One of YouTube’s most popular vloggers, David Dobrik, took viewers behind the scenes of the 2018 Streamy awards – and proved that he knows how to have a good time.

It’s got to be the feel-good video of the year: David Dobrik celebrated his Streamy nomination with a series of packed parties with his closest friends, giving viewers a slew of hilarious and unforgettable hijinks that he compiled in his 499th vlog.

The vlog opened up with one of these crazy moments, where an unidentified host vehemently kicked out a group of partygoers who were crowding her home. YouTuber Heath Hussar then mocked the host while (apparently) relieving himself outside, joking about her hysterical antics.

“I just wanna know what was so exclusive about that party,” he laughed. “I remember the first time I tried coke.”

The vlog also featured a hilarious conversation between YouTube couple Trisha Paytas and Jason Nash, who discussed the intimate side of their relationship in a comedic conversation (which we won’t transcribe here).

The squad then gathered in a party bus and broke it down to Hey Ya by Outkast – but things got a little weird when everyone started taking their shirts off.

Dobrik likewise made sure to capture his double Streamy wins, which were met with emotional celebration by the supporting cast of his vlog series. In fact, Vardon was so excited that he threw a chair over his head (which was thankfully caught by Dobrik in a moment of quick thinking).

Dobrik and company took home the Streamys for best Ensemble Cast and First Person.

Russian Instagram influencer torches his $150,000 Mercedes on purpose

An Instagram influencer literally set his own $150,000 Mercedes Benz on fire after he got fed up with how his local dealership was repairing it.

Several videos of Russian Instagram and YouTube star Mikhail Litvin torching the black GT 63 S went viral over the weekend, with people around the internet both amazed and horrified that someone has enough extra cash rolling around they can just send a luxury car up in flames.

But, Litvin’s display surprisingly wasn’t just a random instance of pure, nihilistic capitalism captured on film, as he claims he was sending a message to his local Mercedes dealership and the company as a whole.

The saga begins like this: Mikhail bought a brand new GT 63 S (running around $140,000 to $160,000) and somehow, broke the engine five times in a row through various automotive shenanigans.

Eventually, he became fed up with how his local Mercedes Benz dealership was repairing the vehicle each time he brought it in, even replacing the turbo kit with one purchased off of eBay at one point.

Paying to have sub-par parts installed in his car seems to have been the final straw for the Russian, who filled his trunk up with gasoline and brought plenty of cameras to a deserted field to send his vehicle off with a Viking funeral.

After bathing the car in fuel, Litvin lights a Looney Tunes-style trail from offscreen and the poor four-door goes up in a massive fireball.

Litvin made sure not to miss a spot.

After contemplating all the memories he had in the Mercedes while the inferno raged behind him, the YouTuber drove into the sunset with his new whip, a classic teal Lada that only needed a little bit of a running start to get going.

With over 11 million followers on Instagram and 4 million subscribers on YouTube, chances are good that Litvin will be picking up a fly new car sometime soon to replace the smoking heap that was his GT 63 S.

Exactly what he’ll replace it with remains to be seen, but we’d bet he’ll have a video out about it when he does.
