During a panel segment at TwitchCon 2018, Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, PJ “Action Jaxon,” and MLB pitcher and Twitch streamer Trevor May all thoroughly roasted Tim “TimTheTatman” Betar (and each other).
Nearly six months later, one of the jokes during the segment is being used to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
During the roast, May said, “it’s my pleasure to be up here with these four guys, three guys, four guys—or as I call our boy band Four Millionaires and Paul.” Today, DrLupo has converted the joke into purchasable t-shirts and sweatshirts with all proceeds going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The shirt features DrLupo, Ninja, and TimTheTatman all dramatically posed while Action Jaxon looks on disapprovingly.
During a livestream today with TimTheTatman, Ninja, and Action Jaxon, DrLupo revealed the new merchandise after teasing the announcement the day before. The merchandise collection is available for the next three weeks or until April 15th. Already, the streamers have sold over 3,000 shirts raising more than $40,000 for the children’s hospital.
DrLupo has publicly supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the past and has raised thousands of dollars for the organization. This is the first time, however, DrLupo has collaborated with so many streamers to raise money. Right now, DrLupo has set a goal to sell 20,000 shirts, but it seems like that goal will be broken well before the three weeks are up.
