Daniel, also known online as SB737 (short for SonicBoom737), is a popular YouTuber for video games from England who specializes in speed runs of Sonic the Hedgehog and Minecraft. Although he mainly posts videos about Minecraft, he also frequently posts videos about other well-known video games, including Sonic the Hedgehog and Five Nights at Freddy's.
Following his success on YouTube, SB737 began showing off his gaming prowess on other social media sites like Twitch, where he established a following on the Penguincraft Minecraft server. SB737 has two accounts on Minecraft. His primary account is SB737, while his backup is EimaJolum (the villain from his Awesome World). Hypixel (Bedwars and Skyward), Skycade (Sky High series), and The Hive are the principal servers on which he has produced series (Droppers, Murder Mystery, and Hide and Seek).
On January 1, 2012, Daniel launched his primary YouTube channel. As he frequently shared his Sonic The Hedgehog speed running videos, it was originally going to be called SonicBoom, but at the time, YouTube’s username system only permitted a unique name. So when the name “SonicBoom737” was generated by YouTube, he thought it was cool and said it had a nice ring to it. He posted his first video on January 7, 2012. While also moving on to other games, such as New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he would always continue to publish his speed runs and world record videos on the Sonic the Hedgehog games.
“Sonic 2 - Emerald Hill Act 1 in 22 seconds (SB737 First Video)” is the first video uploaded by Daniel on his channel. In this video, he plays the first level of Sonic 2.
After he considered moving away from the Sonic games and expanding his channel by playing other games, his name would later be shortened to “SB737.” Daniel launched “SB’s Awesome World”, his first and longest-running Minecraft Let’s Play series on the Xbox, on October 28, 2014, after getting motivation from watching Minecraft YouTubers like Stampylonghead. His channel’s main focus would eventually shift to Minecraft. Daniel first used his penguin skin in episode 31 of his Minecraft series.
On November 9, 2013, Daniel opened a second channel, but it would never be used. He officially launched his second channel MoreSB to upload additional content on September 19, 2016. He uses this to play games that he likes but don’t perform well on his main channel. He primarily uploaded Sonic The Hedgehog videos, though he occasionally included other games as well.
SB Speedruns was founded on April 9, 2020. It was designed specifically for speedruns of Sonic the Hedgehog. With the 505th episode, Daniel concluded his Awesome World television series on November 18, 2020, on his main channel. Later, it continued on MoreSB, his second channel.
The abandoned channel was changed to SB737 Shorts on December 1, 2020, and it now features various outtakes and bloopers from his primary channel. In March 2021, SB737 joined the “Shady Oaks” SMP, which also included YouTube stars DanTDM, iBallisticSquid, and ThinkNoodles. On March 17, 2021, SB737 streamed his first game on Twitch. Daniel made a separate account, SB737 Live, just for uploading the best parts of his Twitch live streams.
