In the digital age, plenty of rare moments have been caught on camera and shared with the world, but this FIFA scene, Edwin ‘Castro1021‘ Castro has amassed over 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube and nearly 2 million followers on Twitch. 

No amount of experience on camera could have prepared him for what was about to happen in the midst of a recent broadcast however.

According to the National Geographic, there is a one in 700,000 chance of being struck by lightning yet Castro came within inches of being that unlucky in his October 24 stream.

Streaming FIFA with his brand new setup, the popular content creator was absolutely mortified after a loud crash of thunder and a bright streak of lightning hit all at once.

Did you see that? That was lightning bro,” he screamed, running back into frame after the bolt of lightning cascaded down on-stream. 

“My monitor doesn’t even turn on anymore, what the f*ck is going on?” the FIFA player amusingly added upon realizing that part of his new streaming setup was impacted in the incident.

Castro soon found his way back in-game and continued streaming for a few hours longer, despite the technical difficulties he endured on behalf of the lightning-induced disaster.

Whether the electrical surge improved his odds of opening some insane packs in FIFA remains to be seen, but after a close call like that, perhaps the streamer should try his luck.

Castro rose to internet stardom with his exceptional FIFA gameplay and hilarious reactions when opening packs throughout the years. 

Hopefully, he can get back to his old ways with the new streaming setup and avoid any other absurd strokes of misfortune in the near future.


KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
