YouTuber Danny Duncan has left his home in tatters after bringing a baseball pitching machine indoors and practicing his swing.

Duncan is known for his pranks and high-energy videos, which typically consist of doing questionable things such as cutting the roof of his Tesla or jumping off of bridges into the lakes beneath.

That said, whatever he’s doing clearly works, as he has racked up over 4.4 million subscribers on the platform and he accumulates millions of views with every video he puts out.

Danny is known for his funny pranks and dangerous stunts.

Now, Danny has decided to bring that energy indoors, putting a baseball pitching machine in his kitchen to perfect his swing.

As you could imagine, the room didn’t end up looking pretty by the time he was done, though that probably wasn’t the aim anyway.

As balls were fed into the pitching machine, the content creator was taking swings at each and every one, occasionally hitting himself or others around him but, more importantly, doing some serious damage to the house.

By the end of the video, you can see that some purchases are going to have to be made, as huge, baseball-shaped dents lined the walls of the room and the windows directly opposite him look to be on the verge of smashing to smithereens.

It became a little more concerning when Danny’s niece, Isabelle, turned up and there was glass lining one side of the room from the cracked windows and smashed lightbulb, but she seemed happy enough with it. Though, she didn’t exactly approve of the new decor, asking Danny why he “broke the house.”

While this might be entertaining, you’ve got to wonder what Danny could do next – and needless to say, whatever it is, it will probably be as fun as it is stupid.

Cyberpunk 2077 stands by streamers amid Twitch DMCA controversy

The Cyberpunk 2077 team at CD Projekt RED have confirmed that streamers will not have to worry about the new heavy DMCA regulations on Twitch when streaming their game, as the soundtrack has been built from scratch.

Twitch streamers were left frustrated and worried on October 21, after a wave of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) warnings were sent regarding their past VODs and clips, with some even being deleted.

Creators are now resorting to drastic measures to protect their channels and ensure their ability to upload future content, after it was discovered that past streams are now being picked apart. For many that means erasing the vast majority of their old content.

This included popular streamer Pokimane who said “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

This is concerning particularly for gaming streamers, who may play a game like Grand Theft Auto, where copyrighted music is played in the game world, through car radios etc. But the team behind the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077 have eased that concern for their upcoming game.

Twitch variety broadcaster DansGaming asked the developers whether the game would have a “streamer mode” that would allow creators the “option to mute Copyrighted Music that is licensed for the game so content creators don’t get DMCAs.”

The team replied that while there are more details to come in the near future, “our soundtrack has been created from the scratch – this includes all tracks from the numerous artists we work with. Their music has been made specifically for our game making this a bit smoother hopefully.”

This is no doubt a huge relief to both creators and the developers, as streamers will be able to dive into what looks to be one of the biggest games of the year worry-free, and devs will be able to benefit from the amazing community that can emerge thanks to streamers.

Streamer DrLupo praised the developers, saying “they gave the go-ahead to content creators, they’re f**king smart, they made it all [the music].”

CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure RPG, set in the dystopian Night City, and is due to release on November 19.
