Popular YouTuber David Dobrik left music icon Nicole Scherzinger absolutely terrified when he gave her a ‘gift’ that turned out to actually be a skunk. 

YouTube vloggers don’t just solely video their daily routines over and over and put them online, others branch out and use their cameras to create content that is different from everyone else.

No one has epitomized that more than David Dobrik in recent months, as the leader of the vlog squad has teamed up with movie studios to give away toys, he’s handed out huge tips to people he used to work with, and even created a ‘world record’ with a foam explosion outside his own house.

Though with his newest quick-hit upload, he teamed up with Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger to make his own childhood dreams come true, as the pair sat in his Tesla and busted out the dance routine from the song ‘Buttons’. 

When the dancing fun and games were over though, Dobrik quickly teased Scherzinger with a ‘gift’ that required the singer to cover her eyes for a few moments. After a minute, the vlogger returned, dressed in a white hazmat suit and asked the singer: “Do you love animals?”

After giving a pretty quick and enthusiastic reply, Scherzinger removed her blindfold with a bit of trepidation and turned around to find a skunk being held aloft in the backseat. Dobrik seemingly got the reaction he wanted as the singer began screaming and looking completely terrified as the vlog drew to a close.

Even though the prank seemed to work pretty perfectly, the quick cut to end the vlog brought to an end what could have been a pretty hysterical and extended reaction from the pop star.

However, that didn’t seem to matter in the end as the pair shared their well wishes on Twitter after the fact, including a few photos of them together.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
