Dan TDM, he talked to him about his YouTube channel, what it was like to be a YouTube sensation, and then got an autograph. My son said that it was one of the best moments of his life.
Following the screenings, everyone lined up to get a picture with Dan TDM. While everyone waited for their chance to meet him, the kids were playing VR, using a claw machine, and playing lawn games. It was a relaxing and fun afternoon that our entire family enjoyed.
The new YouTube Red Originals series are perfect for children of all ages to enjoy. All series’ will be available on YouTube and the YouTube Kids app for YouTube Red subscribers!
