David Dobrik always finds a way to make his short-form vlogs interesting and exciting, be it through pranks, wacky antics or, in this case, giving away thousands of dollars to unsuspecting random people.

Dobrik can often be seen giving away expensive gifts, such as cars or event tickets, to his friends thanks to brand deals from various companies.

This type of content has helped him blow up in recent years, and now he has taken that generosity to the wider world, giving money and gifts to random people across LA.

Instagram: David DobrikDavid with his long-time friend and assistant Natalie, alongside the Ford Bronco he gifted her for her birthday.

In his December 14 vlog, Dobrik and his Vlog Squad friends played out a couple of funny skits, including Dobrik hitting on his friend Nick Antonyan’s sister, Susie, and destroying the room they were filming in.

After this, though, David took out an undisclosed (but clearly large) amount of money from the bank before handing it out across Los Angeles.

He gave a large wad of cash to a fast-food waitress, bought car-full of flowers to hand out to random passers-by and also purchased a bunch of Apple products, including MacBooks, to a youth club in Burbank, to a chorus of screaming kids.

It’s almost unbelievable to think of the amount of money Dobrik must have spent to get this footage for his video – far in excess of tens of thousands of dollars if you only include the Apple products themselves.

It seems reasonable though – earlier in the video, Dobrik secured a brand deal with Bumble simply because his friend stated that she met her fiance on the dating app.

Though it wasn’t specified how much money he was offered, it seems pretty obvious that the figure was high given how much he was able to give away after.

In the midst of the holiday season, Dobrik was clearly in a giving mood, so you should expect to see some very similar content when Christmas day rolls around and he wants to make sure everybody he knows has an outstanding time.

It’s not yet clear how much David Dobrik spent to create this video, but there was evidently no expense spared to make sure the LA locals were treated very well and have their days made.

Twitch streamer mortified after showing his embarrassing search history

A small Twitch streamer was left embarrassed out of his mind after he accidentally revealed his search history during a recent broadcast.

Anyone who has ever streamed on Twitch is probably aware of how easy it can be to leak personal information. Direct messages, emails, files – anything on your computer screen can potentially be seen if you’re not careful.

While most experienced streamers take precautions to prevent sensitive content from being broadcast to the masses, others have to learn the hard way. Such was the case with ‘TisParker’ who revealed some awkward search history.

During a January 19 broadcast, the 20-year-old streamer clicked on the search bar in his web browser before taking a sip of his caffeinated beverage and cleaning his glasses.

Your search history is showing!

As this was going on, the seemingly oblivious streamer didn’t realize his search history was showing up, with the first query being “can you have sex in your car without breaking the law.”

The embarrassing search was spotted by viewers in TisParker’s chat who alerted the streamer.

“Search history, Parker!” he read before realizing what he had done.

He let out a soft gasp, closed the tab, and covered his mouth, clearly mortified by what he had allowed everyone watching to see.

For his part, however, the streamer was a good sport and laughed at his own misfortune. “MonkaS,” he said, referencing the sweaty pepe emote. “This is why we don’t Google stuff.”

Unfortunately, Parker deleted the rest of the VOD so we don’t know what else he had to say about revealing the search history, but judging by his reaction, he will be extra careful from this point on.

Of course, he is hardly the first streamer to show of their search history on stream. As Dexerto previously reported, Overwatch streamer ToxikLlama accidentally showed some awkward YouTube anime searches.

Given the content of both searches, it’s safe to say that although Parker’s was awkward, it could have been a lot worse. Just something to keep in mind for any aspiring streamers out there.
