TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has made a secret new TikTok account, and somehow reached over 1 million followers in just one day.

For many budding TikTok creators, Charli D’Amelio is the epitome of success. She has become the platform’s most followed star, with almost 65 million followers at the time of writing, based almost entirely on her fun dance videos with her friends.

But, unbeknownst to anyone, Charli started up a brand new TikTok account and has already reached more followers than many of us could ever dream of.

Charli D’Amelio is one of the biggest rising stars on the internet.

Having recently left the popular Hype House collective with sister Dixie, Charli is clearly paving her own way and setting a path that thousands of young people are now going to be looking to emulate.

Sometimes, though, having so many eyes on you must be a daunting prospect – and that’s why Charli appears to have created what people believe is a secondary spam account, separate from her main one.

Under the guise of ‘Barley D’Amelio’, Charli takes on the role of her own twin sister who has been told that she is “not allowed TikTok,” building somewhat of a character rather than simply being Charli.

This was first shown in a video posted on June 17, under the username @barleydamelio12345432, which has already picked up 4.4 million plays and over 900k likes.

In the time since, she has posted seven more videos of herself dancing and speaking to her audience, keeping up the ‘Barley’ moniker throughout.

It’s unclear why Charli decided to make this new account, or why she chose to play a character rather than simply remain Charli, but obviously her fans are already loving it and have followed her in hordes – over 1 million, to be exact, and little under 4 million likes in the time since the account was made.

What makes this feat even more impressive is that Charli hasn’t actually plugged her new channel anywhere yet, with the account thriving based purely off of her most dedicated fans randomly finding it.

It’s fair to say that, at 16 years old, both Charli and Barley are living their wildest dreams.

Dr Disrespect’s iconic intro mocked by Twitch streamers’ hilarious skit

A couple of Twitch streamers decided to mock Dr Disrespect’s intro with a hilarious skit that poked fun at his over-the-top persona.

Legendary entertainer Dr Disrespect has some of the most outrageous production for any stream in existence. With a long, drawn-out intro accompanied by a highlight reel, the opening seems longer than some Hollywood films.

Normally after the opening sequence, the Two-Time begins his stream by “driving” to The Arena to go play Call of Duty, Apex Legends, or whatever else happens to be on the docket.

This driving sequence ultimately made for good content, and the Twitch duo known as Maximum Underdrive decided to copy it for their own opening.

Dr Disrespect has taken over YouTube since being banned on Twitch.

To kick off their broadcast, one of the duo, known as Clyde, was driving in a red Lamborghini with a stylish purple hazed cityscape in the background.

“Ladies and gentlemen tonight, we are gonna dominate,” he began in a soft-spoken manner similar to that of how Doc begins his broadcasts. “Dominate the competition. They say that the competition is fierce, but we have something they don’t, have. We have velocity, inertia, and savagery.”

This was obviously a reference to Dr Disrespect’s “violence, speed, and momentum.”

“Tonight when I set foot inside that stadium, tonight, ladies and gentlemen, they will all know the name is…” he continued before being cut off by his coworker.

“Clyde? What the hell are you doing?” the coworker asked as the camera cut back to reveal a green screen. “I’ve been looking for you all day, dude. We’ve got sh*t to do. Where did you find this Lambo?”

Eventually, the scene faded to black and the Maximum Underdrive segment began normally with a big dropship.

The opening was shot on a green screen in front of a green screen.

For their part, it does seem like the Maximum Underdrive stream does have some decent production of their own, which is nice to see, especially with Doc no longer on Twitch.

So far, it doesn’t seem like the two-time has seen the clip, but it will be interesting to see what he thinks of the parody if he ever decides to give it a watch.
