SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, was left in disbelief after YouTube star David Dobrik pulled a stunt with his Model X that sent it flying over a speed bump in a Los Angeles suburb.

David Dobrik’s popularity on YouTube and social media has snowballed of-late. Mostly known for his generosity and comedic antics, millions tune-in to his vlogs in a bid to keep-up with his crazy lifestyle.

Dobrik often rolls around in his Model X as the designated driver for the Vlog Squad, but in his January 28 upload, he put Elon Musk’s flagship car to the test.

The flying Tesla challenge?

After watching Instagram stars, josh_ofthe_jungle and nickpasquale1919, fly over a speed bump on their motorbikes, the 23-year-old was urged not to let them mimic their efforts in David’s Tesla by Suzy.

Despite being warned off, David allowed the pair to ramp his vehicle over a speed bump as Suzy, Natalie and Jason watched on in disbelief. 

Elon’s reaction says it all…

David’s escapade caught the attention of Elon Musk on Twitter, who simply responded with an exclamation mark, to signal his utter surprise. 

The 23-year-old YouTube sensation responded with: “Does this mean my warranty is cancelled?” in a witty clap, sent back to the shocked Tesla CEO.

Dobrik casually went on to gift $10,000 to one lucky college student, alongside $25,000 to his Suzy’s Mom for her birthday.

While Elon might not have been too impressed with David’s impromptu Tesla stunt, it will have done wonders for advertising the Model X’s safety features. 

Considering the takeoff and landing, perhaps it could even give SpaceX’s Starship a run for its money?

Abby consistently challenges the boundaries of how far makeup can go in altering someone’s appearance, and if you thought she couldn’t turn into a cartoon, you thought wrong.

In her latest project, and potentially in the spirit of spooky season, Abby covered her entire face in blue and drew on a giant smile with terrifying teeth. She completed the look with a bright orange wig and a blue zip-up jacket.

In the Rick & Morty universe, Mr. Meeseeks is a creature that appears throughout the seasons. They are created to serve a singular purpose and will go to any length to fulfill that. When they do, they expire and vanish into the air. While they don’t sound so scary, fans of the show will know just how creepy and disturbing the creatures can be.

She captioned her video, “This is probably my scariest look this Halloween I’m sorry” and added “cause y’all needed some more nightmare fuel,” eventually admitting in a third and final TikTok that the look is “a regret.”

Halloween fanatics can expect exciting things from Abby in the countdown to October 31. Already this month Abby has shown off her amazing Harley Quinn cosplay, experimented with eye blood makeup.
