YouTuber and artist ‘ZHC’ is best known for customizing luxury items with impressive artwork, which he then gifts to top internet personalities — and his latest project involved the Hype House’s most famous TikTok stars.

Coming fresh from giving a customized Tesla to Mr Beast, ZHC’s newest initiative saw him purchase ten bags from luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton, with the intention of customizing each one of them for a famous TikToker.

Such an ambitious project requires equally ambitious artwork, and ZHC didn’t disappoint, choosing a fantasy monster theme for the entire array of bags, wallets, and even a full-sized suitcase.

The artist emblazoned the suitcase with a massive red dragon, choosing a selection of smaller monsters, and even another dragon dripping in donut toppings, for the other pieces, which he took to the Hype House to distribute.

Needless to say, TikTok creators Avani Gregg and Thomas Petrou were left dumbfounded by the surprise gifts, with Gregg calling the artwork “insane” and “crazy.”

However, none lived up to Addison Rae’s reaction to her custom backpack, which ZHC painted with various fruits like watermelon, bananas, and coconuts.

The star openly screamed when unboxing her gift, comparing the item’s new look to that of a popular mobile game of old.

“Oh my god!” she cried. “It’s like Fruit Ninja! …you’re so talented! Oh my gosh, I love it!”

Addison Rae unboxed Dixie D’Amelio’s own custom bag – and the TikToker couldn’t believe her eyes.

Although they weren’t at the Hype House at the time, Rae facetimed fellow TikTokers Charli and Dixie D’Amelio to unbox their own bags, who had equally shocked reactions to seeing the customized creations.

“I absolutely love that!” Dixie said, her mouth open in surprise. “I’m so happy!”

Nothing beats LilHuddy’s dragon-themed suitcase, though, who admitted that he would be using the bag quite often due to his hectic travel schedule.

ZHC’s mantra is “making the world a happier place by doing one nice thing for others at a time” — and he certainly lives up to this life mission, having brought smiles to internet celebrities and normal people alike throughout his illustrious YouTube career.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
