Daniel Scott Zahller "Dan" Brown (born May 15, 1990) is an American vlogger and discussion host, under the YouTube alias Pogobat. Brown has been noted in the media for his newly and widely viewed videos, focusing mainly on how-to videos as well as current events discussion and comedy. Brown is also the founder of the Pogopalooza - the annual world championship of the sport of stunt pogo - which he founded at the age of 14.
On August 2, 2010, Dan launched a project entitled "Dan 3.0," in which viewers would suggest tasks for him to complete, and therefore the viewer would run his life. On April 1, 2011, Dan quit the project for personal reasons, and moved on to vlog/news show "Delicious Steak," which originally aired from July 12, 2011 – May 6, 2012. On May 6, 2012 Dan released a video called "The Last Episode Of Delicious Steak", in which he explained that he is no longer committed to a "show", but rather making videos as a hobby.
Since May 2012, he has reinvented his video style to heavily focus on current affairs and political or moral debates, utilizing his viewership to provoke and take part in discussions, including topics such as gun law,healthcare, drug legislation, same-sex marriage, and online media. The reaction to this change has been positive.
Dan was a contestant on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". He walked away with $5,000 after getting the $10,000 question wrong
