PewDiePie released a new video slamming creator conventions and how our society reacts to internet celebrities, while mocking the most recent Con failure, TanaCon. 

YouTuber Tana Mongeau, known for her controversial videos that occasionally include racial slurs, threw TanaCon after being repeatedly slighted by another creator convention – VidCon. Unfortunately for Tana, TanaCon was a disaster and PewDiePie was ready to meme it.

PewDiePie showed angry Twitter posts from attendees of TanaCon, which included fans chanting “refund” and complaining about the lack of food, water and security at the venue. A number of celebrity creators who were promoted as participating in TanaCon were unable to attend, due to a lack of planning from Tana and scheduling issues with the concurrent VidCon.

TanaCon was plagued with long lines and ended up being very different from what was promised. At one point, PewDiePie mockingly reveals the only positive to come from TanaCon – a TanaCondom that was included in every guest bag.

Despite the relentless shots at TanaCon and its creator Tana Mongeau, PewDiePie understands why she threw the event in the first place. He makes a hard pivot around the 9 minute mark of the video, sympathizing with why Tana felt the need to throw her own version of VidCon.

“[VidCon] is not what YouTube is, it’s what they want it to be… they pick who they want to have as featured creators and probably don’t want controversial creators like Tana Mongeau to attend their event. Which leads to her coming to the event, and then fans swarm around her, which leads to safety issues and she gets kicked out. And apparently, this happened year after year.”

PewDiePie explains how the lack of convention planning experience doomed TanaCon, but he hopes Tana takes what she learned and tries again next year. He then switched his sights to VidCon and how celebrities are treated at creator conventions, by showing a clip of Casey Neistat waving to screaming fans.

“This is the reason why I don’t want to go to VidCon, people screaming at you is just obnoxious. There is no reason, no reason, why anyone should treat me more than anyone else. I don’t want it, I find it annoying… I hate this whole concept of fame and worship. Why? Why is that a thing?”

“This whole idea of worship is being promoted through these VidCon events where people just run around like f***in Neanderthals… It’s so stupid.”

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
