David Dobrik has embarrassed one of his best friends by putting a screenshot of his drunk texts to David’s assistant, Natalie, on a huge billboard in Los Angeles, California.

Dobrik is constantly finding new ways to make his content bigger and better, focusing on the activities of his friends and what they get up to on a daily basis. While this is often funny and fun for everyone, this time, one of them might be feeling a little embarrassed by it all.

The ex-boyfriend of Corinna Kopf, Todd Smith, may have some underlying feelings for Dobrik’s assistant Natalie Mariduena, and they all came out in a series of drunk texts one night. True to Dobrik’s form, he couldn’t let this go unnoticed and decided to share the texts with the entire city.

In the vlog posted on February 3, David films various different bits, skits and pranks with his friends, including having Jason Nash made-up as a very creepy-looking alien to scare the rest of them.

It was the drunk texts, though, that took center stage, as the popular vlogger exposed Todd’s seemingly desperate attempt to get Natalie to spend some time with him – apparently under the pretense that he is in love with her.

By the end of the video, Dobrik had put a screenshot of the texts on a huge Los Angeles billboard on Melrose Avenue, right next to an image of Todd’s face so everybody can be sure it’s him – with Todd and his friends’ reaction the stunt being absolutely priceless.

Reading out the texts, David and his friends laugh at messages asking if he can stay with her, telling her “you break my heart,” and finally announcing that he is “falling out of love” with her.

They’re the typical drunk texts you would expect to read from a love-stricken young man, and his flitting between being in love with Natalie and not being in love with her is something many will be able to relate to after a heavy night out.

However, given the scale of the situation now that it’s up on a massive billboard, Todd might be a bit more cautious about his drunk texts in the future.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
