While reacting to the Apex Legends Season 6 gameplay trailer, popular streamer Dr Disrespect explained to viewers why he’s tired of how the games industry is marketing titles.

Dr Disrespect made his major return streaming on August 7 with a YouTube broadcast that pulled in over 520k viewers. To finish out his first week back, the star teamed up with the platform’s biggest creator Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg for an epic collaboration in Fall Guys.

However before the event started, the Two-Time Champion reacted to the Apex Legends Season 6 gameplay trailer. While watching, the 38-year-old launched into a passionate rant about why he thinks the games industry has started to become “repetitive” in its marketing.

Dr Disrespect on games industry marketing

The popular streamer was reacting to the latest Apex Legends trailer when he paused the video to explain the issue he has with how mainstream projects are being marketed.

“Okay, no offense to Respawn. This is not directly to Respawn 0r Apex in general. It’s more of a response to the bigger people up at the top in terms of how we are marketing f**king products in mainstream media,” he said.

The star then hit out at trailers starting to feel the same. “Whether it’s music, movies, video games… Everything feels the exact same, man! It’s so vanilla out there. It’s repetitive!” Slamming his hand on his desk, he exclaimed, “That’s why I want to start a production company that will f**king take things to the f**king next level!”

Doc then hilariously gave his description of modern marketing. “Here comes the rap music. It’s very generic. Sliding around montage. SICK! We’ve been seeing for twenty years. It’s the same s**t. IT REALLY IS!” he yelled.

(Topic starts at 59:08.)

As for how he would do marketing, the streamer explained, “I want to take people through a goddamn journey, man! We’re talking about the most popular industry in the world – video games. And it’s interactive. The online stuff. I feel like we can be taking these and showcasing these type of trailers to the next level.”

Dr Disrespect knows a lot about how to put on a show with his streams featuring quality production. Before his return to YouTube, he had over 340k viewers staring at a static picture of a gas station as they listened to his interactive radio broadcasts.

James Charles slays Kylie Jenner’s Halloween makeup with fierce look

Social media mogul and reality tv star Kylie Jenner is known as much for her lipstick line as she is for her over-the-top Halloween costumes, and one of her 2020 looks absolutely “killed” the competition — in part due to the talents of James Charles.

As soon as Halloween rolls around — even during the current health crisis — fans look toward to the crazy costumes that celebrities will pull off, which is almost always a visual treat due to their top-tier budgets and friendships with special effects artists.

Kylie Jenner is one such celeb, who has turned heads across the net for her rendition of a Barbie doll and Ariel from the Little Mermaid — not to mention the time she dressed up as a woodland fairy.

However, her latest costume has taken a more “wild” turn, as inspired by her brand-new Cheetah-themed makeup collection.

Kylie Jenner has completely floored fans throughout the years with her creative Halloween costumes, one of which was a classic fairy.

Partnering up with YouTuber-slash-makeup artist James Charles, Kylie decided to go full-on big cat, with Charles lending his own talents to deliver some stunning special effects.

Using tissue and liquid latex, James created three fake slash marks on her left cheek, as though Kylie had been scratched by the very Cheetah from her makeup collection.

After applying the rest of her makeup — also using the Cheetah collection — Charles completed the look by using black and red eyeshadows, as well as fake blood, to create a surprisingly realistic facial injury.

It’s clear that no cat scratch is going to get Kylie down, though, as evidenced by how amazingly fierce the entire ensemble came together, which the two showed off in a no-nonsense Instagram photo.

As for Kylie’s actual Halloween costume on the official holiday, she isn’t giving out any hints, preferring to keep it a surprise on the actual day (even though James tried his best to get her to spill the beans).
