Audiences were shocked to see YouTube broadcaster Ebenezer ‘EBZ’ Lembe driving impaired while on the busy streets of Los Angeles in a late April 23 stream.

EBZ is known for his IRL streams that occasionally features appearances from ICE_Posiedon or other members for the rest of the Cx crew.

A new video shows EBZ on the road while his stream is on, though throughout the video it’s clear that he’s having difficulty keeping his attention steadily on the road.

EBZ YouTubeEBZ routinely streams from his car while talking to his stream, but normally in safer conditions.

Driving under the influence

The situation was evident to his audience that something wasn’t completely right with the streamer with many of his viewers saying EBZ was “drunk af” or that “he’s high not drunk.”

It’s unclear if the streamer was drunk or high, as his stream’s viewers were going back and forth between the possibility of the the two. Regardless, EBZ can be seen fumbling trying to stay awake, saying: “Tired, sleepy. I could use laying in my bed right now.”

There were multiple scenarios where the streamer had to stave off his eyes from shutting at 3:30 in the morning, sometimes having to jolt himself back up.

Desperate calls to stop the drive

Even though his stream was filled with viewers enjoying the late night outing, there was tons of people calling for EBZ to pull over and check into a hotel.

His stream’s chat were filled with messages akin to “Real talk, pull over” and “he’s going to crash man, this isn’t funny anymore.”

The streamer pressed on. At one point he can be seen driving over a small bump while he was yawning. Although that didn’t faze him, it was soon followed by a much bigger thud that shook him awake.

“Ahhh, okay,” EBZ said. “I’m up. I’m up. I’m up. I’m up.”

Moments later his head heavily dropped, forcing him to recollect himself but this time he wasn’t too confident, saying: “Wake up. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. That means wake up.”

The scenes from his broadcast were unnerving for his stream, but EBZ did manage to get to his destination and has since continued with his stream.

Froste wins Nadeshot Twitter bet to give 100 Thieves CEO hilarious tattoo

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag made a bet with streamer ‘Froste’ on Twitter. Get 100,000 retweets, and he’d get one of the most ridiculous tattoos ever. Froste took up the challenge, and won in just over 90 minutes, rallying the gaming community like never before.

Retweet challenges for free merch, ludicrous stunts, and other big things have gone viral before. However, none have gone as viral, as fast, and for as drastic a consequence, like Froste’s hilarious tattoo bet with Nadeshot.

It started rather simply. Nadeshot shared a photo of his new tattoo with the caption of “another one down, a million more to go until this arm is filled up.”

Froste took that “million more” as a challenge. “How many retweets on a tweet for you to get ‘Sex is temporary, gaming is forever’ tatted on you?” he asked.

Nadeshot set the bar at 100,000, confident that Froste wouldn’t win the bet because he “don’t have that type of pull.” Oh, how wrong Nadeshot was.

As soon as Froste called the gamers to assemble, thousands of retweets started pouring in. It started off with other 100 Thieves content creators like Valkyrae. Then, all the big names got in on it.

Ninja, CouRage, DrLupo, Timthetatman ⁠— even Zedd got in with their retweets. Esports orgs like Cloud9, G2 Esports, and Ninjas in Pyjamas helped out Froste with the bet too, and the CDL and Raven Software even took up the cause.

As the retweets kept flooding in, Nadeshot got more nervous.

“It’s already at 10k? You’re lying. You’re lying. It ain’t at 10k already. You’re lying,” he said on stream while the challenge was going down.

“First of all, Ninjas in Pyjamas, I respect everything you’ve done in this space. Used to be a fan when I was younger, but why did you retweet that and why are you in my chat,” he added later on, singling out the Swedish org.

“This is my body forever, and it was Froste ⁠— I didn’t think Froste was ever capable of bringing the gaming community together.”

Once it hit the point of no return, Nadeshot resigned to the fact that the gaming community hated him. Well, not really, but kind of. “Why are you guys doing this, I thought you were my friends,” he said on Twitter, dejected.

Then, when the moment finally ticked over, he turned on Arms of an Angel and wept on stream.

Will Nadeshot follow with the bet? Yes, yes he will.

“Just so I have it on the record; I haven’t decided where I’m going to get the tattoo, but yes, I’m a man of my word and I’m going to get the tattoo,” he said on stream.

He even raised the stakes. With Froste getting 100,000 with ease, Nadeshot believes he can go bigger and get a million. The prize? Picking where he has to get the tattoo.

“If it gets a million retweets, the internet gets to pick where I put it on my body — wait, besides my face! Besides my face,” he said.

Now, the community is holding their breath for what will be one of the greatest moments of 2021. Let’s just hope 100 Thieve’ sponsors don’t pull out after the hilarious stunt.
