Popular energy drink company G FUEL announced its new partnership with YouTube star Olajide William ‘KSI’ Olatunji on June 13.

G FUEL has partnerships with many famous YouTube and Twitch personalities, such as Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg, Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem, and Dr Disrespect – now KSI has joined the ranks.

The energy drinks company announced the partnership in a tweet on June 13, saying, “From knockin’ fools out in the ring, to tearin’ it up on the pitch, to droppin’ bars in the booth – There’s pretty much nothing that YouTube Superstar, KSI can’t do! And now, HE’S OFFICIALLY A MEMBER OF THE GFUEL FAMILY!!! LET’S FRICKIN GO.”

What flavor will KSI release?

A video accompanies the announcement, showing the YouTube star posing with a beaker of red G FUEL – presumably their Fruit Punch flavor.

FaZe Clan is notorious for its partnership with the energy drinks company, releasing ‘FaZe Clan’s Battle Juice’ back in January.

It’s interesting that G FUEL has partnered up with KSI, given his recent bout of drama with brother Deji Olatunji, but regardless, fans will no doubt be interested in seeing what flavor the 25-year-old will release.

KSI released his own announcement video

Following G FUEL’s Twitter announcement, KSI released an announcement video of his own onto his YouTube channel, titled ‘BULKING SEASON IS OVER.’

In the video, he is seen gearing up for a boxing match in a gym changing room, before drinking the brand’s energy drink and saying, “Why do I drink G FUEL? Because it gives me energy!”

KSI then walks through the gym, participating in various activities such as knife-throwing, and watermelon smashing, before knocking out a Logan Paul lookalike in the ring.

With so many influencers already on their long list of partners, there’s no telling who might be the next person to join up with the popular company.

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
