Dr DisRespect’s Incredible Impression of the Average Stream Sniper in PUBG

For any popular streamer, the plague of ‘stream snipers’ in multiplayer games is simply par for the course, but Dr DisRespect gets it worse than most – and has a unique way of dealing with them.

Stream snipers are just other players in the game, who tactfully attempt to get into the same match as their favorite streamer, either just for the thrill of it or, more often, to do their very best to frustrate them.

While playing PUBG, the Doc’s game of choice, stream snipers often attempt to antagonise him by following him around in lobbies, but he has plenty of experience dealing with them.

Utilising his many voices, he does an excellent impression of how imagines the average stream sniper talks when spending their time chasing the Doc around.

Not too long ago, Dr DisRespect and fellow PUBG streamer Shroud ran into a different breed of stream snipers though, ones which sang a song to them rather than hunt them down in game.

Shroud himself is known for being swamped by stream snipers, but given his skill in game it’s never usually too much of a hassle to simply take them out.

Dr DisRespect is somewhat less patient though, and his outbursts against them probably contribute to just how many swarm him during every stream.

And it’s not just PUBG streamers that suffer. Pro Fortnite player and FaZe Clan member Turner “Tfue” Tenney actually called for stream snipers to be banned from the game.

Twitch itself has a policy against streamers purposefully going hunting for other streamers, and it will ban streamers who are found in breach of this rule.

And it is actually a punishable offense to stream snipe in PUBG too, but it is very difficult to impose a ruling on random players who are searching for games in the hope of landing in the same lobby as a big name streamer, so the Doc and others simply have to put up with them.

Twitch streamer and comedian Mark Samyal Bonanno has gone viral for posting the same photo of himself and his father to Instagram every single day — with a few humorous modifications, of course.

Every once in a while, someone gets incredibly creative with their social media presence; but with so many content creators out there nowadays, it seems like just about everything has already been done.

This is not the case for Twitch streamer, comedian and actor Mark Bonanno, who took his Instagram game to the next level with a little inspiration from his father.

Bonanno is part of Australian absurdist comedy group Aunty Donna, which boasts an impressive YouTube presence of over 315,000 subscribers.

Best known for their comedy sketches and humorous podcast, Aunty Donna has become quite the name in the Aussie online space, and Bonanno is showing off his comedy chops even further via his Instagram account.

A quick look at his profile will show some interesting results: His entire profile consists of a single photo posted multiple times, showing himself and his father posing in front of a blue Ford sedan.

These photos stretch back far into his account, each with a different spin; Bonanno even recreated the photo with TF2 characters in Garry’s Mod, while others show the two in front of the famous code seen in the Matrix films or other odd backgrounds.

His latest pic (at the time of writing) shows his father’s head photoshopped into that of a velociraptor — and although it’s not exactly Jurassic Park-levels of frightening, it’s certainly worth a good laugh.

Bonanno’s Instagram shenanigans have since gone viral online, earning him wide appeal as viewers can’t seem to get enough of the daily photoshopped madness of the same picture; but a cheeky Q&A session with his pater has revealed that he wasn’t actually aware the photo would turn into such a long-running gag.

In response to a fan’s question about the pic, Bonanno’s father, Charlie (real name Carmelo), wrote: “I thought it was a bit of fun. I didn’t know he was going to do this, though.”

Charlie answers a question about Mark's daily photoshopping posts.

A cheeky Q&A sesh with Mark’s father, Charlie, revealed his humorous thoughts on the now viral daily photo project.

Shenanigans aside, it seems that Mark’s wacky undertaking has taken off in a major way, giving fans and onlookers something wild to look forward to every day.
