A YouTube celebrity and icon. He has risen in popularity over the past year, and has fans all over the world.

He is really just a regular guy, but he somehow has the ability to draw you in and keep you watching. His real name is Shane Yaw but uses the pseudonym(?) Dawson. He seems to have a somewhat dirty mind. This is to be expected from a 20somewhat man.

I guess he gets some money from YouTube cause his video quality and special effects have improved dramatically from his first videos. He has two channels, one for the main videos, released every Saturday, and one for vlogs.

His vids are comedic, and very entertaining. He is an admitted virgin, and denies being gay. At first it may seem like he is gay because of his looks(long, somewhat perfect hair, skinny, stylish) but if you watch his vlogs and videos alot you can see he is not. Some of his videos are serious however, like when he got fired from shmeany shmeag. (you'll get that if ur a fan lol) and when he talks about his enormous weight loss.

He has his haters, but who dosn't? He is 5th all time is subscriptions, behind nigahiga, fred, smosh, and universalmusicgroup. Hes collabed with alot of other YouTube stars. He is a part of The Station, but isn't as involved as he planned originally. He was voted Mr. YouTube in a poll conducted by whatthebuck. Does live shows, and is very involved with the fans

He seems to be a good guy, and always keeps his fans happy=)
Shane Dawson has two YouTube channels, facebook, myspace, and twitter pages and his own website.

Shane Dawson is the best fucking YouTuber of all fucking time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He make hilarious videos on his 3 channels: ShaneDawsonTV, ShaneDawsonTV2,and Shane. He might also be getting/has his own TV shown on a TV network.
Known as Shane, S-Deezy, Shanaynay, Aunt Hilda, Shane's Mom, Ned the Nerd, Paris Hilton, and others. His real name is Shane Yaw. The last name "Dawson" is a pseudonym, because whenever he was trying to get casted for movies,the directors would think he was chinese, and most movies dont have chinese people in them, so he wouldnt get casted.

A comedy guy that is very popular on youtube. He mixes raunchy comedy with thoughtful messages. He also uses alter-ego characters to play out stories. His characters include Shanyanay, Ned the Nerd, S Deezy, Aunt Hilda, Shane's mom, Emo shane, and Hodini. He uses the characters to put a spin on personal vlogging, and it's a nice blend. He is very good to his fans.

He is not emo, and he is not gay. But he does make a hot emo boy in his video "douchebag".

Shane Dawson is a straight christian, but he's open minded and friendly.
I just watched a Shane Dawson video!

Shane Dawson is the greatest!
