Logan Paul challenges Will Smith to a hilarious dare

Social media star Logan Paul has officially called out actor Will Smith to participate in yet another bungee jumping challenge, after YouTube channel ‘The Yes Theory’ pulled off a similar stunt in late September of 2018.

Paul uploaded a video of an outdoor excursion with his roommates, during which he called out Smith in an humorous attempt at collaborating with the Hollywood star. The crew had ventured outdoors to go bungee jumping off ‘The Bridge to Nowhere’ in Azusa, California when Paul came up with the idea.

“Yo! I have a sick fucking idea,” Paul exclaimed. “We should get Will Smith and challenge him to do like, a bungee jump out of a helicopter.”

Paul went on to directly address Smith, adding that he should jump out of the helicopter over the Grand Canyon. However, Paul’s cameraman pointed out that ‘The Yes Theory’ had already accomplished the same feat – much to his apparent confusion.

While Paul was likely joking about his “challenge,” Smith’s bungee jumping stunt with ‘The Yes Theory’ quickly went viral across YouTube in a live event on September 25, 2018, and has garnered over 18 million views as of December 22.

The actor agreed to face his fears after being challenged by the YouTube group, admitting that he was “terrified of walking to the edge” of the Canyon during one of his visits as a child.

Smith’s unorthodox 50th birthday celebration landed him a spot on YouTube Rewind 2018, which quickly became the most disliked video on the platform.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
