A Logan Paul fan was left close to tears in the gym after his hero randomly surprised him with a $10,000 gift, in an emotional, Dobrik-esque moment in his latest vlog.

Giving away money and gifts isn’t a new concept by any means, but saw a surge in popularity on YouTube with the likes of MrBeast and David Dobrik, who enjoyed a huge uptick in subscribers and views when they started giving away ludicrous gifts or cash amounts.

Now, Logan Paul has joined in on the action, giving away $10,000 out of his own pocket to an unsuspecting fan.

Each month, Logan Paul gives away $10,000 to a random member of the Maverick Club – his exclusive subscription-based group that get access to exclusive content that won’t be seen by YouTube, merchandise, discounts and, obviously, giveaways.

While Maverick Club members are spread across the world – and still tucked away at home thanks to the ongoing global health crisis – Paul usually wouldn’t be able to surprise his fans in person, but he had the opportunity here and it paid off.

Having found the gym that his fan Jesus frequents, Logan decided to go on a hunt for him, eventually finding him after an “anonymous tip-off.”

After pretending that they had just met by coincidence, Paul finally revealed the real reason that he was there.

“I’ve got to be honest with you,” he told Jesus. “This entire thing is a setup. I knew you were working out here and I came to tell you that you’re the winner of this month’s $10,000 giveaway.”

Still in complete disbelief, he have his favorite YouTuber a warm embrace, and Jesus said that he’s “trying to hold back tears” while wiping his eyes. The extra cash was obviously huge for him – especially considering he had just lost his job due to the health crisis.

Both Jesus and Logan look delighted with what went down, and you can see how much it meant to both of them – and that might just be the best Maverick Club advert Logan Paul could ever do.

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.

The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.

He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.

Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
