OfflineTV members Pokimane, Disguised Toast, and Michael Reeves are shelling out a combined $105,000 to get their hands on a Boston Dynamics robot dog, but it might not be for the reasons you think. 

The OfflineTV collective is made up of some of the most popular content creators around when it comes to Twitch and YouTube – commanding a huge following on their individual channels, as well as their group channel. 

As they all pretty much live under one roof, bar Pokimane, it makes it super easy to collaborate. Yet, in this case, Pokimane, Michael Reeves, and Disguised Toast are pooling their money together to buy a robot dog.

Yes, you read that right, a robot dog. Though, Reeves has a few ideas of his own that would make it pretty unique.

The Boston Dynamic dogs have wowed the internet over the years.

The popular YouTuber and streamer noted that now the robots are on sale from Boston Dynamics, he has been trying to get his hands on one. The dogs start at around $74,000 but you can throw on some modifications.

While it might be pretty cool to own one anyway, Reeves’ idea would make the OfflineTV’s robot a one of a kind. “Imagine you’re at a party and you’re like where’s the drinks? Oh, just go to the robot dog,” he started. 

“You go over to the robot dog and I’ve programmed the robot dog to pee out beer into a cup and you will never ever forget that party as long as you live,” he added, much to the amusement of his fellow creators.

While some might think that’s a wacky and crazy idea that would never come to fruition, the personalities have pooled their money together.

Disguised Toast even tweeted out messages between himself and Pokimane about how quick they get the robot from Boston Dynamics themselves.

It’ll certainly be something to keep an eye on, especially given the ideas that Reeves has for the robot dog. 

We’ll just have to wait and see what other mad scientist plans get tossed around in the near future.

TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has finally dropped her long-awaited music video with rapper Wiz Khalifa, which initially sparked so much controversy among fans that she deleted a teaser for the tune two days prior to its release.

Dixie D’Amelio is more than TikTok royalty; alongside her impressive 45 followers on the viral video app, Dixie has also signed a major record deal with Hitco, releasing her own original music.

While her single ‘Be Happy’ was met with general acclaim among her fans, her subsequent song ‘One Whole Day’ was instantly met with vitriol among TikTok users, with many criticizing the star for her lyrics and singing ability.

In fact, the hate got so bad that D’Amelio promptly deleted her teaser for the song two days before its official release, sparking conversation — once again — about the brutal nature of TikTok’s userbase.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie said of the fiasco. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she added.

However, it looks like the trolls couldn’t stop her from releasing the official song on December 4, the music video for which already has 494,000 views at the time of writing — and we have to admit, it’s a certified bop! (Don’t blame us if it gets stuck in your ears for the next week, though.)

Dixie appears to have gotten over the backlash, too; she even uploaded satirical TikTok where she feigned crying as a duet to a user who mocked those currently criticizing the song.

Dixie likewise hit out at critics in a paparazzi interview on December 3, giving haters a good piece of her mind regarding the shocking amount of backlash she received.

“Everyone judges a song over the first five seconds,” the TikToker exclaimed. “I get it, but give constructive criticism. Don’t tell me to f**king go to therapy for a song you don’t like!”

(Dixie’s statement starts at 1:36)

However, it seems that reviews for ‘One Whole Day’ are still mixed — but it doesn’t look like Dixie is letting the trolls bring her down, anymore. You go girl!
