Dr Disrespect steals the show with hilarious Jimmy Kimmel Live cameo

Dr Disrespect has appeared in a hilarious Christmas skit on late-night U.S. talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live for a brand new Turtle Beach commercial and managed to steal the show in typical Doc fashion.

Jimmy Kimmel Live usually features host Kimmel interviewing some of the biggest names in showbiz, sports and everything in between every weeknight.

Despite once upon a time going viral for his mockery of gaming and esports, Kimmel perhaps seems more comfortable embracing the industry with this bit he created with the Two-Time.

Twitter: Turtle BeachThe Doc made himself known to the mainstream world in this typical Dr Disrespect appearance.

In an unexpected collaboration, we saw Dr Disrespect breaking in and standing beside a Christmas tree as Jimmy and his trusty sidekick Guillermo settled down peacefully in bed and waited for Santa Claus.

After Guillermo tells Jimmy that he thinks someone is in the room, they look up to see the Doc attempting to place presents under the tree. “Wait, you’re not Santa,” Jimmy starts. “That’s two-time esports streamer of the year Dr Disrespect!”

They explain to the Two-Time that they’re actually waiting on Santa and not him, when Doc makes jokes about them lighting the fireplace in anticipation of Santa and how St. Nick is “creepy” for watching children and sneaking into people’s homes.

Dr Disrespect goes on to say that “the only thing we need to fear is subpar gaming equipment,” before handing Jimmy and Guillermo a Turtle Beach headset each, telling them that “they’re perfect whether you’re a pro player or a little baby precious noob.”

Jimmy tells the Doc that Christmas is now saved thanks to him before the ‘real Santa’ turns up and is chased down by Guillermo, who tells him to “go back to Alaska.”

We’ve occasionally seen popular gaming personalities, such as Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins or Kyle ‘Bugha‘ Giersdorf, appear on these types of shows, but usually as guests and not to be part of a commercial or skit. However, this seems right up Doc’s alley of expertise.

Whether Dr Disrespect will become a more regular fixture on Jimmy Kimmel Live may be up for debate, but there’s no doubt he’ll be appearing on our TV screens more in the future.

In early December 2019, he announced that he had signed a deal with the creators of The Walking Dead to create a series based on his iconic persona, but it’s still in the very early stages and has not yet been picked up by a network.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
