The year of 2015 was quite a good year for YouTubers, and Dan Howell (A.K.A. danisnotonfire) is no exception. With almost six million subscribers, his channel has been overwhelmingly successful. Danisnotonfire being a more comedic channel, he tends to get a lot of views as well as laughs. We decided to look back and see his top ten videos of 2015.
10. “7 SECOND CHALLENGE with Jennifer Lawrence Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth”
Dan (danisnotonfire) was lucky enough to be able to interview the stars of Mockingjay Part Two, and play the game he created with his best friend Phil (A.K.A. AmazingPhil) with them. Surprisingly, the stars had some difficulty with the game (even though the questions were regarding the movie they starred in, however seven seconds is a short amount of time to answer). The amusing interview and game-playing got 2,383,338 views along with 248,906 likes and 468 dislikes.
9. “Internet Support Group 5”
Being the nice and helpful guy Dan is, he asked viewers to provide him with their problems and he would give them advice in his video. Or, as Dan kiddingly says,”deals with strangers problems to avoid having to confront his own.” Dan published this video onto his channel on May 7th, 2015 and got 166,230 likes and 426 dislikes with 2,494,975 views.
8. “Internet Support Group 6”
