It seems that not everyone is looking forward to the release of Final Mouse’s highly anticipated next gaming mouse, which they’ve produced in collaboration with Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

Final Mouse and Ninja have organized a thorough marketing campaign for the mouse in the weeks leading up to its release, including an animated short of Ninja teasing the product.

This has generated a lot of hype and interest in the mouse, which has been kept well under wraps until its scheduled release date on December 1.

Not everyone has boarded the hype train however, as Twitch streamer ‘Stormfall33’ threw shade at Final Mouse’s newest project live on her stream.

Her main issue is with the marketing of the mouse, which she ridiculed by mockingly reading the series of tweets that the company put out to advertise their product. 

It’s clear that the streamer believes that Final Mouse are over-hyping their product with exaggerated tweets and advertisements, which she affirms by saying “You’re selling a fucking mouse” at the end of the clip.

While it’s very likely she will not be purchasing the mouse when it comes out, she will definitely be in the minority when it comes to her opinion.

Final Mouse have established themselves as one of the premier developers of gaming mouses, and coupled with the prominence of their partner Ninja, this new product will likely sell out within hours.

Final Mouse have organized a promotional event with Ninja in Los Angeles, CA, where they will be officially unveiling the mouse on December 1.

Numerous popular content creators have already received the mouse ahead of time, but have only posted pictures of the outside packaging and no images of the actual mouse have been leaked.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
