GP Explorer and TV: For many, the line is thin

If the month of September welcomed a ZEvent 2022 among all the records, the month of October is not far behind. Witness the GP Explorer, an F4 grand prix, organized by content creator Squeezie which was simply a success. The event, broadcast live but also on Twitch, brought together more than a million viewers simultaneously on the Amazon streaming platform. A record for a French-speaking streamer, who joins the top 5 personalities having mobilized multiple viewers at the same time.

An acclaimed event, therefore, with figures that would fear on television, which since its organization continues to raise comparisons with the small screen. This is mainly the newspaper Le Figaro which title an article “Twitch makes old TV for young people“. It must be said that the GP Explorer mobilized many more conversations than the Japanese Grand Prix or even Max Verstappen, who was crowned at that time …

“I’ll tell you it’s a TV show”

An observation also observed by the JoueurDuGrenier. The content creator, who recently became a dad and known for his gameplay sessions on old games that aren’t always excellent, was asked about the grand prize shortly after the event. In a Twitch stream (whose clip was trimmed and re-streamed in a Youtube video available below), here’s what he says.

If that’s the influencer’s opinion, I’ll tell you wow that’s great, for the internet it’s too good. If that’s my opinion, well, I’ll tell you, it’s a TV show. It’s just that we replaced Ferrari and Mercedes with NordVPN and Tik Tok and we replaced Leclerc and Verstappen with Amixem and Squeezie.

A shared response that does not forget to underline the growing notoriety of the Internet and the legitimacy of its creators towards some advertisers. Either way, everyone agrees that this Squeezie GP Explorer was a huge success. What to renew the adventure for next time?
