Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson has dropped the official trailer for his upcoming documentary series – which tackles a subject far from his usual fare of YouTube stars and internet celebrities.

Dawson uploaded the trailer on January 18, after teasing the video with a screenshot on January 14.

Simply titled, ‘Conspiracy Series,’ the trailer shows Dawson and a slew of other individuals set to disturbing music, who appear to be shocked by what looks to be such technology as facial recognition, DeepFakes, and the Amazon Echo.

Dawson’s trailer included a few key details that revealed the series as a two-part special edition, with the first episode set to drop on January 30.

Dawson hinted that the series would take a drastic turn from his usual subject matter months beforehand, following the conclusion of his Jake Paul documentary in early October of 2018.

After throwing around the possibility of UFO sightings, the California wildfires, and even a discussion on YouTube’s widely-debated advertising algorithm, it appears that Dawson is taking a deep-dive into next-gen technology – more specifically, into privacy breaches created by such technology.

Dawson amped up the suspense by showing what appears to be sensitive documents, and even commented that he might need to contact his lawyer.

The YouTuber likewise admitted that the videos for the series could be over two hours long – possibly justifying its short length of merely two episodes.

After the success of his series covering Jake Paul, which saw record-breaking viewership that surpassed even major Netflix shows, fans can expect yet another strong entry in his series of documentaries that have taken the YouTube world by storm.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
