Shane Dawson recently launched a brand new series on his main channel, ShaneDawsonTV, called “Viral Infection”.

Shane, dressed as Shanaynay, reviews and mocks a series of YouTube videos in typical “viral video review” style.

Fans immediately recognized that Shane took “inspiration” from the style of Willam Belli, who also hosts a similar show on his channel, called “Beatdown” – a show Shane has also admitted loving.
