|“||Wanna Join My Free Giftcard Giveaway?||”|
Dylan Adam McEvoy (born March 14, 2003), known as Durv was a YouTuber from Manchester, England who is known for prank calls, bottle flip 'content' and clickbaiting everyone. Other than that, he makes Boss Baby videos, fidget spinner videos and other content.
Durv was heavily criticized for using clickbait to gain views and subscribers. He made his channel so he could get money by using Clickbaits. Although he still does it, not much has changed from where he had began. He has also been criticised for starting several fake gift card giveaways by saying "Wanna join my free gift card giveaway?". Many of his videos had a large number of dislikes because of this and has become a meme now.
It is said that Durv's YouTube channel contained bots. The reason for this being he always got the same estimated amount of likes and dislikes per video and his comment section mainly contained nonsense such as "I subscribed", "i want iphone 7 📱" and other gibberish. There were also no hate comments, and they could not be found later, despite the amount of people who hated him. He admitted to use clickbait to earn money and lying to his subscribers about a free gift card giveaway.
On May 31st 2017, Durv's channel officially got terminated for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines (Spam & Misleading content)
On June 3rd, 2017, he posted a link to his video on another channel, Clash Trends further violating YouTube's community guidelines on his Twitter account. As soon as more people started to find out he was back, he deleted all of his videos on that account.
On June 6th, 2017, he posted a YouTube video on his brother's account (Finnerz) where he talked about how he got terminated from YouTube because of the (supposedly) "violence" in his videos. He also stated that his free gift card giveaway was legitimate by showing evidence.
Finnerz later fully gave his channel to Durv. The channel now has been officially named “Durv” and the about page description says this:

On June 26th 2017, an unknown individual (who wishes his or her name to be withheld) exposed Durv of his gift card giveaway by pointing out the intro that he used at the beginning of the video, with the infamous line, "Wanna join my free gift card giveaway?" He noticed the XBOX Live gift card design and noticed that it did not look like the XBOX Live gift card design of 2017. This individual then started to notice that other card designs were also older then what they are now. This proved that the gift card giveaway was certainly fake. Other points that could expose Durv more is how he called his giftcard giveaway a "500 dollar (383 pounds) giftcard giveaway" in one of his videos (where he "face-timed" the Boss Baby), despite living in the United Kingdom (which the country's currency is the pound).
