David Dobrik creeps out everyone with his bizarre morning routine

David Dobrik has shared what his morning routine generally looks like with fans – and it may be one of the weirdest things anybody has ever heard.

Dobrik appeared in a video with Vanity Fair called “Everything David Dobrik does in a day,” in which he goes through his entire daily routine in excruciating detail.

It might have been a bit too much detail, though, as his explanation of his morning routine makes him sound, in his own words, “like a psycho.”

Dobrik has become as big a name as any other throughout his years on YouTube, becoming a celebrity in his own right.

Taking viewers through a chronological order of events, Dobrik says he wakes up about 9am, which is standard enough. However, he reveals that he actually sets an alarm every 20 minutes from 6am because it makes him “feel like he’s sleeping for longer.” Slightly odd, but there’s some rationale to it.

It gets weirder, though, as he describes his day post-getting up. He gets up and goes to the bathroom, and explains what goes on in there. “I take a shower every morning. I brush my teeth in the shower, I shave, I do everything in the shower because I hate doing stuff in the sink. I use kids shampoo, I’ve been using it for as long as I can remember.”

It’s what Dobrik does after this, though, that has got people talking. “After every shower I have, I open my mouth and let the water pour in and turn the shower off. Then, when I hear the final drop, I spit the water into my hand and drop it on the ground, and I’m hoping that it’s louder than the last pieces of water that fell out of the shower.”

If this wasn’t quirky enough, he says there’s one last curious thing about his morning routine. After getting out of the shower, he puts his toothbrush and toothpaste away, but says he throws his toothbrush and if it lands in the cup, it’s “going to be a good day.”

This is quite similar to the kind of superstitions sportsmen have at game time, with many feeling like they have to do something particular before every match otherwise it won’t go well.

For the most part, the rest of Dobrik’s day sounds fairly normal – or at least as normal as a multimillionaire vlogger’s life could be, with most of it focused around his work.

As far as morning routines go, you’re unlikely to find many people as precise or kooky as David Dobrik.

That said, there’s got to be a method behind the madness, as his success in recent years speaks for itself. Maybe we all need to take a leaf from his book.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
