Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson has had his fair share of celebrity interactions – but one of his more notable star-studded run-ins took a hilarious turn.

Dawson retweeted a post from American psychologist and television show host Dr. Phil on March 6, which included a photo of the celeb wearing a plain T-shirt (instead of his iconic suit and tie combo) with the simple caption, “T-shirt time.”

“It’s like looking into my future,” Dawson jokingly said of the post, adding a heart-eyed emoji to further add to the humor.

The YouTuber’s Tweet didn’t go unnoticed; Dr. Phil himself came across the post shortly thereafter and gave a light-hearted reply, writing, “Looks like a bright future to me!”

While Dawson didn’t give a direct response to Dr. Phil’s follow-up, he made sure to retweet it, giving the post a spot on his timeline for posterity.

This interaction comes ahead of Dawson’s upcoming documentary series, which is centered around celebrity makeup guru Jeffree Star.

Although no concrete details have been given as to the series’ contents, Dawson admitted that it will have two seasons split between summer and fall – and is being filmed over a grueling seven month period.

Jeffree Star, YouTubeShane Dawson’s previous series covering makeup mogul Jeffree Star earned over 110 million collective views.

In the meantime, Dawson is focusing on other projects, which will include “people and subjects” that his fans are sure to find “interesting.”

Dawson’s latest series covered multiple conspiracy theories, such as Walt Disney’s cryogenically frozen body and even Chuck E. Cheese reusing pizza slices – which the restaurant vehemently denied after the documentary caused a stir online.

Grand master Hikaru challenges Obama to chess match on Twitch

Chess GM Hikaru Nakamura has issued a challenge to former US President Barack Obama to play a match on Twitch after the success of Alexandria ‘AOC’ Ocasio-Cortez’s Among Us stream.

Like many, Hikaru, who recently became a member of the esports organization TSM, was watching AOC’s legendary Twitch stream on October 20 where the congresswoman competed against Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo.

Over 420,000 people tuned in to watch the groundbreaking broadcast, prompting Hikaru to take to Twitter in an effort to get in on the sensation of politicians playing games on Twitch.

“Hey Barack Obama – I see AOC on Twitch tonight doing a promotion for voting and playing Among Us with some huge streamers,” the chess GM began, tagging both Obama and Cortez. “Any chance you’d be interested in a chess match to raise funds for the Joe Biden Victory Fund and Act Blue?”

The response to Hikaru’s challenge was mixed by his own followers, with some wondering why the streamer would engage in politics.

“How the f*** do I follow you for chess and I see politics?” one concerned user asked. “I’m surprised as well,” another replied in response.

However, not everyone was down on the challenge. Many of Hikaru’s followers were open to the idea and quote-tweeted the chess GM to encourage the match.

Hikaru signed to TSM proving chess is an esport.

“Nakamura challenging Obama to a chess game? Wow, this election is getting truly exciting,” one follower wrote with glee.

So far, however, the forty-forth president has yet to reply to Hikaru’s challenge publicly. It is possible that Obama decided to simply slide into Hikaru’s DMs to organize the match, so we should wait and see how this unfolds.

If the battle between Hikaru and Obama does end up taking place, it will be super interesting to see what kind of numbers it would pull on the platform, especially given the recent success of AOC’s stream.
