IRL Twitch streamer JakeNBake was celebrating Halloween in Tokyo’s Shibuya district on October 31 when he came across a partier dressed as Dr Disrespect

Shibuya is becoming one of the best places on the planet to celebrate the holiday and Jake was there in the flesh to take in the sights. 

While walking through the commercial and business district dressed as Heihachi from the fighting game franchise Tekken, Jake came into contact with a man dressed as extremely popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect. 

Although this costume lacked the iconic red that the two-time wears during his broadcasts, this party-goer opted for a slick blazer-wearing Doc while keeping the hair and sunglasses intact.

Jake tried to explain the costume to his friends, but noted the man lacked Doc’s 6’8 frame. “I know how to fix this,” one of Jake’s friends suggested and motioned for the streamer to bend down to give the illusion the costume-wearer was taller than he actually was. 

“You’re so long, man!” Jake joked while crouching.

“Special effects, CGI,” ‘Dr Disrespect’ chirped back, referencing Doc’s incredible production quality during broadcasts. 

“Damn, we got to see the Doc, chat. He really is 6’8. Look at this vertical leap,” Jake replied, getting the cosplayer to jump in the air. 

The conversation then turned to whether or not a 37’ vertical leap was actually that impressive - something the real Doc often touts he is able to do as part of his schtick. 

“I can definitely do three feet,” Jake said. 

“Listen, unless you’re a f***ing like full-time athlete, you cannot jump that high,” the man in the Doc costume informed him. 

Eventually, Jake did his best jump, but came nowhere close to eclipsing three feet, showcasing just how impressive Doc’s claim really was.

While the Doc-impersonator wasn’t able to jump as high as the real thing, he put his dancing skills to the test shortly thereafter when music began to play. 

The costumed two-time started randomly dancing in the street, causing people around him to stop what they were doing and take notice.

In the end the musical stunt even earned a high-five from Jake who was super impressed by his performance. 

It would be interesting to see if the real thing can match the dancing skills shown by one of his fans. It doesn't help that the cosplayer had one of Twitch's best platforms to show what he's made of. According to the third-party website TwitchMetrics, JakeNBake is the 7th most-watched English Just Chatting channel and has over 400,000 followers on the streaming platform.
