Twitch streamer PUBG, and DayZ amongst others, building up a fanbase of almost 2.5 million followers Twitch followers in that time.

With the release of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, LIRIK decided to pick up the game and give it a whirl with many other streamers doing the same thing on its November 5 release. But LIRIK faced an unlikely issue during his stream.

Rockstar GamesRed Dead Redemption 2 launched on PS4/Xbox in October 2018, and Windows PC in November 2019.

Opting to traverse the wild west on horseback, rather than simply walking or running, LIRIK attempted to make his way up a small hill, but it proved to be too much for his steed.

The horse crumbled as he approached the apex of the hill, falling backward and knocking protagonist John Marston onto his back, rolling away in heaps from each other, with LIRIK clearly baffled, saying: “Jesus, man, what are you doing?”

When it became apparent the horse wasn’t getting back up, the streamer sadly proclaimed, “F**k, I’ve already killed my first horse,” before acquiring a new one and doing the exact same thing on the other side of the hill.

This isn’t the first time LIRIK has struggled with riding a horse – at the start of 2018, he faced a similar issue while streaming Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

It’s safe to say that LIRIK isn’t the most successful horse-rider in gaming, but this Red Dead Redemption 2 clip definitely seems like a freak accident that you wouldn’t expect to happen once, let alone twice.

Maybe, with some practice, he’ll be able to fine-tune his horse-riding skills and save any more horses from meeting a nasty end.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
