Merk has a naked room that needs serious decorating and Nyge is hungry for a blue check on Twitter. So, who the heck is going to help the two reach their social media and decor goals? None other than do-it-yourself YouTuber LaurDIY (a.k.a. Lauren Riihimaki)!

Nyge calls for backup in a mini ‘Agree To Disagree’ where Merk argues DC dominates over Marvel. Who comes in and saves his day? Actor Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (Bumblebee, Alita: Battle Angel) who’s been glowin’ up on the big screen — and pulls a Mr. Miyagi on his younger self.
