A face reveal can be a massive turning point for a YouTuber, especially if it’s the first time they’ve ever shown their face in a video. Whether it’s to make a joke, show off their newfound confidence or just to get some karma, a lot of creators have done it over the years.
Stackswopo — also known as SauronWins — is a YouTuber and Twitch streamer who recently revealed his face in an impressive clip. The clip garnered 224,500 views on the streaming platform and made it to the top of LivestreamFail’s most popular posts of the month list.https://www.tiktok.com/@stackswopostreams/video/7202668796874591530?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc
The video is a great example of how the internet can be a force for good, and how creators can use social media to bring positive change to the world. In the clip, SauronWins shows off his long-haired, muscular physique to the soundtrack of Ghost in the Shell.
It took six months of streaming for SauronWins to build up his traction before he got this much attention. Despite being a relatively small channel, his followers instantly spiked by 180 when he showed off his new look.
Dream, a Minecraft live streamer who has spent years playing the game anonymously, has now revealed his face to an ecstatic audience of over 1.3 million. This has certainly been the most notable moment of his career to date, and people are awed by how he managed to keep it a secret for so long.
Stackswopo deserves a big round of applause for their bold move, and the fact that they’re also a talented video editor is just another bonus. Their adlibs and humour have helped them to become a huge success on both platforms.
The best face reveal videos on YouTube
There are a handful of Youtubers who’ve managed to surprise their fans with a fun and unique approach to their face reveal video. One storytime animator, Tabbes, opted to show off her wit in an elegant way, by calling out the viewers who would skip to the part about her face and then retweeting it in the comments.
The other was Scarce’s attempt at a funny face reveal. He did it by spending most of his time thinking about his face and trying to fix his camera while he did it. The strategy was a clever one, and the viral success it received helped to reaffirm his status as one of the most popular news Youtubers on the planet.
