YouTuber ‘ricardogonhin’ uploaded a video on January 3, which showed their friend suffering from a hilarious slip-up in the midst of a VR game.

After being outfitted in the appropriate VR attire, ‘ricardogonhin’s’ friend went to pull a grenade from her utility belt in-game, accidentally pulling the pin from the weapon and throwing it.

The player attempted to run away from the ensuing explosion out of fear, but ran straight into a brick wall by the fireplace, instead – rather than using the joystick to carry her out of harm’s way.

The YouTuber went on to explain the event in the video’s description, writing, “This is why they start you out with Fruit Ninja. Friend tries VR for the first time and accidentally drops a virtual grenade, creating a real panic run for her life.”

The video prompted some commenters to ask about possible damage to the VR headset, thanks to the loud “crunch” that resounded throughout the living room after the player collided with the fireplace wall.

Ricardo appeared to admit that the gear had taken some dings, answering, “Well, lets just say we’re glad we got the extended warranty,” in response to the questioning.

This isn’t the first time a player has had a hilarious fail due to the wonders of virtual reality; plenty of users have gotten a bit too immersed in the experience, falling flat on their faces or getting scared out of their skin in overtly realistic horror games, a la Resident Evil 7.

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
