David Dobrik puts win streak on the line gambling $20k of friend’s money

YouTube sensation David Dobrik has a history of gambling huge amounts of his friends’ money in Las Vegas – and he put his streak on the line with $20,000 on the roulette table in his January 7 vlog.

In his first video of the year, David proved that he was only going bigger and better in 2020. He buried friend Jason Nash underground to “serve his head” to friends in a picnic. He once again tracked the ongoing struggles of friend Ilya Fedorovich to earn the love of his assistant Natalie Mariduena.

However, it was a journey he made with Natalie, Jason, Todd Smith and Jeff Wittek (all members of his revered Vlog Squad YouTube group) to Vegas that has taken the cake this time around, where he gambled $20k of Jeff’s money to keep up his insane win streak.

Jeff had apparently made a comment the night before that he wanted to do it, but seemed a little more reluctant the next day. As the journey started, he said “I didn’t want to do this anymore when I woke up.”

He then asked David how many times he’s won these big bets in a row, to which David simply said: “I haven’t lost.” And, at least how it appears in his vlogs, this appears to be true, as he has the most ridiculous luck you’ll ever see.

After saying he “doesn’t want to f**k up” David’s winning streak, they head out to Vegas to put $20k on black and, hopefully, double his money. And, of course, after a few tense moments watching the ball circle around the roulette wheel, it hits black and the group cheer and celebrate together.

Dobrik continues winning big money for his friends at the roulette table, which must help ease the pain when he isn’t randomly gifting them expensive items such as cars or vacation trips.

It’s things like this that have helped build David such a rabid fanbase, and also keeps his content fresh and exciting every time you watch.

Even though we all know, deep down, that he’s going to win again, there will always be curiosity over his gambling wins and how long he can keep it up.

With an extra $20k to add to his tally, David Dobrik might have found a new career in Vegas when he moves on from YouTube.


Former Vine star reveals truth behind iconic “Adam” meme

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
