Daniel James Johnson (born March 20, 1986), better known as his username Danger Dolan, otherwise known as DD, TheDDGuides or DDTop20, is an Australian YouTuber. As of November 2017 he has over 5.5 million subscribers and over 1.4 billion views on his YouTube channel.
In 2015, he founded a company named after his YouTube channel, Planet Dolan PTY LTD. and created two new sub-channels: Danger Dolan Games (focusing on game-related videos, including the popular countdown, which was a renaming of his first channel, "TheDDGuides"), and Danger Dolan Movies, focusing on movie-related stuff. in September 2015, Super Planet Dolan was launched. This is an animated channel with the intention to target a younger demographic, where Dolan and Shima are animated characters.
Shortly after forming Danger Dolan Pty Ltd, the channel's undergoing some changes, most notably being that the narrator for the famous countdowns isn't just DD anymore, but there have been at least six additional people who have been known to narrate for him (most of which are currently still voicing), while he still narrates a good portion himself.
It's revealed in Dolan's Valentine's Day Special that he's going to marry his partner later in 2017.
Dolan married his partner (Golden_Gooby), another voice actor from his company on 3 March 2017 in this was shared through the teams twitter pages and instagram.
