Dr Disrespect has always been known for hilarious antics on stream, but new features for his Sea of Thieves undertakings are impressive, to say the least.

The Doc has been ramping up his stream’s production value in 2019, which has so far included everything from producing incredible backdrops to innovative new ways to play games, but few were ready for how well his stream would synergize with his new Sea of Thieves streams.

After starting up Sea of Thieves, the Doc found himself fumbling with the game’s first set of objectives when his production value made widespread hysteria ravage Twitch chat.

Rare StudiosThe Doc has recently started his voyage into Sea of Thieves but is already shaping up to be one of the game’s more entertaining personalities.

Dr Disrespect found himself in the middle of the ocean trailing back to land when he introduced a new transition animation along with a hilariously positioned camera layout.

The streamer created a special design element for his Sea of Thieves adventures that showed his head and shoulders protruding from a cannon similar a feature in the game in which players can load themselves to be shot out of a ship’s artillery.

He’s also added a dynamic moving deck of a pirate ship that he’s able to walk across to advise his viewers of the next plan.

His chat was equally amused and impressed at the Doc, as it seems the streamer was fully prepared to commit to a pirate’s life.

It’s currently unknown if the Doc plans to keep the layout during the entirety of his Sea of Thieves playthrough, but has yet to change the scene after introducing it.

Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
