YouTuber Tanner Fox celebrated the upcoming launch of Season 3 for his channel by “ruining” his Nissan GTR with a new paint job.

Going into 2020, Fox has become sporadic with his updates, uploading just three videos in the first month of the new year.

In his January 29 video, he explained that he’s actually been sick with mononucleosis, which he’s been battling for over a week.

“I have been so sick in bed for the past week,” he began. “The doctor thinks I have mono. It’s not good. I’ve been puking. I’ve had the flu for the past week, like I’ve said.”

To help make up for some of the lost time, he came prepared with the announcement of “Season 3.” However, this reveal came at the expense of his beloved 1,000 horsepower GTR, which he decided to “ruin” with a fresh coat of paint.

He grabbed some painting supplies from his local Michaels arts and crafts store, came back home, and spent 25 minutes painting “Season 3” across the side of his car.

Season 3 is coming and his Fox’s GTR had to pay for it.

Although the vehicle can definitely be fixed, it doesn’t look like it’ll be appearing in many more future videos until the bombastic paint job is reverted.

Luckily, he has an alternative, as he revealed his new ride will be a Tesla Model 3, which he was able to get after trading in his Model X.

As for his schedule going forward, he mentions in his next video that he’ll go more in-depth about what viewers can expect – but promises to be more consistent with his uploads.

Fox picked up a Tesla Model 3.

“Maybe in the next video, I wanna talk about my schedule and how we’re going to be posting a lot more consistently and kinda go into all of that stuff,” he continued.

It’s no secret that the key to success on YouTube is having a regular upload schedule, and it’s clear that Fox sees that, himself.

In the description of his video, he teases possible collaborations with huge names like Mr Beast and FaZe Rug, so Season 3 very well could end up being his biggest and best yet.

Hilarious Forza Horizon 4 glitch sends cars into the stratosphere

Despite being two years old, Forza Horizon 4 still continues to throw up random glitches and bugs. Thankfully, most of them are hilarious one-off incidents, such as this glitch which occurred during a race. 

Most players of racing games such as Forza Horizon 4 have never considered blending the game with others such as Flight Simulator. However, the Mercedes-AMG G63 featured in the video below may have had a taster of what a collaboration between the two games may look like.

Glitches still regularly show up in Forza Horizon despite the game being around two years old. Many are posted to subreddits such as r/forza and r/forzahorizon, which is exactly how this video by user CheaterDust was discovered.

The glitch itself seems to have randomly occurred as a result of the G63 colliding with another car while in mid-air.

CheaterDust captured the screen recording while in a race, with his Mercedes X-Class taking on what appears to be the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Having drifted around a corner and through the checkpoint seen in the video, the two vehicles racing head-to-head enter into a rutted cross-country section of the circuit.

Once upon the rough terrain, the two vehicles gain ‘airtime’ from the jumps, and collide in mid-air. This seems to trigger a glitch in the game which sent the G63 flying into the air.

Since it was an AI vehicle there was no first-person footage from the G-Wagon of the incident, but even CheaterDust doesn’t seem to be able to believe what happened.

Having sent the G63 safely into the stratosphere, the Redditor keeps checking back to see if the car lands again. Eventually, after around six seconds, the Mercedes crashes back down to earth.

As if the damage from the glitch wasn’t enough to put the car out of the race, the G63 also dropped back several places in the race.

According to the poster, this glitch isn’t possible to replicate with another ‘human’ player, and can only happen to AI cars. Whether it is an issue with the physics engine or the AI engine specifically is unclear, but the results are undeniably hilarious.
