Penny Proud is completely mystified by her best friend’s fixation with Makeup Boy, who is widely regarded as the most popular cosmetics influencer on the internet. Penny’s desire to become an influencer leads to a rift between her and Makeup Boy in the second episode of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. Penny embarks on what can only be described as a holy war to get cancellations implemented. When she fires Makeup Boy for calling her pals “basic” and charging too much for photoshoots, she experiences true autonomy for the first time. Penny’s reasons for cancelling Makeup Guy were reasonable, but she learns an important lesson after cancelling most of her friends, school, and the movies. Let’s name the real-world influencer who provided the voice for Makeup Boy before we get to Penny’s life lesson.
Bretman Rock voices Makeup Boy in “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder”
Bretman Rock, a real-life beauty influencer with amassed 18.1 million Instagram followers, does the voice acting for Makeup Boy. Being an American of Filipino descent, Bretman is a unique individual. Although still young, Bretman has already achieved much in his 23 years. Bretman was the first openly homosexual man to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine, and he has been making popular material since the early 2010s.
Bretman appeared in his own MTV reality series called MTV Following: Bretman Rock before he made it to the cover of Playboy. The series 30 Days With Bretman Rock was MTV’s second collaboration with Bretman. Bretman cooperated with Wet n Wild on his cosmetics brand, much like Makeup Boy did in The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. The influencer has done work for the Michael Kors holiday campaign and appeared in the music video for Bella Poarch’s track on TikTok.
Regarding his social media postings, Bretman is just as honest and humorously sarcastic. Bretman said in an Instagram post, “I think I just received the best gift ever. Well, I did not buy it for anybody else, but still.” In the form of a pair of flamingo-pink Croc heels, this is the gift.
What exactly did Penny pick up from Makeup Boy’s experience?
On her way home from school, Kyla Pratt’s Penny meets an adorable beagle without an owner. Makeup Boy rides up on his scooter and approaches Penny, asking if she wants to adopt a beagle. He says he hasn’t been involved in dog rescue for publicity or influence but out of a sincere desire to save the animals.
Makeup Boy freely acknowledges he had allowed his influencer status to distract him from what was important. He cautions Penny to avoid such a fate. Penny realises that she has already failed at it. Penny feels terrible about her behaviour against Makeup Boy and apologises to her family. It means Makeup Boy was an influencer all along. It just wasn’t in the manner he anticipated. The first two episodes of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder are now available on Disney Plus.
