TikTok star Addison Rae became emotional after YouTube star Zachary ‘ZHC’ Hsieh gifted her a white Jeep – the 19-year-old’s dream vehicle. 

ZHC is one of YouTube’s fastest-growing creators, sitting at nearly 12.5 million subscribers at the time of writing. He has become known for his incredible generosity, regularly sharing gifts with his friends and followers.

On May 29, he shared a video in which he gifts TikTok star Addison Rae an awesome white, custom Jeep, her all-time dream car. Rae is best known for her dancing TikToks, recently breaking into the top-5 most followed accounts on the Chinese social media site.

One thing Rae has shared with her fans in the past is her dream car, a white Jeep. It seems like ZHC took note of these wishes, sharing the video to his YouTube channel.

Once the YouTuber got his hands on the Jeep, he and his friends took to customizing it in a creative way. The sides became decorated with colorful fruit, around an Addison Rae sticker on the car’s bonnet.

The 19-year-old TikTok star couldn’t believe her luck when the Jeep was gifted to her. “Oh my god!” she exclaimed. “Oh my god, stop. I love this. I’m literally about to cry. Y’all are so thoughtful, y’all are so nice.”

She became emotional when taking a closer look at the Jeep, much to the delight of ZHC and his friends, who went the extra mile to ensure Rae’s dream car was perfect.

“Y’all are like the nicest people I’ve ever met,” she cried. “I did not expect the sides! This is so crazy, that is so good. Oh my gosh, this is like way better than I could have ever imagined.”

The video is the latest in a long line of philanthropy from ZHC, who has proved once again his willingness to share his wealth and give back to his YouTube community.

He’s taken inspiration from other popular Vloggers like David Dobrik, who have made a habit out of giving away expensive freebies to their friends and fellow creators.

Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast have been left frustrated after episode #1572 with Moxie Marlinspike was uploaded exclusively to Spotify, with many feeling “cheated” by the apparent business move.

Joe Rogan has become one of the most popular podcasters on YouTube, with his channel accumulating over 965,000,000 views and 10 million subscribers since its launch in 2009.

Rogan has become well known both on the internet and in celebrity spheres, and has hosted a wide variety of superstar guests, such as the likes of Kanye West and Elon Musk.

Many huge stars have graced Joe Rogan’s podcast studio, including Kanye West.

However, many grew concerned back in May after he announced that the podcast would be making a move exclusively over to Spotify. Up until now, episodes have been accessible in full along with highlights on the Joe Rogan Experience YouTube channel.

But as of December 2, full episodes of the podcast are exclusively available on Spotify. In highlight clips from recent episodes that have been uploaded to YouTube, the description reads “this clip is taken from the Joe Rogan Experience #1572 with Moxie Marlinspike – Now exclusively on Spotify.”

In the comment section of the YouTube clip, fans released their frustration towards the exclusive move. “It’s been a hell of a ride guys. See ya,” one viewer said. One fan said “bye” to the podcast with their comment “This feels like a break-up, and I feel cheated, for a richer guy. Bye JRE.”

Another disappointed viewer revealed that while they tried listening to the show on Spotify, they couldn’t handle the “ten straight minutes of ads” and said they would not be paying for a premium account just to listen to one podcast.

Rogan has previously spoken about his good relationship with Spotify after they were criticized for alleged censorship in October. In episode 1544 Rogan called them “a great company,” saying “they’re open-minded, they treat their employees very well,” and stressed that “in terms of then silencing me, zero. There’s been nothing.”

The move over to Spotify has certainly brought about some dissatisfaction among fans of the show, though precisely how much impact this will have on his audience numbers remains to be seen.
