Dr Disrespect gives absurd advice to Fortnite World Cup pros winning millions

With the Fortnite World Cup underway in New York City, a number of young professionals are receiving life-changing prize money, and Twitch powerhouse DrDisrespect provided some unique advice for them. 

July 27 saw the Fortnite World Cup’s duos tournament, as a host of professionals took home life changing money. The winners, Nyhrox and Aqua, took home $3 million between them. It doesn’t stop there, as even the duo placing 10th split a hefty $225,000 between them.

However, many of the winners are barely teenagers, and so such large amounts of money require sensible management. For example, English teenager Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman is just 15 years old, and won $2,250,000 million between him and his duo partner.

Epic GamesThe final duo standing reflect the insane prize money being dished out.

The winners needn’t worry, however, with some of the gaming community on hand to offer sound financial advice. On July 27, SypherPK tweeted that his advice to the winners is “do not blow through that money. Enjoy it, but also get financial guidance… Make it last.”

DrDisrespect was not impressed with Sypher’s advice, dubbing it the “most stupid advice I’ve ever heard”. He followed this up by providing some (questionable) advice of his own.

“I’d buy a 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVT blacked out everything,” he said, but that wasn’t all. “(Also) a 38’ foot offshore racing boat with matching trailer connected to a 2021 Lamborghini Urus blacked out.”

He concluded his advice by summarizing it as “just a few ideas for the winners. Trust me.”

It’s definitely not our place to suggest which piece of advice you choose to listen (Sypher’s, please), but the amount of money on offer at the Fortnite World Cup is sure to positively impact on the winners, as they are launched into the mainstream.

Sypher suggested that the Doc’s advice wasn’t useful, because the winners “wouldn’t be able to pull it off the way you would. They don’t have their drivers’ licenses yet.”

Whatever you make of it, the Doc in a Lamborghini pulling a 38 foot boat is quite an image.

David Dobrik spooked after drone leaves “creepy” note at his home

Yet again, something bizarre has been dropped off at YouTuber David Dobrik’s house, this time a bag of Chipotle along with a slightly unnerving note flown into his backyard via drone.

David Dobrik has accumulated an enormous fan base on YouTube both as part of the Vlog Squad and as an independent creator. With 18.5 million subscribers, and 23.5 million followers on TikTok, he’s certainly not short of people who love his content and personality.

However, being an online personality of such a large scale comes with its lack of privacy, and that exposure to the world in turn has some bizarre side effects, as David has experienced before.

Earlier in October, the content creator was stunned to find that someone had left an actual kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. CCTV footage captured a mysterious stranger placing the bag at his door, but their identity could not be determined.

Clearly that incident has inspired others to try their luck at delivering something to his house without direct consent.

Mysterious drone arrives for David Dobrik

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, David showed a small drone placing a paper bag of Chipotle in his backyard. “Bro, this is so scary. Someone f**king flew Chipotle on a drone into my backyard, I’m not f**king kidding. What if it’s a f**king bomb, what do I do?”

Also attached to the machine was a little green bag, which when opened revealed some other items along with a small orange handwritten note.

The note stated “you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar. Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”

The letter was definitely a little bit strange.

The mysterious group went on to say that “if you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it. PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”

While the incident appears to be relatively well-intentioned, it clearly freaked David and his friends out. The mysterious note referring to a group that will soon be “familiar” to him is certainly eerie, as is the ease at which it was able to access his yard.

It’s not yet clear whether David will really end up meeting the senders of the drone, or even if he ate the food it brought, but people certainly found it interesting as the video now has over 600,000 likes and 2.6 million views.
