Shane Dawson has shed some more light about his upcoming YouTube documentary series, as fans eagerly await his next big, mysterious, project.

The YouTuber has finally given his fans an idea of when his new content is expected to launch, as well as another cryptic message about the contents of the highly anticipated series. 

After a series of tweets were posted on his account, we understand that the new series is expected to land at the end of January and he has described its contents as “unexpected”. 

“It will be unexpected and I’m going to change my locks after” he tweeted, which suggests there could be an element of danger in whatever he has planned.

When a fan asked when they can expect to see the start of the new series, Dawson responded saying “Some of it will come before the end of the month.”

The popular YouTuber was one of the first people to rise to fame on the content sharing platform and has continued to enjoy a high profile on YouTube ever since – with over 17.7 million subscribers at the time of writing. 

Dawson has been teasing fans with clues on his Twitter account for quite some time, and posted a distorted photo of himself on January 10 along with the caption: “Don’t believe everything you s33”, leaving fans guessing about what he will be basing his docuseries about this time around. 

His previous works include coverage of controversial YouTuber personalities such as Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau. With the timeframe of its expected release now clear, will the next one be based on another internet celebrity?


Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
