YouTube star Logan Paul is trying to get rid of two ostentatious pieces of furniture in his home — but it looks like his efforts are yielding some unexpected (and hilarious) results.

Throughout the past few weeks, Paul has been advertising his two Mercedes Benz couches in his vlogs, which are essentially shaped like croissants in a unique formation resembling the letter C.

However, they are apparently unbearably uncomfortable, as well as full of saliva and fur from his pet dog, Blue, prompting the YouTuber to try and sell the furniture and replace it with something new.

YouTuber Logan Paul revealed that he’d purchased the Mercedes Benz couches for $90,000 three years ago, and is ready to get rid of the furniture.

It doesn’t seem that his efforts are exactly coming to fruition, though, as he revealed that he had been unable to pass off the furniture, which he originally purchased three years ago at a whopping $45,000 apiece.

Now, he’s trying to sell the couches for a much lower price point, putting them up on Craigslist for a humble rate of $20,000 — but buyers are apparently not as interested in bidding for the pieces as they are in roasting their current owner.

Logan and the gang read through some of the ad’s more humorous replies in his April 1 vlog, revealing some gut-busting burns that left the entire squad in stitches.

Paul cited discomfort – as well as his dogs’ antics on the luxury furniture – as reason for wanting to get rid of the expensive couches.

“Ain’t nobody gonna pay $20k for that ugly piece of s**t,” one user emailed in response.

Another buyer cited Mike Majlak’s overtly physical relationship with his girlfriend as part of their reasons for avoiding the furniture: “For real tho, I was sorta interested until I started to actually f**king think for once. Ahh, Logan’s life is f**ked.”

“Hey Logan, bro, no one’s going to buy the couch so go s**k a d**k,” another taunted.

While these messages may have been brutal, they were all done in good fun, leaving the gang with a decent laugh in spite of their efforts to finally get rid of the couch set.

For now, it looks like Logan will be holding on to his furniture for a little while longer — even if it’s so uncomfortable that Mike would rather “sit on a cactus.”

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
