Adam Dahlberg is a fun-loving YouTuber who spends most of his time in the euphoric world of Minecraft. He started off as a Let’s Play-type YouTuber for Runescape. This guy has apparently, built an army of so called ‘recruits’, who are his fans and follow his methods in playing Minecraft. Most of his videos are playthroughs of various mods which are available for the game. He also produces a lot of videos with his fellow YouTubers, at least one video per day is the current update frequency. He uses the name ‘SkythekidRS’ as his Minecraft alias while his YouTube channel’s name is ‘SkyDoesMinecraft’. Most of his social networking names start with the set prefix – ‘SkyDoes’. He usually opens his videos saying “Hey guys, Sky here for another...” and closes the video saying, “Anyway guys, I’m Sky and see you later recruits.” He’s the reason why gold ingots are now widely called ‘Budder’ in Minecraft. He has mentioned that he stole the name ‘Sky’ from his sister’s Runescape account.
The Meteoric Rise To Stardom
Adam Dahlberg was just another YouTuber back in 2011, who just wanted to watch videos which made him feel better.
