Kevin Smith is most well-known for directing and starring in several films such as Clerks, Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Now, he’s ventured into streaming on Twitch and the results didn’t start off so smooth.

On Monday July 15, Smith attempted his first Twitch broadcast to talk to his fans about his upcoming film, a reboot of the cult classic Jay and Silent Bob. It seemed to go well, but when he was done, he struggled to end the stream leading to an awkward, yet hilarious couple of minutes.

“Have a great day. Bye, I’ll see you tomorrow,” Smith said as he attempted to shut the stream down.


Whatever it was Smith was pressing wouldn’t let him end the stream though and it continued.

“Looks like it’s not letting me leave,” Smith sighed. “How do I end this? It was so smooth too.”

The struggle continued for a few moments with the filmmaker voicing his displeasure. “It won’t end! Why won’t it end? Stop it! I’m pressing the end button. It won’t end!”

Smith’s chat was loving every second of his struggles though, showing no pity and spamming the ‘LUL’ emote endlessly.

Eventually, the Clerks director turned his camera on its side and wondered “what if I go like this?” prompting more laughter on Twitch.

“I guess we’re just going to keep on streaming for the rest of the day… no I got to go!” as he turned the camera on his side once more and finally ended his broadcast.

It’s unclear if Smith actually could end the stream and was just playing around or if he was genuinely having difficulty.

Smith’s reboot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back does not yet have a release date, but production was completed on March 27, 2019.

The film stars Smith as Silent Bob/Bluntman and Jason Mewes as Jay/Chronic.

A Disney cosplayer went viral on Instagram after enchanting viewers with her jaw-dropping take on beloved princess, Cinderella. 

One of the most iconic animated films of all time, Cinderella is still as influential as it was when it made its debut in 1950. The Disney adaptation brought a magical take on a classic fairytale and is often considered the best version of the story.

Prolific cosplayer ‘Anastasia Lion’ celebrated the beloved movie by bringing its princess protagonist to life with her insanely accurate costume. Her stunning re-creation of the heroine will be sure to leave fans in awe.

The fairy tale centers on Cinderella, who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother. Her fate changes, however, when her fairy godmother transforms her into a princess so that she can attend the Royal Ball.

Cosplayer Anastasia Lion made waves on social media when she shared her true-to-life take on the Disney heroine. The Russian-based artist faithfully re-created the character’s look from the beginning of the movie when she is a servant for her step-family.

Photographer ‘ph_mosienko’ brilliantly captured the moment, with their work bringing the animation’s visual style to life. Anastasia looks so much like the Disney princess, it’s almost as if she’s walked out of the screen.

In another stunning shot by Elizaveta, the cosplayer showed off her depiction of Cinderella’s flowing blue dress which she wears to the Royal Ball. The gorgeous stone pillars and flowing flowers in the background bring the whole piece together, as it truly looks like the princess is fleeing the event before midnight. 

Despite releasing over 70 years ago, Walt Disney’s enchanting take on the classic folk tale has become iconic in pop culture. Viewers around the world still love the film, and it’s popular in the cosplay community.

Those who have managed to never see the 1950 movie can watch its HD remaster on streaming services Disney+ and Amazon Prime. It is also available to purchase on all digital platforms.
