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.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
