Popular Twitch streamer Dr. Disrespect stumbled upon an easter egg in Gearbox’s Borderlands 3 that plays off of his popular tagline: violence, speed and momentum.

The Doc is one of the top entertainers on Twitch and he’s built his community on the back of his mantra, which has become synonymous with the streamer at this point.

Anytime the two-time pops off, you can expect to see someone in chat bring it up, but now violence, speed and momentum have found their way into Borderlands 3.

A Dr. Disrespect easter egg in Borderlands 3?

Borderlands 3 comes out officially on September 13 for console players, but the game was available on PC at 4 PM PST on September 12 for PC players.

This means the game has already seen a lot of stream time and even though Dr. Disrespect wasn’t playing it on his channel, he couldn’t help but notice an homage to himself within the game.

The easter egg was found in an operative class mod called “Forceful Disruptor”, which grants +1 Violence, +1 Speed and +1 Momentum (along with +17 percent grenade radius).

Doc called it “the best mod in Borderlands 3” on Twitter, but it remains to be seen if the easter egg will be enough for him to play the game on stream.

There’s no way that a mod granting violence, speed and momentum was just randomly added into Borderlands 3, and Gearbox’s reply to the Doc’s discovery seems to confirm it was intentional.

Does this mean Doc will play Borderlands 3 on stream?

The Borderlands series is pretty popular and with the game coming out on Friday, September 13, it could be one of the site’s most-streamed games this weekend.

Of course, Doc is a big time fan, and CoD partner and with the Modern Warfare Multiplayer beta running through the weekend – there’s a good chance he’ll be sticking to that.

Dr. Disrespect hasn’t given any indication he’ll be playing Borderlands 3 at all, but there’s a better chance of him playing that than WoW Classic, which the streamer has been making fun of almost since release.

Whether or not the streamer decides to play Borderlands 3, he’ll still be sticking to his violence, speed and momentum.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
