CHICAGO - Nelson Rodriguez and the Chicago Fire announced that they signed a local broadcast deal with premium pay service YoutubeRED to broadcast all Chicago Fire games utilizing the collection of Youtube personalities like PewDiePie to increase the number of millennial viewers watching Chicago Fire games.
“Games will be broadcast in full 144p in one corner while PewDiePie takes questions from twitch chat, plays video games, uses a racial slur and shows videos of comedy sketches about Hitler,” stated Rodriguez to The Nutmeg News. “We hope that this will increase the viewers in our targeted demographic of douche-bags from the age of 14 to 23.”
Rodriguez indicated that the Fire were eager to take the next step in digital rights management after seeing D.C. United’s local streaming deal with FloSports.
“We wanted to find a way to attract a younger viewer to our game,” stated Rodriguez. “And a focus group indicated that the youths watch the youtubes for, ‘their lulz,’ whatever that means. We are committed to making an honest effort to broadcast games in a way that would break the mold and we feel that a privileged Swedish manchild yelling racial slurs over our game would lend a specific kind of atmosphere that other streaming services simply couldn’t match.”
The Nutmeg News will have more as H3H3 post a reaction video to The Fine Brothers posting a react video to PewDiePie reacting to The Chicago Fire losing to the Philadelphia Union.
