It's an urban legend.

The story of Herobrine.
Herobrine is the subject of an old scare-story, where a person with the default skin, and completely white eyes appeared in singleplayer games.

He is actually a retextured painting or iron door of the default skin with no eyes. This originated a long time ago, when a "creepy-pasta" was made about Herobrine.
The Hoax

The creator of the stream "Brocraft" who goes by the name "Copeeland", along with his friend, "Patimoose" staged the whole hoax. Herobrine was then introduced in the Brocraft stream (at 20:45).

There was another video where herobrine was in the middle of Patimoose's lava field. Patimoose then went back up the stairs he went down. Saved and quit. He came back 10 minutes later, where there was another Brocraft stream. Patimoose then told his wife he was "trolling", which strengthened the fact that the Herobrine incidents were all staged

Most of the video consists of Patimoose getting reactions from everyone that was in chat. At the end of the video Patimoose fakes his game crashing.

After his game "crashed", all members then saw a page featuring the default Minecraft face with real eyes in the place of the normal block eyes.

When viewing the page's source, there is a jumble of characters and letters. after removing all non-alphabet characters, the following message is revealed.
It has been reported that some victims of torture, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being tortured. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP.

The message keeps telling the viewer to "wake up", implying they're living in a fantasy, and this text hidden in the page is their "note".

There are a couple theories on how they created this prank. One theory is that it was a re-textured painting, while another theory is Patimoose and Copeeland altered the iron door texture.
Future update

Notch has posted on twitter about the subject of Herobrine.
RavenBurga Is "he" a real entity ingame or is it just a successful_troll.swf?
Notch It's not real. =) But it might be soon!


Although this confirms that there is no Herobrine, it suggests that Notch plans to add him as an entity in the near future, presumably acting in a similar way to the faked Herobrine.

At Minecraftcon 2010, Notch confirmed Herobrine will be in the game, probably in a far future seecret friday update.

Due to increased drama surrounding the Herobrine page, a minepedia moderator asked notch over IRC if herobrine would be added:
12:25 Kizzycocoa [...] is there any confirmation on his upcoming existence in MC?
12:27 Notch i have no plans of adding herobrine as is, but I do like the rumors, haha

Despite all confirmations, it seems notch has decided against adding Herobrine. However, the fact that "as is" is said suggests that something like Herobrine will be added, although Notch later stated that he has no plans of adding Herobrine as of October 19, 2010.
8:09 AM Oct 20th Kizzycocoa [...] the entire community is getting frustrated by the hero-spam
8:56 AM Oct 20th Notch i have no plans of adding herobrine.

While many groups disagree over Herobrine's existence, the majority opinion is that he does not exist. Although an entity like Herobrine may very well appear in Minecraft due to the prank, and likely when it is least expected.

Was just reading about Herobrine on minecraftwiki and apparently Notch intends to add him to the game at some point.
