Popular YouTuber Brian ‘FaZe Rug’ Awadis took his viewers on a special trip in his January 20 video, giving everyone a guided tour of an incredible five-acre house in San Diego complete with a waterpark, basketball court, and a fully-functioning train.

With revenues and sponsorship growing among YouTube creators, it’s no surprise that some of the biggest names in the industry can boast some impressive properties, but FaZe Rug took things to the next level when he rented out a massive mansion in San Diego, California, spending $2,500 to rent the property for the night at what he claims is the “most expensive house” on the planet.

The property is currently valued at $9.9 million, and the YouTuber spent some time showing off the incredible house in his latest video.

Driving into the gated residence, Rug was immediately blown away, as the massive playground for children, volleyball court, and full-sized basketball court immediately came into view. To even see the waterpark, which includes two gigantic slides going into a massive pool, plus the soccer pitch, the YouTuber had to hop in a golf cart and drive around, as walking the five-acre property would take too long.

Not only does the main house have seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, but the property comes with two guest houses, and a studio apartment, meaning that a grand total of 44 people can stay on the premises, and with so many activities, it’s a major doubt that anyone would get bored.

Rug even managed to get behind the wheel of the train, driving around the complex while drawing carriages past all the incredible buildings and features of the house.

At night, the entire compound is lit with bright lights, with the water slides surrounded by colored LED strips, while the entire back garden turns into an incredible light show.

The main house can be rented out for $2,500 a night, and is currently on the market for anyone interested in owning one of the most luxurious and crazy houses in the world. Don’t expect to see FaZe Rug living here permanently though, as even he admitted it was too expensive for him.


Pokimane reveals plans for Twitch VODs after DMCA takedowns

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
