Doesn’t look scary, does he?

You may know him as DrossRotzank or just DROSS.

This soft-spoken Venezuelan has built an audience of nearly 7 million subscribers on YouTube. How? He has a knack for collecting scary stories, creepy video clips, and eerie urban legends that’ll make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Then he posts videos describing them in chilling detail.

Basically, his videos are the type of unnerving stuff you tell yourself not to watch on YouTube before you go to bed – BUT YOU WATCH ANYWAY.

“The 7 most chilling ghosts captured on video”? IN. Who needs sleep?

He’ll also hit you with some stomach-churning trivia…

Like “The 7 most disgusting things found in McDonald’s food.” But it’s not just a quick rundown.

Dross built a loyal following with vivid storytelling – and a sinister voice – that turn ordinary stuff into something that’ll give you the creeps.

Watch a few Dross videos back-to-back before bed and you’ll end up like this:

It wasn’t always this way. Dross’ YouTube channel has evolved over the years.

Dross, an avid gamer – he was so hardcore he would post tips on GameFaqs – first began uploading screen recordings of himself playing video games. In his first video, Dross played I Wanna Be the Guy, an extremely difficult ’80s-inspired game that usually frustrates the living hell out of whoever plays it. Dross: “That’s the idea of the game. It’s so hard. I became famous because I would scream while I was playing it and people laughed.”

Dross’s “Coño!” scream has now become one of his signatures.

(Turn your headphones down. You’re welcome.)

Video games aren’t his only passion. Dross also has a deep love for horror movies…

Dross says Freddy Krueger and the Nightmare on Elm Street series is one of his favorites: “It was love at first sight.”

And naturally, Dross is also a huge fan of Creepypastas.

Creepypastas are brief ghost stories or horror-influenced urban legends that are passed around the Internet. Remember Slenderman, the creepy paranormal man that allegedly influenced two girls to stab their friend 19 times? Slenderman is a creepypasta.

So Dross began focusing on all things creepy.

And the more creepy videos he posted, the more his subscriber numbers increased. Now he shares his obsession with horror movies and creepypastas with millions of people on videos such as “Beth, the psychotic girl.”

What’s his formula? He doesn’t have one.

“People ask me a lot, ‘How do I become popular on YouTube?’ All I say is, ‘Look, dude. I cannot tell you.’ I think it is a matter of working hard and a little bit of luck as well. Do not ever trust anyone who tells you that they have the formula to become popular because that’s a big lie. That’s BS. It’s like alchemy. It just happens. I would tell them, my first advice, not just with YouTube but with life, is to do what you like. Do what you are passionate about and with a little luck, people will see you.”

And now, Dross has some new stories to tell on mitú.
