❝ this is the most fun we've ever had. ❞

.: q&a :.
‹ who are dan & phil? ›
dan & phil are two youtubers who have been active on the site together since 2009 and 2006, respectively. they met on the internet and then arranged a real life meeting on october 19, 2009 and they've been friends since.
‹ what are they like? ›
dan is the darker one of the two, and he appreciates sardonic humour and frequently makes jokes about existential crises, depression, etc. due to the fact that he has depression himself, but makes jokes about it to lighten the mood. he likes memes.
phil is a lot more optimistic and bright, and he likes vibrant colours, houseplants, animals and positivity. opposites attract!
!! do be warned, there are some not-so-family friendly themes on their channels !!
‹ what's phan? ›
phan is the romantic - or platonic - shipping of dan & phil, which peaked in 2012 and freaked everyone out. however, the fandom itself is referred to as the 'phandom', and fans are 'phans', which have nothing to do with the ship!
‹ what's 'phil is not on fire'? ›
phil is not on fire, or 'pinof', is the roughly-annual q&a series that they make together. every video features them with cat whiskers drawn on their faces with a sharpie. the series began on october 25th, 2009, six days after they met in real life, so it's also a friendiversary for them!
they have two books called "the amazing book is not on fire" or "tabinof" (2015) which is basically a summary of their channels, and "dan and phil go outside" or "dapgo" (2016) which is a photo album of their 2016 world tour "the amazing tour is not on fire".
‹ what video do you recommend i watch first? ›
the first video i ever watched by dan was 'how not to stay cool' published on july 19th, 2013 (the year i got into the phandom!) with a phil cameo. you can watch that one first if you want, but it contains some language.
i recommend their phil is not on fire videos (and they do contain language!)
any more questions? comment and we'll do our best to answer them!
