After nearly a month of waiting, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has finally hosted YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s ‘Meme Review’ show – with the help of another special guest.

PewDiePie uploaded the episode on February 22, where he appeared to fake out fans by insinuating that ‘Fresh Prince’ actor Will Smith had hosted the segment, instead.

However, viewers were not disappointed, as both Musk and Justin Roiland of ‘Rick and Morty’ fame appeared for a ‘Bonus Meme’ portion of the show towards the video’s end.

A few of the memes reviewed by the duo poked fun at Elon, himself, including a photoshop of his face on rapper Post Malone’s head – which he took in good humor.

Musk even gave viewers a fun factoid about the word “meme,” noting that its origin stemmed from Richard Dawkins’ 1976 book ‘The Selfish Gene,’ who coined the phrase in relation to a “survival of the fittest” concept.

PewDiePie, YouTubeElon Musk and Justin Roiland reviewed memes on PewDiePie’s ‘Meme Reveiw’ show – and had a hilarious time, in the process.

Their collaboration seems to have helped the YouTuber rise above T-Series, who now sits at over 17,000 subs above the label – compared to his mere 9,000 sub gap earlier that very same day.

Elon showed interest in hosting PewDiePie’s show with a humorous Tweet in late January, where he was pictured holding aloft one of his famed flamethrowers in a show of mock intimidation.

While PewDiePie initially expressed some doubt as to the truth of Elon’s statement, it looks like the tech millionaire finally pulled through – with the help of Rick and Morty’s voice actor.

A bizarre clip of a Call of Duty streamer has emerged, where the player fired a full magazine of a gun out of his window after dying in Warzone, during his Twitch stream.

In an intense online game, particularly battle royales like Warzone, it’s all too easy to get increasingly frustrated when games don’t go your way.

However, one Twitch streamer, who was playing under the “Faze sWiisH” gamer tag, took his post-game rage a bit too far, by taking a break from his Warzone session to empty out a full clip of his gun on-stream.

Warzone has become quite competitive since its release on March 10.

During the streamer’s broadcast, his character was killed by an enemy in-game and, while he could still wait for his Duo to buy him back him at the nearest Buy Station, he proceeded to walk towards his window in the background of the stream.

After opening the window, the streamer picked up a semi-automatic pistol, firing a full magazine directly outside and placing the gun on the table before returning to his stream.

He continued to finish out the Duos session on Warzone but the clip stirred up a lot of controversy online in the following hours, with many discussing the streamer’s actions on Reddit.

Shortly after the clip was shared, an image of what was outside the streamer’s window emerged, highlighting that behind his house (the direction he fired) appears to be a large open field area, so hopefully, no person or property was at risk of being hit.

Despite the fact that the surrounding area seemed to be clear of people, his actions are still against the livestreaming platform’s community guidelines and can be punished by Twitch’s moderation team.

The clip has since been removed from Twitch but as of now, it is unclear whether this was the result of a ban from the platform or if it was the streamer’s doing.
