YouTuber Seth Everman just broke a YouTube record.

Everman wrote the first-ever comment to reach 1 million likes. He left the comment on Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” music video five months ago.

His comment simply read, “i’m the bald guy.”

On Saturday, Everman realized that his comment had reached the milestone and posted on Twitter to celebrate his new world record.

“World record! first youtube comment ever to hit 1 million likes. we did it gamers,” he tweeted.

He then asked YouTube to award him for his achievement.

“Hello @YouTube i would like one golden comment award please,” he tweeted.

People on Twitter quickly sent Everman their congratulations, with most noting how “legendary” this is.

“That’s bonkers!” Twitter user @jacksepticeye wrote.

Some even pointed out that, based on the screenshot Everman posted online, he appeared to have disliked his own comment.

“We did it, Mr. Stark- Waitaminute *looks closer* Seth why’d you dislike your own comment,” Twitter user @BlueSpringPriv wrote.

Meanwhile, people flocked to the music video on YouTube to see the 1 million-liked comment for themselves.

“Who else came here to see the 1m liked comment,” one asked.

“Who’s here to see ‘I’m the bald guy’ comment?” another questioned.

“Who else is here from JT telling us to like Seth’s comment?” someone else commented.

Others came with praise for Everman, and even themselves.

“The most dangerous man of 2019 is Seth Everman,” one user commented. “So guys, we did it. The comment has hit 1M likes,” another wrote.

Everman seems to be a Billie Eilish fan, even making a YouTube video about “bad guy,” in which he tries to recreate the song from scratch. The video has nearly 40 million views.

Everman now joins a long list of others who have broken YouTube records. PSY’s “Gangnam Style” was the first YouTube video to reach 1 billion views. And YouTube’s own “YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind” video is the most disliked video on the platform.
