Dr DisRespect Teases That He Could Start Streaming on YouTube

Dr DisRespect dropped a small hint during a recent live stream that he could be streaming on YouTube in the future, despite being the self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch’.

Amazon-owned platform Twitch is the undisputed home of video game streaming, but YouTube has been making big moves in that area recently and has attracted some big names to stream live on YouTube instead.

Dr DisRespect himself was initially a YouTuber only, posting gaming videos about Call of Duty, Halo, and various rants and skits.

But he moved away from YouTube and social media generally for a few years, before returning and restarting the Dr DisRespect character, streaming battle royale games on Twitch.

YouTube has recently taken steps to replicate the tools and user interface of Twitch though, and the Doc may just be tempted to stream live on the site.

When explaining why his Twitch username has ‘LIVE’ at the end, he dropped a small hint which sounds like he is considering streaming on YouTube also.

“You go to YouTube and it’s just ‘Dr DisRespect’ because I’m not live on YouTube – well, maybe not yet. Maybe not yet. But that’s a strategic business move.

Most streamers either broadcast exclusively on Twitch or on YouTube, rarely both. However, given the Doc’s significant following on Twitch, it is unthinkable that he would abandon the platform entirely.

Perhaps then he is considering streaming on both platforms at the same time, which has been done in the past by other streamers but with limited success.

But because Dr DisRespect is a partnered channel on Twitch, there are limitations on streaming on other platforms as part of the Twitch partner agreement.

Additionally, streaming with two live chats can be difficult for streamers to monitor both, which is why most will stick to one dedicated platform.


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.
