Twitch streamer explains what South Park nailed in classic WoW episode

The beloved South Park episode ‘Make Love, Not Warcraft’ remains one of the most popular in series history and as a Twitch streamer pointed out, it got one particular aspect of the game absolutely perfect. 

South Park has never shied away from tackling popular culture including video games. Throughout the hit adult cartoon’s 22 seasons, series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have mocked (or celebrated) phenomenons such as Pokemon, Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption and perhaps most famously World of Warcraft. 

In 2006, when World of Warcraft was undoubtedly one of the hottest games on the market, ‘Make Love, Not Warcraft’ debuted. The episode was widely praised for not only its representation of WoW culture, but also because Blizzard Entertainment worked with the show to create its machinima. 

Blizzard EntertainmentWoW Classic has once again taken the internet by storm.

The episode also holds a special place in Trey and Matt’s hearts. In 2015, the two listed it as their third favorite episode in the series.

One thing that often goes slightly overlooked when discussing the episode, however, is how the characters’ voices change just enough while they’re gaming. 

While streaming WoW Classic on Twitch, MadSeasonShow started praising the episode. “They totally got down the inflection of people’s voices when they speak,” he said.

“Like uh, give uh, get the Elixir of the Mongoose for Kenny to boost your bow attacks,” he joked talking with the exaggeration they had in the show. “They totally nailed that, dude.” 

South ParkThe episode’s antagonist is a high-level player who kills everyone else’s character.

Then almost right as he was done talking about the show nailing how people talk while playing Warcraft, someone in the game made his point by saying “everybody on the lava spawn” with a voice he was just referencing. 

Of course, the timing prompted a laugh from the Twitch streamer who continued playing. 

Season 23 of South Park begins September 25. It would be amazing if somehow we got a sequel to Make Love, Not Warcraft with the success of WoW Classic.

The game was a monumental hit at launch amassing over 1 million Twitch viewers at launch amidst a whirlwind of praise. It was so crazy that 500,000 of those viewers were watching players stare at a login screen before the servers went live. 

A new South Park episode could be unlikely, however, as three years ago Trey Parker seemingly dismissed the idea of spoofing Pokemon Go because they had already tackled Pokemon with the episode “Chinpokomon” in 1999. It’s possible the same logic would apply to WarCraft, but we can only hope they’ve changed their mind.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
