The Streisand Effect
23 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The episode worked better for me as it was funnier and weird at the same time, especially as Paper Boi now getting fame has to take criticism.

The digs come from an online blogger called Zan who criticises and pokes fun of Paper Boi. This antagonises Paper Boi especially as Zan seems to be racially ambiguous.

So Paper Boi seeks out Zan to give him a piece of his mind and a few slaps only to be met with a pizza delivery boy. Zan makes it clear that he uses his online presence to get fame and money for himself.

Zan also has a business partner, a small foul mouthed kid who sits at the back of his car who is sent out to actually deliver the pizzas to the door.

Paper Boi really does not know what to think.
