YouTube star David Dobrik was joined by actor Chris Rock for a hilarious short video that might be a hint at an upcoming collaboration between the two.

Dobrik is one of the most successful YouTubers on the platform with more than 17 million subscribers tuning in to watch his videos.

Rock might actually have Dobrik beat in the fame department though, as he’s starred in tons of successful movies over the last three decades. Now it seems the two are getting ready to team up for something…

On Sunday, June 21, Dobrik posted a video of him watching Madagascar – one of the film series Rock stars in – but with a star-studded twist.

After showing a shot of the video, the YouTuber turned his camera around to reveal that he was actually watching Madagascar with Chris Rock himself, who dutifully recited some of his lines along with the movie.

Dobrik looked absolutely giddy as the Hollywood icon rattled off his lines, and why wouldn’t he? It’s not every day you get to watch a movie with one of the people who stars in it.

But besides being a nice glimpse at two entertainers hanging out and chilling, some think the clip might be hinting at a possible upcoming collaboration between the two.

Seeing as Rock was apparently over at Dobrik’s house, and not the other way around, it seems fairly likely that the actor will be appearing alongside the YouTuber in an upcoming video.

Dobrik is no stranger to celebrity collabs, so one with Chris Rock is definitely possible.

Dobrik has been on a semi-hiatus from publishing any YouTube content for the last month, but it definitely seems like he’s planning on making a return soon, and in a big way.

Exactly what the pair will get up to, or when a video could come out, remains unknown. But at least it sure does seem like he will be back on the YT grind soon. If not, at least he had a great time watching Madagascar.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
