LazarBeam gets last laugh after triple-pranking MrFreshAsian’s stream

Popular YouTuber Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott was literally rolling on the floor laughing after he trolled MrFreshAsian’s Fortnite stream with not one, not two, but three pranks.

The Australian YouTuber, who shares an office with fellow streamer MrFreshAsian, captured his antics on his latest upload ‘Pranking My Friend’s Livestream’.

LazarBeam started by logging in to his victim’s Epic Games account on another computer, signing him out of his account in the midst of his stream. Then he went into the settings and deleted all the keybinds that he could.

LazarBeam has over 12 million subscribers on YouTube after a massive growth period in the summer of 2018.

However, MrFreshAsian managed to save his stream even when he was freefalling, replacing the majority of his keybinds before beginning a Fortnite solo match.

Lazarbeam wasn’t deterred though, returning the next day with another prank that literally popped off.

With a team of accomplices, the Australian filled MrFreshAsian’s streaming room to the brim with balloons. When the popular Fortnite streamer arrived, Lazar offered him a deal – he would get rid of the balloons, but only if the streamer got a victory royale.

Lannan didn’t make it easy, batting balloons around the office to distract MrFreshAsian upon every elimination. Yet MrFreshAsian ended up getting his victory, and celebrated in his balloon-filled room.

Lazar gave MrFreshAsian a knife to pop the balloons with, but little did he know that the blade would play a part in the final prank.

As a trick, Lazar’s friend and fellow YouTuber told MrFreshAsian to pop the balloons again with a knife before they hit the ground, saying it was for TikTok. .What MFA didn’t know was that one of the balloons was a water balloon and when he popped it and soaked himself, Lannan fell on the floor laughing.

Seconds before the trifecta of pranks was pulled off.

A perfect 3/3 from Lazarbeam, and a rough day overall for MrFreshAsian. But at least he got that Victory Royale.

Let LazarBeam’s latest antics be a lesson; never leave your streaming office unlocked if you share a space with other content creators.

Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
