If you were under the impression that Avengers: Infinity War was the most ambitious crossover event of all time, think again: We might soon be blessed with a Taco Bell mukbang stream featuring both Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and makeup personality Jeffree Star.
The situation arose when Jessica Blevins retweeted a post by Star espousing his love for Taco Bell. Ninja responded with enthusiasm, cluing Star into the admittedly ingenious life hack of replacing the shell of a Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Doritos Locos taco shell.
Just over an hour after Ninja’s tweet, Star responded in kind, inviting Ninja over for a mukbang stream.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “mukbang,” it’s a livestream of a person eating copious amounts of food while commenting on the experience with their live audience. The practice first surfaced in South Korea in 2010, but it has since become a worldwide phenomenon, with esports personalities such as Nubar “Maxlore” Sarafian serving up mukbang streams of their own.
Since getting his start on Myspace, Jeffree Star has become one of the most well-known personalities of the YouTube makeup scene, starting his own brand, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, in 2014. He rivals Ninja in popularity, but commands a vastly different audience, and a combined stream between the two would bring together the online gaming and makeup communities.
And with Ninja graciously accepting Star’s invitation, this crossover could very well become a reality.
