Dr Disrespect revealed why he likes fellow streamer Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel so much after playing a game of Escape From Tarkov with the Canadian.

The Doc is one of the biggest streamers in the world with almost four million followers on Twitch, but is best known for playing by himself rather than with others.

After criticizing streamers who play with others on the tactical shooter, the leader of the Champions Club jumped into the action with the former Overwatch pro, and after their match, heaped praise on his fellow Twitch star, explaining why he really liked him to his chat.

After discussing how he wanted to play more with the streamer, but Escape From Tarkov’s queue times were making it difficult, The Doc broke into some lavish praise about his peer.

“I like xQc,” Dr Disrespect told his chat. “He has a good perspective about the way he approaches things, you know? I always enjoy unique perspectives in that sense. Like when we’re talking, he had his own [view], it was good. I liked it. Plus good energy.”

Dr Disrespect also went on to state that he liked Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar as well, before making sure to turn the attention back to himself in typical Doc fashion, saying: “Enough about them, it’s about me!”

The good news for those keen to see The Doc and xQc team up again is that the streamer is open to the possibility, but didn’t go as far as stating when they will link up in Tarkov again.

It may not come as too big a surprise that the pair seem to get on very well, with their outlandish personalities almost complimenting each other rather than overshadowing, leaving fans of the Twitch streamers begging for more hilarious moments as they try to survive in one of the most challenging first-person shooters on the market.

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.
