Danz Newz (real name Daniel Gidlow) is a YouTube game commentator and main member of The Creatures. He is known for his impressions of various people and his skills on a Halo Mongoose vehicle. He mostly plays with Kootra and Nova.
Danz Newz's works provide examples of:
- Catch Phrase: Brings up "Papa Rick's Crispy Chicken" quite a bit, mostly in the Hershel's Land series.
- Early Installment Weirdness: In his early days on YouTube, he was known as "Ghost of Danz Newz," and people would call him "Ghost" for short instead of "Danz" or just "Dan" like they do now.
- Running Gag: In his Grand Theft Auto IV series he would often sing or shout the chorus of Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise" before blowing himself or someone else up.
- Xtreme Kool Letterz: This originated from Dan creating a news blog when he was 12. He wanted to call it "Dan's News" but it was already taken. So he changed the name to "Danz Newz" and it stuck ever since.
